The Old Bank House in Lochmaddy, was, as its name suggests, previously the residence of the local bank manager but is now in private ownership.
The house sits in an elevated position within Lochmaddy enjoying wonderful sea views.
The property offers bright and spacious living accommodation and with five bedrooms (two of which are en-suite) would make a lovely family home or perhaps a B & B establishment.
The majority of the windows in the property were replaced along with the roof soffits in 2006. Planning permission for a large lounge extension over the garage was granted some years ago but has since lapsed.
The property would benefit from a degree of modernisation and upgrading.
Lochmaddy or Loch Nam Madadh, which is the main settlement in North Uist, takes its name from the rocks in the entrance of the loch shaped like dogs’ heads. The settlement has a long history and one of the oldest buildings was an inn called Tigh Chearsabhagh which has now been converted to a museum and art centre with café attached.
