Rarely available 5 bed detached property with stunning loch and country views from its elevated position off the shore road in the coastal village of Kilmun. Set over four floors but with only a few stairs inbetween each floor, ‘Kasalito’ has much to boast about, not least the full-width balcony that opens up from the spacious open-plan sitting / dining room as well as the breakfasting kitchen offering a peaceful area to take in the beautiful surroundings whilst dining al-fresco, or enjoy a morning coffee. Given the south-facing position of the property, the balcony will be bathed in sunshine from sunrise until sunset, making it an even more enjoyable experience. Internally the house also benefits by an en-suite shower room, bathroom and a further shower room, utility room, study / reading hallway and the floored attic room which would be a fabulous study, games or guest room. Externally, a driveway leads to a well-equipped garage / workshop, a decking to the side and several seating areas offer resting areas and the extended grounds at the rear could be transformed into a lovely landscaped addition to the gardens. A lovely family home, located in a much sought-after area and with truly exceptional views, Kasalito 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 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.
