Elegant detached villa with panoramic views over the Firth of Clyde and to the hills beyond. Brimming with character, ‘Briarbank’ commands a stunning position on sought after Wyndham Road in the coastal village of Innellan and comprises front-facing lounge, dining room and conservatory, dining kitchen, 4 / 5 bedrooms, large utility room and two bathrooms, one on each floor. Externally, the interesting and colourful gardens envelop the house and offer several areas to enjoy the vista or simply while away the day and a large workshop, summer house and garage and coal shed further enhance the property. Although in need of a degree of internal modernisation this would make an ideal family home and should be seen to be appreciated.
The village of Innellan is approximately 5 miles from Dunoon and boasts a local shop / post office, 2 pub / restaurants, many sports clubs including golf, tennis and bowling, an excellent primary school, church and village hall. Dunoon, Cowal’s capital town, has two supermarkets, local and independent shops, hairdressers, eateries, pubs, sports and sailing clubs, a museum and cinema amongst its attractions. In addition, there are two ferry links to Gourock with rail and coach links meaning that Glasgow city centre is little more than an hour away, with Glasgow Airport, Braehead Shopping Centre and Greenock even closer.
