Shanta Residential are delighted to present to the market this one of a kind, countryside property in Howwood. Surrounded by approximately 9 acres of private gardens, grazing, outbuildings, stables, and an outdoor riding arena this property is a rare find and offers a wonderful family home with a modern country feel. This beautiful house dates from the 17th Century and was designed as a hunting lodge. A sympathetic program of modernisation and redecoration has produced an elegant period home with a stylish contemporary interior. The specification of this home includes mains electricity, a septic tank providing drainage, a private water supply with filtration system and LPG gas. The main gardens are laid mostly to lawn and mature shrubbery with fantastic views of the West Dumbartonshire hills in the distance.

The main entrance to the property is via a modern double glazed conservatory and into the beautiful open plan kitchen and dining space. The kitchen has been well laid out and offers an open space to socialise and cook. This space has modernised in a traditional style. The wood worktops and central island with its inlaid Victorian style sink and the Range style cooker are particular highlights.

A broad inner hallway has entrance to the cozy family room which overlooks the front gardens. This space has a fabulous log burner and really creates a warm family feel.

The drawing room is a stunning room and a true stand out feature to this amazing property, with exposed timber beams and a feature fireplace this lounge is a breath-taking space.
