A fantastic opportunity to purchase a substantial property with separate Coach House on a large plot with stunning views to the Clyde Estuary. Springfield and the Coach House have been partly renovated and once completed will make a truly wonderful home.
Springfield sits in a large plot of 1.47 acres with a large garden to the front making the most of the beautiful sea views, a coach house to the rear and a wooded area beyond. The current owners had intended making a tennis court to the rear. Work was started several years ago but due to the passing of the owner work stopped and Springfield is now ready for a new owner to complete the work.
Internally the property has been stripped back to the stone walls and the first phase of renovation has taken place with the timber framework being erected, under floor heating in place, boilers fitted in both properties, quality double glazing, new roof and many other aspects of renovation in place.
The main house extends over 2 levels and covers approximately 1671 Sq ft (155 Sq m), with the current plans for 6 bedrooms, sitting room, 4 bathrooms, library/sunroom, kitchen and dining room and utility room. The coach house which covers approximately 1271 Sq ft (118 Sq m), could consist of Kitchen/Dining area, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, lounge and a roof deck. A covered area connects both houses together and there are plans for a sauna, hot-tub, and 2 W.c-s.
Springfield is located on Shore Road in the bustling west coast village of Innellan which is about 4 miles south of Dunoon and has 2 pub/restaurants, village store and post office, a Village Hall, which hosts Carpet Bowls, Art Classes, Yoga, Badminton, wi and lots more. There is a 9 hole golf course with panoramic views, a bowling/tennis club, riding stables, primary school, and many other outdoor activities within the area.
Dunoon is the main town of the Cowal Peninsula and has a complete range of shopping, leisure and professional services. The town has a good range of welcoming pubs and restaurants, a theatre, cinema, swimming pool and leisure centre. The area is well served with reputable primary and secondary schooling including Innellan and Toward Primary and Dunoon Grammar School.
At Dunoon there are both the Argyll Ferries and Western Ferry terminals from where there are frequent passenger and vehicular sailings across to Gourock. From here the road and public transport links make it possible to commute on a daily basis to Glasgow and the central belt. Holidaymakers to Cowal experience the feeling of apparent mainland detachment created by the pleasant short ferry crossing. It is possible to drive to Glasgow via Loch Lomond which takes a little longer but is via some of the most famous and breath-taking countryside in western Scotland. Dunoon is also the gateway to the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. The area has some of the most dramatic and picturesque scenery in the west of Scotland which includes Benmore Botanical Gardens.
As with most parts of Scotland one is never too far from a golf course and Dunoon is no exception, the district having three challenging courses. The expanding Holy Loch Marina is nearby with its berthing and associated and chandlery services, an excellent base from which to sail and explore the world famous lower Clyde and Kyles of Bute inland sea lochs and waterways. Toward sailing club is a further mile along the A815. Sea fishing is available on the Firth of Clyde, and it is possible to fish for salmon and sea trout by permit on some of the rivers and lochs of the district. Some of the local estates can, by arrangement, offer rough and commercial shooting as well as opportunities to stalk for roe, sika and red deer. The area is renowned for its spectacular scenery and wildlife. There are endless walks, hill climbs and quiet country roads offering wonderful rambling and cycling country.
