Charming stone-built Bothy hits the market

A charming stone-built cottage which couples modern style with idyllic island life is on the property market.

The Bothy, on the scenic Isle of Jura, Inner Hebrides, offers buyers a rare opportunity to set up home on the highly sought-after island.

Situated in the quiet community of Knockrome, the two-bedroom home provides far reaching sea views with spacious living and a modern style interior.

A stone-built property, The Bothy features a high wooden clad ceiling, with natural stone interior while solid wood flooring adds to the property’s character.

The property would be a perfect family home but also gives buyers the option of using it as a holiday home to enjoy the delights of Scotland’s west coast.

Andrew Fuller at Bell Ingram, said: ‘The Bothy is a unique property which presents buyers with the opportunity to live the relaxed island lifestyle that many people dream of.

‘Family life could not be more idyllic in the cottage, with a large upper story children’s playroom a prominent feature in the home, and plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities available on the island.

‘The modern style, combined with ample natural light gives this property the perfect homely feel and sense of character, with an open fireplace and high ceilings in the living room giving The Bothy a strong feeling of warmth.’

The main entrance of the property leads directly into the large lounge, combined with dining and kitchen area. High ceilings maximise the feeling of space while the room is bathed in natural light.

An internal hallway is accessed from the kitchen, providing access to the staircase, family bathroom and two spacious ground floor bedrooms.

On the upper floor is a large children’s playroom, which has potential to be adapted for other uses.

There’s a small garden at the front of the property which provides breathtaking sea views while off-road parking is available at the rear of the property.

Andrew added: ‘The Bothy’s new owners will enjoy the stunning views surrounding the property, while the modern interior ensures they’ll view them in style.

‘The Isle of Jura offers numerous opportunities for those who enjoy the outdoors, with plenty of opportunities to explore nature.’

The Isla of Jura is home to 200 residents and boasts a stunning landscape. The west coast of the island comprises wild terrain of raised beaches and caves, packed with wildlife.

Jura’s only distillery produces a world-famous malt whisky while the farmhouse where George Orwell resided in the late 1940s and wrote his well-known novel Nineteen Eighty-Four is on the island.

The agents will consider offers over £120,000.
