Aite Sithiel.... Gaelic for Peaceful Place.
Step inside with our HD Property Video Tour....
This amazing property is surrounded by historical buildings, magnificent mountains, tumbling rivers, rich sea-lochs and bountiful wildlife. Kingsburgh House, hidden by trees just beyond the bottom of Aite Sithielâs garden was the family home of Allan Macdonald, who married Flora Macdonald in 1750. It was here, in 1746, that the fugitive Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed a night before continuing to Raasay. The prince was met with a most cordial reception and he indulged himself in a cheerful glass with his worthy hosts as they banqueted into the night.
Commanding an elevated position, Aite Sithiel is located in the historical crofting township of Kingsburgh. From the minute you enter the warm and welcoming reception hallway you quickly realise that this is a rare opportunity to purchase a generously proportioned and exceptionally well-presented home which is a real credit to the current owner.
A gated entrance offers access to a gravel courtyard which affords parking for several vehicles. Manicured lawns, mature shrubs and decorative planting compliment the property beautifully.
The charming lounge is a fine sized room with patio doors allowing you to fully appreciate the views of Loch Snizort Beag. This exceptionally bright and airy room offers access to a superb dining kitchen via glass panel doors which also allows natural light to engulf the lounge.
The dining kitchen is impressively spacious with patio doors leading to the courtyard. Copious high-quality wall and floor mounted mahogany style units offer excellent storage and are complimented beautifully by the contrasting granite effect worktops. The kitchen also boasts a six-ring gas cooker with double oven and hood. Integrated appliances include fridge, freezer and dishwasher. This fabulous accommodation also benefits from a separate utility room with space for a plumbed in washing machine, work top, stainless steel sink and drainer and a double-glazed door which offers access to the rear of the property.
Two beautifully presented double bedrooms are located on the ground level with the master having an en-suite shower room. A family bathroom with three-piece white glazed stylish sanitary ware has been immaculately presented. Storage throughout the home is excellent and the electric heating system gives the rooms a lovely warmth.
Skye is a very popular tourist destination and holiday accommodation is hard to come by in peak season. Aite Sithiel has a self-contained apartment on the top floor which is currently generating a good income. An exterior staircase leads you to a balcony with fabulous views of the loch and garden. The apartment is accessed from the balcony via a double-glazed door. Upon entering, you are greeted by an open-plan kitchen / lounge which is flooded by natural light from the large window formations on the roof. This superbly bright and spacious area is further complimented by a wood burning stove for those cosy nights in. The expansive bedroom with walk in wardrobes and roll top bath has a luxurious feel. The shower room with large walk in shower and elegant sanitary ware can be accessed via the bedroom and the lounge area.
The configuration of this property can be very easily changed. Only a plasterboard partition at the top of the internal staircase separates the ground floor dwelling from the upper level apartment.
