The neighbouring village of Rhu offers a modern marina and is home to the world famous Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club.

Description

Stepping Stones is presently run by the owners as a private day nursery – further information can be obtained from the selling agents. The business operates from the ground floor of this charming Victorian detached villa, with the upper floor currently used as the owner’s family living accommodation.

Thought to date from around 1860, the property has been a thriving business for over 20 years. The upper half of the house is a welcoming home, enhanced by a split level rear extension which has created a wonderful master bedroom with glazed doors opening onto a balcony.

Accommodation

Stone steps from the gravelled driveway at the front of the house lead up to the entrance porch, with storm doors. The front door opens into a welcoming reception hallway which gives access to the ground floor reception rooms and a staircase to the upper floor.

The ground floor accommodation is presently used for nursery facilities: to the right of the hallway is the main playroom with sliding doors leading to a large games room with doors to the rear patio area. Accessed from the games room is a further room presently used as an additional nursery space with access to the kitchen and back to the reception hallway. The kitchen is fitted with floor and wall units and has a green Aga, windows to the front and side, room for a breakfast table and chairs, a utility cupboard and external stable door to the rear/side patio area. To the front is a further reception room presently used as the business office with windows overlooking the front garden. Two WCs complete the downstairs accommodation.

The first floor is accessed by a broad staircase with wooden balustrade. At the half landing is a small stairway leading to the master bedroom, which has Velux windows, fitted wardrobes and glass doors leading to a decked balcony area. Three steps from the master bedroom lead to a fabulous en suite bathroom with freestanding bath, shower cubicle, wash hand basin and WC. On the first floor are three further rooms, one presently used by the owners as an upstairs drawing room, the other two as double bedrooms. Also on this level is a three piece family bathroom.

Grounds

The house is accessed by gates; the garden to the front is mainly lawned with shrubs and trees. The gravelled driveway provides off street parking. To the side and rear is a secure paved patio area for outdoor play for the nursery children.

Square Footage: 2,229 sq ft
