Situation
The White House is located in the hamlet of Ardentinny which is part of the ribbon settlement that runs south to north along the western side of Loch Long in the west of Scotland.

From its fine coastal position there are spectacular waterscape views over Loch long to its neck that connects with the upper Firth of Clyde, east to the Rosneath Peninsula and south to Gourock on the mainland.

Ardentinny has a church and the nearest local provisions store and post office is at Stone. The neighbouring hamlet of Kilmun has a hotel with excellent bistro restaurant and a historic church and mausoleum.

Dunoon, 16.9 miles away, has more extensive facilities as well as a library, hospital, leisure centre and swimming pool. Greenock, (by ferry crossing), is about 20.8 miles, and the Braehead retail village at 43.2 miles, offer many of the major high street multiples.

There is a regular bus service to Dunoon and a passenger ferry from Dunoon to connect with trains from Gourock to Glasgow.

There is a primary school in Strone and both further primary and secondary schooling in Dunoon, including the refurbished Dunoon Grammar School which enjoys an excellent reputation.

Set within the National Park and the Argyll Forest, The White House is a few minutes' drive from the towering Californian redwoods at Benmore and the stunning beauty of the freshwater Loch Eck. Salmon and sea trout run the nearby River Eachaig.

The area is renowned for its natural beauty with many miles of quiet roads, forest trails and hillside tracks.

For sailing enthusiasts, the Firth of Clyde offers some of the most scenic sailing in western Europe and there are marina and chandlery services at The Holy Loch, Port Bannatyne, Portavadie, Inverkip and Largs.

As with most parts of Scotland one is never too far from a golf course and The White House is no exception, the Blairmore and Strone Golf club are a short way along the coast from Ardentinny.

Gardens
Shared access via gravel driveway, well maintained tarmac pathway from the roadside to the rear of the property. A mature lawn is around the house and the gardens are bounded by close board fencing.
