Welcome To The Home By The Sea

House-hunters desperate to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a tranquil life by the sea may find their dream coastal property in Seafield House.
Located in the charming, fishing village of Lochinver, the traditional, detached five bedroom property lies right on the seafront, boasting panoramic views from nearly every window and providing a bright and airy feel throughout.
To complete the whole attractive package, Seafield House – which is on the market with Inverness-based Estate Agents and Surveyors Bell Ingram for a guide price of £220,000 – is surrounded by a host of amenities, including a small Marina and busy harbour, with a selection of beautiful sandy beaches just a short drive away.
Outdoor enthusiasts will not be disappointed as Lochinver is also an excellent base for alfresco pursuits. The Suilven and Canisp mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to the village and attract many hill walkers to the area, and it is an equally popular location for bird watchers and anglers of all levels and tastes.
Seafield House would be equally suitable as a family home or holiday home, but also offers business savvy buyers sufficient space for conversion into a Bed and Breakfast to host those seeking an idyllic, seaside getaway.
Joanne Stennett, of Bell Ingram in Inverness, said: “This is a stunning property that would be the perfect purchase for city dwellers with a strong desire to swap the daily commute for a relaxing life by the sea, or for those looking for the ideal, coastal holiday home.
“With large reception rooms and five bedrooms, however, this well-presented property also offers plenty of business opportunity for buyers, and has the potential to be transformed into a Bed and Breakfast, or has equally been run as a successful holiday let in the past.
“Lochinver is a thriving village with a great sense of community spirit and truly offers the best of both worlds in terms of accessibility. Not only is this peaceful property in close proximity to a variety of shops and excellent dining options – including a Michelin-starred The Albannach Hotel – but it has the added benefit of having wilderness right on its doorstep.
“From exceptional woodland walks to unrivalled fishing and cycling opportunities, cosy pubs and even an award-winning pie shop, there is something nearby for absolutely everyone to enjoy.”
The property is laid out over three floors and compromises a welcoming reception hall on the ground floor, which leads to a comfortable lounge with traditional wood-burning stove, dining room and bathroom, with the kitchen towards the rear, overlooking the garden. The first floor has three large bedrooms and a bathroom, with a further two bedrooms located on the second floor.
Externally, Seafield House sits in a large garden which is mainly laid to lawn and is complimented by mature trees, bushes and flower beds. There is a gated parking area and the property also has two useful outside stores, one to the rear and one to the side.
Lochinver is located 30 miles from Ullapool and 86 miles from Inverness. There is a local primary school and high school education can be found in Ullapool to which a bus runs daily.
