Offers over £265000 are invited


Ad Astra is a stunning two bedroom detached 1.5 storey property located in the picturesque and popular township of Lower Breakish. Originally built over 100 years ago and subsequently extended, it was fully renovated in 2014 and offers a wonderful blend of modern convenience with traditional touches. A spacious garden, which leads to the shore, surrounds this immaculately presented property. Views across the Inner Sound, the Applecross peninsula, the Isles of Scalpay and Pabay and the Cuillins are afforded.

Ad Astra offers accommodation set out over two floors and comprises: Entrance porch/utility, hallway, modern family bathroom, open plan lounge/kitchen and two spacious double bedrooms.

The property benefits from LPG heating, underfloor heating (ground floor), wood burner, double glazing and ample built in storage.

Externally the property sits side on in a spacious fully enclosed garden which is mainly laid to lawn. A gravel driveway leads from the private gate with space for a number of vehicles to park.
