Corry House is a beautifully appointed, modern holiday home, set in a private location on the hills above Fishnish bay, on the Isle of Mull’s east coast.
A driveway winds up towards the house where there is a large parking area and an extensive garden to welcome you. It's easy to see on arrival that Corry House is designed to make the best of its location, with large windows framing the spectacular views over the sea and surrounding hills. Please note; a block of spruce forestry on the hill behind the property have since been felled.
An alcove entrance leads to a hall with plenty of storage and an adjoining utility room. From this hall you enter the main ground floor area; a spacious double height kitchen come dining space with a wall of windows looking over the rear patio and gardens, where a waterfall tumbles to a pool on one side. This fantastic space has got a real wow factor and is the hub of this family home.
The kitchen is of a very high specification with a gorgeous slate work surface; quality appliances and an excellent range of cookware. This makes it a pleasure to prepare a meal in, and the lighting can be adjusted to suit the mood while the table is set. The windows can be covered with blinds as required to create a cosy feel on darker evenings.
Set on the same ground floor level as the kitchen dining space is a small sitting area, ideal for coffee and a chat; playing games and planning the day's adventures. Younger children are well catered for with a good selection of toys and books and a television too. The large windows can be slid open to access the garden patio on sunny days. Also on this level are two bedrooms, one with twin beds and another with a queen sized double and single bed. Both bedrooms are well furnished. Located in the hall by the bedrooms is a bathroom with steam shower unit, hand basin. w.c. and bidet.
Stairs lead up to the main living room; a beautiful room with stunning sea views from the huge windows looking toward a panoramic view of the bay, with mainland Scotland beyond. Guests will enjoy the ever-changing visual display, depending on what mood the sea and weather present. Comfortable seating is provided and the range of games and books is excellent. A modern and efficient wood burner provides a great focal point, and double doors lead to a balcony so you can enjoy the sea breeze and views.
A second staircase descends from the kitchen dining area to the lower level where you find the master bedroom suite, a huge room with lovely views, abundant storage, sitting area, and double doors leading to its own patio area. A door leads to the large en-suite bathroom with a luxurious double-ended bath tub, basin, large shower unit, bidet and w.c.
At the top of the main staircase is a sitting area and office space leading via a corridor to another king sized double bedroom and bathroom with w.c. basin and bath with shower over. Again, the rooms feel luxurious and comfortable so that everyone staying in the property will feel at home.
Guests staying at Corry House will appreciate the warmth and light of this modern holiday house, and its central location, which make it an excellent base for exploring all areas of the island.
