Attractive traditional detached cottage

The sale of Taigh Bean Iain presents an opportunity to acquire an attractive, traditional detached cottage at Caolas, on the beautiful, inner Hebridean island of Tiree.

In excellent order throughout, the property benefits from sash-and-case double glazing and electric heating. The lounge and kitchen/diner, both with dual aspect windows and feature multi-fuel stoves, are most attractive features and are further complemented by a modern shower room and three bedrooms. The property occupies generous private garden grounds of around 0.18 acres, laid in the main to lawn, offset with mature hedging and shrubs, whilst the addition of an attached outbuilding provides a large workshop area, which subject to the necessary planning consents, could provide either an extension to the cottage, or a self-catering prospect.
