Property Introduction

McIntyre & Company are delighted to bring Moss View to the market.  A truly unique opportunity to purchase a character filled, stone built, original croft house in the Scottish Highlands.  Situated in an idyllic and enviable location set amidst some of the finest scenery on the West Coast of Scotland’s Ardnamurchan Peninsula. Extending to approximately 4 acres this owner occupied croft appreciates stunning views towards Kentra Bay and is surrounded by wild meadow. The croft is registered, registration number is A0238 and there is common grazing that may be available to the next prospective buyer.  On the croftland site is an old stone byre ruin and a  static caravan (not liveable) that has a disconnected electricity supply. The cottage and garden have been decrofted and within the garden is a large shed and a partially built garage. The original crofting cottage is bright and airy with dual aspect windows in the majority of the rooms that provide plenty of natural daylight throughout.  This well presented cottage is neutrally decorated with predominantly white wash or panel painted walls and comprises Two double bedrooms, a cottage style kitchen, spacious dining room with Aga, a delightful sitting room and a family bathroom on the ground floor. The cottage benefits from double glazing,  cottage style internal doors and has electric heating. The property is ideal for someone looking for a leisurely or proactive lifestyle but it should be noted that any prospective buyer will be required to follow crofting  regulations for the none decrofted croftland regardless of their intentions for purpose.  This land and cottage form an idyllic family home, or holiday retreat, as well as an excellent business opportunity for the buoyant holiday letting market.
