McEwan Fraser Legal is delighted to present No7 Balemore, idyllically located on North Uist, encircled by some of Scotlands most stunning beaches and scenery. A fabulous, modernised, four-bedroom traditional stone and slate detached cottage (on a circa 0.3-acre plot).
The property is presented in a classic style with a modern twist. Inside, the simple layout of the property is its strength. Enter via the front door to a small hall; on your left is a beautifully tiled large shower room and a comfy window seat ahead of you. Turning to your right, you enter the central hub and focus of the house, an open-plan lounge (exposed beams) & kitchen diner, which provides the family living space.
The country-style kitchen is laid out ergonomically with excellent cupboard space. The kitchen has a stand-alone F/F ceramic hob, a double electric oven, and a dishwasher. Off the lounge is a large utility room with a back door that leads to the rear garden and provides an additional sink and extra storage, and houses the Grant Oil CH boiler. The conservatory is through double French doors, with excellent views of the front and rear gardens and filled with beautiful plants.
Off the kitchen, a small rear hall leads to two bedrooms; both are fitted with study bunk beds but are comfy double rooms. The charming and spacious wood-panelled family bathroom is an eclectic combination of traditional (sink/cistern) and modern bath, which completes the ground floor.
The stairs lead to two double bedrooms, as is typical with these traditional properties; a fantastic bookcase display runs up the stairwell underneath the Velux window that would satisfy any bookworm. Both bedrooms are good size doubles; neither has built-in storage, but both have velux and dormer windows. There is a small storage area on the landing.
Externally, the property has a drive to the rear of the house that offers good off-road parking (three cars) and a detached garage. The garden to the front of the property is mainly lawn and shrub border with a raised rockery bed, stone patio and table. The mature rear garden (uncommon on Uist) is a visual feast of mature trees and shrubs, a garden pond, terraced rockery and a small wildflower meadow with a beautiful private seating area perfect for family gatherings.
Moreover, the property benefits from oil central heating and double glazing, with some underfloor heating in the wet room, hall and a portion of the lounge.
No7 Balemore is a rare opportunity to acquire an island property within easy reach of Lochmaddy ferry port in excellent walk-in condition.
