The Herald - Scotland's Homes - - Welcome Home -

WHAT: A C-Listed cot­tage in gen­er­ous shel­tered gar­dens on the fringes of the town that's well worth a trip doon the wat­ter to see. WHERE: Rothe­say has shop­ping, leisure and ed­u­ca­tional fa­cil­i­ties. There is a ferry ser­vice to We­myss Bay with rail links to Glas­gow and a ser­vice from Rhu­bo­dach to Colin­traive for Ar­gyll and the west High­lands. The town has an 18-hole golf course, with views of the Firth of Clyde and Arran, and smaller cour­ses at Port Bannatyne and Kin­garth. Bute's mild cli­mate is a boon for for coastal and hill walk­ers and moun­tain bik­ers. Sea fish­ing is avail­able around the Firth of Clyde and the Kyles of Bute and there are op­por­tu­ni­ties to stalk and shoot. The area is noted for sail­ing.

WHY: The house is light and bright and has shel­tered gar­dens. The rear, which faces to the south and west, can be a real sun trap. The sit­ting room is open-plan to the din­ing room and kitchen, and a door from there leads to the pa­tio out­side.Off the sit­ting room is a cloak­room and ground floor shower room. There is also a main lounge and a home of­fice/study or fourth bed­room with french doors to a deck.

The ground floor also fea­tures the main bed­room at the north­ern side. Up­stairs are the sec­ond and third bed­rooms and a bath­room.

Out­build­ings in­clude a trac­tor shed, tool store and dou­ble garage. The drive­way leads to a turn­ing and hard-stand­ing area.

For the most part the gar­dens are laid to grass, so eas­ily main­tained and are sur­rounded by hedgerow. The rear gar­den fea­tures a pond at the lower level and has quite a few ma­ture and pro­duc­tive fruit trees. Not to be out­done, the front fea­tures two sig­nif­i­cant Mon­key Puz­zle trees. PRICE: Of­fers over £320,000. CON­TACT: Strutt & Parker, tel: 0141 225 3880.
