Nestled in the hills with open countryside views, East Barravullin offers buyers an opportunity to acquire a two-bedroom property with a land area of approximately 1.5 Acres. The property is of
poured concrete construction and sits under a traditional slate roof.
Entrance to the property is from the front, with an external door leading straight into a central hallway. The family lounge is located to the left, with a combined kitchen / dining room located
to the right. To the rear, a family bathroom sits within a more recent extension to the property.
Stairs lead from the hallway to the upper floor where two bedrooms offer accommodation with some built in storage space. Windows to the front give views across the mature front gardens.
The property is in need of complete renovation, but once completed could make a lovely family home. The extensive land area gives opportunity for those looking to extend or build, subject to the necessary planning consents.
Entrance to the property is off the A816 down a widened road leading to a gravel parking area. The remains of a car garage are evident, with the concrete foundation still in place. The plot area
extends to around 1.5 acres which includes a mature garden area surrounding the house. Somewhat overgrown at present, the garden features some exceptionally interesting shrubs and
Adjacent to the main house, an ageing wooden workshop / garage has been used to store a mixture of garden tools and artefacts.
The property also includes the remains of two ruined croft cottages, each retaining the original stone features. These buildings offer scope for renovation, subject to the necessary planning consents. A pre-app has been submitted to Argyll and Bute Council and further information on this can be obtained from the sole selling agents. It should be noted that the land owner will retain right of access along the track to the fields, although the anticipated use is likely to be minimal. The purchaser will be responsible for the erection and maintenance of a stock-proof
fence and gates.
