Full description

Tenure: Freehold

9 Leven Terrace is located in the picturesque highland village of Ballachulish. On the shores of Loch Linnhe and Loch Leven, the village sits amidst dramatic scenery and below towering mountains at the foot of the impressive Pap of Glencoe. The village was originally famous for its slate mining, and an exhibition within the village depicts the way of life during that era.

Nowadays, Ballachulish is more famous for tourism and is a perfect base for those wishing to enjoy outdoor pursuits. As well as the usual village amenities such as a Post Office, village shop, village hall, pub and two renowned hotels, there are outdoor activities to suit every taste. The area can offer walking and running trails, climbing, skiing, boat trips, fishing, golf, horse riding, as well as castles, museums and distilleries in the nearby vicinity. There is a small and well respected primary school, while secondary education is undertaken at Kinlochleven Secondary School, approximately 7 miles away.

The village of Kinlochleven is on the famous West Highland Way, the long distance walking route from Milngavie to Fort William. New industries and tourist attractions such as the Ice Factor (an indoor ice and rock climbing centre) and the Atlas Brewery which serves a good range of cask-conditioned beers are proving increasingly popular with visitors to the area.

Ballachulish sits approximately 33 miles north of Oban, and 15 miles south of Fort William. Both towns offer an excellent range of facilities and good travel links to the rest of the UK.

Travelling from the south, take the A828 Oban to Fort William road and continue for approximately 30 miles passing through the villages of Appin, Duror and Kentallen. At the roundabout turn left onto the A82 and travel for 2 miles turning right into Ballachulish village where sign posted. Immediately turn right and follow the road around through the village. The property is situated on the left hand side of the road opposite the car park. It is clearly marked and the entrance door is to the side.

9 Leven Terrace is a very well presented ground floor flat which sits in a block of four similar apartments. The property is in good decorative order and benefits from double glazing and oil fired central heating.

Entering the property via the vestibule, there is a hallway with access doors to all the accommodation. There is a built-in shelved storage cupboard and space for a tumble dryer.

Each of the bedrooms are warm and snug with double glazed windows, neutral décor and fitted carpets.
