The house boasts an enviable location on the edge of the village of Portree, with stunning views all around, and is within easy walking distance of the island capital’s amenities including a wide selection of bars, restaurants, shops and recreational pursuits.

Off road parking for several cars is provided.

The house benefits from central heating, a wood burning stove and Wifi.

The space
First Floor

To capitalise on the 360 degree hill and sea views, the house has been designed with the main open-plan living space on the first floor. A large picture window provides a relaxing place to soak in the scenery with a cozy wood-burning stove to provide warmth and atmosphere during the colder months.

The solid oak flooring and Harris tweed furniture and finishings nod to the heritage of the Western Isles and provides rustic charm to the open and airy space. A large dining table provides ample space for socialising. There is a 55 inch Smart TV, bluetooth speaker and PS4 games console provided to entertain adults and children alike.

At the opposite end of the living area is a contemporary and bright fully fitted and equipped kitchen which boasts such conveniences as a boiling water tap, ‘Tassimo’ coffee maker, electric oven, induction hob and an American style fridge freezer with water and ice dispenser.

This leads to a utility room equipped with sink, with washing machine, tumble drier and microwave. There is a small bathroom with toilet and wash hand basin accessed from the utility room.
