DESCRIPTION
The Main House
The main house, which was built in 2012, was designed by the owners in collaboration with
the architect, Chris Davenport. The property has a very high standard of accommodation, its
understated interior using natural finishes throughout including granite, limestone and solid oak which complement the exterior setting and create a sense of calm. The property is energy efficient with the benefits of excellent insulation and solar gain. The beautiful open plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen is the focal point of the house and is both spacious and intimate. The sitting room fireplace has a striking dry stone wall surround, while french windows from here and the dining area extend the sense of space to the terrace which runs along the front of the house. The contemporary kitchen is set back from the living area to create a subtle division of the room. There is a winter sitting room/family room off the dining area and a study/bedroom with french doors opening to the sunken courtyard garden.

A craftsman built oak staircase with oak panelling and stained glass window leads to the first floor
where there is a generous master bedroom with en suite bathroom, three further bedrooms, one
en suite and a family bathroom. All of the bedrooms are double aspect, filling the rooms with light
and giving stunning views over the gardens and surrounding hills.

Taigh Seanair is a garage conversion which lies adjacent to the lodge. The house has just been
completed and has a beautifully presented interior with high quality finishes throughout. Originally
conceived as family accommodation, Taigh Seanair offers potential as a 5* holiday let for which
there is great demand in this popular tourist area. The living accommodation is semi-open plan with a spacious and light-filled dining kitchen with
walk through leading to the sitting room with cathedral ceiling, wood burning stove and bi-fold
sliding doors opening to the flagstone and gravel garden. There is an en suite bedroom on the
ground floor, while the first floor has two bedrooms, one with a dressing room and a separate
shower room.

Taigh Seanair is sold fully furnished.
