Harris Highland Dream is a stunning property set on the shores of Loch Shin with land that extends to 168 acres of hill and native woodland with the associated sporting and fishing rights. The east end of the property forms a narrow strip of ground between the A838 public road and the loch widening towards the west to provide an attractive area of open hill with birch woodland and
extensive loch frontage.
Built by R.House with sympathy to the landscape, the property is clad in larch with a black painted sinusoidal roofing. Harris Highland Dream benefits from being off-grid with solar panels feeding a generator for electricity and the water from a borehole. Internally the property has high quality fixtures and fittings throughout including oak or tiled floors and oak doors and it is orientated to take advantage of the stunning panoramic views.
The current owners have added luxury features throughout the property with the highest attention to detail thus making Harris Highland Dream a truly exceptional home.
