Luachrach is a Sir Robert Lorimer-designed property with views out over Luachrach Loch and the island of Mull in the distance. Dating from about 1929, the house is of mainly brick construction with painted harling under a slated roof and has accommodation over two stories.

The house has been recently renovated and offers pretty spaces both for family life and entertaining friends. The main sitting room has a log-burning stove and a feature box window with westerly views; the dining room is semi-open plan from the sitting room and has wonderful oak flooring. There is a guest bedroom on the ground floor. Wrapping around the house is the bespoke wooden garden room which has a flagged floor and doors out to the gardens. Upstairs are the upper hall and the master bedroom, plus the second guest bedroom.

Outside are custom-built stables with three insulated loose boxes and a hay store, and a heated tack and feed-prep room, as well as an old boathouse.

He gardens are laid mainly to lawn and feature a number of colourful shrubs, and an equine turn-out area just before the stables. There are about 16 acres of rough grazing and 34 acres of mature woodland with broad leafs at the fringes. Directly in front of the house is a pretty lochan which holds brown trout.

Luachrach is just two miles from the West Highland town of Oban, which is a gateway to the Western Isles and has a good range of shops and services and the closest golf course is just a few hundred yards.

The guide price is £725,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 0141 225 3880 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
