Property Description

Full description

Sedna is a pretty detached house which was originally built in 2003 and in the same current ownership from 2004. The house is well conceived and located on a slightly elevated site from where main rooms take advantage of the ever changing sea and landscape views west across the lower reaches of Loch Fyne to Tarbert.

The house is well finished with quality tiles, ceramics and good quality kitchen and bathroom furniture. High levels of insulation make the house highly efficient and being comparatively young, the house is light and bright and easily run requiring low levels of maintenance.

Accommodation is laid out over two levels and lends itself well towards either a fine principal home, second or holiday home or indeed a useful income producing investment property from the self-catering holiday letting sector.

An outer entrance vestibule leads to the reception hallway via bevel glass door, skirtings, facings and doors all completed in dressed hardwoods, useful under stairs stores, comfortable sitting room with corner sited multi-fuel burner, formal dining room overlooking rear gardens, cloakroom/wc, large dining/breakfast room kitchen with matching base and wall units and slate tiled floor, utility room with matching slate tiled floor and side door to driveway and gardens, boiler room with oil fired boiler and pressurised hot tank system.

Sedna is situated in an area of great natural scenic beauty overlooking sheltered Portavadie bay at the southern end of Loch Fyne close to the now popular sailing and driving destination of Portavadie Marina and health Spa.

The house enjoys a slightly elevated position from which it enjoys beautiful and often dramatic seascape views across the Loch Fyne to Tarbert and the hills of Kintyre & Knapdale.

Portavadie Marina is on the doorstep and has in recent years seen significant investment in creating a modern state of the art Marina infrastructure with associated chandlery and restaurant facilities and the recently opened health spa with its fitness and conditioning suites as well as indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs. The marina is fast gaining a reputation among the sailing communities as a must-go to destination and many drive to the marina for culinary days and evenings out.

Tarbert is 4.8 miles to the west and there is a ferry service from Portavadie direct to Tarbert.

Tighnabruaich is 3 miles to the east and is a well-known sheltered anchorage with moorings that are always lively with the comings and goings of boating and yachting craft. The village centre offers local amenities that cater for everyday needs and requirements. A bus service runs from Tighnabruaich to both Rothesay and Dunoon.

The city of Glasgow is 59 miles distant (albeit interrupted by a not unpleasant boat crossing to Gourock) and has numerous retail districts and all the higher educational, cultural and leisure services normally associated with a major international centre.

Tighnabruaich has a reputable and award winning primary school and secondary is available at Dunoon Grammar.

The area is famous for its dramatic natural scenic beauty; yachtsmen and women the world over sail through the scenic Kyles from the Clyde marinas and on up through Loch Fyne to Ardrishaig through the Crinan canal and out to the Hebridean islands.

The area offers much in the way of relaxing outdoor pursuits. Tighnabruaich Golf Club is a scenic and challenging 9-hole golf course. There is tennis and inevitably, a famous sailing school.

Sea, river and loch fishing are also available in the area, as are a number of commercially run shoots. Some of the local estates allow stalking by arrangement.

Tighnabruaich lies on "Argyll's Secret Coast", which stretches from Strachur at the top of Loch Fyne round the coast to Colintraive. It is an area of stunning natural beauty where there are countless opportunities to discover peaceful locations. Nearby activities include walks in forests or along the coast, fishing kayaking or sailing and enjoying the wildlife.

From Glasgow city centre, leave in a westerly direction on the M8 motorway. Continue for 21 miles to arrive at Port Glasgow. Follow signs Greenock and Gourock on the A770 for 8 miles to reach the Western Ferry terminal at McInroys Point. Take the ferry to Hunters Quay Dunoon. Leave the terminal and turn right on the A815 through Sandbank. After 3.5 miles turn left on to the B836. Travel for 11 miles before turning right on to the A886. Travel for 1.5 miles then turn left onto the B8003. Travel for 7 miles to reach Tighnabruaich. Proceed south through Tighnabruaich through Kames and continue in a westerly direction on the B8000. After a further 1.3 miles to reach Millhouse proceed straight across the kink in the road following signs Poratavdie on the unmarked single track road. Proceed for a further 1.9 miles continuing straight on to the small hamlet of houses to find Sedna on the right hand side. To assist, do not turn right at the end of the journey for the car ferry and marina."
