Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Located in the sought-after coastal village of Kilmun, Hollytrees Cottages comprises two detached stone bungalows both of which are set in substantial grounds with breathtaking views. The stunning main property, Woodend Cottage, was originally constructed around 1880 and comprises a spacious sitting room with open fire, superb family dining kitchen, three double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom. The smaller house, Holly Cottage, has open plan living with cosy log-burning stove plus two bedrooms and a shower room and would make an ideal ‘granny flat’ or a very lucrative holiday let. Both cottages have a lovely homely country feel to them and would be absolutely perfect for those with large families or for anyone looking for a complete lifestyle change by living in one of the houses and using the other as a business venture. Early viewing is highly recommended.

The picturesque village of Kilmun is surrounded by natural beauty, sits on the banks of the Holy Loch and has outstanding views, not only of the loch and the Firth of Clyde, but also the surrounding hills and countryside. The area, which is approximately six miles from Dunoon and on the edge of Scotland’s First National Park, is well served with a post office / mini market, hotel, pub, golf and bowling clubs, medical centre, churches and a fantastic primary school which has been awarded the Green Flag. Other places of interest and / or leisure include the arboretum with its many species of trees and wildlife and several recognised walks of varying degree of ease and the Argyll Mausoleum set in the grounds of Kilmun Church.
The popular, and ever expanding, Holy Loch Marina is just a few minutes’ drive away at the other side of the loch although many boat-owners also have a mooring in the loch for using during the summer months. A regular bus service to Dunoon makes the supermarkets, shops, hairdressers, eateries, pubs, sports and sailing clubs and cinema etc easily accessible. In addition, there are two ferry links to Gourock with rail and coach links meaning that Glasgow city centre is little more than an hour away, with Glasgow Airport, Braehead Shopping Centre and Greenock even closer.
