Property Description



Situated on the outskirts of the desirable village of Arisaig, with its bustling marina and sea views, the subjects of sale form a charming, traditional, detached dwellinghouse, which dates back to the mid 20th Century, set in generous garden grounds. Offering spacious accommodation, in a convenient layout, across two floors, the property benefits from oil fired central heating and is double glazed. Whilst some upgrading would be advantageous, due to the size, location and flexibility of the accommodation on offer, Birchwood would be ideally suited as a wonderful family home or following works, would offer an exciting investment opportunity for the very buoyant self-catering market.
