Set in a prime location with stunning sea and hill views sits this detached 4 / 5 bedroom property with private gardens, driveway and integrated garage. On the banks of the Holy Loch in the sought after village of Kilmun, this spacious house has, as well as the four bedrooms and study / 5th bedroom, an enormous sitting room with picture frame window to the front, kitchen, downstairs shower room plus upstairs bathroom, utility room and integrated garage. Further, in very recent years the current owners have added external wall insulation which is both aesthetically pleasing as well as vastly improving the thermal efficiency of the house; new Dimplex Quantum storage heaters have also been installed internally. This would make an ideal family home or an outstanding holiday home and really should be seen to be fully appreciated.
The picturesque village of Kilmun is surrounded by natural beauty, sits on the banks of the Holy Loch and has outstanding views, not only of the loch and the Firth of Clyde, but also the surrounding hills and countryside. The area, which is approximately seven miles from Dunoon and on the edge of Scotland’s First National Park, is well served with a post office / mini market, hotel, pub, golf and bowling clubs, medical centre, churches and a fantastic primary school which has been awarded the Green Flag. The popular, and ever expanding, Holy Loch Marina is just a few minutes drive away at the other side of the loch. There is also a regular bus service to Dunoon making the supermarkets, shops, hairdressers, eateries, pubs, sports and sailing clubs and cinema etc easily accessible. 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.
