West Lodge is a former gate lodge to Roshven House, located in a spectacular setting, between mountains and the sea, in a magical hamlet on the west coast of Scotland the most western point of the UK mainland. The cottage, circa 1860, is presumed to have been designed by the original owner of Roshven House, Jemima Blackburn, a respected Victorian water colourist. The sale of West Lodge and its land, including 3 outstanding building plots, offers a rare chance to acquire a unique property with development potential in an unspoilt and sought after area of the UK. Much of this region is protected and development opportunities are restricted to maintain its spectacular landscape, small communities and natural habitat.
West Lodge has been renovated and extended by the current owner to create an exquisitely perfect home, equalled only by its breathtakingly beautiful surroundings of native woodland, loch frontage and stunning views across Loch Ailort to the islands of Eigg, Rum and Muck. The three rounded gables of the lodge cottage have created a unique and endearing property while its immaculately presented interior provides delightful and extremely comfortable one bedroom accommodation. Around the cottage, the charming garden has been carefully planted with coastal loving plants, its outer edges blending with the heather and birch of the surrounding ground. Paths lead through the plantings to sheltered sitting areas which look across the land to the loch.
The land at West Lodge extends to approximately 5.14 hectares (12.7 acres) and goes down to the shores of Loch Ailort where moorings are available from The Crown Estate. While the property is available as a whole, planning consent has been granted for 3 separate dwellings within the grounds, each apportioned a generous area of land with loch frontage. These sites are also available separately. The proposed siting of each house has been carefully considered to take advantage of the stunning views whilst also minimising impact on the landscape, West Lodge and the neighbouring properties.
