Rarely available, and much sought after, stylish apartment in picturesque Dunoon with panoramic views over the Firth of Clyde. Built in 2010 with energy efficiency in mind, the Tigh Na Cladach (Gaelic for ‘House by the Shore) development comprises 14 properties in striking pastel colours sitting just off the popular Bullwood Road. No. 7 is a beautiful first floor, one bedroom, flat with modern open plan living including a sea-facing lounge and neat and tidy kitchen with a breakfast bar creating a partial divide between the two areas. Accessed via a generous terrace which provides a gorgeous vista from the quiet and private location, the property is extremely bright with many windows, Velux’s, glass doors as well as ‘Juliet’ doors to both the front and rear. Allocated parking to the rear further enhances this property. This will undoubtedly generate a lot of interest so early viewing is highly recommended.
Tigh Na Cladach
The Tigh Na Cladach development was built with energy efficiency in mind and completed in 2010 achieving the PassivHaus accreditation, proudly boasting to be the first social housing scheme in the UK to gain such an accreditation. The architect was the world renowned Professor Gokay Deveci, who specialises in the field of innovative housing design, and the main building contractor was local firm John Brown of Strone. The site was sold to Fyne Initiatives by Argyll and Bute Council on the basis that they would provide housing to meet the needs of the local community, facilitating the provision of affordable, good quality and low-energy designs of one, two and three bedroom family houses to be sold as ‘homestake’ (shared equity). The overall design typology follows the traditional built form of fishing village arrangement where gables are facing the sea in an effort to reduce weather exposure and prevailing winds and the construction is prefabricated super insulated I-beam roof and walls, externally finished with sto-render on blockwork.
