½ 1 Valtos, Staffin, Isle Of Skye, IV51 9JD

½ 1 Valtos is a traditional 1 ½ storey former croft house which has been sympathetically renovated in a traditional style by the current owners set in a rural location with views to the front across the loch to the mainland and views of the Trotternish ridge to the rear.

Accommodation:
Ground Floor: Hallway, Living Room, Kitchen & Bathroom.
First Floor: Landing, Two Double Bedrooms and Box Room.
External: Timber Framed Building Housing a Utility Room, Shower Room and Kitchen/Dining/Workshop.

½ 1 Valtos has been a family holiday home for the current owners for the past 23 years and due to personal circumstances they have sadly, and reluctantly, made the decision that it is now time to sell.
Since buying the property in 1992 the owners have carried out a number of sympathetic renovations and upgrading works in a traditional fashion to retain the charm and character of this former croft house. Thus, whilst benefitting from gas fired central heating and retaining many original features, much of the original v-lining has been replaced and a solid fuel stove has been installed in the kitchen which has a small oven and hot plate. The roof was also reroofed in 2005 with Welsh slate.
The property has two good sized bedrooms and a box room which does take a single bed.
In addition to the main house there is also a timber frame building to the rear. This building houses a utility room, shower room and kitchen/dining/workshop benefiting from gas central heating and a stunning view of the Trotternish Ridge. Whilst offering great potential for a variety of uses the building would benefit from a degree of modernisation and upgrading.
Set in a rural location with views to the front across the loch to the mainland including stunning sunrises and views of the Trotternish ridge to the rear, ½ 1 Valtos would make a lovely permanent home in a great location or a holiday home – as it has been used for the last 23 years.
The property sits in a garden area extending to 0.14 acre or thereby (to be confirmed by Title Deed). There is a gravel drive to the front. The garden is laid mainly to grass with a number of trees to the rear.
There is a BT landline to the property with broadband and Sky TV is also installed.

Location:
Valtos is a traditional crofting community in the north of Skye, backed by the mountains of the Trotternish ridge with views over the sea to mainland situated 14 miles from Portree and 6 miles from Staffin on the A855 road. The current owners stress what a welcoming community it is and that they have excellent relations with their neighbours.
Portree is the main administrative centre of Skye offering a wide range of facilities including primary and secondary education, doctors and dentists’ surgeries, a variety of shops, banks, hotels & restaurants and sports facilities. There is also a small cinema/theatre within the Aros Heritage Centre, located on the outskirts of the town.
Staffin offers a number of facilities including a hotel and several restaurants, one housed in the Columba 1400 Centre and another adjacent to the local community centre which also houses a food shop. There is a further small shop and fuel pumps located in the village. A primary school is located in Staffin providing education in both Gaelic and English Medium, secondary education and a school bus service operates to ferry pupils to and from the high school.
