Fernhill, in the much sought after Clyde Street in Kirn, is a traditional stone bungalow with attic conversion which has transformed it into a beautiful 3 bedroom family home. In addition to the three bedrooms, one of which is on the upper floor, the house has a sitting room, dining room, kitchen and two bathrooms, one on each floor. The house sits on a large corner plot and the beautiful gardens have been lovingly landscaped and maintained and now boast a large front lawn with seating areas and a plethora of colourful plants, trees and shrubs, a side garden with a summer house and decking at the back in a private suntrap; the driveway and garage further enhance the property. The current owners have undertaken a substantial amount of upgrading in recent times including a new roof in 2018, triple glazing at the front, modern kitchen and bathrooms, new combi-boiler and internal insulation. Fernhill is in walk-in condition and given the private and enclosed gardens and its close proximity to schools, golf and bowling clubs it is sure to appeal to those looking for a lovely family home in a superb location.
The award-winning coastal village of Kirn boasts a golf course, indoor and outdoor bowling club and independent retailers including newsagents, bakers, off-licences and take-aways, amongst others. It is also conveniently placed for two ferries which provide rail and bus links to Greenock, Braehead and Glasgow. In the Dunoon area there are two supermarkets, local shops and hairdressers aplenty, several cafes and restaurants, plenty of pubs, two leisure centres, numerous golf, bowling, tennis and sailing clubs, a two-screen cinema, a local museum and a concert venue. There are also ample schools, churches, medical surgeries, dentists, a hospital and a veterinary practice.
