Situated along one of Scotland�s busiest tourist routes awaits an extremely rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a versatile home and a lucrative business with income generating opportunities.
Springburn House was built around 1991 by locally acclaimed, Roddy Campbell of Campbell Home Builders and extends to approximately 396sq mtr. Springburn forms an excellent family residence and with the appropriate permissions a boutique style bed and breakfast. Additionally there are two beautiful, independent cottages and two building plots each with outline planning permission, all available as one lot. This is the first opportunity since the original build that this development has come onto the open market.
Springburn is a prestigious and modern property with generously proportioned rooms throughout and boosts a superb position with fabulous views over croftland, Ben Nevis, Nevis Range and the Grey Corries.
The cottages were added to the development around 1998 and historically they have been let as self-catering holiday cottages each cottage provides superb, flexible, family sized accommodation in the form of 2-3 bedrooms which are beautifully presented and prepared to enable the new owners to generate an immediate income. Our clients have successfully rented these cottages for 19years with many returning guests. It should be noted that there is an application underway for a change of use to each cottage from holiday let to residential.
There are two areas of land each with outline planning permission to build a residential home and which have scope for development and subject to the necessary change of permission could provide for glamping, equestrian or other outdoor pursuits. There is the potential to purchase up to 18 acres of croftland for such pursuits under separate negotiation.
Our client’s preference is to sell the developments in its entirety. A fantastic opportunity for a family residence and business with the benefit of existing and potential income, however, they may consider selling individual lots.
