DO-UPPER OF THE WEEK
LOCATED on the beautiful Hebridean island of Gigha, Ardailly Mill and Croft boasts uninterrupted views across the Sound of Jura to the islands of Islay and Jura from an idyllic setting that includes garden grounds and a further 13 acres of surrounding croft land extending down to private shore frontage.
The C-listed former water mill and crofter’s cottage are currently uninhabitable (no Home Report) however, architect’s drawings are in place to sympathetically transform the croft into a three bedroomed home with living room, dining kitchen, utility and bathroom while retaining the charm of the original property. Services are on site (mains electricity, water and phone/broadband) although the new owner will need to install a new septic tank. The island has good local amenities, spectacular scenery, white sandy beaches and is under a three-hour drive from the central belt of Scotland via a regular 20-minute ferry crossing. A guide price of £300,000 has been set by Dawsons Estate Agents in Oban.
