Good sized three bedroom semi-detached property just off the shore road in the ever-popular coastal village of Strone. ‘Kildonan’, which has beautiful views of the Holy Loch and surrounding hills from the side windows, has been upgraded and modernised in recent times with new additions such as modern breakfasting kitchen and bathroom and high-spec multi-fuel stove. With a very homely feel to it, small private garden and parking, and in very close proximity to the shore and the village inn this will undoubtedly appeal to those looking for a comfortable family or holiday home or a very lucrative holiday let.
The picturesque village of Strone is surrounded by natural beauty with stunning views of the Holy Loch, Loch Long and the Firth of Clyde down to the Isle of Arran. The area, which is approximately eight miles from Dunoon and on the edge of Scotland’s First National Park, is well served with a post office / mini market, village inn, golf and bowling clubs, medical centre, churches and a fantastic primary school which has been awarded the Green Flag. The popular, and ever expanding, Holy Loch Marina is just a few minutes’ drive away at the other side of the loch. There is also a regular bus service to Dunoon making 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.
