Property description

A category ‘B’ listed Thomas Telford designed former church which has been divided into two semi-detached properties and is located on the popular Waternish peninsula.

Accommodation:

House 1: Ground Floor: Entrance Lobby, Hallway, Lounge/Dining Room, Kitchen & WC.

First Floor: Landing, Two Double Bedrooms (One En-Suite) & Bathroom.

House 2: Ground Floor: Entrance Lobby, Hallway, Lounge/Dining Room & Kitchen.

First Floor: Landing, Three Double Bedrooms & Bathroom.

Formerly the Waternish Parish church, this delightful category ‘B’ listed property was designed in 1829 by the renowned architect, Thomas Telford. The property was re-roofed in the 1990’s. Over the years the property has been divided to form two separate properties whilst retaining many original features including the inner porch doors and v-lined ceilings on the first floor.

One has been rented out on a longer term basis and the other has been used as a holiday let. Both are now offered with vacant possession.

The property offers the potential for a number of uses. A family home with holiday let to the side, converting to one large family home, two rental properties or possibly converting part of the property back to a shop or maybe a restaurant – subject to any necessary planning consents.

The property has double glazed windows and each house has its own solid fuel heating system by way of two multi fuel stoves in the respective lounge/dining rooms. There are also 32 solar panels on the roof which provide electricity for the property and a small income with any excess being sold to the national grid.

The garden is enclosed by a dry stone wall. There are double gates to the front of the property and ample parking to the rear via the Geary/Knockbreck township road.

To the rear of the property there are the remains of an old stone byre offering the potential for development subject to any necessary planning consents.

Location:

Dunhallin is a scattered crofting community lying midway along the popular Waternish Peninsula. Waternish is made up of a number of small crofting townships, mainly on its western side, and the whole area is full of interesting features, historical locations and enjoyable coastal and forestry walks as well as a number of craft outlets. There is Primary education locally at Knockbreck Primary School and Secondary education at Portree High School with public transport provided free of charge. There is a thriving village hall offering a wide range of community activities/events.

The area enjoys the spectacular Skye sunsets and is also designated as a ‘dark sky’ area with three dark sky viewing sites. There is also an Iron Age broch and the ruinous Trumpan Church dating back to the 14th century.

The village of Stein, which is in a conservation area, is only 3 miles away, and has a hotel/pub, the well-known Michelin star Lochbay restaurant and also a public boat slip. The nearest main centre of population is the village of Dunvegan, around 8 miles distance, which has a large modern community hall and modern medical centre, a good variety of shops and hotels and the world famous Dunvegan Castle, home of the Clan MacLeod. 

The community is served by a number of mobile facilities including mobile banks and library service. Portree, the capital of the island, is 24 miles South East and has all the facilities you would expect in a small town.
