Wonderful house by the sea in Argyll

Rockfield House is a highly contemporary property with light, bright accommodation over two floors. The spacious sitting and dining rooms each have fireplaces and access to the terrace, while the kitchen is large enough to provide space for informal dining.

The library lies beyond the kitchen, as do the larder, workshop, laundry room, wine and gun room. The master bedroom suite lies on the ground floor, as well as one further bedroom and bathroom. Upstairs are three further bedrooms and three bathrooms, one of which has the spa bath, sauna shower and two offices. A large cellar area provides extensive storage.

Outside, the gardens provide a riot of colour and are well maintained. Beyond is an area of semi-natural woodland, while the grounds go up to the high water mark and provide 150m of sea-frontage. A timber building in the garden houses the swimming pool and spa.
