Pier pres­sure

The Herald - Scotland's Homes - - News -

ANOTHER one-off home that beg­gars be­lief is the Pier House in Tighnabru­aich, which at first glance looks as if the pier ac­tu­ally ex­tends from the house.

How­ever, turns out the pier and pro­ject­ing store with doors onto it, are owned and main­tained by the coun­cil and while the pier can be ac­cessed ex­ter­nally, the store sup­ports the most amaz­ing – and huge – paved roof ter­race with balustrade light­ing, an out­door space be­long­ing to the house that pro­vides panoramic views of the Kyles of Bute.

In­ter­nally, this some­what quirky and charis­matic two-storey home has an im­mense 46ft open-plan liv­ing/din­ing/kitchen/mu­sic area and en-suite dou­ble bed­room on the up­per level, with a study, two bed­rooms (one en suite), hall and small en­trance vestibule from Shore Road on the lower level.

Other no­table fea­tures in­clude won­der­ful Scottish pine floor­ing, multi-fuel stove, so­lar pan­els (wa­ter heat­ing only), moor­ing and a garage with both in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal ac­cess.

And although not in daily use, the Waver­ley pad­dle steamer reg­u­larly berths at the pier.

What can top that? Water­side Prop­erty in Dunoon in­vites of­fers over £320,000.

JETTY SET LIFE­STYLE: Buy­ers will be able to im­press their vis­i­tors with the view from the roof ter­race of Pier House in Tighnabru­aich.
