Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A unique and lovingly restored farmhouse with attached barns overlooking the stunning countryside of Islay between Bridgend and Ballygrant

The current owners bought Aluchga some 30 years ago, and have undertaken extensive renovation of the original farmhouse, lovingly restoring it and extending it to create a unique and characterful family home. The owner’s highly skilled craftsmanship is visible throughout. Attention to detail is exacting with handmade parquet flooring, ash shelving, fitted wardrobes and cabinets of the best quality throughout. The kitchen is a particular example of this craftsmanship with handmade ash units under elm worktops and a curved central island unit. Wherever possible the timber is local and much of it comes from Islay. The property has been restored and extended in a thoughtful and exacting manner, creating a flexible family home with potential to extend and improve further using the attached outbuildings (subject to necessary consents being obtained).

Aluchga is laid out over two floors and comprises the original two storey farmhouse with an attached range of barns, which have over the years been partially incorporated into the main house. On the ground floor are a kitchen, spacious conservatory, sitting room, dining room, study, utility room, master bedroom and bathroom. On the first floor are a further three double bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room. To one side of the house are the former byres which comprise one large principal barn with attached stores and double doors which is currently used as a workshop, together with a second byre, now split into two stores. The property is set in well-tended walled gardens, with a sheltered terrace adjoining the conservatory. There is ample parking to the front and side of the house and views in all directions over surrounding fields.
