Description
Glenara is a granite-built, semi-detached two-and-a-half storey Edwardian villa with sandstone facings, occupying an enviable position on the fringe of the town’s main thoroughfare and ideally located to take full advantage of its B&B potential. The house is predominantly double glazed and benefits from mains gas central heating. The property appears to be in an excellent state of repair, both internally and externally and is in walk in condition.

Currently operating as an established B&B, the property offers the purchaser the opportunity to continue running Glenara as a business or it would be equally suitable as a permanent family home. The décor throughout is very pleasant and has retained many of its original period features including intricate cornice work, high ceilings and ceiling roses and high skirting boards. All rooms benefit from a pleasing décor finished in light neutral colours with good quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

There is an external glazed wooden side entrance door with a decorative etched inset and matching side panels with a skylight above.

Entering the property through the entrance hall there are doors to all the ground floor accommodation. A wide carpeted wooden staircase with a beautiful carved, polished banister and balustrade leads to the first floor.

The bright and airy sitting room has a large bay window to the front enjoying views across Oban Bay and there is a wooden fireplace and mantle with a marble inset and hearth housing a coal effect fire. The dining room has two windows to the side and off the dining room there is access to the kitchen. The spacious kitchen has fitted floor and wall units including a double glass fronted shelved display cabinet with wooden effect roll top work surfaces. A Belling Range comprising a 4 ring ceramic hob and warmer with double oven and grill is a main feature of the kitchen and there are also a number of white goods and electrical appliances.

Off the kitchen the utility room is ideally fitted out to cope with the demands of a B&B and includes a commercial washing machine, commercial tumble dryer, sink unit and ample shelving and storage. The study is relatively private and is accessed from the main entrance hall. It has a window to the side and is a spacious room with fitted carpet and pendant light.

The first floor has a dual landing off the staircase and consists of three good sized en-suite bedrooms and a further, fourth bedroom. Two of the bedrooms on the first floor have views to the front whilst the remaining two have side views. There is also a useful large dressing/store room and a family bathroom comprising a three piece suite with shower over the bath and attractive exposed feature stonework on the facing wall (can you spot the puffins?).

There is a staircase to the second floor and at the turn of the stair is the top end of a full length stained glass window which is not only a lovely feature of the property but allows a great deal of natural light onto the stairway. The final bedroom on the top floor has the benefit of two Velux windows to the front providing amazing views across Oban Bay to the islands of Kerrera, Mull and Lismore. The Lismore lighthouse and McCaigs Tower are also in view. The bedroom is spacious and well laid out with ample storage and a good sized en-suite shower room.

Externally, the garden to the front is small and easily maintained with a low granite dyke to the front. To the side there is a long driveway providing ample parking for a number of cars. There is also a covered car port. At the rear, there are steps up to a raised seating area laid to gravel with further garden ground comprising mature shrubs, trees and bushes behind. Additional storage is provided by a useful lean-to shed at the rear of the property and secondary, timber shed close by. From the kitchen, there is an external side door giving access to a completely private and enclosed paved area which would be ideal as a safe haven for children to play.
