A rare opportunity to acquire an attractive 10.2 acre coastal development site with open sea views, woodlands, stream and sheltered backdrop in a situation of great natural scenic beauty on the shores of Loch Melfort.
The site extends to about 10.2 acres in all and comprises a gently sloping field to permanent pasture, with open sea views an area of mixed woodland with the passing stream Abhainn Na Cille.
The site is at the very head of Loch Melfort which is a location of great natural scenic beauty. To the south-west is a beautiful sea scape view stretching down the sea loch and to the east the hills behind Kilmelford which provide a scenic backdrop as well as sheltering and protecting the village.
The site is located to the rear and either side of the Kilmelford Village Hall and forms an infill site between well established private housing and a more recent development of housing to the East. The permanent pasture is to the western side and the woodland to the eastern side and through which the Abhainn Na Cille stream flows and where it reaches the tidal plain at the rear of the small village fire station.
Kilmelford is on the main tourist route from Lochgilphead to Oban on the A816. The area is scenically beautiful and accordingly has always drawn tourists to the district. The Loch Melfort marina now increasingly brings yachtsmen to the village.
The site is zoned as a potential development area within the local development plan (PDAA4008).
The availability of the services have not been checked, however, it is assumed that the local area and nearby housing, benefit from mains electricity, water, drainage and telecoms.
