Beautifully presented family home with striking forest views from its elevated position on a quiet and peaceful section of Ardenslate Road in Kirn. No. 135 comprises 4 / 5 bedrooms, sitting room, large dining kitchen / family room, 2 bathrooms plus a full en-suite in the master bedroom and utility room. The deceptively spacious ‘upside down’ house is in walk-in condition, with quality fixtures and fittings throughout and has a lovely homely feel to it which is sure to appeal to families looking to upsize or relocate, or to couples simply looking for a beautiful home. The sitting room and dining kitchen have fantastic views from the upper floor; three of the four bedrooms are located on the lower floor offering complete privacy whilst the bedroom on the upper floor is ideal for anyone with mobility issues. Each floor has a family bathroom and the utility room is conveniently located on the lower floor with direct access to the garden. The large private garden at the rear, various seating and decked areas, driveway and garage / workshop further enhance the property which really should be seen to be fully appreciated.
The award-winning coastal village of Kirn boasts recently modernised and upgraded primary and grammar schools, a golf course, indoor and outdoor bowling club and independent retailers including newsagents, bakers, hairdressers, off-licences and take-aways, amongst others. It is also conveniently placed for two ferries which provide rail and bus links to Greenock, Braehead and Glasgow.
In the Dunoon area there are two supermarkets, local shops and hairdressers aplenty, several cafes and restaurants, 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.
