Set in a tranquil location on the picturesque Isle of Coll, Mill Cottage offers buyers an opportunity to acquire a traditional island cottage, with separate two bedroom annexe. The cottage and annexe sits within a land area of 5.93 acres (2.40 hectares) which is sufficient in area to support several horses and/or a small farming enterprise. There is opportunity to develop the property and land to provide holiday accommodation and/or Bed and Breakfast subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent. The property also has a sizable stone workshop ideal for conversion for those looking to set up a small business with power supplied from the main house.
The property is traditionally accessed from the front elevation, with a hallway giving further access to the large family kitchen and living room. This glorious space offers a place for family and friends to relax and socialise, but given its size, could easily be adapted for bed and breakfast use.
A cosy lounge is located centrally within the property, itself giving access through to the central hallway. A ground floor bedroom offers accommodation for those with mobility difficulties, with a shower room and WC also conveniently located within the entrance porch to the front of the property.
A wooden staircase leads from the central hallway to the upper floor where two double bedrooms offer further accommodation. The larger of the two bedrooms features a walk-in closet or store, and both bedrooms offer far reaching views from the front facing windows.
Attached to the main property, the annexe offers comfortable, private guest accommodation, with a layout consisting of kitchen with lounge, two double bedrooms and a shower room with WC.
Mill cottage sits peacefully within a land area of approximately 5.93 acres. A private driveway leads from the road to provide parking adjacent to the main house. A gated garden is located to the front, mainly laid to lawn, with a pathway extending along the front of the house.
A rocky outcrop is located to the rear of the house, offering wonderful views across the open countryside to the island of Mull and beyond. The land extends to the north, providing a mixture of grazing land with further rocky outcrops.
A sizable stone workshop sits within the grounds, ideal for those looking to create a hub for crafting or hobbies, but also offering potential for conversion to a home office or playroom.
