Property description

Set within a smallholding of three acres, with delightful burnside gardens and grazing paddocks, this charming ‘Bennan Blue and White' detached period cottage promises a peaceful rural setting with an elevated position offering uninterrupted sea views and scenic vistas of the island's forestry and hills. Extended and developed to incorporate three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and generous adjoining living space, the bright, modern interiors enjoy minimalist Scandi-inspired styling enhanced by homely rustic features such as sanded wood floors and traditional latch doors. Numerous detached outbuildings with excellent potential include a stable complex and workshops, while a driveway provides plentiful private parking.

Picturesque elevated setting – fantastic coastal and country views

The cottage is entered via a bright porch/seating nook or, to the rear, a boot room with storage. Both entrance areas lead into a sizeable southwest-facing reception room for relaxation and dining, with garden access and inviting log-burner stoves featured at either end. The reception room affords access to a bright shower room, a sunny bedroom/home office with far-reaching views, and the kitchen.

Generous living space - leading into a bespoke country kitchen

Leading onto the gardens and focused around a central area with space for a farmhouse table, the bespoke kitchen exudes country charm with such characterful features as solid-oak cabinetry, a statement ‘Bennan Blue' electric range cooker, and a deep Belfast sink. Further equipping the space is an integral dishwasher and a freestanding fridge, while, in a bright adjoining utility room, there is a freestanding washing machine, tumble dryer, and freezer.

Three inviting bedrooms – with versatility for home working

To the centre of the reception room, a bespoke spiral staircase affords access to the first floor and the remaining bedrooms, accessed from a naturally-lit landing and both sky-lit and comfortably carpeted. The larger bedroom is supplemented by built-in wardrobes and a sky-lit en-suite bathroom with a WC suite and a circular bath with an overhead shower, framed by chic mosaic tilework. The property is kept warm and efficient with full double glazing and a biomass wood-burning boiler for the central heating and hot water supply.

A smallholding of three acres with useful outbuildings and private parking

The cottage's attractive and affordable smallholding of three acres includes enclosed burnside gardens with a sea-facing summer house, an enclosed vegetable garden with a polytunnel, and parcels of grazing land interconnected by farm gates. Housed within the grounds are numerous detached outbuildings providing outstanding storage or development potential, subject to planning permissions. These include a multi-stable block (with a tack room and workshop) and a large detached workshop (with upper storage) benefiting from power and water. Finally, a gravelled driveway provides private parking for several vehicles.
