Full Description


Moorburn is an impressive modern DETACHED SINGLE STOREY HOUSE, just off the High Road at Glenegedale, mid-way between Port Ellen and Bowmore.  It is set in a relatively exposed, elevated, rural position at the end of a private roadway.  From that position, expansive views are enjoyed, particularly to the front (west), there being a sweeping outlook over The Laggan and Loch Indaal to the Rhinns.  The house was built in 2008 with two wings which project to the west and which contain the lounge and master bedroom.  The building itself is timber framed (Scot Frame).  It has a rendered and whitewashed block skin and slate roof.   The property is fully double glazed and has oil fired central heating and a coal fireplace in the lounge.  Solid oak or redwood flooring is fitted in all rooms except the third bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and utility room.  

The property has been used, successfully, for holiday letting.  Typically the house currently lets for about 20 weeks per annum at an average weekly rental of £600.00.  In view of the current business use, the house is subject to non-domestic rates for which the present owner has full exemption.
