About the Property
This light and airy three bedroom EXTENDED SEMI DETACHED VILLA occupies a large plot within highly sought after West End location and is set within attractive spacious landscaped gardens which backs onto the grounds of Sir Gabriel Wood’s Mariners’ Home. This rarely available family home has been in current ownership for last 60 years.
The property lies within easy walking distance of Fort Matilda railway station with frequent service to Glasgow which is ideal for commuters. The Greenock Wanderers playing fields, Esplanade and Battery Park are all nearby. There are impressive views, especially from upstairs apartments towards the Firth of Clyde spanning from the Holy Loch to the Roseneath Peninsula with the Argyllshire hills beyond.
We are advised that the house was completed shortly before WW2 and, following the war, the owner at that time purchased an additional adjacent plot which housed a Nissen hut used by the Women’s Royal Naval Service (the Wrens) during wartime. This substantial outbuilding (36’9 x 17’7) is still used today as a large garage / workroom and it may offer future development potential, subject to requisite permissions being granted. It offers an ideal workspace for DIY projects and hobbies. A paved driveway offers parking for two cars with a further hardstand area.
There are enclosed well stocked gardens which extend to the front, side and rear. The front garden features a lawned area, selection of plants/shrubs and pond. A path leads to the side garden with further plants which then gives access to the rear garden benefiting from a paved patio area with ample space for table and chairs offering a perfect space for summer days.
