Fantastic Renovation Project.
This delightful, detached cottage was originally built around 1890 and whilst it was partially restored some 18 years ago the cottage requires further renovations to provide for an excellent family or holiday home.
External walls are of solid stone construction and internally the cottage retains some of its original features. Internal doors have been replaced in keeping with the character of the cottage and some of the internal walls have wood clad panelling.
The cottage is set in a beautiful location on the West Coast of Scotland at Polloch, just five miles from its closest village of Strontian. Glenhurich is one of just a few properties within the hamlet of Polloch a tranquil, woodland setting with beautiful heather-clad hills.
There is currently no mains electric, a private electrical supply was previously provided by an LPG/Calor Gas Pramac generator with an inverter and battery backup supply. There is a private water supply and a partial central heating system via a solid fuel Rayburn to the kitchen. The Rayburn also heats the radiators on the ground floor and heats hot water which is stored in a combination cylinder.
It should be noted that the valuation placed on the cottage reflects the fact that repairs, upgrading and modernisation of the property is required.
