Property description

Tenure: Freehold


An impressive detached villa enjoying superb elevated views over Loch Eil, set in mature, generous garden grounds with detached garage. Full Planning Permission has been reapplied for, to create a fantastic double garage with ancillary or holiday accommodation above, providing an exciting business opportunity for the successful purchaser.

In excellent order throughout, this superior property offers spacious and flexible accommodation over two levels. The addition of the first-class, bespoke 'Mozolowski & Murray' Garden Room, embracing one side, is a most attractive feature.

Property Description

Peacefully situated in generous private grounds and with stunning views over Loch Eil to the surrounding countryside, the sale of Tarmachan offers a fantastic opportunity to purchase a  superior detached villa with detached garage in the desirable, semi-rural area of Kinlocheil. The setting is further complemented by the property itself, which was designed to take full advantage of its position and offers deceptively spacious accommodation in a convenient layout. In excellent order and benefiting from double glazing, oil fired central heating and an impressive open fire with cast iron surround in the lounge, the bespoke 'Mozolowski & Murray' garden room, with windows to three sides and views to the loch, is an outstanding addition and offers a superb entertaining and living area. Details of Planning Permission in the grounds for a new detached double garage with ancillary or holiday accommodation above can be found on page 5.

The property would be ideally suited to a number of uses including a superb family home, idyllic holiday retreat or as an exciting opportunity as a self-catering property in an extremely buoyant holiday letting market. The accommodation comprises - a welcoming entrance hallway, lounge with open fire, reading area, breath-taking garden room, kitchen, utility, cloakroom and master bedroom with en-suite shower room all on the ground floor. On the upper level, a further three double bedrooms and family bathroom feature.


A gravelled driveway leads to the front and side of the property and to the detached garage, providing ample parking. Around one-and-a-half acres, the garden has been gently landscaped and features a natural lawn, offset with a variety of mature trees, shrubs, bushes and seasonal planting. A well established pond features to the front of the property whilst two charming miniature waterfalls are located to the rear of the  garden room.


The position of Tarmachan evokes a real rural feeling generally attributed to very remote locations, yet the property is only 7 miles from the village of Corpach which offers a range of local amenities whilst Fort William is some 11 miles distant. The area is now recognised as the 'Outdoor Capital of the UK' and benefits from year round visitors taking advantage of the excellent outdoor pursuits available throughout the year including walking, mountaineering, ski-ing, sailing, fishing, golf and sight seeing. The property is also located only 1.3 miles from Locheilside railway station and 5.6 miles from Glenfinnan railway station, both on the 'West Highland Line' which links Fort William to Mallaig.


Tarmachan previously benefited from full planning permission to demolish the existing detached garage and rebuild a new double detached garage with fantastic ancillary or holiday two-bedroom living accommodation above, with elevated decking towards the views (further details can be found on The Highland Council Planning website with the reference 15/02546/FUL or with the selling agents).

As the previous planning permission had lapsed, updated planning permission has already been reapplied for by our client and is expected to be granted in the coming weeks.
