This delightful and deceptively spacious, architect designed 3 bedroom cottage, is situated in the pretty conservation village of Toberonochy on the east coast of Luing. The extended, semi detached B listed property, created from two cottages, offers good size ground floor accommodation with additional space in the converted attic extending the full width of the property. 34 Toberonochy is one of a cluster of former slate worker’s cottages dating from the 1800s when slate was quarried extensively on the island.
Luing enjoys a unique position within the Inner Hebrides, situated a short distance from the mainland and one of the most accessible islands. It is also home to a thriving community. Local services include a licensed shop, post office, village halls, café, heritage centre and church. The island is a haven for wildlife and known for its famous breed of cattle. Luing offers a range of outdoor pursuits, including walking, cycling, sailing, kayaking and fishing. Close to the cottage is a small and very picturesque harbour offering safe anchorage making it popular for boating enthusiasts. On the neighbouring island of Seil is a primary school, medical practice and 9-hole golf course and in Oban a wide range of shops, restaurants, schools, leisure facilities and professional services. The town is linked via rail to Glasgow and ferry services operate from its harbour to the Inner and Outer Isles. To the north at Connel, the local airport operates regular services to the Western Isles with plans to connect to Glasgow in future.
34 Toberonochy is situated in the heart of the village with direct access from the road. The cottage is of slate construction under a slate roof. 34 Toberonochy has been designed for comfortable, contemporary living without compromising the character of the original property. The cottage, which is equally suited for permanent or holiday use includes a good size living area with wood burning stove extending into the impressive, bespoke dining kitchen with pitched ceiling and double doors opening into the pretty garden. As well as two double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower, there is a single bedroom/study and separate bathroom. From the hall, steep stairs give access to the converted attic space (restricted headroom) currently used as an office but equally suited as a play area, for storage or occasional additional accommodation.
To the rear of the property is a very pretty, low maintenance garden over different levels with steps leading up to raised beds and a small shed. The garden offers a choice of seating areas including a deck accessed from the dining kitchen. To the south side of the house is a further large area of ground acquired by the current owners and encompassing a gravelled parking area to the front and large lawn to the rear.
