Substantial four bed detached property on the banks of the Holy Loch in the lovely south-facing village of Kilmun. ‘The Ferry House’ is in absolute walk-in condition having recently been upgraded, modernised and redecorated without any compromise on the grace and charm that is evident as soon as you walk through the front door. Internally the home comprises large sitting room, dining kitchen, formal dining room, study, TV lounge, downstairs cloakroom, separate upstairs bathroom and shower rooms in addition to the four double bedrooms, the master of which has a stunning en-suite shower room. Externally, the spacious grounds envelop the property with the large back garden having been lovingly landscaped and offering several seating and barbecue areas, a large decking, pond, vegetable plot, greenhouse and a superb timber workshop. The front garden has a relaxing lawned section with a plethora of plants, trees and shrubs adding colour and character to enjoy whilst soaking up the truly stunning setting. A good sized driveway sweeps from the front to the back and provides space for numerous vehicles to park and turn. Properties such as this rarely come on the open market and it is sure to generate a vast amount of interest so early viewing is highly recommended.
The picturesque village of Kilmun is surrounded by natural beauty, sits on the banks of the Holy Loch and has outstanding views, not only of the loch and the Firth of Clyde, but also the surrounding hills and countryside. The area, which is approximately seven 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. A regular bus service to Dunoon ensures the supermarkets, shops, hairdressers, eateries, pubs, sports and sailing clubs and cinema etc are all 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.
