Rare chance to buy unique black house in the Outer Hebrides

Rare chance to buy unique black house in the Outer Hebrides

There’s only a handful of traditional thatched black houses remaining on the islands and they rarely come up for sale.

However, Bell Ingram is currently marketing Ty Cymro, a beautifully renovated black house in the Outer Hebrides at offers over £180,000.

Situated in a conservation area on the island of Berneray with stunning sea views, this is a property brimming with charming features and breath-taking views.

Joanne Stennett, who is handling the sale, said: “Ty Cymro is the perfect island home filled with charm and presents a great opportunity for buyers looking to enjoy an idyllic rural lifestyle.

“The beauty of the waterside location is undeniable and the opportunity to purchase a black house of this type anywhere on the islands is a rarity.

“Berneray is inhabited by around 130 people and has a traditional community feeling to it. With no crime to speak of, it makes a wonderfully safe environment for children and adults alike.

“The island is famed for its tranquillity and abundance of birdlife and wildlife. With numerous sandy beaches to enjoy, it has a busy tourist trade and Ty Cymro is in the perfect location to be suited as a family home or a business.”

Located in the Sound of Harris and linked via a causeway from North Uist or a ferry to Leverburgh/Harris, Berneray is only 11 miles from the ferry terminal at Lochmaddy and 30 miles from the airport at Balivanich. It has three hotels, a community centre, a bistro/general store, a local shop/post office and a primary school. There is a fortnightly doctor’s surgery.
