Rosnevyth is an attractive, traditional, Victorian detached villa (Circa 1851) located in a private, semi-rural setting with a loch view and large gardens. The house is in very good order and has impressive accommodation extending to over 2500 sq ft which makes this a most comfortable family size property.
This wonderful family home features a traditional sandstone exterior and has been lovingly and recently refurbished, with high ceilings and many period features retained. The natural slate roof has been well maintained with dormer windows to both the front and rear.
On entering the property, the downstairs has two large reception rooms, currently in use as a lounge and dining room, with views to the front garden and loch. The bright hallway leads to a second lounge area, cloakroom and large, walk-in cupboard. To the rear, there is a modern, fitted, dining-sized kitchen with adjacent conservatory. From the kitchen, there is access to a large utility area and a further good-sized storeroom.
Upstairs, the light galleried landing leads to the bedrooms and a family bathroom. Three of the bedrooms have delightful views over Loch and the fourth largest room benefits from triple-aspect windows looking onto the rear and side gardens.
The house has a modern alarm system, external lighting, oil fired central heating with 3 year old boiler. Double glazed windows.
At the front, there is a large lawn with well-stocked borders, neat hedge and well cared for specimen trees, including a stunning Japanese Katsura. The original cast iron gates and hedge boarded driveway lead to a timber-framed outbuilding. A rear garden path leads to a natural lawn sown with wildflower meadow and bordered by a variety of mature trees and shrubs. The garden extends a considerable distance to the adjoining woodland at the back and provides pleasant views over the house to the loch and hills beyond.
Rosnevyth is located c. 1.7 miles from the village of Garelochhead which offers a reputable primary school, health centre, railway station (with services to Glasgow and sleeper to London), post office, general store, shops, local inn, parish church, community centre, outdoor centre, filling station, garage, park and bowling club.
The Gareloch provides excellent sailing opportunities and both Rhu Marina and The Royal Northern and Clyde Sailing Club are some 7 miles from the property. There are two boatyards located within the neighbouring village of Rosneath.
