Deceptively spacious four bedroom Victorian property in sought after Kirn Brae. The mid-terrace house, which has a lovely sea view from the south-facing front rooms, comprises good sized sitting room, country-style dining kitchen with solid wood worktops and Belfast sink, family bathroom and the four bedrooms, three of which are on the upper floor. Externally, the front garden has views down the Firth of Clyde and the back boasts a small courtyard as well as a fully enclosed low maintenance garden with decking large enough for a table and chairs, a chipped stone section as well as an area with artificial grass. Further benefits to the house include the many original features such as high ceilings, bay windows, deep skirting boards and ornate cornicing and the property is double glazed, has gas central heating and is fully compliant for rental purposes. Close to both primary and grammar schools and a very short stroll to Kirn Gardens and the local amenities, this would make an ideal family home.
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 and take-aways, amongst others.

The grammar school and a newly modernised and upgraded primary school are also located in the village.

The property benefits by having front, side and back gardens, all of which are low maintenance. The front garden looks down the Firth of Clyde and has privacy hedging at the side and front, is laid to bark and has a mixture of plants and flowers adding colour and character. At the side, directly off the kitchen door is a small courtyard which is good for storage and / or a patio set. The back garden is fully enclosed and comprises an astroturf area, a decking which easily fits a table and chairs and a chipped stone section which is perfect for a chimnea and garden bench.
Please note that the photographs of the back garden are historic. Recent changes include astroturf instead of lawn and the decking, fencing and shed have all now been painted black.
