A delightful, island home on one of the original slate isles, 1 Cullipool is situated at the entrance to the conservation village of Cullipool on Luing’s west coast. The house, which has been created from 4 traditional slate workers’ cottages, offers substantial accommodation over 1.5 floors, whilst retaining all the character of the island’s original homes. Dating back to 1870, the property enjoys a superb position with far reaching sea views from the house and garden. Cullipool is one of two villages on Luing, a sought after island with a thriving community, which benefits from easy access via car ferry to the mainland and is within commuting distance of both Oban and Lochgilphead. The popular coastal town of Oban to the north offers a wide range of shops, retail outlets, leisure facilities and professional services. It also links the area via rail to Glasgow and via a range of ferry services from its harbour to the Inner and Outer Hebrides. Further north at Connel, the small airport runs regular services to the Western Isles with plans to connect to Glasgow in future.
1 Cullipool is a generously proportioned, detached, family home, suitable for permanent living and benefiting from a large garden to the rear of the property facing out to sea. The cottage, which is in need of refurbishment, is quirky and full of charm and offers scope for further expansion. As well as spacious ground floor accommodation including 4 bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and dining room, there is a large, converted loft for use as a further bedroom or two, study or play room. To the rear of the property, and accessed via a loft ladder, are a further two rooms, also suitable for use in a variety of ways, and separate cloakroom. Adjoining the property to the west is a large byre providing a superb opportunity to create additional living space subject to any required planning consents.
Accessed via an opening to the side of the property and from two external doors from the cottage, the garden extends to the rear offering a more sheltered area with lawn, mature borders and shed before opening up into a larger area to the rear and side. Adjoining this part of the garden to the south is a further area of land. Together, these comprise a considerably larger than average sized plot and offer a superb play area for children and space to entertain. The garden enjoys stunning, westerly panoramic views across the Sound of Luing to the islands of Shuna and Mull, as well as the Garvellachs and Fladda Lighthouse. Parking is available to the front of the cottage with the potential for further parking to the rear with access via a metal gate from the road. The boundary is marked predominantly by attractive dry stone walling.
