ISLE OF ISLAY
High View is a luxuriously appointed 5 bedroom DETACHED HOUSE occupying an elevated position in a pleasing rural location on the Inner Hebridean Island of Islay. It affords excellent wide-ranging views, particularly to the front (west) over Laggan Bay and Loch Indaal to The Oa and The Rhinns. To the rear the view is over sweeping moorland towards Beinn Uraraidh and Beinn Bhan.
The property is situated about three miles north of the ferry port at Port Ellen beside the B8016 High Road between Port Ellen and Bridgend. The drive from the property to the island’s administrative centre of Bowmore takes about ten to fifteen minutes.
The house was built, of timber framed construction with slate roof covering in 2004. Finished to a high standard, the accommodation comprises, on the ground floor, a lounge, open plan dining kitchen, utility room, conservatory, shower-room and three bedrooms (one en-suite), with conservatory to the rear. There are a further two bedrooms (both en-suite) together with the family bathroom on the first floor.
Other benefits include full double glazing and under-floor central heating to the ground floor with radiators upstairs. Generally all floor coverings will be included, as will the Toledo Rangemaster cooker in the kitchen which is operated by calor gas with gas bottles stored externally. All in all, High View is a lovely family home though it could equally be an ideal, easy to maintain, holiday home.
Alterations by the present owners include removal of the original integral garage to create a double bedroom on the ground floor, with large en-suite to the rear. The former kitchen and dining room have been opened up to create large, spacious and bright family accommodation.
