Carsaig House is situated in a prime elevated position above Carsaig Bay with outstanding views to the west over the bay to Jura, on a coastline which is famous for its fabulous sunsets.
Carsaig House occupies an elevated position which is reached by a sweeping private drive from the bay. The house was built in 1900 for the Sheriff of Edinburgh and was designed to take advantage of the magnificent views to the west.
The property has been sensitively refurbished and extended by our clients to create a wonderful family home. Set over three floors, the property offers a flexible layout ideal for family living and entertaining, with modern fixtures and fittings complementing a host of period features.
A recently added entrance vestibule opens into the main hallway, which in turn gives access to the main living accommodation. The principal reception rooms are on the ground floor. The drawing room and library are situated to the front of the property, both with doors to the balcony which offers wonderful views over Carsaig Bay. A newly installed bespoke fitted kitchen is at the heart of the property. There is a fantastic breakfasting island, Miele appliances and plenty of space for a dining table and chairs. A utility room and store are located off the kitchen. An Impressive sun room is located to the rear of the property with windows on the sides offering a wonderful aspect over the gardens.

The master bedroom is located on the first floor and has a beautiful outlook over the gardens and the bay. There is a spacious en suite with a separate bath and shower cubicle. Three further bedrooms share a family bathroom, again with a separate bath and shower cubicle.

The property benefits from a number of useful outbuildings. The stone built boat shed, which can accommodate a 20ft boat, has its own access meaning it could potentially be converted to form additional accommodation, subject to the necessary consents, if it was not required to house a boat. The bothy has been converted into a good sized gym. There is a dry cellar which encompasses the footprint of the property.
Gardens and grounds
The property is set within around 1.25 acres of its own land. The gardens are surrounded by a stone built wall and a small burn runs through the gardens, with water collecting in ponds at the top and the bottom. There is a fantastic vegetable garden and orchard with apple, plum and cherry trees. A summer house at the top of the garden offers a wonderful aspect west towards the bay.
