A BEAUTIFULLY SITUATED 2/3 BEDROOM DETACHED COTTAGE, SET ON 11.5 ACRES OF LAND ALONG WITH AN UNDIVIDED SHARE OF COMMONAGE EXTENDING TO 10.35 ACRES. THE PROPERTY HAS EXCELLENT COASTAL VIEWS AND FRONTAGE. THIS LOVELY COTTAGE PROVIDES THE OPPORTUNITY FOR FUTURE EXTENSIONS AS THE LAND VIRTUALLY SURROUNDS THE HOUSE.

The property faces south east, and is a charming traditional 2/3 bedroom cottage in need of complete renovation. The property benefits from excellent coastal views and is one of only a handful of houses on this lovely island.

Originally constructed circa around 1900, the property has been extended to the rear to provide a spacious kitchen and bathroom. To the first floor there is full length room that could be converted to create additional living accommodation subject to necessary planning constraints.

THE LANDS: surround the property and then travel west right over the island down to the shore on the west and south. The lands extend to circa 11.5 acres and are divided into separate gardens with stone wall divisions.
