CALADH Harbour and bay in the Kyles of Bute is renowned amongst sailors for providing shallow anchorage and shelter from most winds. But this picturesque coastal spot also offers an exceptional lifestyle for those who choose to remain on terra firma – and arguably the best site in the bay belongs to Tighnanross, a detached bungalow a few feet from the shore.
Built in the 1970s and extensively upgraded in the early 2000s to include improved insulation, the house offers easy living in spacious one-level accommodation comprising three double bedrooms (master en-suite), bathroom, utility, cloakroom and L-shaped open-plan living/dining area and kitchen overlooking the bay. This heart of the home has solid oak flooring, a woodburning stove in the living area, and a fully fitted kitchen work area with appliances.
An attic space, accessible from the hall, has been converted to create two further rooms with Velux windows. Presently used as a workshop and storage, this valuable extra space is ready to be developed as bedrooms or for extra living area.
Outside, the garden has also been extensively improved to provide a terraced lawn, large patio and a delightful raised deck facing the bay. The property also has a carport, two sheds, log store and external power – the sea wall has also been underpinned along its length and a set of concrete steps added to allow easy access to the beach. Sailors will also appreciate the davit for dinghies or outboard motors. There is also a mooring in the bay.
Easily accessible by road, bike, boat or on foot, Tighnabruaich village is a thriving community with good amenities - including a golf course, boat yard, sailing school and a shinty pitch – while the marina at Portavadie is a key attraction with restaurants, spa facilities and a pool complex.
