Property & Area Description
Located in the Bunree area in the desirable village of Onich, this traditional detached property enjoys an elevated position in generous and private garden grounds enjoying uninterrupted views to Loch Linnhe and the surrounding mountains. In addition to the main dwelling, Marine House, an upper floor self-contained apartment is also included in the sale.
Providing spacious and flexible accommodation over two floors, Marine House would be ideally suited to a number of uses including a fantastic family home with separate rental accommodation, an idyllic holiday retreat or exciting self-catering opportunity in a buoyant holiday-let market. Boasting original features including a striking pitch pine staircase and original etched glass panelled door in the entrance hallway, the modern conservatory with views to the loch and countryside is a most attractive feature and further compliments the stature of the property.
The Marine is approached by a private gravelled driveway, leading to a parking area to the side of the house and boasts generous garden grounds, laid to a mixture of lawn, gravelled and paved areas, offset with mature trees, shrubs, bushes and seasonal planting. A raised decked patio features to the front of the property taking in the best of the views whilst a tree house, pergola and greenhouse compliment the garden space. A brick-built workshop with light and power provides a superb work area and the current owners have built useful covered areas sheltering exterior log stores and drying area.
Set in the popular coastal village of Onich, which has Fort William and Glencoe an easy 15 minute commute in either direction, the property is well placed to take advantage of the numerous leisure and pleasure activities the area has to offer. Onich itself has a shop, hotels, pubs and restaurants, with the local primary school in nearby North Ballachulish and secondary schools in Fort William and Strontian. The area is now recognised as the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’ and benefits from year round visitors taking advantage of the excellent outdoor pursuits available throughout the year including walking, mountaineering, ski-ing, sailing, fishing, golf and sight seeing.
