Property Details

4 Bedrooms 6 Bathrooms

Absolutely stunning Victorian Villa set in extensive grounds with gorgeous loch, country and hill views form its secluded location overlooking Holy Loch. Built around 1880, Broxwood Park is a fine example of a period property with lovingly retained original features, generous rooms and an unparalleled grandeur. Set over three levels, the versatile villa comprises several reception rooms, numerous bedrooms, most of which have en-suite shower rooms and a fully self-contained apartment on the first floor. Externally, widespread and beautifully manicured gardens envelop the house with a woodland at the rear ensuring years’ worth of supply of logs should the new owners wish to install log burning stoves. Properties such as this very rarely appear on the open market and it is expected to generate a lot of interest so early viewing is very much advised to fully appreciate the all-round splendour of this magnificent property.

Sandbank is approximately three miles from Dunoon, Cowal’s capital town. The village, which sits on the banks of the Holy Loch, boasts a marina, sailing club, village shop / post office, primary school, bowling club and a children’s play area with basketball / 5-a-side football pitch. The famous Benmore Botanic Garden and Loch Eck are just a couple of miles further north. In the Dunoon area there are two supermarkets, local shops and hairdressers aplenty, several cafes and restaurants, offering a range to suit all tastes and budgets, plenty of pubs, two leisure centres, numerous golf, bowling and tennis clubs, a two-screen cinema, a local museum and a concert venue. There are also ample churches, medical surgeries, dentists, a hospital and a veterinary practice. 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.

The extensive gardens to Broxwood Park are simply magnificent. Offering gorgeous views, the grounds are beautifully landscaped and maintained and totally enclosed due to the privacy hedging and fencing to the front and sides. With lawned areas both front and back, numerous seating areas, outhouses and a plethora of colourful trees, plants and shrubs, there really is something for everyone. A further, and unexpected, bonus is the woodland at the rear which is for the sole use of this property. Many of the trees have already been cut down and would provide fuel for any log-burning stoves that are installed.

Planning Permission
It is believed that in the 1990’s planning permission was granted for a dwelling house to be built in the front corner of the garden. This permission will now have lapsed but is worth reconsidering should the new owner desire.
