Property Description

Full description

Rockwood is a superb four/five bedroom detached property sitting in approx. 0.4 of an acre with stunning views over Campbeltown Loch and beyond to the Isle of Arran.

The Kintyre Peninsula is swept by the warm Gulf Stream and studded with quiet inns and hamlets. To the west, the coast is rugged with some glorious beaches and crashing surf from the blue Atlantic Ocean. The east coast boasts stunning sandy beaches overlooking Arran.

Campbeltown is a historic Royal Burgh at the southeast end of the peninsula. It is built around a natural harbour and is well serviced with shopping facilities (including 2 supermarkets), as well as two primary schools, well-established Grammar School, cinema, leisure centre, hotels, restaurants and a hospital. In recent times, it has seen significant investment from the Machrihanish Dunes, including the on-going renovation of two of the areas hotels to 4/5 star standard.

For golf enthusiasts, Kintyre has the newly designed Machrihanish Dunes course and the famous Machrihanish championship golf course, with arguably the worlds best opening hole and both are top 100 courses. There are also the picturesque Dunaverty, Carradale and Tarbert courses nearby.

Only a short drive away is Campbeltown Airport with two flights a day to Glasgow International Airport.

Rockwood is a Victorian detached family home situated on Kilkerran Road in Campbeltown, within easy walking distance to the town centre. The house enjoys uninterrupted views across the Loch and sits in approx 0.4 of an acre of garden grounds. Built circa 1895, it is thought to be designed by H.E. Clifford and is category B listed. Rockwood is an excellent family home recently modernised to an exceptional standard. The accommodation has been designed to take full advantage of the incredible views across the Loch and yet provides all that is necessary for modern family life.

The accommodation on the first floor consists of a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and dressing room, 3 further double bedrooms, family bathroom with shower and ample storage. Downstairs the practical family accommodation consists of a large Chalon kitchen/breakfast room with four oven AGA, central island and granite work tops, shower room, family sitting room with wood burning stove, drawing room with bay window, working fire place and views over the Loch and a dining room, again with working fire place and rich timber surrounds. The attic has the potential to offer a large L-Shaped sitting room, a fifth potential bedroom and further bathroom.

Externally the property benefits from a private driveway with ample off street parking, a cultivated and relatively sheltered garden with several out-houses that with a bit of imagination could be converted to a potting shed or an artist studio.
