Westering Sun, Farm Road, Gourock, Renfrewshire and Inverclyde, PA19 1GY

Fixed Price £365,000

Type of property: Villa
Number of bedrooms: 4

Few homes can truly be described as unique, but this house — inspired by an open-plan Canadian design — is a one-off. This superior modern detached villa is located in a secluded woodland site of about one third of an acre on an elevated position above the Clyde shore in Gourock.

The location is fantastic, with spectacular views over the Clyde and the Argyllshire hills beyond. The property was named after the novel "The Westering Sun" by local author George Blake, inspired both by the local setting of Blake's novels as well as the superb views of the sun setting in the West over the Holy Loch. When built in 1969 the site was tucked against what was then the extreme western corner of Gourock. This highly desirable house was built and owned by the MacLean family. Donald MacLean worked in the building trade and developed the property based on an innovative Canadian design that was attracting considerable interest at the time. The house is superbly designed on two levels that would be equally appropriate for use as a large family home or to provide a degree of privacy for teenage children, elderly relatives or a home office. The house has electric heating and is double glazed throughout. It has extensive storage space, including built-in wardrobes in all bedrooms. Each floor has open plan areas that provide a spacious focus for the living accommodation

The upper floor comprises of a large living room (14' x 13'6) leading to dining room (11' x 9'3), kitchen (11' x 12'6), and hallway (21'6 x 3'6), off of which is a bathroom (11' x 5'6) and three double bedrooms (11' x 11' and two 10'9 x 8'). On the ground floor there is a large public room (11'6 x 13'3) with open plan access to an adjoining open area (11'6 x 12'), and hallway (22' x 3'6), off of which is a utility room (8'6 x 9'6), bathroom (9' x 5'6) and three further rooms (11'4 x 8', 11'4 x 7'9 and 10'9 x 8') suitable for use as double bedrooms, study/workrooms or playrooms.

While the current layout provides a considerable amount of flexibility in use, the structure of the property is such that there is considerable scope for redesigning internal areas to meet more specific requirements if desired. Considerable grounds surround the house, providing an extensive garden and patio area as well as plenty of space for car parking.

The regular bus service between Largs and Glasgow and the Western Ferries terminal to Dunoon are only 3 minutes’ walk away. Gourock railway station with direct links to Glasgow is just 5 minutes by car and Glasgow airport only 25 minutes. There is easy access to excellent local amenities. Gourock Golf course 7 minutes away; Barrhill bowling club 6 minutes way and the Royal Gourock Yacht Club only 4 minutes away. The district has a number of good schools and further education is provided by James Watt College.
