Situated in the coastal village of Connel, a short distance from Oban, The Old Smithy is a traditional stone-built cottage with two large adjoining stone outbuildings.
Entrance is via a small walled front garden through the main front door into the hallway. A ground floor bedroom sits to the right, complete with en-suite shower facilities. The original twisted stair access to the upper floor is located in the heart of the house and a well specified family bathroom with corner bath can also be accessed from the hallway.
A combined kitchen/dining and living room gives opportunity for entertaining family and friends and has been cleverly integrated to maximise space. A feature multifuel stove is a feature of the room and provides warmth and comfort in equal measure.
The first floor offers further accommodation, with two double bedrooms, each benefitting from the
fantastic views on offer. The staircase benefits from natural light through the addition of a Velux roof window.
The property has recently been the subject of a full renovation and offers a fantastic opportunity for those looking to create a new home within easy access of the vibrant seaside town of Oban.
Externally the property includes a large area of ground to the side and rear, which offers scope for future design and landscaping. The two stone outbuildings have retained their original character and offer endless possibilities for storage, art and craft, or the possibility of establishing a stylish home-based office.
With far reaching views across the water to the iconic Connel Bridge, the potential uses of its outbuildings and its proximity to the waters edge, this property is sure to attract significant attention. Early viewing is highly recommended.
