Former parsonage, nr Lock Awe, Argyll

This handsome Scottish rectory was sent to me by reader Ed, who is clearly already at the pre-planning stage of renovation daydreaming...
Not sure what I'd do with the layout: possibly knock through the sitting room and kitchen to make one big kitchen/diner/family room, as is the fashion these days
I'd be tempted to jimmy an en suite in there somewhere, but can't see a way of doing that without ruining the proportions of the bedrooms?
That's such a fun bit: re-imagining how you would fit that space around you. Love it!
St James Parsonage, overlooks tiny Ardbrecknish on the banks of the gorgeous Loch Awe.
The 1930s house has three reception rooms and a kitchen downstairs, four bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. Every room has an original fireplace and there are lovely period details throughout (and also some rather less attractive damp bits).

Outside is a garden and the detached garage/bothy below, and the whole thing is pretty isolated - tho' close enough to the B840 to restock on 80 Shilling...

On the market through Bell Ingram at offers over £145K. Details here and here.
