Property Description

Full description


Feorlinbreck is a delightful 1930's detached chalet bungalow that sits amidst lovely gardens of approximately an acre in size.

The property is being sold with planning permission for the erection of a further single storey detached residence in the lower area of the garden. The owners have erected a fence dividing the building plot with the existing gardens that surround the house. Currently the title includes the whole site (house and building plot), however, the vendors will consider dividing the title and therefore selling the house and its immediate gardens as one lot and the building plot as a separate lot. Should this be the case, separate price negotiations to reflect this would take place.

The property enjoys a lovely quiet setting, in a virtually traffic free part of Garelochhead, yet within easy reach of the centre of the village which offers a good range of local amenities including convenient shop and a local community centre which houses a gym, climbing wall and cafe. Garelochhead is located in a stunning setting close to Helensburgh which is only 8 miles away and provides a wider selection of amenities including train stations which offer regular and direct services to Glasgow and Edinburgh. Garelochhead also has a train station which is on the West Highland Line with links to the northwest of Scotland, Glasgow and a sleeper service to London.

The house itself is impeccably presented both inside and out and it offers flexible and versatile accommodation over its two floors. On entering from the front, the vestibule opens into a reception hall which gives access to a bay windowed lounge at the front enjoying lovely aspects, a bay windowed double bedroom also to the front, and to the rear, there is a further double bedroom with built-in wardrobes on this floor, a bathroom and a good sized dining kitchen that features a Rayburn stove, fridge/ freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and a walk-in pantry.

Moving onto the upstairs accommodation, the generously proportioned master bedroom features a dormer window overlooking the gardens and access to substantial eaves space that provides excellent storage. The bedroom also benefits from its own ensuite shower room with shower cubicle, wc, bidet and wash hand basin. There is a further small bedroom with access to further eaves storage on this floor. The house is warmed by a system of gas fired central heating and is fully double glazed throughout.

On entering the gardens from the rear, the driveway provides parking for a couple of cars and access to a timber built double garage. There is a further driveway on the other side of the house providing more parking and the house is surrounded by extensive lawns and pathways with a patio to the front overlooking the plot. To one side of the house, a stream runs through the gardens and there are trees and bushes on the periphery providing privacy and screening.

As mentioned, planning permission has been granted for the erection of a single storey property. The planning reference number is 15/00646/PPP and a copy of the decision notice can be viewed on the Argyll and Bute Council website. Alternatively, a copy is also available at the office of Clyde Property in Helensburgh.

Services – Please note that the site is connected to mains gas, water and drainage. EPC - Band E
