Shieldaig Silvercraigs, Lochgilphead
(Bungalow, 3 bedrooms)
Guide price £240,000
Situated in a semi rural location, Shieldaig is a bright, spacious 3/4 bedroom bungalow in the ever popular Silvercraigs area by Lochgilphead. Built at the millennium on the site of a derelict croft, the house is located in an elevated sheltered position set back from the bay, where it takes full advantage of the stunning views. Front entrance porch is currently used as a study area, lounge with multi fuel stove, breakfasting kitchen, 3 bedrooms 1 with en suite facilities, dining/fourth bedroom with patio doors to outside, family bathroom, and utility room to the rear. The property further benefits from a 0.5-acre plot, oil central heating, double glazing, private driveway and detached garage/workshop with power. Outside tap to garage/workshop. Mains electricity, water and private drainage. Broadband and digital television are available. Silvercraigs bay is one of the popular beauty spots recommended in the Clyde Cruising Club guide for sailors to the West Coast, where yachts can moor safely overnight or stay longer to enjoy the area. The bay itself is tidal and shallow, with gentle tides occurring twice a day, and all bounded by a silver strip of beach. At low tide, it takes ten minutes to walk out from the shoreline to the furthest point, where the odd inquisitive seal will pop up to surprise you. Being both tidal and shallow, there is no way the water will ever encroach upon the land. The short aerial video shows this very clearly.
