The picturesque rural community of Clachan Seil extends along the shore of Seil Sound, a sought after area of great natural beauty, some 14 miles south of the principal Argyll town of Oban. The area is renowned for its magnificent scenery, excellent sailing and fishing, is steeped in history and rich in flora and fauna. Connected to the mainland by the famous ‘Bridge over the Atlantic’, Seil Island is well serviced with facilities and includes an excellent village store/post office at Balvicar, a public house which serves food, church, doctors surgery, 9 hole golf course and primary school nearby. The Seil Island Community Hall hosts a variety of activities and events and there is an excellent sheltered yacht anchorage at Balvicar Bay, only a short distance away.
Carraig is a beautifully presented detached bungalow which from its elevated position enjoys superb views across the Sound of Seil to the countryside beyond. Completely renovated and modernised to a meticulous standard of appointment by a well respected local joiner as his own family home, the property now offers contemporary accommodation with fixtures and fittings of an exceptional quality. The high quality kitchen with island unit and integrated Neff appliances is open plan to the dining area, with a picture glazed panel to the rear garden, which in turn is open plan to the lounge area with a fitted media unit with built-in bookcases either side. Heating is by way of an oil fired system augmented by a Charnwood multi-fuel stove with a feature brick inset. Further benefits of the accommodation include extensive fitted wardrobes to two of the four bedrooms, a modern design bathroom and en-suite shower room and to complete, Amtico oak flooring throughout. The garden, extending to around ¾ of an acre, leads off the private access road to a spacious gravelled parking area with garage, onto a contemporary decked seating area beyond which is a delightful natural grassed area with greenhouse, all adding to the appeal of this outstanding home.
