Situated in a wonderful, rural location on the picturesque Isle of Iona, Seileastair House offers buyers an opportunity to acquire an architect designed three-bedroom house, the perfect home for those looking to relocate to this magical Inner Hebrides island. Unique, and modern open-plan cathedral ceiling.
Iona holds a special place in the hearts of people from around the world and properties are seldom listed for sale in the open market. With far reaching views across the island coastline, Seileastair House was designed with a nautical theme in mind and perfectly captures the colours, styles, and features of the sea with a tasteful blend of interior design features and subtle hints of a marine environment, such as nautical lamps and portholes.
Entrance is from the front, with a door leading from the parking area into a hallway which, in turn, leads through to a glorious open plan living area. The room is flooded with natural daylight thanks a south facing glazed wall – a design feature in its own right. The open plan living space comprises of stylish fitted kitchen which perfectly complements the dining area, offering a wonderful space to entertain family and friends.

The property enjoys a privileged position on the island and offers open views across the surrounding countryside. The gardens extend around the property and are mainly laid to lawn. A hot tub is located to the front of the house for those looking to relax and unwind in a truly unique setting. Wherever possible, the garden space has been conserved with the original Macha grassland turfs which were removed during the build process.
Adjacent to the main house is a detached wooden cabin at present used as a glass artists studio but it is heavily insulated and plaster-boarded and with both water, full drainage and electricity installed it could be adapted to other uses.
Seileastair House is wonderful property sitting in an enviable island location. The interior is decorated tastefully throughout and is finished to a high standard. Interest in the property is likely to be high, and early viewing is recommended.
