Property description

Situated in an elevated position and enjoying commanding view across open hills to the sea beyond, West Horizon is a luxurious modern family home and wonderful lifestyle opportunity. It will appeal to those purchasers looking for a peaceful Highland retreat and equally those looking for a property with an existing holiday letting business and source of income.

This impressive package has been thoughtfully designed to make the most of its stunning position. It provides spacious, light-filled accommodation, coupled with a contemporary finish throughout.

The main house is entered via the hallway leading to a large triple aspect L-shaped kitchen/sitting/dining room. With its high vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and use of glass, this part of the house is flooded with natural light, providing stunning views and double doors open up directly onto the terrace. The kitchen has a great selection of units and integrated appliances. There is a large loft space above the kitchen.

The accommodation is completed by a spacious triple aspect principal bedroom with built-in storage and a large en suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms, one with a useful en suite cloakroom, and a modern family bathroom with bath, twin sinks and separate walk-in shower.

The detached cottage sits adjacent to the main house and is as equally as impressive with a modern design and layout. It comprises open plan sitting room/kitchen, double bedroom with en suite, wc/cloak and boot/utility room.

West Horizon has been running as a holiday let since July 2019, providing guests with an unforgettable holiday experience in extremely well equipped and luxurious surroundings. The current owners have let the main house out and stayed in the cottage, however there are endless opportunities and options. It has proved to be a very popular and relaxing holiday destination. As such, the property is available as a going concern or as a family home, and can be sold fully furnished if required, subject to separate negotiation. Further details are available on request or at
Situated in a small hamlet of scattered cottages, West Horizon occupies an unspoilt secluded position in an area renowned for hill walking and climbing. The pretty sand and stone beach of Balchladich is just 450 yards away, a walk further along the lane to Stoer Lighthouse, a dramatic promontory offering the potential to spot porpoises and Minke whale are just some of the wonderful things to do. The area is a haven for wildlife, with regular sightings of deer, osprey, eagles, seals and otters, all overlooked by the dramatic peaks of Suilven, Stac Pollaidh, Canisp, Quinag and Ben More Assynt which dominate the nearby skyline. There are also numerous sandy beaches together with additional outdoor pursuits including sailing, kayaking, mountain biking and fishing.

The nearby hamlet of Clachtoll has a small shop and café while the pretty fishing village of Lochinver offers more comprehensive day-to-day amenities including boutique shopping, cafés, two public houses and a good selection of restaurants.

The area offers a good range of state schooling including Lochinver Primary School, Scoraig School and Kinlochbervie High School.

The property is approached over a concrete and part-gravelled, gated forecourt which provides parking for multiple vehicles. To the side and rear, the enclosed garden is laid mainly to level lawn and offers a large part-covered wraparound terrace and a summer house with a bar area. The large elevated terrace has a sunken spa hot tub, the perfect spot to relax, unwind and enjoy the incredible views across uninterrupted countryside to the sea beyond. There are two useful garden sheds, one is 10ft x 8ft and fully insulated, and the other is 14ft x 4ft plus there is an 8ft hexagonal greenhouse.
