Located on the Isle of Lewis and situated on the gentle slopes over looking Loch Roag and the Island of Great Bernera, this two bedroomed Freehold Croft Cottage would make the perfect holiday home, retirement cottage, or be ideal for a small family with the local primary school and community centre only half a mile away.
The main town of Stornoway is only 16 miles away with it's supermarkets, shops, pubs, restaurants, senior school, University/College, hospital, small marina, ferry terminal and airport. In a renowned tourist area there are lots of leisure activities to indulge in.
The property is only 1.8 miles from the world famous Callanish Stones and Visitor Centre, there are numerous local craft shops, walking and cycling routes, bird watching, sea fishing and fresh water fishing opportunities, sea kayaking, sailing with a local slipway for launching small boats, beautiful secluded sandy beaches and much more, all within easy reach. Located just off the main, two way, A858 road the property is centrally situated for easy travel, including touring of the Island of Lewis, Harris to the south and onwards to the rest of the isles of the Outer Hebrides.
Regular bus services are available too. The property also has it's own peat bank located close by for cutting of peat for fuel - free peat if you are prepared to dig it up! On approximately 1/4 acre of de-crofted freehold land, there is a sheltered safe chicken run with houses for up to 30 free range birds.
A small vegetable patch could easily be extended by a keen gardener to give family self sufficiency. None of this impacts on the garden grounds of the property which include a lawn area, patio for barbecues, pretty shrubs and picturesque burn with two wooden bridges. The open plan front drive has been landscaped in the theme of a local beach and gives loads of parking space along with two small turf roofed traditional black house style peat storage sheds, all adding to the feel of a sea side crofting life. Inside, the single story property has two full double bedrooms with built in wardrobes, open plan tiled kitchen/dining room, tiled hallway, bathroom, and spacious lounge.
A loft conversion, done most likely in the 1960's, is set up as a double bedroom and has been used as such for many years on and off by previous owners.
Although it does not comply with current building regulations, it is a light, airy, well insulated space.
Outside this converted area, the loft has large areas of useful semi floored storage space. There is ample scope for updating the loft conversion and extending the property.
