A beautifully presented home on the unspoiled Inner Hebridean Isle of Lismore is on the market with Bell Ingram for offers over £275,000.
Unlike its popular neighbour, Mull, the Isle of Lismore is off the beaten track and with only 170 inhabitants across 10 miles, the island is ideal for buyers in search of the quiet life.
With far reaching views across the island throughout the detached two-bedroom property and surrounded by mature gardens offering ample outdoor space, Tirlaggan West is the perfect retirement or second home.
Speaking on behalf of Bell Ingram Oban, Laura MacCallum says: “As staycations continue to be the holiday of choice in the UK, we are seeing increasing interest from buyers from the South of England looking for second homes on Scotland’s West Coast and islands.
“With Lismore one of Scotland’s hidden gems which remains relatively untouched by Scotland’s booming tourism industry, and only five minutes-drive from the main ferry terminal with regular crossings to Oban, Tirlaggan West offers the perfect opportunity for those looking for a second home on Scotland’s islands and we anticipate huge interest from this market.”
The property is accessed from the front, with a sheltered entrance leading into a central hallway, before opening up to a stylish kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke combination of white floor and wall units, perfectly complimented by a contrasting worktop with double bowl sink and drainer.
The open plan design flows through to a family lounge which has a bright and airy feel thanks to triple aspect windows. Much thought has been given to the property design, with open oak beams giving a real sense of character, while French doors further enhance the layout, offering open views to the side gardens.
A double bedroom is situated to the rear of the property, with wooden flooring and neutral décor complimenting the wonderful views out across the open countryside. The ground floor layout is completed by family bathroom and sizable utility room, located to the rear of the house.
A wooden staircase leads from the dining area to the upper floor where the open plan theme continues, with a large living area giving flexibility for entertaining, crafting or possible conversion to create an extra room, such as a third bedroom. The pitched ceiling design and open beams ,combined with Velux windows gives a wonderful sense of space.
The central landing links to a stylish family bathroom with electric underfloor heating and further, to the master bedroom.
The property is accessed from the single-track island road with a gated entrance leading into a private driveway. The surrounding garden includes lawn, mature shrubbery and rockery. There is also an area of fertile raised vegetable beds and polytunnel, fruit bushes.
To the rear, an area of decking benefits from a quirky roof design that incorporates skylight windows, creating a sheltered place to sits and enjoy the wonderful landscape views.
