McIntyre & Company are delighted to bring Beasdale Station Cottage to the market. A truly unique opportunity to purchase a delightful, character filled former Station House in the Scottish Highlands. Beasdale is located on the world famous West Highland Line that runs from Fort William to Mallaig, The Jacobite Steam Train [AKA, Hogwarts Express] passes Beasdale’s kitchen door four times a day during the summer months (two daily return journeys). The Station was originally built as a private station for nearby Arisaig House but was sold in the 1970’s. Sadly, the building fell into disrepair and became derelict until 1989 when the building was bought and thoughtfully converted with the help of local contractors into the charming residential property that stands today. Beasdale is currently one of the most underused station platforms in the whole of Scotland. Beasdale is a “halt” stop so that passengers can simply put out their hand to flag down the train or request the guard stops at Beasdale if they are already onboard. Internally the property comprises an entrance hall with good storage, a large open plan lounge-kitchen-diner with vaulted style ceiling and features a log burner that sits on a slate hearth and tiled mantle. There is access via a stable door to the garden and train platform. A family bathroom with shower over, WC, utility room and two bedrooms. All neutrally decorated and with external window/door shutters to add to the charm and character of the cottage. The property is double glazed with sash sliding window and has electric heating that is supplemented by the wood burner. This property will appeal to enthusiasts and to those who enjoy outdoors pursuits on the surrounding hills and beaches. It will equally appeal to those who prefer to indulge their creative side, in the tranquillity of this cosy cottage.
