Property Summary

** Available to View Now ** IVY COTTAGE, LOCHINVER, ASSYNT – A Charming Traditional Stone/Slate Detached Cottage tucked away in an easily missed larger plot/gardens, off the main seafront/harbour road that forms the heart of Lochinver Village.

Lochinver, Assynt is situated in the Highlands Region of North West Scotland, arguably one of the most scenic regions of Scotland/the UK, resplendent with its rich variety of fabulous scenery/views providing an almost magical visual feast for residents & visitors alike. Sutherland boasts an enviable array of outdoor pursuits with enthusiasts & occasional visitors alike spoilt for choice - climbing, hillwalking, fishing, bird/wildlife watching (incl' Golden Eagles), kayaking/canoeing, cycling, wild camping ...and beautiful often deserted beaches with sparkling clear water… all available to enjoy without the congestion found in areas like The Lake District in the North of England. The history & geology of Sutherland adds a further element to its immense appeal.

Lochinver itself can be described as the largest "town" north of Ullapool yet it undoubtedly has the character of a small fishing village... approx. 36 miles from Ullapool & 92 miles from Inverness. Nestling in a picturesque sheltered harbour with private houses scattered around the village/hillsides whilst the main road on which you enter the village has a useful variety of local shopping, restaurants, petrol station, post office etc with the Michelin Star Chez Rouz InverLodge Hotel overlooking the village from its highest point.

Ivy Cottage dates from circa 1890’s, owned within the same family since the late 1940’s. The original cottage has been extended in the past, currently featuring on-the-level accommodation of reception hall, lounge, dining kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom. The specification includes both electric heating & double glazing. Services include mains water, drainage & electricity. The cottage benefits from having been re-roofed in slate, circa 2007.

The competitive price allows scope for the successful purchaser to modernise the existing cottage internally or perhaps, subject to planning etc, to redevelop/extend the property utilising the large plot/gardens in which it is attractively sited. To the front boundary/entrance gate one can enjoy splendid views across the roadway to the harbour/seascape beyond.

* Please NOTE - For the avoidance of doubt, photos displayed are of the property, its gardens, Lochinver & the surrounding area and particular viewpoints.
