Full Description


Dalnaheish is a wonderful, 6 BEDROOM, DETACHED, period property set high above Carsaig Bay on the West Coast of Argyll. The property is in need of refurbishment and modernisation throughout however the potential for development is fantastic. This substantial family home was built in the late 1800’s/early 1900’s and measures an impressive 320 square metres internally.  

Accommodation comprises entrance vestibule leading to the main hallway, very large primary reception room to the west with a grand fireplace and windows to the rear, gable end and front. The front of this reception room also has patio door access to the enclosed veranda at the front, looking over the front gardens towards Carsaig Bay. A second reception room is accessed on the opposite side of the hallway and this, although smaller than the primary room is still a substantial space with a bay window to the front, overlooking the gardens, and a second window on the side wall. This room also benefits from an open fire and period fireplace. To the rear of the second reception room lies a small hall allowing access to the scullery, main kitchen and utility rooms. There is a shower room and a large store room off the utility. The rear hallway, leading to the back door also allows access to a second large storage cupboard and the sixth bedroom (Fireplace and windows on 2 aspects). Upstairs you will find 2 defined areas. The first accessed by 3 steps just before the main landing contains the master bedroom (5.55m x 5.00m) and the family bathroom. The master bedroom benefits from a lot of natural light through 2 very large windows to the West and a smaller one to the East. There is an ornate brick fireplace on the North gable. Off the main landing you will find the further 4 large double bedrooms, each with a fireplace and varying views of the surrounding garden grounds and beyond. There is a large storage cupboard/art studio between the front=most of the bedrooms. This property represents a fantastic opportunity to own what could be a truly breath-taking property in a stunning location. Initial contact should be made with our team in Lochgilphead for further information, the Home Report and to arrange a suitable time to visit Dalnaheish.

The garden grounds at Dalnaheish lie to the South, West and North of the property with the boundary on the East being formed by the access road to the neighbouring property, adjacent to the building itself. The grounds extend to approximately one-and-a-half acres and are made up of lawn, wooded hillside and smaller defined planting areas. There is a large stone built outbuilding to the rear of the garden which is divided and shared with the neighbouring house. Next to this there is currently a poly tunnel and evidence of previous raised vegetable patches. To the front of the property there is a brick built double garage, attached to the main house and accessed through double wooden doors. There is a gate and drive-way, however this has become overgrown in recent years. The large lawn area to the front of the house would require a modicum of TLC but is not overgrown to the same extent as the side of the property. The access to the rear of the main house is via a gateway constructed of stone in, what appears at least, to have been a walled garden at some point in the history of Dalnaheish. On the high ground to the west of the house, arrived at by following some grass paths, there is a bench which allows the most wonderful views out across the edge of Carsaig Bay and to Jura beyond. A magical spot to while away a summers evening and watch the world go by in tranquillity.
