Superb detached Victorian villa with panoramic outlook to Argyll and separate cottage.


Avondale occupies a prime corner site position within the picturesque town of Gourock, which is 5 miles to the east of Greenock. Gourock has a railway station and a regular ferry service to Dunoon from where the hills and lochs of Argyll can be explored. Gourock offers much in the way of leisure facilities and outdoor pursuits including sailing with The Royal Gourock Yacht Club which was founded in 1894. Kip Marina is just 5 miles away and acts as a hub for the internationally renowned sailing opportunities on the Clyde and west coast of Scotland. The M8 provides fast travel times from Greenock to Glasgow Airport, Glasgow city centre and central Scotland.

Gourock also offers a wide range of professional services with additional recreational services including golf courses and an outdoor swimming pool. There is excellent private schooling at St Columba's in Kilmalcolm.


Avondale is a splendid, refurbished Victorian detached villa with beautiful open aspects over the Firth of Clyde and beyond to the Kyles of Bute and the peaks and forests of Argyll.

The accommodation on the ground floor begins with a beautiful reception hallway with ornate cornicing. Off here is the drawing room with feature fireplace and stunning hardwood flooring. The formal dining room has a traditional bay window and next to this is the luxury fitted kitchen with open plan breakfasting room. This creates a wonderfully relaxed space that is perfect for family living and socialising. There is a useful utility room off along with two cloakroom/WCs on this floor.

The first floor accommodation is reached via a fine period staircase and is made up of the master bedroom which has a contemporary en suite bathroom; , three additional double sized bedrooms (one with with an en suite shower room), study and an additional shower room.

The second floor accommodation comprises bedroom 5 and bedroom 6, both of which have doors to the wooden decked roof terrace from where there are breathtaking views across the water. There is an additional bathroom on this floor.

The gardens surrounding Avondale are level and easily maintained, being mostly laid to lawn. To the rear of the boundary there is a detached cottage (again immaculately refurbished) comprising hallway, sitting room, fitted kitchen, bathroom and a double bedroom on the upper level which is reached by a striking spiral staircase.
