Kilbeg House is an attractive family home set in one of the finest positions on the Isle of Skye with unrestricted views over the Sound of Sleat to Mallaig, Knoydart and Moidart on the mainland. The area is known nationally as the Garden of Skye for its comparative fertility, low lying coastal position and milder climate, benefiting from the Gulf Stream and protected by the Cuillin hills. The property has direct access to a beautiful and secluded sandy beach and the owners have a mooring in the bay. This shoreline is a haven for wildlife with regular sightings of whales, porpoises, dolphins and otters.
Kilbeg House was originally built in 1982 and has been sensitively extended and developed to create a light and spacious family home set within magnificent surroundings. Well appointed ground floor reception rooms are intimate enough for family living whilst also allowing for large scale entertaining. The interior of the house is in immaculate condition, constructed to the highest standards of insulation. Decoration is restful and calming with recently tiled shower rooms incorporating quality features including underfloor heating.
The beautiful grounds at Kilbeg House extend to approximately 2.6 acres. From stone gateposts with electrically operated gates a tarmac drive with lighting from overhead street lamps, bordered by a variety of shrubs and bushes slopes gently to a generous brick paved turning and parking area at the entrance and rear of the house. The front garden is laid mainly to lawn fringed and interspersed with trees and shrubs while immediately around the house are paved and terraced areas for outdoor seating with gravel paths with low stone walling and well established borders. The property is sheltered and with the benefit of the Gulf Stream has been planted with specimen trees and shrubs providing colour and form throughout the year. To the west of the house a wooden bridge crosses a stream with attractive water loving plants flowing from a raised stone pond. A gate in the boundary fence leads to the shoreline and sandy beach.
