Truly stunning detached Victorian Villa with gorgeous panoramic loch views from its enviable location on the banks of Loch Long. Beautifully decorated and in absolute walk-in condition ‘Silverdale’ is brimming with charm and character and comprises loch facing sitting and dining rooms, a modern kitchen with adjoining bright and airy sun room and utility room, 5 double bedrooms, one of which is on the lower floor, bathroom, shower room and downstairs cloakroom.
Externally, the wraparound gardens have been lovingly landscaped and maintained, whilst the large driveway, carport, garage, workshop, further garden shed and woodland area to the rear all add to this, already charming, property. This is a truly magnificent house in an idyllic setting and would make an outstanding family or retirement home and 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.
