Charming detached cottage

Occupying a prime position, quietly located in the most desirable area of Airds Bay at Taynuilt, Gardener's Cottage forms a charming detached cottage, set in attractive garden grounds. Offering deceptively spacious accommodation, conveniently arranged over one level, the property would benefit from some modernising, however benefits from double glazing, electric heating, and an open fire with black boiler. The accommodation comprises a dual-aspect lounge/diner, kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom, whilst there is laddered access up to the loft area, split in to three separate useful areas. Private off-street parking is available at the cottage, plus a car port to the rear. Built in around 1854, the property was first purchased in 1917 by the family, sold off some 60 years later, then re-purchased in 2007 where it has remained in the family's name since. Due to the size and location, the property would make an ideal permanent home, idyllic holiday retreat as currently used, or as an investment opportunity for the buoyant self-catering market, following works. Please note, the majority of contents and some garden items will be included in the sale. No guarantees will be given with any of the 'white goods'.
