Graeme Lumsden, Estate Agency Director/Valuer at BLACK HAY comments – “ The perception of a Luxury Home can appear to be easily satisfied by those 2 words - Luxury Home. In reality, to the discerning buyer, luxury means much more than just the word.
With 35 Years in the property industry I know that Cala Homes are still highly regarded as a Builder of Luxury/High Quality Homes. No 1 Shanter Wynd has been owned from new by its current owners, featuring Cala’s original luxury specification. Today’s specification will undoubtedly be different however No 1 retains its rare sizeable accommodation, secluded setting, prestigious address …and of course it’s still a Cala Home …one can imagine if it was being built today ...what sale price would Cala set?
In my view, quite simply an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a fabulous Detached Luxury Home.”

To the rear, 2 further bedrooms – No 5 of double size whilst bedroom No 6 is of good size single. A stylish 4 piece main bathroom is centrally positioned on the upper level to the rear.

Graeme Lumsden, Director/Value of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments…
“ Having sold thousands of homes over my 37 years within the property industry, I never underestimate the value of space, in particular the space around your home …noting that typical New Home Developments (as seen nearby) often display properties shoe-horned together as builders seek to maximise their profit versus the price paid for the land & building costs.
Refreshingly, Teallach enjoys its own space, nestling amidst its larger private gardens. It will be of particular appeal to those clients seeking a larger Modern Detached Home which can accommodate an existing/growing family or offer flexible space in which to entertain/work from home. In addition, its flexible layout allows one to re-configure the existing layout whilst the existing double garage or space to the rear offer further development potential (subject to required planning permission etc).
In my view Teallach is a home for now and the future …you won’t grow tired of having space in which to live. ”

Graeme Lumsden, Estate Agency Director/Valuer at BLACK HAY comments -
" In my view the allure of a seafront home and its ever changing sea views remains unmatched. After 35 years in the property industry my heart still skips a beat when I arrive at a seafront home and catch sight of the sea views which the owners can sometimes grow familiar with ...yet, perhaps with my family connection to the Mull of Kintyre I yearn to live by-the-sea ...many an hour immersed in the changing seascape ...and when you need to actually feel/breathe the sea at Cladach ...unlock the gate at the end of the garden and literally a pebble's throw away... the sand dunes beckon, and you are there ...walking the beach, whatever the weather ...water rippling or white-horses racing ashore on stormy days.
I live in the country with wonderful views, cows with their inquisitive heads looking over the hedges and a red squirrel that visits most days ...yet, what would I give for a home by-the-sea? The successful buyer of Cladach will, in my humble opinion ...be living their dream (and mine!) "

The well proportioned apartments are laid out over 2 levels, offering flexibility as required – normally utilised as 3 Public/5 Bedrooms however the current owners are working from home and make use of 2 of the bedrooms as separate “home offices”. If needed, the integral double garage also allows further expansion within the footprint of the existing property – subject to required planning permission etc.
Internal viewing reveals a comfortable & adaptable family home, comprising on the ground floor, a welcoming reception hall with useful “downstairs” wc off, a spacious bay windowed lounge to the rear, a separate dining room to the front, whilst to the rear a semi open-plan style dining/breakfasting room (patio doors from here onto private/screened rear gardens) with feature archway opening onto a larger fitted kitchen which has a welcome separate utility room (access from here to the integral double garage), bedroom No 5 (currently a home office - alternatively a “guest bedroom” or informal tv-room) is situated to the front.

The rear gardens are attractively presented, of sheltered courtyard style, inviting outdoor use when the weather permits. The private driveway provides off-street parking whilst also leading to a detached double garage with remote door access (noting that having been the sales office it is lined/features downlighting etc.).
In our view, quite simply… a Modern Luxury Home of immense appeal to those seeking a true Luxury Detached Villa able to accommodate an existing or growing family, or as with the current owners …a very comfortable home which a couple can choose to enjoy privately or welcome family/visitors.
