Award-winning 5-star boutique guest house for sale on the stunning Kintyre Peninsula
Carradales, the multi award-winning boutique guest house on the Kintyre Peninsula, is being presented for sale by Bell Ingram at offers over £625,000.
Built in 1892 for the minister of the new Free Church of Scotland by renowned architect H.E. Clifford of Glasgow, Carradales had been under the stewardship of Maurice Whelan and Steve Reed during which time it has received numerous awards, including the prestigious five-star award from the Scottish Tourist Board.
Situated within the picturesque Argyll village of Carradale, the Victorian property has been recently refurbished to an impeccably high standard and offers luxurious accommodation over two levels.
Commenting on the sale, Andrew Fuller from Bell Ingram’s Oban office, says: “It is a very special property and certainly not one we would see come onto the market very often.
“It is currently operated as a successful guest house, however given its popular location, would equally be suited to a family home or holiday let property. Interest is likely to be high, and early viewing is highly recommended.”
The property is entered from the front, with a welcoming porch leading through to the central hall. To the left, the sitting room offers a comfortable place to relax, with a feature bay window perfectly framing the wonderful open views over the surrounding countryside. The room is warmed through by an open grate fire which is set within a heavy cast fire surround.
Adjacent to the sitting room, the formal dining room also enjoys views across the rear gardens to the countryside beyond. A combination of high ceilings, well specified finishes and original features such as the intricate decorative cornice gives the room a feeling of opulence, the perfect place for guests to experience the delicious selection of locally sourced food. A feature multifuel stove offers warmth and comfort in equal measure.
The kitchen is positioned to the end of the hallway and consists of a range of stylish grey wall and floor units, complimented by a contrasting wooden worktop. The design encompasses a range of integrated appliances including a high specification Rangemaster stove and offers plenty of preparation area. The room is warmed by fan-assisted heating. To the rear of the kitchen, a functional utility room and porch also give access to the side garden of the property.
A double guest bedroom is located on the ground floor, complete with a stylish en-suite bathroom featuring a standalone bath, inbuilt shower and two-piece bathroom suite. A separate WC is also located on the ground floor, accessed from the hallway.
The upper floor is accessed by a feature wooden staircase, leading up from the hallway. A half-landing provides an unusual seating area, popular with guests looking to relax and take in the countryside views.
The three upper floor guest bedrooms are all accessed from a central landing and each benefit from a stylish en-suite bathroom. Two of the bedrooms are overlooking the rear gardens and enjoy views across the fields. A fifth bedroom is used as an owner’s residence, also benefitting from an en-suite shower room. All en-suites have electric underfloor heating, along with the ground floor cloakroom. A service staircase leads to the lower floor, exiting close to the utility room. A sizable storage cupboard is accessed from the stairs, with additional storage available under the main staircase.
