'The painted floor with water lilies provide a real wow factor. The open plan kitchen is striking and again finished to very high standard indeed. The Siematic kitchen units look great and added are top quality appliances from Smeg, and Miele in keeping with the quality in the rest of the house'. 'There is a comprehensive range of crockery, cutlery and glassware added. De Longhi de Luxe bean to cup machine for coffee/latte's lover's. EU Boom Speaker for connecting to your bluetooth devices.The downstairs bedroom with an ensuite power shower of high quality, toilet and fantastic artwork has comfortable underfloor heating. Top quality standards of cleanliness noted throughout with clear attention to detail' Light the wood burning stove and install yourselves in one of the the window seats with a cup of tea. The hours will be passing by watching the skies and seeing the colour of the waters change from dark grey to turquoise blue. Probably you'll see a Seal popping up it's head, definitely many Gannets will be diving for their food in the distance. A telescope in the house allows you to watch them from close by. After long beach walks, it is great to take a bath in the large Double Jacuzzi bubbling away, maybe with some bubblies on the side too, or enjoying the infrared Sauna for more wellness. The large shower is decorated with Sea wildlife. The House has a large homy luxury kitchen of course with a dishwasher, a coffee machine, wood burning stove, large LED TV, DVD player, wifi and designer leather furnishings. Go through the front hall with toilet and you'll find the large luxury lounge with Castle fireplace and another wood burning stove, lovely seatings with again window seats to enjoy the amazing sea views and stairs going up to the bedrooms with ensuite bathroom. Hebridean wild life you'll see in Sea View House, we have commissioned a local professional artist whom painted beautiful waterlilies on the bathroom floor. Puffins have found a spot over the bed. Highland mum and calf are in the Machair full of wild flowers looking at you from a large mural in the lounge, whilst a real size 'Famous' Grouse might watch you enjoying a whisky from the Harris distillery hiding next to the Castle fire place.. Upstairs, the large master bedroom under the eaves with a super kingsize bed with memory foam mattress, double marble washbasin and further an ensuite bathroom with a Double Jacuzzi, large Shower, infra red Sauna for 2 are adding to a feel of wellness for a completely relaxing stay.. The velux windows are placed high for privacy and having stunning views towards the Uists. Downstairs at the back we have built another quality bedroom with ensuite shower room, looking out over the ocean, benefitting from lovely light coming in. The ever changing light on the water, you will hear the call of the Seals as they have a 'pecking' order which male has the best rock when the tide is rising. A huge male Otter living near the house, sourcing his food at the old jetty in front of the house, wildlife around you, just relax.... More

About the neighbourhood
Sea View house is located at a perfect spot to explore the amazing west coast of Harris. Harris is one of Europe’s last undeveloped ocean locations and high on the list for having the most beautiful beaches in the world. This unique house is built by Harris’ best stonemason building it in a special pattern of the Lewisian Gneiss, Precambrian metamorphic rock and is located 20 m. from the oceanfront. The specially designed window seats were made of the old V-lining combined with driftwood. You love it seeing the dynamic weather patterns altering the Atlantic from calm waters, to a stirring wild storm with high waves rolling on and then hitting the shore.
Getting around
Information about the surroundings: Strond/Sranna in Gaelic is surrounded by some of Britain’s most beautiful and unspoilt beaches. Great for beach- and hill walking, surfing, mountain biking and fishing, the way unwind and relax. The nearest beach is just a five-ten drive from the cottage, one of many famous beaches. Golf 9 min. drive away. The house is a detached house overlooking the tidal waters of the ocean. The waters between South Harris and the Uists consist of many little islands, all remote are habited by a large variety of birds, seals and is named the Sound of Harris. Last winter a pilot whale and Arctic Beluga washed ashore and in summer a Minky whale calf was trapped in the harbour with many kayakers we guided her out:-)
