If you love boats, sailing and are hoping to drop anchor in a waterfront home, then set sail for Tigh na Roin, a lovely home in Kilmelford.
This Argyll home is certain to attract interest from sailors as it sits in a waterfront position on the southern shore of Fearnach Bay, at the head of Loch Melfort, with frontage to the loch.
It has plenty of space for storing boats, as access to the house is through Kilmelford Boatyard.
A few other houses lie between the boatyard and Tigh na Roin, which is at the end of the access road, with open ground to the west, so it is a tranquil spot, despite the boatyard.
Tigh Na Roin is ideally positioned for sailing, with some of Scotland’s most picturesque and testing sailing waters right on the doorstep.
Along with Kilmelford boatyard there are further facilities at the Yacht Haven at Melfort Village, and there are marinas nearby at Ardfern and Craobh Haven.
The modern house, built in a traditional style – on the market at offers over £495,000 – has been designed to make the most of the magnificent views.
The front door is to the side of the house but the everyday entrance is via the back door and a tiled entrance porch.
The accommodation comprises a reception hall, dining room, drawing room, kitchen/dining room, utility room, WC, master bedroom with en-suite shower room and dressing room, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Features include an open fireplace in a Seil slate chimney breast and lovely north-westerly views over the loch from the drawing room, while the dining room also has an open fireplace and french doors to a paved area to the south of the house.
The kitchen has windows on three aspects and looks out over the water. It’s on an open plan with the dining area and has doors to the garden.
There’s a good range of units in the kitchen, plus a Belfast sink, integrated fridge, hob and oven and a central island incorporating a dishwasher.
A two-oven Esse cooker also provides the central heating.
Practical tiled or wood floors and fresh decor make it an easy house to maintain.
Outside, the grounds have been kept simple and largely natural, with trees providing shelter and screening the house from the only neighbouring property, to the east.
There’s a substantial shed and a boardwalk leading to the loch while a pretty burn and wild flowers including bluebells, primroses, anemone and sea asters grow on the shore line.
