Kilmun Farmhouse has stunning views over Loch Awe

Standout feature is the attached barn

Kilmun Farmhouse is a charming four-bedroom detached house on the outskirts of Dalavich village with far-reaching views over Loch Awe.

Presented by Bell Ingram at offers over £395,000, Kilmun has been successfully operating as a holiday home providing a significant secondary income, but is equally well suited as a family home.

Loch Awe is one of Scotland’s largest and most picturesque freshwater lochs. Its wooded shores and scattered small islands attract numerous visitors to the area, which is renowned for its salmon and trout fishing.

Andrew Fuller from Bell Ingram said: “This is an exceptional property in an excellent location which is likely to appeal to buyers looking for either a family home or an exciting business opportunity. Properties of this versatility rarely come up for sale in this area so we expect a great deal of interest.”

It’s the tasteful blend of 18th century heritage with contemporary style which makes this traditional stone property (which dates back to the mid-1700s) so unique.

The stand-out feature is the attached byre which has been converted into a magnificent 40ft long combined living space, with a spacious kitchen, dining area and open plan lounge. The room has a feature wood burning stove, providing warmth and comfort in equal measure.

Two sets of French doors lead out to an elevated decking area, providing more space to relax and unwind.

The remainder of the ground floor comprises of two large double bedrooms – each with glazed doors opening to the outside area – a large family bathroom, well equipped utility room also housing the heating boiler and a sizable larder room.

A winding staircase leads upstairs to a central landing, flooded with natural light by the addition of a Velux style window, then on to a sizable family bathroom.

Two further double bedrooms complete the accommodation, each with views to the front of the property.

Externally, Kilmun Farmhouse is accessed via a sweeping drive which opens into convenient parking at the front of the house.

An impressive area of lawn is home to several young fruit trees and offers a place to sit and admire the stunning scenery.

The grounds extend around the property, with a substantial shed providing tool storage. Additional workshop and wood storage is to be found attached at the end of the property.

Andrew Fuller added: “Kilmun is well suited as a family home, but more recently has been operated successfully as a holiday home providing significant secondary income. The accommodation is designed to house up to eight guests in total comfort and its location offers the perfect base for those looking to enjoy an active outdoor life.”

The surrounding area is home to many forest walks and cycle routes, mostly maintained by the Forestry Commission. The Dalavich Oakwood Trail is amongst the many nature trails, where red squirrel, pine marten, woodpeckers and many other woodland inhabitants may be seen.

Dalavich, about a mile away, supports a small shop with a cafe and post office and a licensed social club with a restaurant.

Kilchrenan, approximately seven miles away, is a small West Highland village close to the shores of Loch Awe. The village supports several prestigious hotels, a village hall, a gastro pub and a well-respected primary school. Secondary education is available in Oban.

Further services can be found at Taynuilt approximately eight miles to the north. Taynuilt has a number of traditional stores including a butcher, grocer and a sub-post office. It has a modern doctor’s surgery, police station, two churches, a hotel and a tea-room.
