About the Property
This is a unique opportunity to purchase an immaculately presented character filled four bedroom DETACHED COTTAGE set over two levels which lies just within the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park above Greenock. The property which was built around 1825 is situated next to the Long Dam and Greenock Cut, which is a designated Ancient Monument.
The current owners have undertaken an extensive redevelopment project to form this modern detached home by redesigning the internal layout from two separate flats whilst retaining the external character of this well known local landmark. In 2017 the roof was refurbished and newly slates fitted. We are advised the building was rewired in 2013, with hard wired smoke and heat detectors installed. Specification includes: double glazing and gas central heating. There are two wood burning stoves and a working fireplace.
The semi rural location overlooks Greenock offering superb views to the River Clyde with the Argyllshire hills beyond forming an impressive backdrop. There are private enclosed landscaped terraced gardens which extend to the front, side and rear. The front / side garden benefits from a decked area ideal for relaxing, plus there are well stocked plots with selection of plants. There is a timber shed, coal bunker and wood store. A further raised deck features a seating area. To the rear of the house is a 3rd decked area and outhouse. The rear garden backs onto the surrounding countryside. A separate drying area for the property is located nearby.

There is a spacious front facing Dining Kitchen with quality oak style units, black high gloss work surfaces and splashback tiling.
