Sealladh Mor enjoys an exceptional position in the popular Mealdarroch area on the edge of the delightful fishing village of Tarbert at the head of the Kintyre Peninsula. The property is a mix of rendered and stone walls under a tiled roof. Situated at the top of a private track, the property enjoys stunning panoramic views across Loch Fyne to the Kyles of Bute and south towards the Isle of Arran. As well as a lovely garden which surrounds the property, there are a little over 6 acres of mature grounds providing total privacy and seclusion.
The property is situated a short distance from the village centre which offers a range of services including cafés shops, and restaurants and is known for its annual seafood festival. Local schools include the Tarbert Academy for 3-18 year olds. Tarbert is also the location for the Scottish Series Sailing Regatta. The large marina is situated in the heart of the village and is within easy sailing distance of the Clyde. The Crinan Canal is also close by. The marina provides a range of facilities including pontoons suitable for leisure boats. The Tarbert ferry terminal runs regular services to Portavadie on the Cowal Peninsula in the summer and Lochranza on the Isle of Arran in the winter. The Kintryre Peninsula is known for its stunning, unspoilt scenery and extensive wildlife, much of which can be enjoyed in the grounds that surround Sealladh Mor.
The property is conveniently located within easy reach of the main road network. To the south is Campbeltown with its range of shops and leisure centre. To the north is Lochgilphead with artisan shops, leisure centre and choice of professional services. Further north is the historic town of Inveraray. The coastal town of Oban provides regular ferry sailings to the Inner and Outer Isles and the town’s train station operates daily services to Glasgow.
Sealladh Mor is a striking, 1.5 storey architect designed, 4 bedroom property ideally suited for permanent use or as an idyllic coastal hideaway. Built in 1976, the property is in excellent condition throughout and includes many delightful features such as large exposed beams, deep galleried landing and stylish open plan living dining area. The property has been designed to make the most of the exceptional outlook and includes a stunning south facing cathedral window in the living area offering uninterrupted views towards Arran. This lovely room has a wood burning stove and from here, sliding doors to the front and rear of the house open onto the delightful garden. The living area leads into the dining space again enjoying the same stunning views. Both areas link with the generous dining kitchen. Also on the ground floor are two double bedrooms and a shower room.
Stairs from the ground floor lead up to the stunning galleried landing above the living area which is ideal as a reading space, study, play area or as additional accommodation. This large space enjoys the same wonderful south facing views. From here, a door opens into a bedroom or dressing area which in turn leads to the main bedroom, a charming, spacious room with pitched beamed ceiling and treble aspect windows to maximise the views. Also on this floor is a bathroom.
GARDEN AND GROUNDS
Externally Sealladh Mor is surrounded by a very pretty garden with an array of plants, shrubs, trees and lawns to the front and rear. To the front of the house, the boundary extends to the far side of the access road and from the rear it is possible to enjoy the striking, panoramic views. The grounds which extend to all sides of the garden are a haven for wildlife which enjoy the tranquil setting. A path gives access around the property and to the front steps lead to the main entrance from the drive. From the south gable end is a patio from which to enjoy the panoramic views. Also within the grounds is a double stone-built garage recently re-roofed by the current owners. A mix of attractive drystone walls and hedging mark the boundaries.
The property is accessed via a pretty, private drive which winds up towards the house and is marked at the edges by moss covered stones. As well as the double garage there is further parking to the front of the property.
