Beautifully decorated detached bungalow in quiet cul-de-sac in the coastal village of Kirn, just outside Dunoon. 4 The Avenue has, in recent times, been updated and modernised with new gas central heating, cavity wall insulation and a complete overhaul internally. The property comprises large bright sitting room, dining kitchen, two double bedrooms and family bathroom and, externally, wrap-around gardens with several patio areas and a driveway for 3 cars plus an adjoining building plot which could either be built on or used as an extensive garden for the bungalow. This would make an ideal family or retirement home with the added bonus of being a potentially lucrative investment should the new owner choose to build on the plot.
The award-winning coastal village of Kirn is approximately one mile along the esplanade from Dunoon, Cowal’s capital town. The village boasts a golf course, indoor and outdoor bowling club and independent retailers including newsagents, bakers, hairdressers, 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.

Once through the front door you enter the small vestibule which, in turn leads to the hallway through a glass panelled door. The welcoming hallway sets the tone for the rest of the house with fresh décor and new carpet. Leads to the sitting room, both bedrooms and the family bathroom. Large walk-in cupboard which houses the boiler, ceiling light and radiator.

Gardens and Driveway
The enclosed gardens envelop the house and consist of several seating areas set in white chipped stone, BBQ hardstanding and a section at the side for refuse bins. At the back is a driveway for 3 vehicles and a timber shed.
Previously, the plot had outline planning permission for a dwelling house with vehicular access and although this has now lapsed there is little doubt it would be granted should the new owner wish to reapply. Alternatively, the new owner may wish to use the plot as a large garden, which would be ideal for children and / or pets.
