FREEPORT

PORT ASKAIG

ISLE OF ISLAY




Freeport is a unique, modern, DETACHED HOUSE just two minutes walk from the main ferry terminal at Port Askaig, yet hidden around a small promontory in a secluded, tranquil spot  at the water’s edge.  Despite being just over 100 metres away from the bustle of activity at the ferry terminal,  the property nevertheless enjoys an idyllic position, with peacefulness enhanced by the sound of waves lapping against the shore and the occasional passing seabird.  The property enjoys a direct east facing outlook over the Sound of Islay to Jura.  It is ideally placed for ferry transport links to both the mainland and Jura.  Unusually, there is no vehicle access to the property.  Public parking is of course available at the ferry terminal.



The present house was built in 2001, on the original footprint of a one-bedroomed traditional fisherman’s cottage.  Some of the original walls and foundations have been retained.  Though modern, Freeport has been built in traditional style with deep windows, roughcast and whitewashed external walls with black painted trims and pitched highland slate roof.  All windows are double glazed.  

Internally, space heating is provided by a mix of electric storage and panel heaters.  All fitted carpets and floor coverings will be included.  Otherwise, the property is available for sale with or without furnishings on the basis that furnishings are available for separate sale.
