Full description

Nestled directly on the shores of the West coast of Scotland; amidst panoramic, breathtaking countryside, this picturesque croft house and croft tenancy represent a unique, life changing opportunity . Ideal for those seeking a rural lifestyle within an established crofting community with good local amenities; or equally as a tranquil holiday home retreat.

Situated in the township of Mellon Charles, close to Aultbea and Loch Ewe, this property boasts double glazing throughout, electric heating, 2 reception rooms, spacious kitchen, large garden and three double bedrooms of generous proportions. In need of some modernisation, there is plenty of scope here to easily upgrade or extend.

The accommodation comprises: a large entrance hallway/vestibule leading to the main rooms. The Lounge, with front facing aspect, fireplace and good proportions, leads on to the Dining room, with sea views to the side and a good deal of space. On then to the kitchen, which has great potential, having currently kitchen, dining and utility areas all within one workable space, plus triple aspect windows and back door access.

From the hallway, Bedroom 1 is front facing and has a sink and window to the front. Bedroom 2 has rear aspects , Bedroom 3 is adjacent and similar size. The hallways between room are spacious and a good prospect when undertaking any future alterations. The bathroom is bright and airy, with w/c, w/basin, bath, overbath shower and heated rail. The loft is part floored, well insulated and is accessed from a hatch in the hall ceiling. Decorated throughout in pleasing hues, it is afforded a great deal of natural light.

Outside is a driveway with space for several cars, and the garden wraps right around the house and is enclosed by walls and fencing. Laid mainly to lawn, with floral beds, well established shrubs and paved areas closer to the house, this is a pretty and well maintained garden.

Aultbea has a primary school, medical centre, bespoke shops and regular bus service. Secondary education is in Gairloch, 12 miles away. Outdoor pursuits such as walking, bird watching, shooting, fishing, sailing and cycling are prolific here, and Inverness, the Highland capital, is 79 miles away with excellent road, rail and air links.

The croft house and garden ground is held on a title deed but has not yet been decrofted. As the only dwellinghouse on the croft, it is believed that a decrofting application will be considered favourable by the Crofting Commission in this regard. The croft land is held on a croft tenancy. The successful purchaser will obtain a title to the croft house and garden ground and an assignation of the tenancy to the croft land. Please note, the assignation of the croft tenancy will be subject to the approval of the Crofting Commission.
