What the Owners Say :-

So, it is time to move on from our lovely old house. When we came here it needed a lot of love- it is about 165 years old after all. We gave it a new roof, rewired it and slowly made the spaces our own. Much more than this however, it became our home full of love and friendship and creativity. We really hope that it will be so for you too!

What will we miss when we come to move on? The fantastic views out over the Firth of Clyde, busy with ships, porpoises and sea birds. Or sharing the fireside with friends and a nip of something fortifying when the cold comes in. The kids will miss the big garden which provided a thousand small adventures. We will miss the creative spaces that we have appreciated so much; the study in which we made music, the pottery room, the wood carving. All of these things will happen elsewhere, but the old house made so much possible. We really hope it will be so for you too!

Then there is the walk down to the shore, to turn stones and see things scurry. To poke anemones in rock pools and watch as they fold in on themselves. To skim stones out into the old river and smile at the Les-Dawson-esque call of the Eider ducks bobbing and gossiping just off the shore. This house has been very good to us, we really hope it will be for you too!



Property Details :-

The agents are delighted to offer to the market this substantial Victorian Villa which enjoys panoramic views over the Clyde Estuary from the front facing rooms. The property has been upgraded and maintained by the current owners and it is only by viewing that the full size of the accommodation becomes apparent. The entrance vestibule leads into the hall which has parquet flooring, and this flooring also extends into the formal lounge and dining room. The lounge is a bright sunny room with a feature open coal or log burning fireplace, original coving, decorative ceiling rose and original deep skirting boards. At present, the room is carpeted. The bay window provides stunning views towards Gourock and the Rosneath Peninsula and all the apartments to the front of the property make the most of natural sunlight. The separate dining room has almost identical views and original Victorian features. The large dining sized kitchen is accessed from the dining room and has ample space for a dining table and chairs. The gas Rayburn cooker creates a cosiness that gives the impression that this room is the heart of the home. There is parquet flooring and a built in window seat which provides further storage. Again, this room has plenty of natural light. There is a separate utility room for washing machines, tumble dryer and fridge as well as having period wall units for additional storage. There is also a deep under stair storage cupboard and a spacious boiler room/store cupboard. The study is to the rear and overlooks the mature back gardens. It has a built in window seat with storage. Completing the ground floor accommodation is the cloakroom which has shelving, storage and hanging space and leads to the WC. On the upper floor there are five bedrooms; four of them are double rooms and have wash basins installed and three have additional ensuite facilities. The front facing bedrooms have amazing views towards the Clyde Estuary and beyond. Also on this floor is the music room and the family bathroom. There is a separate basement, accessed from outside, which has power and light. It is currently being used as a pottery and is wired for a kiln. The gardens to the front are mainly lawned and as well as the sweeping monobloc driveway to the house there is a path along the side which leads from an area which provides space for extra parking. The rear gardens are mainly lawned with a large gravel patio area, making this space ideal for summer barbeques. The current owners have improved the garden by adding an enclosure for chickens and three vegetable beds. A fruit border also adds to the potential for greater self-sufficiency. There are two outhouses and also a pedestrian access lane at the top of the garden. There is a separate annexe which may be ideal for renting or using as a Granny/Teenage Flat. It can be either self-contained or accessed from the main house. It comprises of a small hallway, lounge, kitchen, one bedroom and a bathroom.
