The lounge looks out on to the mature gardens and contains a comfortable sofa and armchairs facing a cream enamel wood-burning stove. There is also a well-stocked bookcase and record player with some vinyl from days gone by. There is no tv in the property.


The formal dining room is situated at the front of the house. Its dual aspect windows look out on to the front garden and towards the woodland adjacent to Dundarroch Road. The antique oak dining table comfortably seats 10. The focal point of the room is a beautiful green enamel wood-burning stove which sits on a Caithness slate hearth, set in to the granite fireplace.

Dining Room

The kitchen has been recently refurbished and is fitted with an electric AGA for cooking. The units are ash, hand built by local cabinetmaker Steven Stuart, and further enhanced with a free-standing ash larder cupboard from Chalon. The kitchen is fitted with dishwasher, fridge freezer and wine cooler. A wood-burning stove provides additional warmth for cold evenings.

A separate study is located next to the kitchen.

A separate utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer and pulley over a belfast sink is just off the kitchen.

The back door leads directly to the boot room which is ideal for hanging coats and removing boots before entering the house. It has underfloor heating under a slate floor to make sure that wet boots are dry for the next day. 

There is a downstairs cloakroom with WC

French Doors from the kitchen lead to the rear garden and patio with outside seating and dining table. Ideal for summer 'al fresco' dining activities. Access to the outbuildings are not included in the let.
