Full Description


Lying within the picturesque and appealing conservation village of Portnahaven, this is a traditional MID-TERRACED COTTAGE in an elevated position, enjoying direct westerly views over the bay and village.  The property looks out on to McKenzie’s Island and to the Atlantic Ocean beyond.

No. 15 King Street was originally a typical small single storey cottage.  However, upper floor accommodation was added in the 1960s and a rear extension, housing the present kitchen and bathroom, was added in the early 1970s.  Solid fuel central heating is provided throughout the house from the coal fire in the sitting room.  All windows, except the kitchen window, are double glazed.  All carpets, floor coverings, curtains and blinds will be included.  The property fronts on to King Street, which is a private road, and has a terraced garden at the rear which leads up to Crown Street which is the public road.  

The surprisingly spacious accommodation comprises:-


Front Porch: double glazed entry door, leading directly into sitting room.  

Sitting Room: To front, with direct view over harbour and village; varnished wood panelled walls and ceiling with beams; traditional fireplace and hearth, with back boiler behind; under stair cupboard; fitted carpet.

Dining Room: To front, with parquet wood flooring and timber ceiling beams; open stairway to upper floor accommodation.

Rear Hallway: Doorways to sitting room, kitchen and bathroom; storage cupboard off; rear entry door to back garden.

Kitchen: To rear, with a range of floor and wall units and worktops; laminate floor covering; free standing appliances (cooker, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer) will remain on the basis that the purchaser takes these items over in current condition.  

Bathroom: To rear, with bath, WC, wash hand basin and separate large shower compartment; shower served by both domestic hot water system and instant electric unit; tiled floor covering.


Landing: Cupboard housing cold water tank, reserve tank for central heating, and lagged hot water tank; new Velux skylight to rear.  

Bedroom 1: Dormer type window to front; fitted carpet; range of fitted wardrobes with louvre doors along rear wall.

Bedroom 2: To front, with dormer type window; varnished timber flooring; fitted wardrobe.


There is no front garden.  The rear garden is narrow but quite lengthy and is terraced, leading up to Crown Street.  A large garden shed and a separate smaller coal cellar are included.  Beside Crown Street, the property has its own exclusive concreted car parking space, from which a pathway leads down to the rear of the house.  The garden includes a number of natural flowering borders, lawn area, drying area and vegetable plot.
