Commanding a superb position above the iconic town of Tobermory on the sought after Island of Mull, The Manse is an exceptional example of a Scottish baronial style mansion. The property, which dates from 1900, enjoys stunning, far reaching viewings across the Sound of Mull and Calve Island to the Morvern Peninsula. The Manse is conveniently located a short walk from the town centre with its famous painted houses overlooking the picturesque harbour. The town offers a wide choice of artisan shops, cafés and restaurants. There is also a post office, primary and secondary schools and medical practice. The island’s distillery is also nearby and the famous, award winning Mull theatre.
The Manse is also within easy reach of Craignure, from where regular daily ferry services operate to Argyll’s principle town Oban, with its extensive range of shops, professional services and other amenities. Alternative ferry services operate between Tobermory and Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and from Fishnish, also on Mull’s east coast, to Lochaline on the Morvern Peninsula. The Island of Mull remains one of Scotland’s most popular tourist destinations both as a haven for wildlife, including the white tailed and golden eagles and for its extensive choice of outdoor pursuits.
Under its current ownership, the detached, 4/5 bedroom property has been extended and significantly enhanced to create a stunning, practical, family home without compromising the character of the house. Improvements include a new porch, oak front and back doors, carved with Scottish thistles, fully fitted kitchen with 4 oven Aga, newly added bathroomss and large drawing room opening into a spacious dining room.
The property has been finished to an extremely high standard throughout and has retained many original features including attractive cornicing, wood panelling and skirting. The Manse offers flexible accommodation over two floors, with one bedroom and adjoining room on the lower landing making it suitable for use on a Bed and Breakfast basis.
