With views like this, the first thing you’d want to do in the morning is leap out of bed and pull back the curtains.
In fact, with no neighbours immediately nearby, and only the Sleat peninsula in front, you probably won’t need to bother with curtains.
Number 26 Camuscross, in Isleornsay on the Isle of Skye, is a lovely modern home, built on a decrofted site eight years ago.
Situated on an elevated position, it’s been designed to make the most of the views across the Sound of Sleat to Knoydart, Arnisdale and Loch Hourn on the mainland.
Even better – there’s direct access from the gardens to a lovely, sandy beach.
The house is on the market at offers over £575,000, but for that price, you get two properties for the price of one.
The versatile design of the accommodation means it comes with a self-contained one-bedroom apartment which could, if desired, be used for residential or holiday lets.
Running costs shouldn’t be high as the property is highly energy efficient with a ground-source heat pump and zoned underfloor heating, while the extensive use of glass throughout maximises both the view and solar gain.
The full accommodation includes, on the ground floor, an entrance porch and hall, stylish dining kitchen with on-trend units, a free-standing breakfast bar and spacious family area.
There’s also a bedroom, shower room and practical utility room.
Accommodation in the self-contained apartment includes a sitting room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.
Moving upstairs and there’s no doubting as to which room will be the most popular…
There’s a very large sitting room with huge floor-to-ceiling windows on one side and windows on the other which make for a beautifully bright room, while the views from here of this postcard-pretty part of Skye are just stunning.
This floor also has a big landing with study area, a bedroom with en suite shower room and a master bedroom with en suite dressing room and bathroom.
The well-appointed and tastefully decorated house is around 10 miles from Broadford, within easy reach of the Skye Bridge and Mallaig ferry and located on the popular, Sleat peninsula, which has a fabulous coastline.
The house is reached via a single-track public road, and has a driveway and parking area to the front of the house.
Outside there’s a garage with concrete floor, shelving and storage space in the rafters.
Nearby there’s lots of coastal and forestry trails, hamlets and several renowned hotels and restaurants.
There’s a raft of small islands and inlets and locally available moorings which make this property, an ideal location for the outdoor enthusiast.
