Bell Ingram is delighted to be able to offer 4 Kiel Crofts, a three-bedroom detached bungalow set within an owner-occupied croft, with a land area extending to around 15 acres.
This single storey house sits within a de-crofted area of land and is accessed through a glazed entrance porch before leading into a central hallway. A stylish family lounge is located to the left, warmed through by a log burning stove. The front facing window offers uninterrupted views across the grazing fields, and beyond to towards Ardmucknish Bay.
A combined fitted kitchen and dining room lies to the rear of the property, with a second external door leading out to the rear parking area. The kitchen has a crisp, modern feel, having recently been subject to modernisation.
Accommodation is provided by way of three bedrooms, the largest of which is complimented by an en-suite shower room. The property layout is completed by way of a family bathroom and various storage cupboards, one of which houses the modern electric hot water tank.
The property is accessed from the road via a long private drive, with grazing fields to either side. The bungalow gardens are fenced, with mature gardens giving way to areas laid to lawn. A flagged patio area is located to the front, offering a place to sit and relax in the private surroundings.
The original croft cottage offers opportunity for future development. The building requires complete refurbishment to bring up to an acceptable standard and would be an interesting project for those looking to create a second property on the croft. Architect plans have been drawn and planning permission in principle has been granted to develop the building.
The croft offers a mixture of grazing land, rough pasture, gardens and hardstanding, with areas fenced off for segregation of livestock. A large wooden garage / workshop has been installed, offering storage and workshop space. A recent addition is a bespoke woodshed, perfect for the dry storage of split timber. A corner of the land close to the road has also been de-crofted and offers scope for additional development. The property benefits from a share of common grazing nearby.
