Situated on the beautiful Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, this exciting property is close to the island’s east side, near Loch Liurboist. The property is in a settlement of similar buildings near a well-maintained road, and is only minutes from the ferry to the mainland.

Constructed in 1930, 11 New Holdings has a tarmac drive and lawn to the front, enclosed with wire fencing and surrounded by grass.

With a 104 m2 interior area and an attached store, the property makes good use of the space. It is solidly built and has retained many original features.

A large vestibule opens into a hallway lined with a wooden wainscot. The living room has a stone fireplace, a wood-burning stove, and a view of the open countryside.

The large kitchen is fitted on three sides with timber door walls and floor cabinets, an LPG hob and range, integrated dishwasher, fridge and a pair of windows providing good natural light. The layout is generous and allows for a dining table and chairs.

A ground-floor bedroom offers a cosy space and is adjacent to the tiled bathroom, which has a bath, a separate shower enclosure, a wash hand basin, and a WC.

A carpeted timber staircase leads to the two bedrooms. The principal bedroom is very generous, and is decorated with floral wallpaper on one wall, a red carpet, and a deep window with a pleasant view.

The second bedroom is deeply coombed and has potential as an attractively shaped attic bedroom. Both rooms have fantastic views of the open country surrounding the house and of distant lochs.

An attached store is to the side of the property, providing using storage or could even utilized as a workspace depending on usage.

11 New Holdings is a unique property with good proportions and a spectacular location. It is brimming with character and offers considerable potential as a home for those who appreciate peace and the natural environment or as investment potential.

About the Outer Hebrides

Iconic, stunningly beautiful, magical and picture postcard perfect, the Outer Hebrides are the envy of the world,

Renowned for the colours of beaches and water, which are usually only found in paintboxes, the area is famous for attracting visiting artists and those looking to enjoy the peace and quiet natural landscape a little off the beaten track.

Despite the feeling of being part of another world, the islands around the Hebrides are easily accessible. They can be reached by sea and road, with the journeys taking only a few hours from the centre of Inverness to the Isle of Lewis.

While remote, the Outer Hebrides still enjoy many modern comforts, including supermarkets and a community hospital, both of which can be found on Lewis. There are also several schools throughout the islands, and sports and recreation facilities are plentiful, including leisure centres, swimming pools, and a mobile library.

At over 3,000 km2, this is a large area. But, given its unique location and the perception of being somewhere far from the rest of the world, it has a strong community and some surprisingly large settlements, including the second-largest town in Scotland.

The Outer Hebrides is a fabulous home or place of retreat for anyone who enjoys rich and fascinating marine and natural history, exquisite beaches, and the idea of living in a spectacular, dramatic part of Scotland.
