Truly stunning semi-detached property in the lovely rural hamlet of Glenbranter, near Strachur. The timber-framed house has undergone a substantial yet sympathetic modernisation and upgrade project in the last year with no expense spared in the quality of workmanship, fixtures and fittings and is presented to the market in absolute walk-in condition. With spectacular and ever-changing views from every angle, the house is mainly open-plan on the ground floor with a lounge looking out to the countryside through the large patio doors and a log burning stove in the corner, a dining area semi-dividing the lounge from the breakfasting kitchen and a cosy TV / music area; also on the ground floor is an updated shower room which has plumbing and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The upper floor has two generous double bedrooms, both of which have a beautiful vista to waken up to every morning whilst the master also has a WC, wash-hand basin and bath under the window looking to the fields and trees. Externally, the gardens have a large decking at the back, several outhouses, plenty of lawned and seating areas and a plethora of trees, plants and shrubs adding further colour and character. 6 Swedish Houses has been lovingly transformed to an exceptional standard and will be extremely appealing to those looking for a beautiful family home, an idyllic retreat or a lucrative holiday let and should be seen to be fully appreciated, both inside and out. Early viewing highly recommended.
Glenbranter is a hamlet close to the village of Strachur and Loch Fyne and a short drive away from the larger town of Dunoon. Surrounded by rolling countryside and hills and with a vast array of beautiful walks on your doorstep, Glenbranter is situated perfectly for commuting to Dunoon, the Royal Burgh of Inveraray, or Loch Lomond, but is still only little more than an hour's drive away from Glasgow. In the area there are local pubs, tea rooms, post office, a petrol station with well stocked shop, doctors, schools and playparks thus making it the perfect location for escaping from the hustle and bustle of city life, but with everything you want close by. The village itself was built for workers who came to work the forests of Cowal after the entertainer Harry Lauder leased the ground to the Forestry Commission back in the 1920s.
