Traditional upper villa with truly beautiful sea views from its shore-side location in the sought after village of Strone. ‘White Rock Villa’ boasts many original features and benefits by having four bedrooms, sitting room with dual aspect, dining kitchen with adjoining utility room, wet room and cloakroom and, externally, private gardens and outhouse with shared drying green and wash house. Further, the roof to the villa has been totally replaced within the last two years. This would make an ideal family, retirement or holiday home given its stunning location and close proximity to local amenities.
The picturesque village of Strone is surrounded by natural beauty with stunning views of the Holy Loch, Loch Long and the Firth of Clyde down to the Isle of Arran. The area, which is approximately eight miles from Dunoon and on the edge of Scotland’s First National Park, is well served with a post office / mini market, village pub, 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.
There is also a regular bus service to Dunoon making 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.
