Now a rare chance to buy into the cheery, rainbow-hued Main Street of Tobermory on the isle of Mull has arisen.
Number 27, a former bank building, boasts stunning sea views and sits in a “highly sought after location”, estate agents CKD Galbraith said.
The property has latterly been a successful bed and breakfast in the busy, picture postcard town popularised by children’s television show Balamory.
The seven-bedroom house, which fronts directly onto the harbour, has a three-bedroom annexe affording extra space for guests.
CKD Galbraith said the property, which is on the market for offers over £395,000, was an “exceptional investment opportunity”.
A spokesman said: “Situated in Mull’s principle town of Tobermory with its famous painted houses overlooking the harbour, 27 Main Street is an imposing former bank which was operated by its previous owners as a successful guest house for many years.
“The property has since benefited from an extensive programme of renovation and refurbishment by the current owner to create a very stylish and contemporary luxury guest house or bed and breakfast over three floors.
“Number 27 Main Street enjoys a superb aspect with the picturesque Tobermory harbour directly to the front of the property and is conveniently close to the town’s shops, restaurants, cafés, distillery and other local attractions.
“It has been designed to appeal to the growing number of visitors looking for high end accommodation and is one of only a few in the town to provide this.”
Nicky Archibald, who is handling the sale of Number 27 at CKD Galbraith, added: “Demand for high end accommodation is on the increase on Mull which this property offers and in a spectacular location.
“Tobermory continues to be a popular destination for newcomers keen to embrace island living and the life style it offers but with all the benefits and convenience of good, local services and excellent schooling.”
