Description from owner

Description

The Longhouse is an architect-designed home with one of the finest views on the whole of Skye, the magical island off the north-west coast of Scotland. It's a true escape for anyone wanting to drop off the map and recharge in perfect peace and quiet.

The Longhouse is a substantial and luxurious home with four good-sized double bedrooms, two bathrooms with powerful showers and even a constant supply of pure spring water on tap from its own borehole.

The Longhouse was designed by award-winning Skye-based architects Dualchas, who believe in building traditional style homes which are appropriate to their surroundings, but which are modern in terms of their interior design.

The Longhouse is slotted into the hillside in Tokavaig, a scattering of houses on the west side of the Sleat peninsula in the south of Skye. Underfloor heating keeps the house cosy regardless of conditions outside, and the reinforced windows are capable of keeping the worst of the winds out.

The house has four double bedrooms. Two of them have kingsize beds, one is a double and the other is a twin.

One of the bedrooms is en-suite, with a bath and a power shower and a large window looking out across the land and sea. There is a second bathroom downstairs, also with both bath and power shower. The large kitchen dining room is a cook's and entertainer's delight – well stocked, with plenty of counter space, a gas hob and electric oven, large fridge freezer and a dishwasher to make the tidying up a little easier.

The floor to ceiling sliding glass doors allow constant views of Canna, Rhum and, on a clear day, even Barra. The lack of artificial light also make it one of the best places to see the stars, and often the aurora borealis.

The living room is raised a couple of steps to capitalise on the uninterrupted views west over the Cuillin mountain range. It has wood flooring, a stove for your fire, an LCD television with satellite and DVD and a CD player.

The entrance hall has a bench seat to sit and take your boots off, and plenty hanging and storage space for outdoor gear. There is also a washing machine in the hall cupboard.

The house comes with a supply of firewood. Sheets, duvets and towels are all included, as are electricity charges. There is a phone which you may use for local calls.

Please note: The Longhouse is a place to escape the stresses of modern life - and that means there's no mobile phone signal within about six miles of the house, and there's no internet access at the house - only a landline for emergencies. The thought of not accessing your email or social media might stress you out - but you should try it!
