This is an extremely well appointed modern DETACHED BUNGALOW which was built in 1996 by Woodrow Construction (Islay) Limited. The property sits within a small completed residential scheme at the edge of Bowmore. It is set in an elevated position, and enjoys an open outlook to the front (north) over agricultural land and Loch Indaal. The property is of timber framed, rendered block construction, with pitched tiled roof. It includes full double glazing and an electric Economy 6 heating system with storage and panel heaters throughout.
Of particular note, a field of approximately 2 acres behind the bank at the rear of the house is included. This offers useful amenity land which has not been maintained in recent years but which could provide potential for, say, running a horse, siting kennels or conducting a market garden. This additional area does not have current development potential, owing to access limitations.
The house accommodation is spacious and flexible. In particular, there could be scope to, very easily, create a self-contained annexe or wing using the rooms on the east side of the property which can be accessed from the rear by an additional external doorway.

The property has its vehicle entry at the end of the Hillside private road, on to a block hard-standing parking area at the rear of the house. This provides direct entry to the integral single garage. The front garden is good sized and secluded, mainly in grass, with a variety of maturing bushes and trees. The rear garden area is also mainly in grass on a steep embankment, with retaining wall at the bottom. Beyond the embankment the property includes the aforementioned two acres of amenity land at the rear.
