Located approximately 11 miles from the village of Lochaline, this stunning, contemporary version of a Scottish longhouse is situated in an elevated position with far reaching westerly views across the
sound of Mull. Upper Mungosdail enjoys a very tranquil setting, surrounded by the natural habitat of the Morvern Peninsula. The area is known for its unspoilt scenery and varied wildlife including sea eagles, pine martens, otters and deer and is popular for walking, boating and fishing. The village of Drimnin, a short distance away, offers direct access to the sea and is the location of the new Nc’Nean Distillery. Other local services at Lochaline include a post office, licensed shop, medical centre, primary school and the award winning White House seafood restaurant. It is also the ferry terminal for services to Tobermory on the Island of Mull a short
distance away. Further services can be found at Fort William to the north including shops, hospital, schools, leisure centre and train station. Situated to the west of Upper Mungosdail is the smaller Lower Mungosdail, which is also being offered for sale.

DESCRIPTION
Upper Mungosdail is a delightful 3 bedroom family home, ideally suited for permanent or holiday use. The architect designed property, which dates from 2010, is of timber frame construction with Siberian larch clad walls under a slate roof. The property, which is being offered for sale for the first time, has been well maintained by the current owners and provides spacious accommodation over 1.5 floors. The stylish, coastal interior includes a large open-plan living and dining area with rotating wood burning stove opening into the spacious kitchen. The property benefits from two ground floor bedrooms, en-suite and shower room. There is also a large boot room and adjoining boat house. On the first floor is a stunning galleried landing with library or study area, a further bedroom and en-suite bathroom. The property has been designed for maximum energy efficiency with high quality Scandinavian Velfac doors and windows, solar
PV panels and electric under floor heating to a number of rooms which can be controlled remotely. Other services include a private mains-treated water supply shared with Lower Mungosdail and
drainage via a private soakaway.

GARDEN
A large, low maintenance garden surrounds the property and includes a good size deck to the front from which to enjoy the far reaching views and secluded patio to the rear, both of which can
be accessed directly from the house. The house is approached via a covered walkway to the rear adjoining which is a gravelled parking area for several cars. To the north of the property is a large
boat house with sink and power. The boat house, which offers scope for use as additional accommodation, can be accessed from the covered walkway and via large double doors. The area offers
ample space for a small boat, canoes, bikes and garden equipment. A wire and stob fence surrounds the house although the actual site boundary extends someway beyond it. The house is situated off a
shared private track which also gives access to Lower Mungosdail to the west and a neighbouring property to the south.
