The Shore House is in the hamlet of Avernish close to Kyle of Lochalsh. Seldom does the opportunity arise to purchase a property in this spectacular setting with grounds that extend to the shores of Loch Alsh and with beautiful views over the loch to Eilean Donan Castle and the mountains of the Glenelg peninsula.
Kyle of Lochalsh, where the bridge crosses to Skye, offers a good range of shops and facilities as well as a railway station. There are a number of options for primary schooling and secondary schooling is available in Plockton. 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.
The west coast is famous for its unique coastline of sheltered bays, wide sandy beaches and beautiful island views with a backdrop of dramatic mountain peaks. This area has long been a popular destination and yet, just a short distance away from the busy tourist centres, the countryside offers a haven of peace where native wildlife and flora are plentiful and breathtaking views are the norm.
The design of The Shore House combines traditional features with modern technology to create an energy efficient and easily managed family house that sits comfortably in its surroundings. The well-proportioned, light filled rooms have glass walls overlooking Loch Alsh, while a ground source heat pump, high levels of insulation and solar gain keep running costs to a minimum. There is solid oak flooring with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and a wood burning stove in the sitting room which combine to make a warm and welcoming living space. The current owners have recently upgraded the property both internally and externally to create a delightful, beautifully appointed coastal house ideal as a second home or letting accommodation.
