This most attractive, detached, cottage-style property enjoys a superb position off a quiet lane surrounded by a pretty garden and with far reaching views across the Sound of Mull to the Morvern Peninsula. The delightful village of Salen, a short walk away, offers a choice of services including shops, restaurant, post office, coffee shop and primary school. The village was developed as a commercial hub in the 1830s by Lachlan MacQuarrie, known as the ‘Father of Australia’, when a harbour and new stone houses were built. The original part of Creag-a-Croman dates from about 1840 and was the blacksmith’s cottage. Salen and the area around it enjoys an idyllic setting with coastal walks, abundant wildlife and historic sites such as Aros Castle close by. It is also conveniently situated between Craignure to the south, offering daily ferry sailings to Oban and Tobermory to the north, Mull’s main town with its range of shops and restaurants, secondary school and popular attractions, including the award winning Mull Theatre and famous distillery.
Creag-a-Croman is a delightful and deceptively spacious cottage extended over the years to offer well-proportioned accommodation over 1.5 floors. The property has been significantly enhanced by the current owners to create a practical and comfortable home for contemporary living without compromising the character of the original house. Additions include a new kitchen with solid oak floor, stair case to the first floor, new boiler, oil tank and two multi fuel stoves. The lovely coastal style kitchen has also been opened up with the adjoining sun room to create a delightful space to sit and relax while enjoying extensive views over the surrounding garden.
The property has also been recently redecorated throughout. As well as 2 good size ground floor bedrooms, the converted attic is also suitable for use as a bedroom, study or play area. An additional, adjoining attic also offers scope for development.

Creag-a-Croman is surrounded by a very pretty, mature garden including borders, lawns, pond and rose beds. Beyond the garden to the rear is a further large area of land which offers scope for use in a variety of ways subject to any required planning consents. Within the garden is a range of outbuildings including a store adjoining the house with power, a poly tunnel and garden shed. A further shed, formerly a stable, is also equipped with power and light. Unusually for Mull, the property comes with a garage situated to the side of the house and accessible via a side door and from the road.
