About this property

  • Glenmorven House was built in 1901 for the pier master of Onich and is one of the very few properties that were allowed to be built between the road and the sea. Glenmorven House owes its unique situation to this part of local history. Formerly Onich was a stopping off place for the steamers from Oban up the Scottish west coast at a time when the main form of transportation was by sea. If a steamer was required the pier master would run up a flag and a steamer would call in. When the steamer service stopped the house was converted to a private school until it was changed to a small hotel which operated for over 30 years. The current owners purchased the house in 1999 and transformed it from a small hotel to a wonderful private lochside seven bedroom residence. It is a detached two storey property under a Ballachulish slate roof with a single storey extension to the front featuring a stunning roof terrace which overlooks the sea loch.

    Glenmorven House sits in a generous plot surrounded by mature and manicured gardens which lead to the beach. Access to the house is via private, gated tarmac road leading to a gravel carpark in front of the house. The accommodation on the ground floor begins with an entrance hallway which leads into a beautiful reception hall. Off here is the drawing room with marble fireplace and which leads to the conservatory with magnificent views to Loch Linnhe. There is a sitting room with bay window looking across the water, and a substantial and formal dining room which also overlooks the sea. Three comfortable double en suite bedrooms can be found on this level. A modern fitted kitchen has a four oven AGA in the contemporary shade of Powder Blue at its heart, with a well equipped utility room, gym/sauna and single attached garage completing the ground floor. The upper floor accommodation comprises two en suite bedrooms, the luxurious principal bedroom suite with bathroom and separate dressing room, and an additional bedroom with fireplace currently used as a home office. There is access on the first floor to an impressive and substantial roof terrace with glazed balustrade taking full advantage of the breathtaking views.

    The grounds surrounding the property include landscaped gardens with mainly lawned areas leading to the beach where there is a private pier and slipway, making this an ideal property for a boat owner. There is also a hardwood greenhouse and hot tub.
