Spectacular Views On A Picturesque Scottish Isle

A new-to-the-market fine Georgian house is offering the chance for keen buyers to enjoy life in a beautifully secluded location in the heart of the Inner Hebrides.

Garmony House is a substantial period property set on the Isle of Mull, boasting expansive land extending to 1.59 acres and exceptional views over the Sound of Mull, which can only be truly appreciated in person.

The spacious, five-bedroom property was originally a smaller cottage believed to date from the late 16th century, which was significantly enlarged during the Georgian era to create a residence fit for a local gentleman of the Clan Maclean.

The property would make the ideal home for a large or growing family, not only due to its commodious accommodation, but also is extensive, but manageable grounds. However, it has also been flexibly configured and offers potential for the owner to reap the benefits of additional income, as the house could be operated as a charming bed and breakfast, as Mull is a highly popular tourist destination.

It has been finished to a very high standard and, to add to the whole attractive package, retains many of the traditional features of a period house, including high ceilings, open fireplaces and large sash windows with shutters, which take full advantage of the spectacular surrounding views.

Situated in Garmony, a settlement of farms and rural properties on the east coast of Mull, the home is set well back from the public road giving privacy, while also being conveniently located for local amenities and within close proximity of the local ferry terminal. It is currently on the market with Chartered Surveyors, Land and Estate Agents Bell Ingram for offers over £550,000.

Carl Warden, of Bell Ingram, said: “Garmony House, with all of its traditional Georgian features, oozes character and offers easy living in an area which is abundant in rural charm.

“It would be ideal for a homebuyer seeking a spacious and light-filled family home which, if so desired, also offers a not-to-be-missed opportunity for business savvy buyers to benefit from various streams of extra income.

“It also offers the best of both worlds in terms of setting, as its location on the second largest isle of the Inner Herbrides means it is extremely accessible while also boasting high levels of seclusion in a truly stunning location.”

The property is laid out over two floors and comprises a large drawing room and dining room on the ground floor at the front, as well as a kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and two cloakrooms to the side and the rear. On the upper floor, there are five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a study.

Outdoor enthusiasts will not be disappointed, as the Isle of Mull boasts extraordinary and diverse scenery, including the dramatic Gribun cliffs and white sands of Calgary Bay. In addition, a multitude of sea lochs give Mull over 500km of coastline which can be explored by kayak, yacht and diving, or on land by foot or mountain bike.

The striking landscape has a strong lure for artists of every discipline and the island also hosts a number of music and arts festivals throughout the year.
