Situated in an elevated position above the picturesque coastal town of Tobermory, Braeside House is a beautifully presented, architect designed detached property, offering family accommodation over four levels. The property was individually designed for our clients to provide a wonderful living space across four levels.
Braeside House is accessed from the private gravel driveway, leading into an entrance vestibule. A downstairs bedroom is located on this ground floor level, benefitting from full en-suite facilities. To the right, a functional utility room also offers space for storage of outdoor clothing. The ground floor level is completed by a WC, located off the utility room and built in storage cupboard.
A central staircase leads to the next floor, which offers accommodation by way of two double en-suite bedrooms, one of which has been used as a craft room in recent times. A number of sliding doors on the landing give convenient access to large storage cupboards.
The next floor offers an attractive family living space by way of a large combined lounge and dining room, with high sloping ceilings giving it a wonderfully airy feel. A large wood burning stove forms the focal point of the room, offering warmth and comfort in equal measure. Adjacent to the lounge lies a spacious fitted kitchen, with dual aspect windows offering views across the gardens and over to Tobermory Bay.
The upper floor is home to a further two double bedrooms, each offering en-suite bathroom facilities and built in wardrobe storage. The rooms are connected by an internal gallery landing which looks down over the lounge.
Braeside is set within a large plot of approximately 1/3 Acre. A private, gated driveway leads from the road, offering off-road parking for a number of vehicles. A double garage is accessed from the gravel driveway, offering flexibility for storage and workshop space, with parking for a large vehicle. The property benefits from maturing gardens, with the northern side retaining the original rocky features. Other areas have been set aside for the planting of shrubs and trees.
Braeside House would make a delightful family home, and with its desirable location, could easily be operated as a holiday home or bed and breakfast, offering significant income potential.
Braeside House is situated within the colourful harbour town of Tobermory. The town is a popular tourist destination and provides an excellent range of dining and shopping opportunities as well as offering primary and secondary schooling, a medical centre, churches, a golf course and a distillery.
The Isle of Mull is the second largest island within the Inner Hebrides. The island is accessed via a regular car ferry service from Oban to Craignure. Services from Lochaline and Kilchoan on the Morvern and Ardnamurchan peninsulas respectively are also available. There is a small airstrip at Glenforsa suitable for private aircraft and a main line train service operating several times daily between Glasgow and Oban - some connecting directly with the ferries.
Mull boasts an extraordinary and diverse range of scenery, wildlife and leisure activities which brings large numbers of visitors throughout the year. The island also hosts a number of music and arts festivals plus the annual Tour of Mull car rally. In the sea surrounding Mull there are various trips provided to local puffin and seal colonies and also to Iona, and the island of Staffa where many tourists visit Fingals Cave.
