Full description

Glendale House is situated in an elevated position and enjoys exceptional views across Loch Fyne, full height ceilings and a wealth of period features. The property, dating from 1880, is entered through a canopy portico that opens into the tiled vestibule, this leads to the welcoming reception hall that gives access to the three downstairs reception rooms as well as a study and WC.

The large drawing room benefits from delicate plaster work, a wood-burning stove and a bay window affording excellent views over the loch. Beyond this is the sitting room, ideal for informal entertaining and relaxing with an open fire. Situated to the front of the house is an impressive dining room, which benefits from a turret and fine views over the loch. There is also a study with fitted oak cupboards and a log-burning stove. To the rear of the house is the well-designed kitchen/breakfast room, equipped with integrated units and ample space for a dining table. A split stable door opens into the rear garden. Accessed from the kitchen is a recently refurbished utility room as well as a pantry and boiler room.

A period staircase leads from the hall to a half landing with a large stained glass window. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with an en-suite shower room cleverly installed in the turret. There are three further bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and one with an en-suite bathroom. There is also a family bathroom. A generously proportioned music room is also to be found on the first floor. This has a fantastic bay window and could easily be furnished as a spectacular further bedroom.

The property is easy to run with energy efficient features such as Anglian sash windows and solar-voltaic panels discreetly placed at the rear of the property.

Strachur and Loch Fyne are well known for their natural scenic beauty. Strachur provides a number of local facilities including a doctor’s surgery, post office and a primary school. Nearby Dunoon offers a wider range of amenities, including a secondary school and a supermarket. The property has a sought after mooring on Loch Fyne, giving access to the entire West coast of Scotland, one of the finest cruising grounds in the world.

In keeping with the main house, a fitted garage has recently been added, the architecture of which features Elgin sandstone. From the garage, internal stairs lead to a fitness and conditioning studio, however this could be furnished to suit a number of needs, including a home office.

A bell mouth type entry with twin leaf steel gates leads to a tarmacadam surfaced driveway. The front gardens are laid mainly to lawn and set behind a dwarf stonewall and mixed hedge. A fine specimen Chilean Pine, the canopy of which is above the view line, dominates the front garden. A raised deck and pond are at the eastern side and provide alfresco dining and outside sitting space. The rear gardens feature a further sloping lawn bounded by a stonewall and fringed with trees and bushes as well as a well-stocked alpine and herbaceous bed. The garden is a haven for wildlife and regular visitors include pheasants, red squirrels, woodpeckers and the occasional pine marten. Provision has been made for electrical power in both the front and rear garden.
