Waterside Property is extremely proud to present to the market this elegant and substantial Victorian Villa set on the shores of Loch Long. ‘Mossknowe’ is an absolutely gorgeous family home which has been tastefully decorated and is adorned with original features throughout offering charm and character, whilst modern additions such as Biomass central heating, solar panels and multi-fuel stove further add to the appeal. Internally, the spacious and flexible accommodation comprises four reception rooms including a loch-facing conservatory, 4 / 5 bedrooms, study, utility room plus bathroom, shower room and an en-suite shower room. The beautifully landscaped grounds are equally stunning with lawned, seating and patio areas, stone outhouses plus a recently updated stepped pathway to the upper garden where the vista is breathtaking. Sought-after properties such as this rarely come on to the open market and, as such, this is sure to generate a lot of interest, so early viewing is highly recommended.
The picturesque village of Blairmore is set on the shores of Loch Long and boasts a few small independent shops, a lovely café which offers locally sourced produce, homebaking, light meals and speciality coffees and a restored pier at which the world famous paddle steamer ‘PS Waverley’ berths. The wider area is perfect for hill walking, is surrounded by natural beauty and is well served with a marina, sailing, golf and bowling clubs, a post office / mini market, village inn, medical centre, churches and a fantastic, award winning, primary school. A regular bus service ensures that the neighbouring villages of Strone, Kilmun and Ardentinny, as well as Dunoon, are easily accessible. In addition, there are two ferries 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.
