This most impressive and generously proportioned property which dates back more than 100 years, is situated in the middle of a small street over looking the open sea in the delightful conservation village of Portnahaven on the stunning Inner Hebridean island of Islay. The spacious, 4 double bedroom home has been extensively enhanced by the current owners and includes a generously sized dining kitchen, en-suite facilities to both floors, restored fire places, solid wooden flooring and new oil fired boiler. Both the front and rear of the house have recently benefited from new guttering and have been professionally repainted.
Orsay House benefits from a decked area to the front only yards from the shore and offering spectacular sea views encompassing the Rinns lighthouse on Orsay Island which was designed by Robert Stevenson. To the rear is an extensive garden with pretty sheltered patio and a further raised patio with pergola which is ideal for entertaining. The property has been sympathetically improved to ensure the character of the house is retained as well as many of its original features. Orsay House offers very versatile accommodation making it suitable for permanent and holiday use with excellent rental income potential. It is also equally suited to operate as a B&B.
The mid terraced property is situated in a quiet location on a no through road at the far end of Portnahaven on the southern tip of the Rinns on Islays south west coast. The pretty fishing and crofting village which dates from the 19th century is characterised by a cluster of traditional fishermens cottages and a large bay which is protected by the neighbouring islands of Orsay and MacKenzie and where we understand it is possible to moor a boat. The day to day needs of the village are serviced by a shop/gallery, church and pub.
