Charming detached property with truly stunning views from its shore-side location in the sought-after village of Toward. Set in just under an acre of land, ‘Greengate’ comprises a spacious sitting room with adjoining garden room / study / third bedroom, dining room with log-burning stove which is semi open-plan with the kitchen, utility room and shower room on the ground floor with two full-depth bedrooms and bathroom on the upper floor. Externally, the extensive gardens envelop the house offering numerous places to enjoy the vista, socialise with friends or watch the children and / or pets play in safety. Several outhouses and a garage further add to the appeal. Properties such as Greengate rarely come on the open market therefore will be in great demand so early viewing is highly recommended.
The quiet and peaceful village of Toward has the perfect fusion of country and coastal living and offers stunning views of Cumbrae and Bute with Arran in the distance. The village is located approximately 7 miles along the shore road from Dunoon, Cowal’s capital town, which boasts two supermarkets, local shops and hairdressers aplenty, several cafes, restaurants and take-aways, offering a range to suit all tastes and budgets, plenty of pubs, two leisure centres, numerous golf, bowling, tennis and sailing clubs, a two-screen cinema, a local museum and a concert venue. There are also ample schools, 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 International Airport, Braehead Shopping Centre and Greenock even closer.
