Overview

This south-west facing property is situated in an elevated coastal position and enjoys stunning sea views across Loch Linnhe towards the Ardgour Mountains and Kentallen. Originally designed as a sun-trap, this substantial three-storey family home, offers buyers an opportunity to use either as a family home or as a small scale bed and breakfast.

The entrance door is located to the side, leading into a welcoming lobby area. An open wooden staircase provides access to all levels of the house, with a gallery landing situated above the middle floor. The lower floor has been completely refurbished and now offers three en-suite bedrooms, each benefitting from an individual design. These rooms once formed the basis of a very successful bed and breakfast business, popular with tourists from around the world.

Situated at the front of the property and enjoying spectacular coastal views, bedroom one is the largest of the lower floor bedrooms at 379 ft2. The accommodation layout also features a sizable en-suite bathroom and walk-in dressing room. A central hallway gives further access to bedroom two, benefitting from a contemporary en-suite bathroom which features a wonderful freestanding oval bathtub. The third lower floor bedroom offers views out over the side gardens, with a patio door also giving access to a private seating area.

The ground floor layout features a wonderful family lounge, the largest room in the property. The room is warmed through by an open fireplace, offering warmth and comfort in equal measure. Patio doors open to a covered balcony area, perfectly positioned to capture the panoramic coastal views.

A dining room is also located to the front of the ground floor, large enough to offer a flexible seating combination. The family kitchen is located to the rear, with a design that incorporates a selection of farmhouse-style wall and floor units, complimented by a contrasting worktop. A doorway to the rear of the kitchen gives access to a stairway which, in turn, leads to the rear garden.

Located centrally on the ground floor, a bedroom has recently been used to store personal possessions but offers potential to convert to an en-suite bathroom by combining with the adjacent shower room. It also offers scope for use as a home study or office. The upper floor of the property enjoys a coombed ceiling design, with Velux windows flooding the rooms with natural daylight. Two generously proportioned double bedrooms and a single bedroom are located on the top floor, along with a bathroom, WC and separate shower room.
