Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Coming to the market for the first time, this striking architect designed property, offers a wonderful combination of style, character and charm in a stunning and tranquil location on Scotland’s west coast on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula. Designed as an idyllic hideaway for a couple, The Seashell succeeds in combining the natural beauty of the area with contemporary living in a completely unique way. The property – one of a portfolio of 3 being sold in the area (Aspen Lodge and Brightwater Lodge) by the same owners - has been run as a highly successful 5* holiday let but equally could be enjoyed on a more permanent basis.

As its name suggests, The Seashell follows the shape of a shell, with curved walls leading into a delightful light and airy open space in which to relax, eat and sleep. South facing floor to ceiling windows offer uninterrupted views of the countryside, Loch Sunart and the Morvern Hills beyond. The property has been constructed to make the most of natural materials including wood from local forests in the form of massive, honed tree trunks used to create a living roof and handmade curved doors. The stunning, high specification interior encompasses a wonderful array of contemporary ‘must haves’ including an elevated, double spa bath, wet room, separate shower, raised, circular open fire place, under floor heating and state of the art lighting. High quality windows and ceramic tiled flooring help keep maintenance to a minimum. Energy efficiency is also assured with an air source heat pump and solar thermal panels while the extensive use of glass maximises solar gain. Designed to blend into the surrounding landscape, The Seashell is topped with a stunning, eco friendly turf roof dotted with wild flowers. Wrapped around the house is attractive wooden cladding providing a low maintenance outer shell.
In addition to the property is a plot of land either for sale as a whole or separately following the sale of the house. The plot is approximately 0.5 acres and comes with full planning permission (ref 15/00959/ERD) for an additional dwelling house.
