Sealladh Alainn is in the crofting township of Seilebost on the west coast of Harris. The property has spectacular views, with the white sandy beaches of Seilebost and Luskentyre in the foreground looking over the pristine blue tidal waters of Luskentyre Bay and the Sound of Taransay to Ben Luskentyre and the mountains of North Harris. There is direct access from the garden to the beach and at the eastern end the sand gives way to dunes and machair with beautiful coastal walks.
The island of Lewis and Harris is in the Outer Hebrides and the largest island in Scotland. A place of diverse landscapes, fascinating history and a strong cultural heritage, the island is the ultimate get away from it all destination. Stornoway is the main town and has a good range of shops and facilities including its ferry terminal with daily sailings to Ullapool and airport with regular flights to the mainland. Tarbert, about 9 miles away from Seilebost, has a ferry terminal to Uig on Skye as well as a secondary school and useful local shops, whilst a mobile grocery van comes to the gate on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Sealladh Alain is a contemporary house sensitively designed to sit comfortably in its surroundings and to take advantage of its stunning setting. The open plan ground floor is beautifully appointed but understated, its clean lines allowing the views to take centre stage, while the extensive use of glass extends the sense of space into the landscape. The entrance porch leads to the open plan living space with hall, sitting area, dining area and kitchen with French oak flooring with under floor heating on the ground floor. There is a corner wood burning stove giving a focal point for the sitting area, while the dining table is positioned by the sliding doors which open to the decked terrace that wraps round two sides of the house. The fitted Porcelanosa kitchen is of the highest quality with built-in Miele appliances and porcelain worktops. A study, shower room with Porcelanosa fittings, and a plant room complete the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor landing has a spacious sitting area with a wood pellet stove and Velux windows. The double aspect master bedroom is filled with light and has a dressing room which, subject to the necessary consents, could be converted to an en suite. There are two further bedrooms and a bathroom with walk-in shower with Porcelanosa fittings and tiling.
