Beautiful detached bungalow with a gorgeous vista of Loch Fyne and the surrounding hills and countryside in the much sought after coastal village of Strachur. Ardsealladh, Scots Gaelic for ‘Advanced Vision’ benefits by an elevated position and comprises three bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room, a bright and airy sitting room with dual aspect views, loch-facing conservatory, dining room which is semi-open plan with the lounge, well-appointed breakfasting kitchen and family bathroom. Externally, the wrap-around gardens have been lovingly maintained and offer various seating areas and the garage is a further added bonus. This will undoubtedly appeal to those looking to relocate to a quiet, peaceful and beautiful part of the world and is not expected to be on the market long so early viewing is highly recommended.
Surrounded by rolling countryside and hills and on the shores of Loch Fyne, Strachur 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. Strachur boasts a well-known Inn offering accommodation, restaurant and lounge bar, a Medical Centre with in-house pharmacy, Post Office with well stocked shop and tea room, retail service station, a vibrant community hall and a primary school with secondary school in Dunoon. The Loch Lomond & Cowal Way is Scotland's most diverse, long distance footpath, available to cyclists, walkers and horse riders. It passes through Strachur and some of the most dramatic scenery in the West Highlands, eventually linking up with the West Highland Way. The property is minutes’ walk from the loch and the Strachur Bay pontoon with moorings and fishing available by arrangement.
