About this property

  • Fairlight is an exceptional island house built in 2017 to take full advantage of the magnificent uninterrupted open aspects over the Sound of Luing and beyond to Mull, Ardnamurchan and beyond to Jura and Colonsay. The property is architect-designed and built, and finished both externally and internally to the highest of standards. Interior finishes were enhanced by our interior designer client and include Anta furnishings, Farrow & Ball paintwork and Roger Oates carpets. Externally the villa has a slated roof with decorative slate to the outside walls with Scots larch cladding further enhancing the gables.

    There is an oil fired boiler and AGA, along with underfloor heating on the ground floor; the windows and patio doors are a Scandinavian design by Rationel.

    The accommodation on the ground floor begins with a reception hallway which leads into the open plan drawing room with patio doors opening onto a fantastic landscaped decking area. The contemporary fitted kitchen/dining room with pewter AGA and sleek minimalist cabinetry works seamlessly with the living space. Completing the ground floor is a study with doors to the garden; a double bedroom with en suite; utility room, sun room and cloakroom/WC.

    The first floor accommodation is set off a landing with seating area and consists of the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing area; a second sitting room with woodburner, which could be used as bedroom 4, an additional bedroom, cloakroom/wc and a shower room.

    The surrounding gardens extend to about a third of an acre and are a credit to the current owners, offering a wide variety of plants and shrubs with a landscaped decking area to the front of the property creating the perfect spot from which to enjoy the spectacular sea views. The carefully tended landscaped garden to the rear includes a pond, raised beds and walled surrounds.

    In the rear garden, there is a workshop/design studio with power and water which is ideal for home working.

Local information

  • Fairlight has a superb island location with magnificent views across the Sound of Luing to the Isle of Mull, the Garvellachs, Scarba, Ardnamurchan,and beyond to Jura and Colonsay.The house sits within a few metres of the shore on the west coast of this former slate quarrying island which is served by a shop, post office,2 village halls, and a Heritage centre with café. The island offers excellent walking, fishing and sailing and is a haven for wildlife. Otters, dolphins and sea eagles are regular visitors.
  • The property is situated within the delightful conservation village of Cullipool. Until the mid 1960s, the village was one of three locations on the island where slate was quarried before being despatched by boat for use as roofing material across the world. Pretty whitewashed cottages that were once home to the quarry workers still populate the village, whilst the imposing slate walls of the disused quarries provide a dramatic backdrop. In the centre of the village is the island's community hall, which regularly hosts events for locals and visitors, including ceilidhs, concerts and plays. On the outskirts of Cullipool, the pier provides an ideal launch point for a tender.
  • Luing is probably the most accessible of all the Western Isles with a ferry service every 30 minutes during normal operating times. The regular car ferry service across Cuan Sound, taking less than five minutes, connects Luing to Easdale and the mainland. Oban (17 miles) has a good range of shops and professional services as well as secondary schooling and a railway station with regular services to Glasgow. Oban is also the ferry terminal to the Western Isles and a base for sailing. Connel has a small airfield and Glasgow Airport has regular connections to London and a variety of domestic and international destinations.
