IMPRESSIVE DETACHED COLT DWELLINGHOUSE
Situated in an elevated position, enjoying spectacular views across Loch Linnhe to the Ardgour Hills, Carradale forms an impressive detached Colt dwellinghouse. Built in 1953, the property has been modernised and extended over the years whilst retaining original mid-century design features such as oak and teak wall panelling, dressed Douglas Fir beams, custom built cupboard and bookcase combinations and an AGA in the large kitchen/diner. In very good order throughout, the property benefits from an oil fired AGA, electric central heating and is mixed glazed. Carradale would make a superb family home, located in a much sought after position.
Located a short distance from the centre of Fort William, the property is ideally placed for the local shops, supermarkets, restaurants, railway and bus station. The area, known as the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’ boasts a huge range of sporting and recreational activities including skiing at nearby Nevis Range, fishing, sailing, hill walking and biking to name but a few.
