Situation
Hill View presents an excellent opportunity to acquire a property on the Island of Tiree, the most westerly of the Inner Hebrides. The property is situated in a pleasant location at Balephetrish, a small settlement on the north side of the island and close to the main island village of Scarinish.

The Isle of Tiree
The property is within easy distance of the ferry terminal and local amenities. As well as the primary school, the island supports a six-year secondary school, shops, garages, bank, post office, doctor, vet and other everyday requirements. The Co-Operative store at the village of Scarinish also has a wide selection of groceries, fruit and vegetables and wines. There are builders and other tradesmen on the island, a business centre and a local newspaper.

The island of Tiree is the most westerly of the Inner Hebrides and is approximately 13 miles long and three and a half miles wide. It is famous for its many stretches of long, white sandy beaches and the flat grassy land (the machair) behind the sand dunes which, in the spring and summer months, form a carpet of wild flowers. The traditional low-intensity farming methods on the island and the enriching effects of wind-blown sand also sustain a wide variety of insects and birds, including the rare corncrake.

In recent years Tiree has also become well known for its excellent windsurfing and has an annual ‘Wave Classic’ event when people from far and wide visit to join in the activities and, as well as enjoying the windsurfing, to see local artwork by visiting the craft shops and galleries.

The island is served by a daily (except Sunday) flight from Glasgow and a regular car ferry service from Oban. The ferry journey from Oban to Tiree takes approximately 3 hours and 45 minutes.

Directions
From the ferry, take the B8065 and then continue forward onto the B8068 until reaching the settlement of Balephetrish. The property is on the left hand side of the road and is marked by a plaque bearing its name on the gatepost.

Description
Hill View is a sizeable, two storey detached former farmhouse constructed in the original Scottish Vernacular with a harled exterior and a tiled roof. Built in the early 1900’s, the property has been modernised and upgraded throughout (including a new roof and rewiring) and has spacious, well laid out accommodation over two floors, making it an ideal permanent home, second home or holiday let.

Originally a croft, the property has now been de-crofted and planning permission has been sought to turn the garage and 2 outhouses into a 1 bedroom chalet.

The property is entered via a hallway which has doors to the ground floor accommodation and a carpeted staircase to the first floor. There is a spacious under-stair storage cupboard.

On the ground floor, the lounge is a bright and airy room with dual aspect windows to the front and side and a door to the kitchen. There is a tiled fire surround, mantel and hearth in which sits an open fire. The room is decorated in neutrals and has natural wood finishes.

The kitchen has a range of fitted floor and wall units and two windows which offer sunny, panoramic views to the south west. There is a stainless steel sink unit and space for a cooker, fridge, and washing machine. A door leads to a lean-to store to the side of the property.

The ground floor bedroom is spacious with ample room for a double bed. There is a tiled fireplace in which sits an open fire. The room has dual aspect windows to the front and side.

A ground floor shower room provides additional amenity and has a two-piece suite in white with a fully tiled standalone shower cabinet with an electric shower.

Upstairs there are two further bedrooms. Bedroom 2 has views to the front and side, whilst bedroom 3 faces to the front and has a television and telephone point.

Completing the accommodation is a bathroom with a coloured 3-piece bathroom suite and a window to the front. In addition there is a boxroom with a built-in airing cupboard and slatted shelves.

Outside, the property sits in grounds extending to approximately 0.21 acres (0.089ha). There is a private track and a parking area. The front garden has a wall around it whilst the rear has a fine, open outlook to the south west. The garden is mainly laid to grass and very easily maintained. The car port and store already have planning permission in place (Ref No. 11/00038/PP) for conversion into a one bedroom chalet.
