Auchengower Cottage epitomises classic period architecture and contemporary interior design at its very best.

This locally admired detached cottage, located on the northern shore of Loch Long, commands wonderful views over the loch, the wider Clyde estuary and beyond to the Cowal peninsula.

Considerable imagination, time and expense has been committed to the restoration of this striking, \?B\? listed detached former gatehouse - dating from the late 19th century, which is presented to the market in \?show house\? condition.

The property has been successfully extended and completely renovated under close architect supervision and features a brand new interior - complemented by a high standard of fixtures and fittings.

Auchengower Cottage is undoubtedly one of the most attractive cottages on the Rosneath peninsula with its newly replaced, highly distinctive patterned slate roof, in original style and random rubble (whinstone) stonework, accented by architectural sandstone detailing.

The accommodation comprises: Entrance vestibule with solid oak door, reception hall, cloakroom /wc with two piece suite, characterful lounge with large \?apex\? styled window, traditionally styled fireplace and understair storage cupboard, formal dining / sitting room with \?period\? styled fireplace (and featuring lovely loch views) and newly fitted dining kitchen with integrated appliances and hardwood \?stable\? styled back door. Upstairs leads to an illuminated landing - with built-in storage cupboard, two stylish bedrooms with exposed beam ceilings and built-in wardrobes and beautifully appointed bathroom with shower enclosure, exposed stone wall (with feature lighting) and under-floor heating.

The property\?s broad ranging specification includes: solid oak internal doors, quality hardwood flooring, brand new kitchen with quality integrated appliances, low voltage down-lighting, restored pine window surrounds, designer sanitary ware, \?sash and case\? and Lancet styled windows, a LPG fired central heating system (installed in 2013), \?stable\? styled kitchen door, quality ironmongery and built-in wardrobes.

The garden retains the substantial gate piers and original stone and wrought iron westerly facing boundary (which is one of the property\?s defining features) and provides off - road parking for several cars.

Forming part of the picturesque coastal hamlet of Cove, which boasts a number of impressive detached Victorian family homes (and is the home of Cove sailing club), Auchengower Cottage is located some two miles to the west of the village of Kilcreggan - which is the only village within the Clyde estuary to offer a passenger ferry service to Gourock (with onward train services to Glasgow).

The Rosneath peninsula (of which Cove forms part) offers first class sailing facilities; including the boat yard at Rosneath and both Rhu marina and the Royal Northern and Clyde sailing club are less than 12 miles away.

The Clyde estuary and the Lomond and Trossachs National Park are areas of outstanding natural beauty. The National Park is home to Loch Lomond golf course, the renowned De Vere Cameron House hotel and the championship standard Carrick golf course and spa.

Fishing, hill-walkers and out-door enthusiasts are spoilt with the wealth of amenities on offer within the estuary and National park which include country estates, challenging mountain ranges, nature trails, water sports facilities and out-door centres.

The village of Garelochhead, 8 miles away, is located on the West Coast main-line which is widely considered to be the most picturesque train journey in Britain, linking Glasgow with Oban, Fort William and Mallaig.
