Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Ashbank is set in the scattered crofting township of Kilbride on the Isle of Skye. The property is in a beautiful setting with views from the house to Bla Bheinn and beyond to the Cuillin ridge, while both Loch Slapin and the coastal village of Elgol are just a short drive away. The nearest beach at Loch Slapin is within walking distance from the house.

The Isle of Skye is probably the best known of the Inner Hebridean islands off the west coast of Scotland. Famous for its romantic, historical associations and magnificent landscape dominated by the Cuillin mountains, the island is very popular attracting many tourists throughout the year as well as those who seek to enjoy a peaceful lifestyle in unspoilt surroundings. The area is an ideal base from which to enjoy the island with many outdoor leisure pursuits available locally including hill walking, climbing, canoeing, sailing, mountain biking, and fishing. The unspoilt countryside provides a habitat for native wildlife with regular sightings of red deer, seals, otters and birds of prey, including buzzards, golden eagles, and sea eagles.

Broadford has good amenities including a hospital and supermarket as well as hotels and restaurants. There are primary schools in both Broadford and nearby Elgol where the traditional school building sits just above the shores of the loch. Portree, the main town on the island, has a secondary school and senior school children can also attend Plockton High School on the mainland with its highly regarded traditional music school. Inverness, about 2 hours’ drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.

Ashbank, which dates from the mid-1800s, has been sensitively modernised and extended to create a family house which blends traditional features with modern-day living. The focal point of the house is the generous open plan dining kitchen where extensive use of glass fills the room with natural light and gives lovely views over the surrounding countryside. From here a hallway leads to the original portion of the house and a welcoming sitting room with a wood burning stove and door to the garden, while on the other side of the entrance hall is a double aspect study which could also be used as a bedroom. There are four bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor including the master bedroom with its double height ceiling with exposed beams and beautifully appointed en suite bathroom.
