Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is a home truly at one with its environment in an area renowned for its idyllic surroundings, wildlife and natural beauty around 8 miles North of Lochinver. Built in 2011 under NHBC warranty by Roy Homes, the property is beautifully appointed throughout and provides spacious, light and airy accommodation arranged over two levels. The house itself sits within a decrofted plot of around 1/2 of an acre and there is additional de-crofted plot of ¼ acre with additional development potential subject to the appropriate permissions. All in all the grounds extend to approximately 17 acres in total.

Designed to maximise its stunning elevated location, this wonderful home enjoys magnificent views over Clashnessie Bay, a clean, quiet and beautiful beach with a rocky inlet and renowned pink sands shore. There are views over the local countryside and beyond which include the impressive Clashnessie Falls, a fifteen meter waterfall, dropping from the lochans above.

The property is approached by a gated single track with cattle grid which leads to the front of the house and to the double garage with remote door. The specification and proportions impress immediately on entering the property with features including a distinctive Mandarin slate floor, underfloor heating throughout and engineered Oak flooring. The accommodation comprises utility room with a selection of wall and base storage units, granite worktops and a Belfast sink. This leads to a spacious dining kitchen which comes with a comprehensive range of bespoke hand-made kitchen units and integrated appliances. A door from the kitchen leads to the two large public rooms. The dining hall is bright and airy and leads into a delightful sitting room. This is the perfect place to relax, unwind and admire the surroundings, ever changing weather as well as the wave's crash onto the beach from tranquil turquoise to white foamy waves. There is a guest bedroom with en suite shower room and an integral double garage. A staircase off the utility room leads upstairs to a further bedroom with en suite shower room. This room is currently used as a study/home office and provides great flexibility and enjoys stunning views. A further separate staircase located adjacent to the dining hall leads to the first floor accommodation. The clever design of the property maximises space and has created yet another point from which to admire the view with the upper landing doubling as an open plan sitting area. There are two large bedrooms located on either side of the sitting area both with windows front and rear and plenty of storage. The spacious family bathroom has a walk in shower, bath, wash hand basin, wc and Finnolme sauna.

The property is situated in a quite stunning elevated location with magnificent views over the local countryside and beyond. The area is known for its abundance of wildlife and natural beauty and stunning coastline as well as its many magnificent mountains, Suilven, Canisp and Quinaig which are all within close proximity. The nearby village of Lochinver provides local amenities including a post office as well as a number of shops, pubs and eateries. Inverness is very much the commercial and business centre for the Highlands of Scotland and is convenient for the Airport which is located to the East of the city. The airport provides a variety of domestic and European flights. Inverness also has excellent public transport links with good bus and rail connections. For the outdoor enthusiast a wide range of pursuits including fishing, cycling, water sports, hill walking and golfing are available.

The property sits within an area of around 17 acres. The house itself is located within a de-crofted plot of around 1/2 of an acre and there is a further de-crofted area which previously had outline planning permission for another property which has since lapsed. The grounds are deer fenced and includes a large vegetable patch and polytunnel, newly planted trees and a large sun terrace.

The remainder of the grounds consist of an owner occupied croft and all interested parties are advised to make their enquiries via the Crofting Commission in relation to what this entails.
