Buyers given rare chance to buy stone-built Victorian villa

A STONE-BUILT Victorian villa with panoramic views over one of Scotland’s most stunning areas of coastal scenery has been put up for sale.

Built in 1879, Sherbrooke in Tighnabruaich, Argyll and Bute, is set in one acre of beautiful mature gardens with breathtaking views over the Kyles of Bute.

The eight bedroom house combines the perfect blend of period features with contemporary style to make an exciting proposition for potential buyers.

On the market with property experts Bell Ingram for offers over £620,000, the sale includes a two-bedroom cottage which can be used as an extension to the main house or as self-contained accommodation.

Carl Warden, Senior Associate at Bell Ingram, said: “Sherbrooke’s setting offers buyers the chance to purchase an idyllic lifestyle.

“On a bright summer’s day, I can’t imagine many nicer places to be, with the biscuit tin views across one of the country’s most beautiful locations.

“The generous living spaces make the most of the Victorian design to offer the perfect spaces for large families, filled with natural light.”

The grand home is entered via a vestibule which leads a magnificent reception hall with ornate cornicing and pine flooring.

The drawing room features an open fireplace and triple windows while two antique mirrors reflect the light and majestic waterfront views.

Integrated appliances give the kitchen a modern feel while new buyers can look out over the colourful garden from the double window.

A pine staircase leads to the first floor and the principal bedrooms and bathrooms, with further bedrooms on the second floor, each with ample storage.

The gardens boast dramatic but well-kept foliage and rolling lawns, adding to the property’s enchanting feel.

Alongside a substantial sweeping driveway, there is also self-contained two-bedroom property, neatly tucked away at the rear of the building.

The cottage can be used either as an extension of the main house or, as separate accommodation.

It is fitted with a modern fully-equipped kitchen and two double bedrooms with side-facing windows, each with a wardrobe and shelved cupboard.

Carl added: “The cottage is a great living space and could easily offer extra room for new buyers or even double up as a potential holiday letting business,”

The surrounding area is rich in natural beauty, perfect for wildlife enthusiasts.

Seals, dolphins, basking sharks and even the occasional whale can all be spotted off Tighnabruaich’s stunning shorelines.
