Situated on a prime site, with a panoramic view which takes in the Western Isles, Loch Dunvegan and the Cuillin, the sale of The Longhouse offers a rare and unique opportunity to purchase a detached dwellinghouse designed by Rural Design, Architects. Completed in 2008, the property presents a contemporary version of the traditional Scottish longhouse and was designed to offer a superb modern home, created to take full advantage of its position with expansive windows to the breath-taking views.

In excellent order throughout and beautifully presented, internally the property has been specifically designed to create a fantastic, flexible living space and enjoys well proportioned rooms. Benefitting from NorDan windows and doors, double glazing, air source heat pump central heating and a mechanical heat exchange and ventilation system, the property boasts many fantastic features including Siberian larch flooring, exposed Douglas Fir beams and columns, modern bathroom suites with electric underfloor heating and redwood internal doors to name but a few. The bright open-plan lounge area, which offers a fantastic HWAM wood burning stove set on slate tiles, fitted shelving and tremendous picture windows to the views, also gives access to two double bedrooms and a winter garden, with its vaulted glass ceiling and patio doors, creating a real feeling of being outside.
