Property Description



Peacefully nestled in the popular West coast town of Oban, the subjects of sale form a substantial detached dwellinghouse, set in charming garden grounds with partial views to the Sound of Kerrara. Ideally centrally located to take full advantage of the town’s facilities and amenities, Birkhill would make a fantastic family home or excellent investment opportunity in a buoyant rental market. Whilst upgrading and modernisation would be advantageous, Birkhill does benefit from bright, spacious rooms arranged in a convenient layout over two floors and provides good storage. The large, dual aspect lounge with dining room off, is a most attractive feature whilst the pleasant garden would provide the successful purchaser with a superb space to create their own vision.

Oban itself provides a comprehensive range of services, both commercially and culturally. The town boasts a wide variety of businesses, offices, shops, restaurants, cafes and bars while sporting and other facilities can be enjoyed at the Atlantis Leisure Centre. Known as “The Seafood Capital of Scotland”, the town is also the Gateway to the Isles, with ferry, train and air services linking the islands to the mainland and central belt.
