Courtyard Cottage is a delightful two storey semi-detached home that enjoys a peaceful and picturesque setting with a cobbled courtyard to the front and beautifully presented and extensively landscaped terraced gardens to the rear. There are fantastic views from the back gardens of the house across Loch Fyne and the surrounding countryside. The gardens feature extensive lawns, terraced sitting areas that take advantage of the lovely views, a large ornamental pond and beautifully built dry stone retaining walls. Adjacent to the house itself is a substantial stone built byre that currently is perfect for car garaging and storage. The byre has been granted planning permission for conversion into two separate properties, each of which will have their own garden space to the rear of the building. This planning permission affords the buyer a great opportunity for potential holiday let accommodation/Air BnB or just to add additional accommodation that supplements the main house. A copy of the planning permission can be inspected at the offices of Clyde Property in Helensburgh or alternatively online in the Planning section of the Argyll and Bute Council website (Ref:13/01665/PP) EPC - Band D
