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.
The house is in a crofting township that lies scattered along the road that leads to a beautiful headland of white sandy beaches, fertile machair, coastal walks and a historic ruined chapel. The coastline is dotted with beaches ranging in size from the small to the 3 miles wide Luskentyre and Scarista beaches, all with stunning views over clear blue seas to the neighbouring islands of the Outer Hebrides. Walks to the beaches are along the paths and tracks that crisscross the machair, the fertile low-lying ground along the coast which is abundant with wildflowers and birdlife.
Nearby Leverburgh has a shop and primary school, while secondary schooling is available in Tarbert. Stornoway, about a 1.5 hours’ drive away, has a wider range of shops and facilities along with its airport and ferry terminal.
The house is a traditional former croft house which is coming to the market for the first time in 80 years. The property was fully modernised about 20 years ago and since then has been very well maintained with full interior refurbishment and exterior painting less than five years ago.
The house has comfortable and well laid out accommodation with two double aspect reception rooms, both with open fires, on the ground floor as well as a fitted kitchen and bathroom with bath and walk-in shower, and three bedrooms and a further bathroom on the first floor. The rooms are spacious and filled with light and there are glimpsed views to Scarista beach from the bedrooms.
