Kilmory Cottage is a delightful, detached generously proportioned 5 bedroom family home situated in an elevated positon above Tobermory town and within walking distance of the town centre with its choice of shops, cafés and restaurants. The island’s highly acclaimed high school is also a short walk away from the property and a primary school, medical practice and post office are also close by.
Mull remains one of Scotland’s most popular islands both to live and visit due to its wide range of outdoor pursuits, extensive wildlife and varied local attractions including the famous award winning Mull theatre, island distillery and golf course.
Mull also lies within easy reach of the mainland with a number of daily ferry services operating from Craignure to Argyll’s principal town Oban, offering an extensive range of shops, professional services and other amenities. Ferry services also operate between Tobermory and Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and from Fishnish, on Mull’s east coast, to Lochaline on the Morvern Peninsula.
Situated in a popular residential area, Kilmory Cottage has been extensively enhanced by the current owners to offer attractive and practical accommodation over 1.5 floors. The property benefits from a number of eco improvements including the installation of an air source heat pump, solar panels and heat recovery system to ensure maximum efficiency throughout. Both the heat pump and solar installation are eligible for tariff payments with a number of years remaining. In addition to these enhancements, the property has been extensively refurbished in recent years to include a new kitchen, new en-suite to the main bedroom, refurbished family bathroom and new carpeting throughout. As well as 4 good sized first floor bedrooms and family bathroom is a ground floor bedroom, adjoining shower room and snug, currently used as a self-contained unit. Also on the ground floor is a porch, entrance hall and large family sitting room opening into a dining room and contemporary kitchen.
Eternally, the property is surrounded by a large garden laid mainly to lawn with mature trees, pretty borders and a choice of seating areas. Adjoining the dining room and accessed via French doors is a raised deck with storage area below. From the deck, steps lead down to the south facing rear garden with grass bank sloping down to the main area of lawn. To the front of the house is a further area of lawn with central path leading to a gate beyond which is a hard standing suitable as a parking area for 2 or more cars and accessed from the main road. Within the west facing gable is an access hatch to a service area and storage space. To the east side of the property is a large shed/workshop with a further small shed to the rear. The boundary of Kilmory Cottage is marked by a mix of wire fencing and mature shrubs.
