West Glen Images for Property PR

HOUSE hunters looking to make a move to the ideal coastal property just in time for summer are encouraged to discover West Glen – a unique period home with shore frontage, a jetty and panoramic views over the Kyles of Bute.

The stunning, six bedroom property is located in a National Scenic Area in the quiet waterside village of Tighnbruaich in Argyll and Bute. It dates from around 1860, is of traditional construction and is set in around 13 acres of land.

To add to the whole attractive package, West Glen has a detached two bedroom cottage in its grounds – offering the buyer the not to be missed opportunity to reap the benefits of additional income via holiday letting – as well as a large boathouse and a variety of outbuildings.

What’s more, it was extended in 1991 to form an additional wing with three bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom – ideal as accommodation for families with teenagers or dependent relatives.

Located 25 miles from Rothesay (via ferry) and 80 miles from Glasgow, West Glen is currently on the market with Perthshire-based Chartered Surveyors, Land and Estate Agents Bell Ingram for offers over £850,000.

Carl Warden, of Bell Ingram’s Perth office, said: “This is a truly must see property as the coastal views and extensive land on offer are exceptional and can only be fully appreciated in person.

“The detached cottage also gives business savvy buyers the chance to embrace a second stream of income, if so desired, and the boat house and outbuildings could be used in a variety of ways, such as an office or art studio.

“West Glen would be ideal for large and growing families seeking a rural and spacious home and, of course, perfectly suited to those with a keen interest in sailing as there is the slipway, jetty and a nearby area which provides further standing for boats.

“This is a rare and special property and would be the perfect place to spend carefree summer days and evenings.”

The ground floor of West Glen comprises two double bedrooms, a dining room, drawing room, kitchen, bathroom and hall, as well as a large sun porch with seating space which further highlights the outstanding views available. The upper floor features a further four double bedrooms, two further bathrooms and a dressing room.

West Glen Cottage is made up of two double bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and bathroom, making it the perfect size for a summer holiday let. The boathouse features a kitchen, office workshop and loading bay.

The local area offers much in the way of outdoor pursuits with fantastic cycling routes and kayaking, as well as huge sailing and yachting opportunities. It is also well known for its natural beauty and dramatic scenery and is a prime setting for wild life enthusiasts as herons, dolphins and basking sharks have all been observed.

Tighnabruaich Golf Club is a scenic and challenging 9-hole golf course, and there is also tennis available, as well as a famous sailing school.

The nearby area of Portavadie Marina has had significant investment over the last few years and is now home to fine restaurants, as well as a hotel and self-catering accommodation. In addition, there is a new world class spa and leisure facilities.

Viewings are strictly by appointment only and can be arranged through Bell Ingram’s Perthshire office on 01738 621 121.

Established 117 years ago, Bell Ingram has 130 professional staff across 11 UK offices including: farm, estate and forestry managers; chartered surveyors, estate agents, architects, planners, and building surveyors; and tourism, GIS mapping, and renewable energy specialists.
