Rarely available waterfront site new to market
Located off the A816 Lochgilphead to Oban road, 16 miles south of Oban, Melfort Pier and Harbour is described as a “thriving business” which has been developed by the current owners over the past 25 years.
Set over 4.5 acres, the waterfront site which has views down Loch Melfort offers a private harbour with 150ft of floating docks, two private beaches, three slipways, 20 deep water moorings, an “ancient” pier, as well as 13 Scandinavian-style holiday homes.
The holiday homes are said to be a mix of one, two and three-bedroom houses, all of which feature saunas and spa baths; the self-catering holiday business is said to trade well throughout the year, with good levels of occupancy all year round.
Additional income is generated through the moorings and harbour berths.
Other facilities on-site include a reception area, laundry room, stores, workshop facilities and staff quarters comprising five double bedrooms, three kitchens and two lounge areas.
Euan MacCrimmon, an associate in Strutt & Parker’s Inverness office, said that “the cliché ‘must-see’ is over-used but is absolutely applicable here”.
“This is a really exciting opportunity for someone looking for a major lifestyle change,” he said.
“It offers a superb real estate investment but equally it is a destination in itself for a buyer looking for an income source in idyllic surroundings. Opportunities like this do not come up very often.”
Offers over £2.9 million are sought for Melfort Pier and Harbour.
