No 26 Geary is a modernised and extended detached property, currently let out as a holiday home. The property is neutrally decorated and benefits from double glazing as well as oil fired central heating. The ground floor is mainly tiled in slate with under floor heating (with the exception of the lounge and utility room). The kitchen is fitted with modern kitchen units and benefits from 2 large Velux windows and two further windows to the rear which allow light to flood into the room. A stable style door leads you through to the dining room which has a large window to the front offering wonderful views out over Loch Snizort. The multi fuel stove in the room offers that extra background heat for the colder winter months! Also on the ground floor is a wonderful lounge with vaulted ceiling and windows to front and side, allowing light to flood into the room room and affording the same wonderful views to Loch Snizort. Completing the ground floor accommodation is the spacious bathroom, which again benefits from the wonderful under floor heating, a utility room and a spacious bedroom. On the first floor you have a large landing area which offers plenty of space for a study area or quiet reading area. Leading off from the landing are two large bright bedrooms (1 with en-suite shower room).
Although the property is currently let out for holiday lets it would also make a lovely family home.
