Property Description



Situated on the outskirts of the village of Kilchrenan, Ardshonais is an immaculately presented bungalow which sits in its own delightful garden of around 0.75 acres and offers a haven of peace and privacy.  Beautifully presented inside, the property was built by its current owners in cca 1990 and has been meticulously nurtured and developed ever since.  The spacious accommodation, all on one level, comprises of a large lounge with a feature multi-fuel burner (which contributes significantly to the energy efficiency of the house), Bamboo wooden flooring and patio doors leading to raised external decking.  In addition, there is a modern kitchen/diner, two bedrooms, a utility room (which could easily be converted to a bedroom) and a family bathroom.  For further storage space, there is an external under-build store.  Outside, the garden is in similarly immaculate order, offering an idyllic spot for the keen gardener/cultivator, or simply a private and peaceful space in which to sit and admire the views.  There is private, off-street parking.  The property benefits from full double glazing, gas central heating (amply supported by the multi-fuel burner), Sky and AOL Broadband at present.

Travel Directions

From Oban, take the A85 passing through Taynuilt, and turn right where signposted for Kilchrenan (B845). Proceed along the single track road towards Kilchrenan. After approximately 6 miles, pass the signs for Balliemore on the left, and slow down. The road up to the property is a single track road on the right hand side, which is tarmacked and appears to ‘double back’ on the main road. Proceed up this road for approximately 100 yards, bearing left, and the property is the second on the left hand side.
