Gap on the Move



Mossgavel is a charming detached house of traditional random stone construction under a pitched slated roof and further extended in more recent times. The house is of 1½ storey formation and provides an excellent range of accommodation providing ample space which could be adapted for a variety of family requirements.

At present the house is arranged as follows: Entrance Vestibule; Hallway; Dining Room or Sitting Room; inner Hallway; Bathroom and Study/side porch; fitted Kitchen; 5th Bedroom (or further reception room); impressive and spacious Living Room. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms which can all be fairly described as doubles and a Shower Room.

The present owners have further extended the accommodation footprint by way of extending through into what was originally attached outbuildings. This extended element is accessed from the living room and this new space comprises a wet room, bedroom and a living room cum kitchen.

The house is double glazed predominantly in uPVC casements with the exception of the Velux windows which are in timber casements. Central heating is by way of oil.

The front garden is south facing and is laid in lawn. There is a covered outdoor sitting area at the front of the house from where the excellent views can be enjoyed. The garden ground continues round on the west side of the house. At the rear of the house there is a large level area providing extensive parking. Here can be found a substantial double, twin bay garage with further attic floor. The garage offers further scope for conversion to provide further accommodation.

Mossgavel is situated amidst delightful rural surroundings and enjoys a wonderful southerly view across adjoining farmland towards the distinctive outline of Knockdolian Hill. The property lies on a slightly upland position located between the villages of Ballantrae (about 2½ miles) and Colmonell (approx 3.9 miles). Particularly from the upper bedroom windows there is a great aspect through the glen towards Ballantrae Bay. On a clear night the lights across in Ireland can be clearly seen. Mossgavel stands on a narrow country lane (B734) and in the aforementioned villages there are primary schools. Ballantrae has a shop, post office, garden centre with tea room, doctors surgery, bowling green and a small harbour.

A lovely country property in a very pleasant location.
