A house with a view is always desirable – but it pales in comparison against a farmhouse set right on the shores of a white, sandy beach on the west coast of Scotland.
Arinthluic is a traditional three-bedroom island house set in 48 acres of private grounds, boasting direct access from its garden to the sandy beaches, sheltered moorings and turquoise water of Coll.
Coll is a Dark Skies island with no light pollution and is renowned for its tranquillity, so this idyllic estate offers the perfect opportunity for buyers dreaming of a move to the coast.
There are outstanding views to Mull and the Treshnish Islands and the property itself includes a derelict cottage in its grounds, which has great potential to be transformed into a studio or business opportunity.
Coll can be reached via regular ferry connections to the mainland of Oban and there is also a small airport with flights to Oban and Tiree. The property is currently on the market with Oban-based chartered surveyors, land and estate agents Bell Ingram at offers over £375,000.
Mairi Kennedy at Bell Ingram’s Oban office, said: “This is a truly not-to-be-missed opportunity for buyers to snap up a stunning seaside property just in time to spend carefree summer days and evenings in a beautiful and peaceful location.
“The coastal views all around the estate are exceptional and can only be fully appreciated in person, but being able to look out the window and see as far as Mull and the Treshnish Islands is really special.
“The cottage in the grounds also offers many possibilities and could easily be renovated and used as a small second home or holiday let, subject to the necessary consents.”
Coll is sprinkled with historic sites, rare wildlife and a diverse plant life. There are frequent sightings of basking sharks and Minke whales, dolphins and seals in the surrounding seas in front of the house and the island is a birdwatcher’s paradise.
Nearby, the village of Arinagour offers various local amenities such as a renowned hotel and bar, a doctor’s surgery, post office and general store and the vibrant community centre offers recreational activities in the form of a gym, sports hall and theatre facilities.
Viewings are strictly by appointment only and can be arranged through Bell Ingram’s Oban office on 01631 566 122.
