Property Description


The Old Post Office forms a most charming, detached dwellinghouse, located in the popular, coastal, village of Kentallen, ideally positioned with stunning views over Loch Linnhe, to the mountains beyond. Set against a mountain backdrop in generous, well-maintained, garden grounds with private parking, the setting is further complemented by the property itself, which dates back to around 1945, and extended in 1999. Upgrades, in recent years, include a new roof, windows and main door, whilst the property is also freshly, neutrally, decorated throughout and flooded with natural light. In excellent order and beautifully presented, The Old Post Office benefits from oil fired central heating and double glazing, and enjoys bright, airy and comfortable rooms. The split-level sun room and lounge, with French doors to the patio area, large kitchen and breakfast room, and formal dining room with open fire and decorative plastered ceiling, are most attractive features. The property’s layout provides the owners with flexible accommodation, and offers an idyllic holiday home as currently used, however it would also be ideally suited as a superb, permanent family home, or as an investment opportunity for self-catering accommodation in a very buoyant holiday letting market.

Kentallen is a small village set along the coastline of Loch Linnhe. There is a popular hotel with restaurant and leisure facilities in close proximity, plus a cycle track which runs between Glencoe and Oban. The nearby villages of Ballachulish and Glencoe have a range of local amenities including supermarket, medical centre, post office, cafes, pubs, restaurants and schools. There is a highly regarded 9-hole golf course in close proximity, whilst Glencoe offers spectacular hill walking, climbing and  skiing. Locally, the area also offers a diverse range of activities including sailing, kayaking, mountain biking and fishing. Fort William, some 16 miles north, enjoys extensive shopping, entertainment, pubs and restaurants, and is a renowned centre for outdoor activities. Oban, 28 miles to the south, also provides a good selection of shops, cafes and restaurants and offers daily ferry services to the islands. Both towns have train stations with services to Glasgow and London.
