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.

Of­fers over £440,000 are in­vited – email tigh­nan­ross.co.uk
