Externally, the property benefits by lovingly maintained, and extensive, landscaped gardens, garage / workshop, timber shed and several seating areas all of which enjoy the gorgeous surroundings. This will undoubtedly appeal to young families, retirees or anyone looking for a fabulous holiday home and is not expected to be on the market for long 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 six miles from Dunoon and on the edge of Scotland’s First National Park, is well served with a post office / mini market, hotel, pub, golf and bowling clubs, medical centre, churches and a fantastic primary school which has been awarded the Green Flag. Other places of interest and / or leisure include the arboretum with its many species of trees and wildlife and several recognised walks of varying degree of ease and the Argyll Mausoleum set in the grounds of Kilmun Church. The popular, and ever expanding, Holy Loch Marina is just a few minutes’ drive away at the other side of the loch although many boat-owners also have a mooring in the loch for using during the summer months. A regular bus service to Dunoon makes the supermarkets, shops, hairdressers, eateries, pubs, sports and sailing clubs and cinema etc 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.
