Property Description

Set within the Loch Lomond and The Trossach’s National Park and beside the historic West Highland Way, just outside the picturesque village of Drymen, this is an outstanding opportunity to acquire a mini estate extending to some 14 acres with Gateside House at the heart.

Situated in one of Scotland’s hottest tourist trails, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a versatile mini estate brimming with income generating opportunities with around 100,000 customers a year passing your door.

Extending to circa 8500square feet, Gateside House would make both an excellent family residence or, subject to change of use, a boutique hotel and wedding venue. The home itself is set within beautiful mature garden grounds with a variety of flowering species. It could also be utilised as a bed and breakfast as well as a family residence.

Foxglove Cottages are three well established, five star self-catering holiday cottages with three double, ensuite bedrooms, set within a separate private cul-de-sac. Our clients have successfully rented these properties for many years and have many returning customers. Foxglove Cottages provide superb, flexible, family sized accommodation which are well presented and ready to go as an ongoing business concern.

Our clients have been in consultation with the local planning authorities and have gained planning permission to build a road house/hotel within the grounds of the estate which would provide six bedrooms of accommodation, restaurant dining along with construction of seven further lodges within the hotel grounds.

There are two areas of fallow land which have scope for further development subject to necessary permissions to provide glamping or outdoor pursuits.

Gateside House was built by Archibald Murdoch McQueen in circa 1858. In 1888 the house was subsequently extended with the addition of ‘The West Wing’. The house was built from local red sandstone. The entrance to the estate is gained via handsome red sandstone pillars and an impressive tree lined driveway leads to the magnificent, Victorian mansion house. Over the years, the home has had only five residents in its history including the Osborne Henry Maver family who formed the Glasgow Citizens Theatre. When the bombing of the Clyde and the surrounding district during the Second World War, Drewsteignton School was relocated to Gateside and post war, it became the family residence for Sir Maurice Denny who was a renowned ship builder on the Clyde whose company built significant ships including the Cutty Sark and the SS Sir Walter Scott.

There is the opportunity to buy the entire estate and treat it as a fantastic family residence with the benefit of existing and potential income streams making it a fabulous potential family enterprise. Clients could also consider making further investments into the construction of what we have outlined above and then sublet the properties to another party. Our client’s preference is to sell the property in its entirety, however, may consider selling individual lots dependent upon potential buyers appetite.
