Property Details

3 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms

Rarely available shoreside Victorian villa with truly spectacular views! Set over two levels, ‘Holland Cottage’ is situated in large grounds and is extremely versatile with numerous reception rooms and bedrooms. The current layout comprises lounges on both floors, kitchen, two bedrooms on the lower floor with a further bedroom on the upper floor, bathroom, shower room, and entrance porch. There is also an annexe, however this room is currently closed off due to its condition. Although in need of remedial works and modernisation, this represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase a property with huge potential, in the most enviable of settings and it is not expected to be on the market long, so early viewing is highly recommended. Please note, however, that in view of the condition of Holland Cottage, it is expected that it will not form suitable security for loan purposes and should therefore only be cash buyers who express an interest in viewing or purchasing the 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, two pubs, 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.
