Gesto Cottage, Edinbane, Isle Of Skye, IV51 9PW

A spacious three bedroom property which has been fully refurbished and upgraded in the last two years.


Lounge/Dining Room, Kitchen, 3 Double Bedrooms, Bathroom, Hallway, WC & Porch.

Gesto Cottage was built as a home for the matron of the neighbouring former Gesto Hospital (the later dating back to 1870).

The property has been completely refurbished and upgraded over the last two years and now benefits from Argon filled UPVC double glazing and dual fuel central heating powered by both the new gas combi central heating boiler and the multi fuel stove in the lounge.  In addition to the central heating there are also a couple of night storage heaters in the kitchen and hallway.

Gesto Cottage is a Dorran type construction and in addition to the Home Report, a Structural Engineers Report can also be made available to interested parties.  As part of the refurbishment works the property now has enhanced insulation to both the external walls and loft.

This spacious property would make a lovely family home or a delightful holiday home.
