An eight-bedroom converted steading dating back to the 18th century is for sale on the Isle of Mull for £595,000 — and you'll get a lot for your money.

The Steadings, which has been beautifully refurbished throughout, sits in an elevated and private position with uninterrupted views across to Loch Scridain.

Situated on a private corner of scenic countryside, the main house has two principle reception rooms, four bedroom and bathrooms, plus a spacious kitchen with its own breakfast bar. Adjoining this is a self-contained holiday cottage (perfect for bringing in additional income), which has two further reception rooms, three bedrooms and two spacious bathrooms.

Over in the main sitting room, restored original wooden beams run along the ceiling, while cushiony soft sofas provide a lovely spot to sink into. Period features take a nod to the home's impressive past, while modern conveniences bring it up to speed with contemporary living.

There's so much to enjoy inside. Other features worth making a fuss about include the wood-burning stove (the kind you have to light with a match, not a switch), plus the rustic AGA in the kitchen. Huge and supremely comfortable, it has all the proportions of a traditional farm steading.

The sheltered and south-facing garden, extending to 3.4 acres, includes planted borders, mixed woodland, walled gardens, and a bridge leading over an attractive burn across to an area of lawn. Gazing across rolling hills, gardens don't really get much better than this.

With a coastline of 300 miles, the local island is littered with soft sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, fishermen and thriving native trees. If the weather's on your side, head down to the local shore for a dip and then return to the house to warm up by the fire. When can we move in?

This property is currently on the market for £595,000 with Knight Frank.
