Set in a wonderful elevated position overlooking the picturesque bay of Oban, Torridon offers an opportunity to acquire a substantial period granite and stone-built property sitting under a traditional slate roof.
Entrance to the property is via a private path that winds up through mature front gardens giving access to the front door of the house. A vestibule leads into a lovely central hallway. Upon entering the property, it is immediately apparent that it has been sympathetically maintained over the years, with much care and attention given to retain many of the period features of the time, such as stained-glass doors and decorative ceiling roses.
A comfortable and spacious sitting room is located to the left, complete with ornate tiled fireplace and a large bay window which perfectly frames far reaching views. The dining room is located to the right of the hallway, again capitalising on the superb open aspect views across the bay of Oban.
To the rear of the property, a large kitchen has been designed and installed to be in keeping with the property, utilising a combination of bespoke wooden cabinets, complimented with granite worktops. A central island gives additional worktop space, while two windows flood the room with natural daylight.
Adjacent to the kitchen, a fully fitted utility room houses a variety of appliances and offers additional storage options. An entrance hall / boot room offers access to the side garden, and further to the parking at the rear of the property. A large cupboard in this room also houses a newly installed gas boiler. A separate WC completed the ground floor accommodation.
A marvellous wooden staircase leads from the central hallway to the upper floor, where a central courtyard type landing gives access to 5 bedrooms and a fully fitted family bathroom with bath and shower.
The front facing bedrooms benefit from the breath-taking views, with large windows giving them a bright and airy feel. The master bedroom also benefits from a walk-in dressing room with wash facilities for added convenience. A separate WC is also located on the first floor.
The property has been used a family home in recent years but is equally suited to be operated as a Bed and Breakfast, offering buyers potential for secondary income. Early viewing is highly recommended.
Torridon is set in majestic elevated position and enjoys superb views across Oban bay and beyond to the Isle of Mull. Mature gardens and trees surround the property offering a degree of privacy.
A pathway gives access around the property while a large garden shed provides storage for gardening essentials.
A path leads to the quiet road at the rear of the house, where there is on road parking for several vehicles.
To the front, a mature garden flows down to the road below, with a winding path giving access to the house from the lower gate.
Torridon is conveniently located just a ten-minute walk from Oban town centre. Oban is a popular west coast town with a thriving local population. It is popular with tourists and offers a comprehensive range of local amenities including shops, restaurants, banks, cafes and bars.
For those looking to enjoy a more active lifestyle, the town benefits from a large leisure centre, golf club and various gyms. Several sailing marinas are located within close proximity to the town. There are a number of primary schools and a well-respected high school, as well as a medical centre, hospital, and churches of various denominations.
The town prides itself on the title of Scotlands Seafood Capital and has a longstanding fishing heritage. Its bustling harbour is also used by the ferries of Caledonian MacBrayne as they serve the Inner and Outer Hebrides on a daily basis.
