Innishail is situated in the Bridge of Awe, a small, rural hamlet on the A85 and the site of the former Bonawe Iron Furnace now a visitor attraction. The property is one of a cluster of houses within easy reach of the main road network and close to the popular village of Taynuilt with shops, post office, primary school, medical practice and 9-hole golf course. Also close by is the famous Inverawe Smokehouse offering a wide range of products. The area is surrounded by a stunning rural landscape with local walks. The very picturesque Airds Bay with its pebble beach is also close by. Also from the property is a footpath leading to the local Spar shop. Beyond Taynuilt to the west is the coastal town of Oban with its choice of shops, cafés and restaurants. There are also primary and secondary schools and a leisure centre. Train services from Taynuilt also link to the town as well as to Glasgow. From Oban’s harbour, regular ferry services operate to the Inner and Outer Isles.
This generously proportioned 5 bedroom semi- detached house was built in the 1970s and has been significantly enhanced by the current owners including with the installation of oil fired central heating and extensive refurbishment. As well as 5 bedrooms, there is a cloakroom, and good size living room opening into the dining area. Beyond this is the contemporary kitchen with floor and wall mounted units, cooking range and space for a breakfast table. The garage has been converted into a large one bedroom annexe with en-suite wet room with under floor heating and kitchenette currently used as a utility room. The annexe is accessed from the kitchen but also has its own entrance via double doors from the garden making it potentially suitable as bed and breakfast accommodation or Airbnb, subject to any planning requirements. On the first floor are 4 further bedrooms and a shower room.
Externally, the property is situated in a good size plot with large garden. This is laid mainly to lawn and extends to the side and rear of the house. To the front of the property is a parking area for 3 cars adjoining which is a further small area of garden. Within the rear garden is a large shed. The boundaries are marked by a mix of fencing and hedging. Innishail is accessed from the main road via a private track, the maintenance of which is shared with the neighbouring properties. From this track, a footpath set back from the road, leads to the local shop a short walk away. There is also a petrol station.
