Thistle House commands, arguably the finest and most spectacular vista towards the middle and upper reaches of the Clyde estuary.

This impressive and sophisticated detached residence, built in 2006, provides generous and versatile family accommodation extending to around 2,900 sq ft (with an additional 1,000 sq ft of basement) and dominates a prime position within this small and intimate hamlet, located on the northern shore of the River Clyde.

Set amidst extensive, landscaped and beautifully maintained garden grounds which feature an arched bridge, Thistle House is a landmark property within this picturesque hamlet and enjoys an extraordinary history.

Located on the site of a first world war gun battery (which enjoyed the most strategic position in defending the upper reaches of the river Clyde), the house is built to an exceptionally high standard with the specification including: high performance double glazed windows and doors, sophisticated sound system over both floors, quality sanitary ware, quality kitchen with integrated appliances and granite worktop surfaces, low voltage down-lighting, bespoke staircase, oil fired central heating system, Karndean flooring and fully integrated vacuum system.

Distinguished by its exceptionally low heating / running costs (evidenced by the energy performance certificate), the property comprises: entrance vestibule, reception hall with built-in cupboards, generous lounge with French doors to an outstanding 21' sun/day room, dining room, downstairs double bedroom with a tiled wet / shower room adjacent, large, well equipped breakfasting kitchen, utility room and cloakroom/wc completes the ground floor. The upper floor offers a 21' master bedroom, guest bedroom with quality fitted ensuite shower room, two further double bedrooms ( one used as a study) and family bathroom with jacuzzi bath and integrated flat screen television. A major feature of the property is the 32' x 30' basement room (with a 10' high ceiling), and two large store rooms - which offer the prospect for development into a self contained office suite or dedicated gymnasium.

The hamlet of Portkil lies around 1 mile (by military road) from the village of Kilcreggan.

The picturesque village of Kilcreggan, lying on the northern shore of the river Clyde, offers an excellent quality of life and is well served by a regular bus service, ferry passenger service to Gourock (within onward train connection to Glasgow), post office, general store, local inn, coffee shop, hotel, health centre, parish church, reputable primary school and delightful walks within the surrounding countryside.

Cove Sailing Club is to be found less than two miles to the west of Kilcreggan. The boat - yards at the neighbouring village of Rosneath are some 3 miles away and provide excellent facilities and slipways.
