Situated in a most impressive location, Beathaich commands a stunning position above Calgary’s spectacular sandy beach on Mull’s northwest coast. The property, which has been in the same family ownership for many years, enjoys panoramic views over the bay and seaward to the islands of Coll and Tiree. Aside from the obvious attraction of the beach there is the popular Art in Nature trail and an artisan café offering local produce and a selection of island brewed beers.
Close by at Dervaig, the village shop and post office meet the daily needs of residents and there is also a primary school. A little further afield is Mull’s principal town Tobermory with its range of shops and restaurants, distillery and award winning theatre. It is also the location of the island’s highly regarded secondary school.
Mull is connected to the mainland via a choice of ferry services including from Craignure to the popular coastal town of Oban and from Tobermory to Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula. Additional services also operate between Fishnish on
Mull’s east coast and Lochaline on the Morvern Peninsula. Mull remains one of the most popular Inner Hebridean Islands with its dramatic and varied landscape, diverse wildlife and wide choice of outdoor pursuits.
Beathaich is a charming, detached, 4/5 bedroom house. Two original cottages dating from 1850’s were extended in the 1970’s to create a spacious family home. The property has benefited from a number of improvements over the years without compromising its character. These include a modern ground floor bath/shower room and an external
balcony accessed from the delightful first floor sitting room to take advantage of the superb outlook. The property, which would benefit from some refurbishment, offers well-proportioned accommodation with scope for further enhancement to suit modern day living. More recent improvements include re-wiring of the house and installation of a new UV water system.
The flexible accommodation comprises a porch, inner hall, dining room, dining kitchen, utility room, bathroom and bedroom on the ground floor. On the first floor are 3 further bedrooms, a fourth bedroom/study, Jack and Jill bathroom and a large sitting room.
GARDEN AND GROUNDS
The land round Beathaich is divided into two distinct areas. To the front of the property across the road to the north is an area of open grazing which includes a former fruit and vegetable patch. From here, the land drops down towards the sea but does not extend to the shore. The beach which offers safe swimming is a one minute walk down the road.
The main garden surrounds the house. To the front is a small lawn and herbaceous border. To either side there are undulating lawns punctuated by rocky outcrops amongst which are a number of enchanting spaces populated with a lovely mix of mature trees, shrubs and hedging. To the rear of the house the garden rises up to a bank of hazel and broadleaves. There is a greenhouse on the gable end of the house and the back drive leads to a double garage and sheds at the east side of the garden. There is a further parking space directly to the front of the property. A mix of stone walls and fences mark the boundary.
