LAGMORE HOUSE

1 QUEEN STREET

PORTNAHAVEN

ISLE OF ISLAY




Lagmore House is an outstanding DETACHED traditional property within the picturesque and delightful conservation village of Portnahaven. It is the last house at the far end of Queen Street, its position and grounds being indicated outlined red on the appended title plan. From that position, at the shore's edge, it enjoys marvellous uninterrupted southerly sea views to both Mackenzie Island and Orsay Island and its lighthouse. The power of the sea crashing between the two islands is particularly impressive and, in more peaceful moments, seals are to be seen relaxing on the shore of Mackenzie Island, approximately 200m from the front of the house.



Lagmore House provides spacious, bright and inviting accommodation, a particular feature being panelled timber walls and doors in most rooms. With three public rooms, dining kitchen and five bedrooms, it provides ideal accommodation for up to 9 residents. While the property could readily be a super permanent family home, it currently successfully operates as a holiday rental, providing good returns and income for the owner. Typically, the house lets for approximately 26 weeks per annum at a rental averaging 895 per week.



Electric storage or panel heaters are provided throughout the house, with space heating supplemented by a wood-burning stove in the lounge. Heating in the west wing of the house is controlled by electric thermostat. The house is fully double glazed. Generally, all carpets, other floor coverings, curtains and blinds will be included, as will the free-standing kitchen appliances. Furnishings will be available for separate sale.
