ALLTAN

4 COASTGUARD COTTAGES

KILCHOMAN

ISLE OF ISLAY




Alltan is one of a group of four former HM Coastguard properties at Kilchoman on the west coast of the Rhinns of Islay. The property enjoys spectacular westerly views over the dunes of Machair Bay to the Atlantic Ocean. It is a DETACHED HOUSE originally built as the Coastguard Station Officer's home in the early 1950s and it sits adjacent to the terrace which comprises three other former Coastguard houses. The whitewashed house faces west and lies between the terrace of former coastguard houses to the north and a more modern detached property immediately to the south. After Coastguard use ceased, the four Coastguard cottages were acquired by Argyll County Council. The former owner subsequently bought the house, as sitting tenant, from the Local Authority in 1992.



Internally, the house is comfortable and well appointed. Electric storage heaters are provided throughout. Windows, patio doors and all external doors are double-glazed. Stone floors are provided throughout the ground floor and all floor coverings and blinds in the house will be included in the sale.

PROPOSED EXTENSIONS



Planning Permission and Building Warrant have been obtained by the present owner for the formation of single storey extensions to front and rear, to accommodate new sunroom, kitchen, shower room, utility room and porch. These consents, with plans relative to the Planning Consent, can be examined online on the Argyll & Bute Council website, under references 17/02204/PP (Planning Permission) and 17/01614/DOM3 (Building Warrant). Alternatively, the selling agents will provide copies by email upon request. The present owners have for personal reasons decided against undertaking the proposed alterations, but the proposals give prospective purchasers an opportunity to extend and enhance the property. The current dampness issues highlighted in the Home Report should be addressed as part of the proposed alterations which would include insulation of external walls with a thermal laminate to reduce risk of interstitial condensation. Additionally, the existing kitchen and porch extensions would be demolished to make way for the proposed new insulated timber kit extension. The private water supply at the property has not recently been tested and purchasers may anticipate having to install appropriate filtration and treatment. The property is of course being marketed as it presently stands, in current condition which is reflected in the Home Report valuation.



EXTERNAL



A good sized, long rear garden is included, with direct vehicle entry, to a large gravelled parking area, from the public road leading towards Kilchoman Church. A pathway at the side of the garden leads to the main doors which are both at the back of the house. The rear garden area includes a large grassed drying area. A substantial wooden shed (3.6m x 3.0m), with fluorescent lighting and electric sockets is included. To the front, the garden is smaller, mainly in grass, but is delightfully secluded.



SERVICES



Direct access from public road.

Private shared Kilchoman water supply.

Private drainage to shared septic tank for the four former coastguard houses.

Mains electricity.
