Fantastic opportunity to transform this loch-side Victorian Villa back to its former glory. Glencreran is currently made up of lower and upper flats and, as such, offers the new owners to either retain the current layout or reinstate the staircase, modernise and upgrade internally and have a truly outstanding property in a superb location. Set in a good sized plot comprising front and rear gardens, double garage / workshop, large driveway and an area that previously had planning permission for a dwelling (now lapsed) this villa offers massive potential to own a beautiful family home, holiday home and / or let or to make a very astute investment.
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 six 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. Other places of interest and / or leisure include the arboretum with its many species of trees and wildlife and several recognised walks of varying degree of ease and the Argyll Mausoleum set in the grounds of Kilmun Church.
The popular, and ever expanding, Holy Loch Marina is just a few minutes’ drive away at the other side of the loch although many boat-owners also have a mooring in the loch for using during the summer months. A regular bus service to Dunoon makes 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.
