Property Details

6 Bedrooms 6 Bathrooms

Truly outstanding detached Victorian villa with stunning views which is currently being used as a lucrative and highly rated Bed and Breakfast in the picturesque, and much sought after, coastal village of Tighnabruaich. The property, which was built in 1881, has recently been modernised and updated throughout and benefits by having six double bedrooms (5 with en-suite shower rooms), large sea-facing conservatory, sitting room with log-burning stove, study / office, modern dining kitchen, utility / laundry room and family bathroom. Externally, Tregortha boasts large private gardens with a patio looking down to Kyles of Bute, driveway, garage and a fabulous studio with decking, all with the gorgeous sea and country vistas. As a B & B Tregortha offers tremendous business potential but will also appeal to house-hunters looking for a lovely family home set in a truly idyllic location.

Lower Floor – Sitting Room, Conservatory, Dining Kitchen, Utility Room, Office, Two Double Bedrooms (1 En-Suite), Family Bathroom and Reception Hallway
Upper Floor – Four Double Bedrooms (all En-Suite)

Tregortha is situated on the High Road not long after entering Tighnabruaich.

The property is split over two levels with the upper floor consisting of four double bedrooms (all with en-suite shower rooms) which are used as the letting bedrooms. The owners’ accommodation is situated downstairs along with the office and the conservatory which is used as the dining / breakfasting room.

There are three entrances to the property. The main front door, the guest door at the side and via the utility room at the other side. The main entrance is reached by ascending the stairs which bisect the lawned garden to the chipped area at the front of the house. Storm doors open to reveal a vestibule with tiled floor and partially tiled walls. A large glass / wooden door opens to the reception hallway. The side door can be found just off the driveway and provides a more informal entrance, as well as the access area for guests. The utility room at the other side also provides access to the garden.

Tregortha has a large and beautifully landscaped and maintained front garden made up mainly of lawn which slopes to the high road and is bisected by steps which lead from the front gate to the chipped area directly in front of the house. A stone wall at the bottom of the garden divides the lawn from the road. To the side a good sized patio area is situated next to the conservatory and is ideally positioned to get the best of the beautiful vista on offer. The elevated back garden is tiered and has lawn, seating area, drying green, vegetable plots and a studio at the top.

A fantastic addition to the property is the recently constructed timber outhouse which is currently being used as a studio but would make an equally good home office, gym or games room. A decking to the side provides a lovely relaxing area to soak up the beautiful surroundings.

At the side of the house is a driveway for several cars in front of the garage.
