Description

Sitting in an idyllic woodland position on the fringe of the picturesque coastal village of North Connel, Staffa offers buyers an opportunity to acquire a wonderful three-bedroom family house set within magnificent mature gardens and enjoying wonderful far-reaching views across Loch Etive.

The house is accessed by the front, with a path leading through the garden to a porch and door which opens into the hallway. The house can also be accessed from the large rear parking area, with a large conservatory leading through to a boot room/utility room and also through to a wonderful
modern fitted kitchen.

A selection of wall and floor units sit under a contrasting worktop and are complimented by a wide range of builtin appliances. Central to the kitchen, a large island unit features a stylish worktop formed from a single slab of Scottish granite. A set of large French doors opens from
the kitchen to the front decking and BBQ area, flooding the room with natural daylight and offering far reaching views across the gardens to Achnacree Bay.

Adjacent to the kitchen, a family dining room offers space to entertain family and friends and is conveniently complimented by an adjoining washroom.

A central hallway links the dining room to a spacious family lounge, which also features a second set of French doors. The room extends to an area used as a home study which is also large enough to house a baby grand piano. The room
is warmed through by way of a stylish wood burner set on a slate hearth which compliments the central heating.

Stairs lead from the hallway to the upper floor where a central landing links the three bedrooms, with a spacious master bedroom spanning the full width of the property. The master bedroom also features a range of built-in wardrobes, offering ample storage space, with the adjacent shower room offering a relatively easy conversion to create a combined en-suite layout.

Along the landing, a newly installed family bathroom features a full-sized free-standing bath, complimented by a stylish bathroom suite. The wonderful design also includes a walk-in shower.

This delightful property is presented in walk-in condition and is offered with a selection of furniture, available by separate negotiation.

The property is accessed from the single-track road with a gated entrance leading into a sweeping tree-lined tarmac driveway. An area to the rear of the house offers parking for several vehicles, with an attached garage offering covered
parking, storage and workshop space. The electric garage door is remotely operated for added convenience. To the side, a new garden shed sits in a sheltered position and gives space for the storage of garden equipment.

Mature gardens sweep down to the front, creating a wonderful, tranquil space to enjoy with the family. An exciting variety of plants, shrubs and mature trees offer an everchanging floral display and are testament to the many years of hard work and devotion by the owners to create something
truly special. A new summer house is also positioned in the lower garden, offering an escape to simply relax and enjoy this glorious space.

A notable feature is the truly magnificent oak tree which sits within the rear garden of the property, creating a superb backdrop and providing a combination of shelter and shade.

The property is perfectly suited to those looking to enjoy an active lifestyle and is within easy commuting distance from Oban. A boat mooring is included with the house, conveniently located in Achnacree bay, directly in front of the house. Furthermore, the property benefits from the right of fishing for sea trout in Loch Etive.

Given its popular location, interest in the property is likely to be high, and early viewing is highly recommended.
