***** CLOSING DATE - FRIDAY 25TH NOVEMBER 2016 at 12 NOON *****

Miller Stewart are excited to present to the market Nursery Cottage, an idyllic two bedroom home that borders the famous Puck's Glen which runs parallel to the stunning Loch Eck close to the popular town of Dunoon. The cottage benefits from its much sought after tranquil location along with its private drive, ample parking and more than generous garden plot. The property comprises kitchen, living room, bathroom and two double bedrooms. With easy road and ferry links Glasgow is just an hour and half's commute making this a superb opportunity to escape the city rush to live in your own beautifully alluring woodland retreat. With Dunoon town centre only 7 miles away those working locally would also be pushed to find such an accessible but enchanting home at such a great price. Although in need of upgrading the cottage has the delightful feature of an AGA multi stove burner which fuels the central heating and helps in reducing energy bills.


Surrounded by mountains and forest the local area offers endless opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts with sailing available at the nearby Holy Loch Marina and hill climbing, water sports and mountain biking all being much loved local pursuits.

Sandbank village lies 5 miles away and offers conveniences such as a shop with post office, butchers, petrol station, numerous eating establishments and primary school. The town of Dunoon located 7 miles to the west offers further amenities including two supermarkets, cinema, secondary school, bowling greens, hospital and a delightful mix of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Western Ferries run a regular vehicle and passenger ferry from Hunter's Quay (6 miles away) to Gourock giving road access to Glasgow and onwards. A solely passenger ferry also runs regularly from Dunoon pier (7 miles away) to Gourock with rail links to Glasgow and beyond to the rest of the UK. Glasgow Airport can be reached in just over an hour.

Nursery Cottage

Heading north on the A815 along Loch Eck side you turn right onto a road from which there is a gateway to the property. From here the drive runs up through the garden towards the back of the house. The back door to the property lies next to the drive and parking area.

The back door opens into a vestibule area which offers access to the kitchen and the bathroom and has a hatch to the loft. The area also houses a huge walk in cupboard with shelving and even a window which would offer ample space for all household essentials, coats, jackets and more.

Kitchen - (3.20m x 2.18m approx – AWP)

The fresh, white kitchen has a large window to the rear of the property which sits over the stainless steel sink and offers a splendid forest scene to enjoy as dishes are washed. There are floor standing and wall mounted cupboards, an integrated oven, electric hobs, worktops and space for a fridge/freezer and washing machine. Doors from the kitchen lead to the living room, the back vestibule and the second bedroom.

Bathroom - (1.90m x 1.65m approx - AWP)

The bathroom comprises a bath with over bath shower, wash hand basin and toilet. The walls around the bath/shower area are tiled and a window ensures the room remains light. There is also a wall mounted radiator.

Lounge - (3.85m x 3.78m approx. - AWP)

The charming lounge has an AGA solid fuel stove which not only provides a hearty, glowing warmth to the room but also fuels the central heating for the rest of the house. A built in cupboard houses the hot water tank and below this are a further two built in cupboards which offer useful storage space. Dual aspect windows flood the room with light and offer delightful woodland views to the front and side of the property. The room is carpeted with a stone hearth for the stove. There is a radiator and doors to the front vestibule area and the kitchen.

Front Vestibule

This space is accessed from the quaint front door of the property which is a characterful arched shape with glass panels and a bolt lock. The vestibule has a radiator and from here there is direct access to the living room and the main bedroom.

Bedroom 1 - (3.85m x 3.78m approx - AWP)

The main bedroom has dual aspect windows to the front and side of the cottage which again keep the room feeling bright and fresh as well as offering idyllic views that provide a calming atmosphere to relax in. This double size bedroom is carpeted and has a wall mounted radiator.

Bedroom 2 - (3.62m x 2.73m approx - AWP)

This double size bedroom has a wall mounted radiator and is carpeted. Like the rest of the windows in the cottage the window in this room is large and has lovely wooden surrounds which bring an extra warm tone to the room.


To the front of the property there is a path that runs from the front door to a gate which opens onto the forestry track leading to Puck's Glen. To the side of the path there is grass and there are an assortment of bushes, trees and shrubs. A wooden awning over the quaint front door gives the cottage a picturesque, chocolate box look.

From the front of the cottage the garden runs down either side of the house to the back of the property.

The back garden houses the driveway with ample parking space which is flanked by grass and an array of bordering shrubs and bushes.

This scenic cottage can become a charming home for a couple or small family and subject to planning there would be plenty of room to expand the property. The idyllic location and fantastic affordability mean early viewing of this property is highly recommended.
