Property description

Tenure: Freehold



Quietly situated in the charming township of Balephetrish on the island of Tiree, the sale of Balephetrish House offers a substantial semi-detached farmhouse, which enjoys stunning, uninterrupted sea views and is ideally located only a two minute walk from the beach. Well maintained by the current owners to create a superb family home, this deceptively spacious property would also be perfectly suited as a bed and breakfast business as previously used and enjoys flexible accommodation arranged over three floors. Benefiting from double glazing and oil fired central heating, many of the rooms enjoy fantastic views whilst the cast-iron surround and living flame fire in the dining lounge is a most attractive feature.

The Isle of Tiree is the most westerly of the Inner Hebrides. Relatively small and very flat with only three small hills and no woodland, the island is approximately 12 miles long by 3 miles wide. Known as the 'Sunshine Isle', Tiree benefits from the warm Gulf Stream and enjoys a mild climate with some of the highest levels of sunshine in the British Isles. Famed for it's beautiful beaches, the island is host to the annual Tiree Wave Classic which attracts some of the worlds best surfers, and the ever-popular Tiree Music Festival, which attracts tourists in abundance. There is both primary and secondary education on the Island, shops including two grocery stores and a doctors' surgery, bank, garage and veterinary surgery. The journey from Oban takes around 3.5 hours by boat, with regular flights available from Glasgow and Connel airports taking approximately one hour.
