Full description

Unique and brimming with character, The Pier House in Tighnabruaich is one of those properties that only come on the market once in a lifetime. Slightly quirky, but totally charismatic it provides the chance to live the lifestyle that others can only dream of. As its name suggests, the house sits directly above the village pier with the large private balcony offering outstanding, panoramic, views of the Kyles of Bute, a vista shared by virtually every room in the house. Internally, the open plan lounge / dining / kitchen and music area really must be seen to be fully appreciated and the three bedrooms (two with en-suite), study and family bathroom further enhance the property, as does the Scottish Pine flooring, the multi-fuel stove and the garage which can be accessed from the hallway as well as the road outside. The Pier House would make a truly wonderful full time residence, holiday home or holiday-let. Early viewing is recommended.

The picturesque village of Tighnabruaich sits on the Kyles of Bute and is famous for its scenic beauty and sailing waters. The village benefits from small local independent retailers as well as a post office, bank, hotels, cafes and restaurants. The world renowned steamer, PS Waverley, also regularly berths at the pier. The wider area boasts a golf course, tennis court, children’s play area, sailing club and the ever expanding Portavadie Marina.
