Barn conversion is a dream home with sea views from the garden and close to the stunning beaches of Isle of Lewis

The Barn at Reef is an exceptional coastal property located in a quiet and rural location on the West coast of the Isle of Lewis.

Build on the original footprint of a traditional blackhouse, The Barn is a beautifully presented two-bedroom cottage which has been upgraded and renovated to the highest standard, with solid oak floors and large Velux windows giving a bright and airy feel to the property.

Although The Barn is currently operated as a successful self-catering cottage, it could be returned to its original use as a family home.

The property is accessed via a bespoke front door created by Treecraft Woodwork which leads to the hallway giving access to the kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. To the right of the hall is the kitchen which has an excellent range of country style floor and wall units with wooden worksurface with inset Belfast sink. There is a stylish breakfast bar with ornate wooden top. Dual aspect windows look to the front and rear and a glazed door opens to a decking area.

A door leads to the sitting room which has a stone clad feature wall and a focal point of a Charnwood multi-fuel stove sat on a slate hearth. Completing the accommodation is the modern bathroom which has a two-piece suite in white comprising WC and wash hand basin. There is a large walk-in shower with powerful drench head shower and wet wall panelling for easy cleaning.

Externally, the garden to the front of the cottage has views towards the Harris mountains and Loch Roag. The Barn’s elevated position ensures that it is in full sun all day and, by afternoon, the back garden acts as a perfect suntrap where you can sit out on the decking and watch the sun go down in the West. There is a block built shed/workshop and wooden log/bike store which both have electricity.
