Truly stunning farmhouse conversion with breathtaking sea and country views. Built around 1850, ‘The Old Dairy’ is beautifully decorated and in absolute walk-in condition having been totally transformed and updated in the last few years whilst retaining the original charm and beauty of an older building. Internally the property boasts a recently built conservatory with a striking vista, a large country-style dining kitchen with French Doors to the rear, an elegant sitting room, an upstairs lounge area, three / four bedrooms (two of which have en-suite shower rooms) and family bathroom. Externally, a private area at the rear leads to the well-maintained common courtyard whilst the front garden is both aesthetically pleasing and practical having been lovingly and thoughtfully designed, to include plenty of seating areas, grow vegetables or just enjoy the surroundings. The garden, which is fully enclosed also has space for a couple of cars to park in the driveway. This will undoubtedly appeal to families as well as those looking for a relaxing holiday or forever home and should be seen to be fully appreciated.
Dalinlongart is a small rural Hamlet close to Sandbank which is approximately three miles from Dunoon, Cowal’s capital town. The village, which sits on the banks of the Holy Loch, boasts a marina, sailing club, village shop / post office, two pubs, primary school, bowling club and a children’s play area with basketball / 5-a-side football pitch. The famous Benmore Botanic Garden and Loch Eck are just a couple of miles further north. As well as everything that goes with a large seaside town, Dunoon also 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.
