Overview: - Sheepknowe House - A substantial detached granite house positioned in a private location within walking distance of the village of Bunessan, on the beautiful Ross of Mull. Built in 1870, the property is full of character and has been lovingly maintained by its current owners. The ground floor accommodation in the front part of the house comprises of a front porch, spacious central hallway, shower room, large dining room, large sitting room - and conservatory with patio doors, which open onto a terrace and front lawn. To the rear there is a large kitchen diner, utility room and sunny rear porch/boot room. Upstairs the main staircase leads to two large bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms. The landing leads to a family bathroom. On the first floor at the rear of the house, accessed via a separate stairwell, there are two further bedrooms, one of which is used as a study. The property is well proportioned with bright and spacious reception room and the kitchen benefits from dual aspect windows, which bathe the room in light in both morning and evening. The en-suite bedrooms enjoy views out over the large garden, and towards Bunessan, and Loch Na Lathaich. The property benefits from double glazing throughout, and an oil boiler provides heating for the radiators. The layout lends itself to using the front of house for possible B&B, whilst using the rear of the house as self-contained owners accommodation. This property retains many of it's original features and would make an excellent family home, holiday home or possible small B&B. Viewing is highly advised to appreciate Sheepknowe House with it's versatility, position and size.

The parking is in front of the large detached garage at the rear of the property. The house is surrounded by a gravel and paved path and the area at the rear is concreted, bordered by raised flower beds and makes an excellent sheltered sun trap in summer.

The large lawn is entirely fenced and makes a fantastic place for outdoor games and activities.

Location: - The house is located in a quiet and private position within approximately 1 acre, only a short walk from the village of Bunessan.
