Unique Cottages is pleased to announce the addition of a property designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh to its exclusive holiday property portfolio.
The two bedroom, aptly named,‘Rennie Mackintosh Retreat’ (http://www.unique-cottages.co.uk/cottages/central/perthshire/the_rennie_mackintosh_retreat) is situated in the small village of Comrie, on the river Earn, nearly 40 miles north of Glasgow where the great man usually lived and worked.
The legendary Scottish Architect and Designer was commissioned to redesign the 18th century property after it was ravaged by fire at the beginning of the last century. With his great skill and imagination, Charles Rennie Mackintosh oversaw the rebuild of this unique townhouse incorporating his own inspirational style.
“With only approximately 3,800 buildings in Scotland A-listed the ‘Rennie Mackintosh Retreat’ offers a rare opportunity to stay in a building of great architectural and historic importance. Unique Cottages are very pleased to introduce it to our collection of exclusive holiday properties.” said Mark Breed, Managing Director of the agency.
As well as having features including a staircase, fireplaces , door and windows which are quiet obviously the creation of Mackintosh, copies of his hand written note book detailing his work are on display in the house for guests to see.
Although it is not known exactly why the famous Mr Mackintosh took a project in the village of Comrie, it is thought that a friend of his owed the property, and that his involvement was by way of a favour. Holidaymakers can now enjoy the fruits of this friendship and book a stay in the exquisite little property through Unique Cottages.
