5 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms

Substantial detached Victorian Villa which has undergone an extensive upgrade and modernisation programme whilst carefully and lovingly retaining the charming period features. Set over three levels, ‘King’s Hut’ is beautifully decorated, expertly fitted with top-of-the range fixtures, very spacious yet extremely comfortable and cosy and comprises 5 bedrooms, four reception rooms, family bathroom and en-suite shower room. The two newly installed log burning stoves are both practical and aesthetically pleasing. Externally, a fully self-contained chalet comprises a generous open-plan living area complete with log burning stove, double bedroom and shower room thus offering versatility to those who work from home, would like a ‘granny flat’ or enjoy friends and family staying over. The extensive gardens to the back are ideal for those with children and / or pets and boast, in addition to the chalet, a summer house looking down to the Firth of Clyde, greenhouse and ample space for children’s outdoor play areas. The front garden has a large sweeping driveway which winds through another well-tended lawn and provides parking for several vehicles. Properties such as this rarely appear on the open market and must be seen to fully appreciate the beauty, splendour and elegance of this magnificent dwelling. Early viewing recommended.

Hunters Quay is a quiet coastal village approximately 2 miles north of Dunoon, Cowal’s capital town, and is home to the excellent Western Ferries terminal with regular ferries to and from Gourock. The area is renowned for its natural beauty with lochs, countryside and snow-capped hills in abundance offering endless walks, climbs and interesting road trips. Dunoon itself 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. 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.

Property Description
Kings Hut
King’s Hut is a charming detached Victorian Villa which has undergone an extensive upgrade and modernisation programme in very recent months and has been transformed into an exceptional family home with the perfect balance of new and period features throughout. The original cornicing, high ceilings, doors and staircase have been lovingly retained whilst the new additions such as modern kitchen, log burning stoves and beautiful décor have undoubtedly added to the luxurious appeal.
On entry the elegance and charm are immediately evident from the welcoming hallway which leads to the sitting room boasting original wooden flooring, an aesthetically pleasing and practical log burning stove and bay windows to the front offering a gorgeous view of the Firth of Clyde and beyond. On the other side of the hall the majestic drawing room is semi-open plan with the formal dining room which, in turn, opens to the sun room overlooking the back garden. The extremely generous dining kitchen is very well appointed with fitted units, oak worktops and plenty of natural light through the windows, Velux windows and door to the back garden.
A beautiful period staircase ascends to the half landing where the deluxe family bathroom, with art-deco royal blue tiles, floor tiles and original cast iron roll top bath, is located before winding to the upper hall where the five bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room, are situated. All of the bedrooms have gorgeous views of either the Clyde to the front or the garden and countryside to the rear.

The chalet is an excellent addition to this, already magnificent, property. Very versatile and, as such, could be used as a ‘granny flat’, teenagers pad, guest accommodation or home office. Generous in size, and fully self-contained, the chalet comprises a large open-plan living / dining / kitchen area, double bedroom with fixed ladder to a mezzanine level, and a contemporary shower room. A log burning stove ensures its always warm and cosy.

Gardens and Parking
King’s Hut boasts fabulous front and back gardens with the back, especially, ideal for the whole family to enjoy. The front garden has a sweeping driveway with parking for several cars and tiered lawned areas with sprinkled rockery adding character. The extensive back garden is on a gentle gradient and is laid mainly to lawn and provides that gorgeous vista of the Firth of Clyde and beyond. The garden is of such a size that it easily accommodates the chalet, a summer house with decking and a large greenhouse as well as ample space for children’s outdoor play equipment and for entertaining family friends whilst enjoying a BBQ.
