Located 2 miles south of Dunoon and 2 miles from the village of Innellan 93 Bullwood Road is a traditional Scottish cottage circa 1880 built from whinstone with a rendered finish under a tiled roof. The property sits just off the coast road in well-tended gardens with lawn to the front and sitting areas, ample parking to the front and the rear of the property, there are plenty of timber out buildings for storage including a garage, large shed and a wood-store, an elevated back garden which gives wonderful views up and down the Clyde Estuary. The property consists of, ground floor, Lounge, Sitting Room, Dining Room, Master Bedroom, Ensuite, Kitchen, Utility Room, Sunroom, W.C. On the upper floor - 3 bedrooms two are currently being used as offices and a Family Bathroom.
The property is very well maintained by the present owners who have ensured the property is presented to the market in a top condition. The property has been insulated where possible and has gas central heating and double glazing, the property also benefits from having Solar Panels (photovoltaic panels) which subsidises the electricity usage of the property. The 4kW solar panel array was installed in May 2011 under the first 20 year duration Government Feed-in-Tariff scheme. Since then the panels have produced an average annual income of £1550 and have reduced electricity usage by approximately 45%.
The property is located on the Bullwood Road south of Dunoon on the Cowal Peninsula which is renowned for its beauty and tranquillity. The local amenities can be found in Dunoon or Innellan which include a village shop, post office and 2 pub restaurants, there is also a busy village hall, golf, bowls and tennis clubs and of course plenty of walks. A 2 mile journey takes you to Dunoon, which has a good selection of shops and restaurants, a cinema and swimming pool with flume and fitness suite/gym. Dunoon is of course the home of the Cowal Gathering, the largest and most spectacular highland games in the world.
Cowal is well known as the gateway to the Scottish Highlands, and is little over an hour from Glasgow. Take some time out and escape to this idyllic part of Scotland which is a haven for wildlife and outdoor activities, but also has great restaurants, pubs and festivals. The ferry trip across the Firth of Clyde is a fine introduction to the Cowal Peninsula. To the north the mountains surrounding the sea lochs of Loch Long and Loch Goil provide a stunning backdrop as the ferry arrives at the town of Dunoon, which has a great choice of shopping and eating out. Built around two sheltered bays, and with wonderful views over the water, Dunoon is also the seaboard gateway to the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. For such a small part of Scotland, there is an amazing contrast in the landscape throughout the Peninsula. North Cowal is distinctively rugged and remote, with Loch Eck surely one of the most breathtakingly picturesque stretches of water in Europe. South East Cowal is the home of Cowal's only major town, Dunoon, the location of amazing historic botanical gardens with a coastline indented with sea lochs and peppered with many lively small communities. South West Cowal is "Argyll’s Secret Coast", a remote and beautiful stretch of Cowal Coastline taking in the spectacular Kyles of Bute and the picturesque town of Tighnabruaich. It is a great area for outdoor activities, especially sailing, as well as excellent hospitality, yet is less than two hours from the central belt of Scotland.
