The Glencoe and Nevis Range ski areas are both within approximately an hour and a half’s drive, while for water sports enthusiasts the Firth of Clyde provides some of Scotland’s most testing sailing waters. The neighbouring village of Rhu offers a modern marina and is home to the world famous Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club.

Description

Invergair is a fine Victorian villa with flexible family accommodation over three levels. It was built in 1888 in blonde sandstone under a slate roof. Today, its well presented accommodation is well laid out for modern family living and whilst it retains some wonderful period features such as Victorian fireplaces and detailed cornicing, its bathrooms and kitchen are more modern.

Double storm doors lead to a vestibule with mosaic floor leading to the reception hallway.

The reception hallway has beautiful cornicing, corbels and a stripped wooden floor. It leads to the sitting room, drawing room, dining room, kitchen and cloakroom.

The drawing room has a bay window, detailed cornice and a gas flame effect fire set into a substantial Belgian black stone fireplace.

The dining room has cornicing, a picture rail and a shelved press. It also has a gas flame effect fire set into a wooden fireplace.

The sitting room has cornicing, a picture rail and a wooden fireplace. A door leads directly to the kitchen.

The kitchen is well fitted with units at wall mounted and counter levels. It has a combination of granite and butchers block type worktops. It has a black gas fired Aga. A door opens to a well appointed utility room with co-ordinating units and plumbing for a washing machine. A further door leads directly to the rear garden.

The kitchen is semi open plan with a playroom or family room with vaulted ceiling and double doors into a breakfast room and conservatory. A large cloakroom with stained glass window and a separate, panelled wc completes the accommodation on the ground floor.

A staircase with a beautiful Arts and Crafts style stained glass window leads to a half landing with a family bathroom in a French theme. It has panelling to half height, freestanding bath, wc and wash hand basin.

Off the main upper landing are four bedrooms and a shower room. The master bedroom has detailed cornicing, a picture rail and a substantial white Carrera marble fireplace. It has an en suite shower room which was refitted in 2012 with a contemporary suite.

On the second floor are a large playroom, a further bedroom, a wc and a box room, presently used as a small study.

The gardens of Invergair are most substantial. To the front, some magnificent mature trees provide privacy and protection whilst species rhododendrons provide seasonal colour. It has a large level lawn. To the rear the lawn is even more substantial.
