Situated in a pleasant, rural location on the fringe of the coastal village of Scalasaig on the Isle of Colonsay, The Old Smiddy offers buyers an opportunity to acquire a beautifully presented traditional three-bedroom cottage, a charming property dating back to the mid-1800s. Originally a working smiddy and forge servicing the island, the property is steeped in history and enjoys a picturesque location within the village.
The property is entered from the front elevation, with the main entrance leading through to a combined kitchen and dining room. The kitchen design features a range of white-coloured farmhousestyle wall and floor units, complimented by a solid wooden worktop. The door to the rear of the kitchen leads through to the utility room, which, in turn, gives access to the rear garden of the property. A ground floor shower room is also accessed from the utility room. A doorway from the kitchen leads through to the family lounge, an inviting room positioned centrally within the property. This wonderful living space is warmed through by an open grate fire, a focal point within the room.
Positioned to the left of the property, a sitting room offers views out to the front and rear gardens. Originally the working forge for the smiddy, this location was the beating heart of the property. A woodburning stove now sits within the fire surround, offering warmth and comfort in equal measure. French doors opposite to the front, leading to the front garden areas.
The staircase leads from the utility room to the upper floor where a central landing links three bedrooms and a family bathroom.
