Innish commands an imposing position, set back from the road with garden to the front and rear and circular gravel drive. The property enjoys delightful easterly views of the famous Clachan Bridge which crosses the Atlantic. The pretty bridge, which is covered in fairy foxglove in the early summer months, dates from the late 1700s and spans Clachan Sound linking Seil Island to the mainland. The property is situated on Argyll’s stunning West Coast, known for its unspoilt scenery and extensive and varied wildlife. A short walk from Innish is the highly acclaimed Tigh An Truish Inn run by chef-patron and sommelier-patron of the Michelin rated
restaurant Etive in Oban. The village of Balvicar is also close by and offers access to the sea from its sheltered bay. There is also a boatyard for repairs and winter storage. Also at Balvicar is a village shop and post office and 9-hole golf course. Closer to the property is a medical practice and at Ellenabeich a primary school. The popular coastal town of Oban is within easy reach by car and bus and offers a wide range of shops, cafés, restaurants, schools and
leisure facilities. The train station operates regular services to Glasgow and from the harbour are sailings to the Western Isles. Further north at Connel, a small airport offers flights to the Inner and Outer Hebrides with plans to extend to Glasgow in future.
Built for its current owners approximately 30 years ago, Innish is a large, 4 bedroom, detached property with adjoining 2 bedroom annexe. The house is lovely and light with many double aspect rooms and has been very well maintained. Innish would make a superb and very practical family home. It also offers versatile income potential, both as a bed and breakfast and as holiday accommodation with the spacious self-contained annexe adjoining the house. The annexe is also equally suited for permanent use.
Innish comprises 4 double bedrooms, one with en-suite, family bathroom, large sitting room, separate living room and very spacious dining kitchen. There is also a utility area and cloakroom. Above the kitchen are two storage rooms accessed via a ladder offering scope for potential development subject to any planning requirements. The adjoining annexe, which would benefit from some modernisation, is accessed externally via its own door to the rear of the house, and offers a ground floor bedroom, shower room, good size open plan kitchen living area and large first floor bedroom.
Both properties benefit from mains water, mains drainage and oil fired central heating, with a new boiler installed in 2021. Although the services for the annexe currently operate via the main house, we are advised these can be separated if required.
Innish is surrounded by a delightful garden which extends as lawn to the front of the house with a further large lawn to the rear which rises up to a flat area ideal for barbecues and entertaining. To the side of this area is a gate giving vehicular access to a track leading down to the road. The garden is bordered by mature trees and plants including rhododendrons, escallonia and fuchsia. The main access is via a track to the front of the property leading to the drive that extends around the house and offers parking for several cars.
On the far side of the property is a small stone store and to the front, beyond the access track, an area of common ground shared with neighbouring properties for recreational use. The boundary of the property is marked by a mix of volcanic and dry stone dykes plus stob and wire fencing.
