No 5 Drumfearn Croft is in the crofting township of Drumfearn on the Sleat peninsula on Skye. The property is on an elevated site with spectacular views over its own land to the surrounding countryside of moorland and mountains.The Isle of Skye is the best known of the Inner Hebridean islands off the west coast of Scotland. Famous for its romantic, historical associations and magnificent landscape dominated by the Cuillin Mountains, the island is very popular attracting many tourists throughout the year as well as those who seek to enjoy a peaceful lifestyle in unspoilt and beautiful surroundings. The Sleat peninsula is known as the garden of Skye due to its more hospitable climate and gentler landscape than the more rugged north of the island. This area with its many coastal and forestry trails, small islands and inlets, makes an ideal location for walking, mountain biking, kayaking and sailing, and is rich in wildlife with otters, golden eagles, red deer and dolphins regularly spotted. Loch Eishort, with its stunning views to the Cuillin Mountains, is a popular anchorage for sailors and is a short walk from the house.Broadford has a good range of shops and facilities including a primary school while a wider range of amenities and secondary schooling are available in Portree about twenty four miles away. Inverness, about a 2 hours’ drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.The property comprises a decrofted house set in approximately 0.5 acres of decrofted garden ground, an owner occupied croft extending to about 9.39 acres with a share in common grazings and an apportionment of approximately 18 acres which is part of a forestry scheme. In addition, there is a two bedroom chalet which is a highly successful holiday let, averaging 90% occupancy and with many repeat bookings.The decrofted house was completed in 2003 and has well laid out family accommodation with an open plan living area, and bedrooms on both the ground and first floors.
