Bachuil House & Hawthorn Cottage
Bachuil is on the beautiful island of Lismore which forms part of the Inner Hebrides on the west coast of Scotland, a group of small islands famous for their stunning views, sandy beaches, world class sailing and temperate climate. Bachuil House, which was built in 1864 and extended in the 1960s, is B listed and sits on land that has been in the same family ownership since the 6th century. The house has been refurbished and currently provides AA 4 star B&B accommodation, while recently renovated Hawthorn Cottage within the grounds has the potential to offer supplementary or letting accommodation.
Bachuil House is a handsome traditional house on a sheltered, elevated site with far reaching views across Lynn of Lorn to Oban. The property has benefited from significant investment over the years including partial re-roofing, partial secondary/double glazing, the installation of solar panels and the conversion of the chapel into a delightful, spacious drawing room and connecting dining room with french windows. In 2010, the bedroom accommodation was sympathetically refurbished to a high standard to create 3 en suite B&B bedrooms.
A former barn in the grounds has been converted into a large games room with stores and workshop space below, while a recently built shed is used as an artist's studio and the workshop/garage adjacent to the house, together with the barn, offer potential for development. The house is set in pretty, landscaped gardens surrounded by grass paddocks.
Hawthorn House is a charming, fully renovated house with spacious and very comfortable accommodation. The property lies just a short walk from Bachuil House and has potential as a residential or holiday let.
