Space, comfort and style can be found at Aonach Mor

A substantial bespoke architect-design home is now available in the heart of Scotland’s central belt.

Presented for sale by Rettie and Co, Aonach Mor is an exceptionally spacious home, which was thoughtfully designed, by the present owners, to support a most comfortable family lifestyle. Built in 1991, the house was finished to a high specification, incorporating modern conveniences, such as double-glazing and under floor heating, and bespoke aesthetic features, including cornicing and traditional-style fireplaces.

The house itself is centred within a generous plot, with an impressive approach off the leafy residential street. A pair of wrought-iron electric gates open onto a block-paved driveway, which arcs around a formal lawn, towards the house, before returning to a second pair of electric gates onto the street. The driveway is flanked by traditionally-styled street lamps and low-level lighting, and expands at the foot of the house, providing extensive space for car parking.

The striking red-brick façade of Aonach Mor, is set beneath a pan tiled roof and distinguished by leaded window panes and quoins. An impressive stone-pillared porch is set to the centre, sheltering the main entrance.
