ISLE OF ISLAY
Strathmore is a one and a half storey DETACHED VILLA, at the edge of Port Ellen on the upper side of the road towards Bowmore, enjoying a commanding view over Kilnaughton Bay. The house is understood to have been built in the late 1960s and has roughcast outer walls with Fyfe Stone features at the front and a pitched tiled roof. Porches were added to the front and rear of the property shortly after its original construction.
Everest double glazing has been installed throughout, excepting the north facing ground floor bedroom, the rear porch, and the porthole window in the lounge. An oil fired central heating system is installed, with radiators throughout, except in the two upper floor bedrooms. The boiler was replaced in 2015 and a new oil storage tank was provided in 2016. Carpets are fitted throughout, except in the kitchen which has a vinyl floor covering. Generally, all carpets, other floor coverings, blinds and curtains will be included.
