Escape to an award-winning luxury house with its own private beach on Loch Long in stunning Argyll

Overlooking the mysterious waters of Loch Long and the Firth of Clyde, this exquisite property is a winner of numerous architectural awards. With an enviable waterfront location and exclusive use of a sheltered beach and jetty, there's plenty to see from the comfort of the property. If you fancy a stroll, just 1.5 miles away is the tiny hamlet of Cove with a welcoming pub; ideal for a delicious pub lunch and a wee dram of whisky.

Framed by seamless glass walls, the open-plan living space overlooks the beautiful Loch Long, creating the illusion of walking on water. On stormy days, the roaring wood burner adds to the dramatic atmosphere, creating the perfect backdrop for dining in style at the table or spotting porpoises, seals and amazing bird life in the waters below. The well-equipped kitchen is designed to cater for a full house and dinners can also be enjoyed from the stunning glass-fronted dining area or out on the covered teak deck which also features a state of the art BBQ. From the entrance hall, you'll find three of the double bedrooms, the twin bedroom and the family bathroom, each carefully finished with soothing contemporary decor. The utility room and a handy cloakroom are also on this floor, with stairs leading down to the final double bedroom, sitting area and shower room all leading to a slate deck and seawall.

To the north, there is another terrace with sun loungers, a shelter with an outside shower and superb hot tub overlooking the pebble beach. Enjoy sunny days, cold water dips or nights beneath the stars, whatever you choose, the hot tub makes them all invigorating. Fish for mackerel from the mini pier, arrange a charter boat to fetch you and go sailing on the word famous Firth of Clyde, or arrive by your own boat and moor up at Cape Cove. From the beach you can walk up to Tighe Choin, a micro gym with beautiful views before taking the boardwalk to the north of the land to Smiths Lookout where you will find an outside fire pit with seating and storage.

We absolutely loved staying at Cape Cove. The view from the massive picture window was stunning - during our stay we say dolphins and seals from the window. We sea kayaked and swam straight from the propertys beach, and the hot tub was welcome to return to! Its a well equipped house with lots of space and comfort. Wed go back in a heartbeat.

we were a group of 8 with some kids. The property and views were just what we expected. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed the games room, hot tub as much as we could. We would agree with previous comments that some minor TLC is required but this did not stop us from enjoying ourselves. Sundowners on the deck, watching the seals and submarines!

Spacious property with absolutely stunning views over Loch Long. Deck was great for eating/reading, plentiful seating by the hot tub. If it had been a bit warmer (we were there in May), the fire pit at the end of the garden might have been a great spot to watch the sun go down. Good local amenities (bar/restaurant within walking distance, butcher, Read more2 general shops, caf, pub within 3 miles). Only quibble would be that wardrobe/cupboard space might have been limited for 8 or more people. Hide

Fantastic relaxing location, let down by tired decor. On check out morning had a roofer on the drive with ladders out. Really could've waited until we left.
