Earlier this year, Skye was once again rated as one of the best islands in the UK.
Holidaymakers giving feedback on a well-known travel website voted the Isle of Skye into the prestigious number three slot of islands to visit thanks to its wealth of good restaurants, numerous attractions and natural beauty.
Skye is fast becoming a must-see destination but imagine how lucky you’d feel if you were able to call Skye home. Located just 14 miles from Portree, Skye’s biggest town, is Number One Earlish, a lovely property looking for a new owner.
The four-bedroom detached house offers unrivalled flexibility for work, as well as a light and spacious living area and exceptional sea views that can only be truly appreciated in person. The combination of location, size and flexibility would make this house an ideal family home or an outstanding bed and breakfast.
On the market with Bell Ingram for a guide price of £375,000, the house sits in an elevated position, and benefits from an outdoor sun terrace, commanding panoramic views over Uig Bay.
Joanne Stennett, of Bell Ingram in Inverness, said: “The space and situation of this property offers buyers the unique ability to adapt rooms to their needs, making it the ideal family home, or prime opportunity for a bed and breakfast conversion.
“The stunning views are certainly not to be missed, and the sun lounge and terrace would be the perfect place to relax during the summer months and appreciate the surrounding scenery.
“To add to the whole attractive package, One Earlish also offers the best of both worlds in terms of accessibility – boasting a peaceful, island setting while its close proximity to the thriving town of Portee and village of Uig provides the perfect mix of both urban and rural facilities. Skye is now officially one of the top three UK islands to visit, and One Earlish makes it easy to see why.”
The property is laid out over two floors and comprises separate kitchen and dining rooms, a lounge and sun lounge as well as utility and storage rooms.
Two bathrooms, one furnished with a bath, complete the lower floor. The first floor has four double bedrooms with three en suites providing exceptionally comfortable living quarters.
In addition to its picturesque location in sight of Loch Snizort and the Minch, the property is well placed for Portree and Uig where primary and secondary schools, a large supermarket and a host of visitor attractions including a brewery and an award-winning theatre and arts centre can be found.
The house is also well placed for alfresco pursuits. Uig offers pony trekking and island cruises in addition to the many walking trails and paths all over Skye.
