Lovely two bed family home in extensive and beautifully landscaped gardens. With a charming and homely feel to it, the south-facing property is set over one level and boasts a gorgeous loch and country vista from the top of the quiet street which is only a short stroll to the shore as well as to the local amenities, including children’s play park.
Internally, the house comprises a family dining kitchen which opens to the large terrace, a comfortable lounge, two bedrooms and contemporary bathroom; double glazing and gas central heating further enhance the appeal. Externally, the front garden is simply sumptuous! Very generous in size and laid mainly to lawn but with plenty of trees, plants and shrubs offering colour and character, a private decking area to the side and an elevated terrace which proudly overlooks the garden, which is fully enclosed and, as such, ideal for children and / or pets to play in complete safety. The driveway adjacent to the garden is a real bonus providing off-road parking for a very minimum of two vehicles. This is a beautiful home with a lovely feel to it and will undoubtedly appeal to young families, retirees or anyone looking for a perfect holiday home in a beautiful setting. Early viewing is highly recommended.
Sandbank is approximately three miles from Dunoon, Cowal’s capital town. The village, which sits on the banks of the Holy Loch, boasts a marina, sailing club, village shop / post office, two pubs, primary school, bowling club and a children’s play area with basketball / 5-a-side football pitch. The famous Benmore Botanic Garden and Loch Eck are just a couple of miles further north. In the Dunoon area there are two supermarkets, local shops and hairdressers aplenty, several cafes and restaurants, offering a range to suit all tastes and budgets, plenty of pubs, two leisure centres, numerous golf, bowling and tennis clubs, a two-screen cinema, a local museum and a concert venue. There are also ample churches, medical surgeries, dentists, a hospital and a veterinary practice. In addition, there are two ferry links to Gourock with rail and coach links meaning that Glasgow city centre is little more than an hour away, with Glasgow Airport, Braehead Shopping Centre and Greenock even closer.
