MacPhee & Partners are delighted to bring to the market The Manse, a unique, late-Victorian property which is situated in a commanding position in upper Tobermory, with wonderful, panoramic views to The Sound of Mull. The property has been beautifully maintained and restored, and now offers an exceptional blend of modern, comfortable accommodation and traditional charm. On the ground floor, the accommodation comprises of a large drawing room, a dining room, kitchen and pantry, cloakroom and utility room, whilst upstairs there are four bedrooms, a boxroom, two bathrooms and a hatch with ladder to a floored, lit and fully insulated loft. The property is in immaculate decorative order and retains many of its period features with abundant carved wood finishes, cornicing and ceiling roses. The use of rich wallpapers and opulent soft furnishings further enhance the character of the property.

The garden is delightful, with a gently sloping lawn from which can be admired the views over Tobermory Bay.

Tobermory is situated along the north-east coast of the Isle of Mull. Mull is the most accessible of all the Inner Hebridean Islands, only a two hour drive north-west of Glasgow and a 45 minute sailing from Oban, which makes it a very popular tourist destination. Mull is wonderfully diverse, with towering sea cliffs, powder white sandy beaches and a large mountain range with the peak of Ben More rising to over 3,000 feet. Home to a wide range of wildlife, Mull is one of the best places in Europe to participate in wildlife tourism, with regular sightings of the rare Golden Eagle and the White Tailed Sea Eagle.
