The sale of An Taigh Muir presents an exciting opportunity to acquire a very impressive, traditional stone, semi-detached, cottage on the beautiful inner Hebridean island of Tiree. Situated in the peaceful township of Cornaigmore, and commanding stunning, open views across the machair and countryside, the property benefits from double glazing, air source central heating and a striking multi-fuel stove in the lounge. This charming, black roof house, typical to Tiree, is in excellent order and beautifully presented, offering deceptively spacious accommodation over two levels. The semi-open plan living areas, bright dining room and bespoke wooden staircase are most attractive features. Complimenting the cottage are the enclosed, private garden grounds, complete with paved patio area and garden shed. Located just minutes walking distance, away from Cornaig beach, the property is currently used as a very successful self-catering cottage and can be sold as a going concern, with bookings confirmed until October 2022. The furniture and all items seen, can be included at separate negotiation. The property would also make an ideal permanent home or idyllic, holiday home. The owner’s other adjoining property, Sea Breeze Cottage is also available for sale.
