Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Traditional two bedroom croft house in the tranquil location of Scoraig with croft land available to enable the purchaser to set up a smallholding

The sale includes a de-crofted stone cottage and its three-quarter acre garden which is known as Ali Shornets, together with an associated one and a quarter acre croft behind the rear of the cottage which is known as 6 Lotts of Scoraig.

Ali Shornet’s is a traditional stone-built crofting cottage whose external structure has been extensively renovated, including a new insulated roof, Velux sky-lights, additional windows in the West Wall, and double-glazed PVC windows throughout.

The cottage has a semi-fitted kitchen with bottled gas cooking facilities, and hot and cold running water supplied by a solid fuel Rayburn cooker/boiler: the latter feeds a hot water storage tank that also supplies a wash hand-basin facility in the East Bedroom (see attached floorplan). Both the East and West Bedrooms, and the landing, have modern fitted storage units. The small middle room is at present used as a general- purpose store, but clearly has the potential to be converted into a family bathroom, including an internal toilet. The downstairs West Room has a wood-burning stove, which makes it into a comfortable lounge area.

The cottage has an adjoining byre, whose eastern section has been renovated to provide a modern self-contained studio unit for accommodating guests. This has a fitted kitchen facility with a bottled-gas cooking hob, and a modern sink with cold running water, but with the provision of readily adding a supplementary gas or electric hot-water heater. There is also a wood burning stove. There is also a sleeping loft.

Note: No consents are in place for the renovation.

The mid-section of the byre accommodates a flushed toilet that discharges into a purpose-built septic tank: this facility is currently shared by the occupants of both the house and the byre studio.
This mid-section of the byre also serves as a general storage area for garden equipment.

The internal structure of the cottage has been partially renovated over the years.
Such a project could be achieved by either using local tradesmen living on the peninsula, or as an exciting DIY project. In summary, there is the potential to create a modernised cottage in a unique and idyllic setting.
