Lot 8


Former Care Home, on the Roseneath Peninsula, overlooking Gare Loch – 1 Acre.


The property is situated on the sought after Roseneath Peninsula, just to the south-west of Garelochhead, overlooking Gare Loch. In a prime position, just off Shore Rd, the property enjoys stunning views to the south towards the Firth of Clyde. Local services are available in Garelochhead, whilst a greater range of facilities can be found in Helensburgh (8 miles) and Glasgow is some 42 miles to the east. Both Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park are within easy reach and there are train stations in both Garelochhead and Helensburgh.


From Helensburgh follow the A814 along the east side of Gare Loch, thorough Garelochhead and, at the head of the loch, turn left onto the B833 (Shore Rd). After around 0.6 mile, pass the entrance to Linden Lodge on the left and the next left turn comprises the access to the property, which is shared with adjacent owners.


The property comprises an attractive Victorian villa, with a more recent extension, all standing within mature garden grounds which run down towards the shore of Gare Loch. The original house is two storeys, of stone construction, under a slate clad roof and was converted, extended and upgraded to form a private residential care home. To the rear is a modern 1 ½ storey annex/extension under a pitched tile clad roof incorporating dormers. There is a raised decked patio overlooking the gardens and ample on-site car parking.
