Situated in a sheltered position in the heart of Cullipool Village, this attractive, traditional B listed cottage, once home to slate workers who quarried on the island, provides comfortable accommodation in a popular West Coast location. The property, which has been in the same family ownership for many years, has been operating as a successful holiday let and is being sold complete with contents ready to occupy. The deceptively spacious 3 bedroom, semi detached cottage, which has been extended and fully refurbished in the past by the current owner, includes a ground floor bedroom with adjacent bathroom and open plan living/dining area. As well as a good size rear garden, the site includes an additional area of land to the front of the cottage for which planning permission (since lapsed) was granted for a separate dwelling. Alternatively, the area could be used for an outbuilding and off street parking. Although close to the shore, the cottage enjoys a more tranquil setting in the village and benefits from the protection of the hills behind it which provide a stunning back drop. From the coast it is possible to enjoy far reaching views across the Sound of Luing to the Garvellachs and Mull and stunning west coast sunsets.
Famous for its breed of cattle, Luing is one of the most accessible of the Inner Hebridean islands with a regular car ferry service to the mainland taking approximately 4 minutes. The island is serviced by a licensed shop with post office, café, church and primary school, as well as two village halls and Atlantic Islands Centre which host a variety of events throughout the year. Off the island, the main transport links are within easy reach providing access to the popular coastal town of Oban with its wide range of shops, restaurants and other amenities.
To the side of the property is a path with picket gate leading to the rear garden with large patio ideal for sitting and relaxing. Also within this area is a sheltered space with the potential to create a covered area. At the end of the patio is a wire fence beyond which the garden extends some distance. This area is full of mature trees and plants and offers scope for development in a variety of ways. To the front of the property, opposite the small road, is a further area of garden with grass verge and mature shrubs and plants beyond. The site, which is bordered on 3 sides by dry stone walls, has had planning permission in the past and we understand would be suitable for development subject to the usual planning consents. Alternatively, the area can be used for parking for several cars and garage/large workshop.
