Beautiful detached bungalow with uninterrupted sea views in the sought after coastal village of Kilmun. ‘Hopehill’ sits in good sized grounds and benefits by a lovely south-facing garden with a large driveway leading to a courtyard and outhouses at the rear. Internally, the property boasts a spacious country-style kitchen / diner / family room with new Raeburn range cooker, shore-facing sitting room, two double bedrooms, one of which has a dressing room, utility room, modern 4-piece family bathroom and floored attic accessed by a set of stairs off the kitchen. This will undoubtedly appeal to those looking for a lovely home, in a stunning location and, as such, early viewing is highly recommended.
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.
