The Property Corrie Mhor is a bespoke property, designed in 1999 by local architect, Andrew Finlayson. Partially clad in shiplap timber and rough cast render under a pitch slate roof, overhanging eaves and cast iron rainwater fittings give character to the house, the front elevation of which is finished in local stone. Inside high quality finishes, including spalted beech doors, oak flooring and exposed beams lend traditional charm, balanced with modern conveniences of oil fired central heating, partial underfloor heating and double glazing throughout the property.

The front door opens into a bright, spacious double-height entrance hall with a tiled floor. A feature of the hall is the church style archway with carved oak corbels, two tiffany-style ceiling lights and a timber cloak cupboard. A pair of large astragal glazed doors leads into the garden room: a triple aspect, double height room with timber panelling to dado height level and natural light from two sets of facing double astragal high level windows. The room also features a tiffany-style lamp surmounting a high overhead fan.

The Kitchen/Breakfast Room has been well designed with stained wooden floor and wall units topped with a double- thickness granite work surface and Belfast sink with mixer tap. There are integrated wine racks, book shelving and display cabinets. The range of quality appliances includes an Aga with three electric ovens and a six-ringed gas hob, a DeDietrich American style fridge/freezer, microwave and steam oven and integrated Siemens dishwasher. There is ample room for a dining table by the Astragal windows. A glass-panelled door opens out to a patio area for outdoor dining.

Double doors lead from the entrance hallway into the generously proportioned drawing room which has raised ceiling, timber beams, and wood burning stove with solid stone surround, hearth and wood mantle. The room is triple aspect with double height astragal windows providing a stunning outlook over the garden towards the distant mountains dominated by Ben Vorlich. French doors open onto a patio area, suitable for alfresco dining, BBQ or socialising. Another pair of double beech doors access the kitchen/ breakfast room.

A corridor links the entrance hallway with the principal bedroom which has three built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room with, ‘his and hers’ washbasins and a bidet. Leading off the corridor is a dining room, a study/Bedroom with a built in wardrobe and a large family bathroom with separate bath and Mira XL shower, pedestal wash hand basin and WC. The corridor also accesses three deep storage cupboards all with spalted beechwood doors. In addition there is a W.C. and cupboard housing central heating boiler. A Utility Room completes the accommodation at this level, with linen storage cupboard, Belfast sink and mixer tap, as well as space for a washing machine and tumble dryer beneath a beech work top.

From the corridor or inner hall, a staircase rises up to a bright landing/study area lit by a Velux window. On the upper floor are two comfortable Double Bedrooms, both double aspect, each benefitting from dormer windows and one with a fitted wardrobe. They share a generously proportioned bathroom with matching three piece suite which includes bath with shower attachment, pedestal wash hand basin and WC.
