7 Brue is a substantial modern detached 4/5 bedroom property set in a generous garden. Located on the Atlantic coast on the north west of the Isle of Lewis the property has stunning loch and countryside views – across Loch Barvas to Barvas Moor and north across open sea as far as the eye can see.
The property benefits from full UPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating supplemented by a multi fuel stove in the spacious lounge.
There is also a large detached garage/workshop.
Brue is located in the area of Lewis known as West Side, close to Barvas Moor and some 12
north of Stornoway. The local beach is just a short stroll away.
The closest village of Barvas is about a mile away and has services including a petrol station/general store/newsagents/post office, churches and a new primary school.
It is the ideal place to get away from it all whilst still being in easy reach of all the facilities Stornoway has to offer. Being only a relatively short drive from the airport (approximately 14 miles) it makes the ideal location for a holiday home with easy access to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Inverness and Aberdeen. Stornoway is also the main ferry port with regular crossings to Ullapool on the mainland.
The area is an ideal base for walker and water sport enthusiasts alike – you can surf off the Atlantic coast or wind surf and kayak in Loch Barvas.
