Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Detached ‘upside down’ house with spectacular loch and country views from its elevated position. ‘Tighban’ has been upgraded internally in recent years and comprises spacious open-plan living on the upper floor and three bedrooms and shower room on the lower floor. Externally, a timber balcony stretches from the back to the front of the property and offers a private area to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and vista whilst off-road parking, a good sized cellar and lawned area further add to the appeal. This would be an ideal acquisition for anyone looking for a family or holiday home or for those wishing to purchase a lucrative holiday let.

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 clubs and the ever expanding, and growing in stature, Portavadie Marina.
