Introducing Beithe - Bee-herr, House 3 at Birlinn Brae a three detached bedroom home as part of the Birlinn Brae fleet of spectacular design led homes.
Natural Scottish Larch clad houses in reference to the traditional Birlinn galleys of Somerled, Lord of the Isles.
Metal roofs in further nautical homage, in varying shades of grey and red emulating the slate and red tin roofs of west coast cottages and barns.
Split level to sit sympathetically into the existing site contours. The entry sequence from the entrance passageways to living rooms are calculated to create drama as steps and rising ceiling heights culminate in a spectacular open-plan living room with patio doors opening onto lochside views.
The open-tread staircase to the upper level affords glimpses right through the building towards the loch, while light filters down from the hipped pyramidal roof above.
The bedroom level upstairs features a small study gallery, seated from where the loch itself, as well as the living room below, can be viewed. A doubled-sided wood-burning stove in the centre of the house provides a living heart for the home.
Roofspaces incorporate generous storage gunnels. Natural materials, Air-Source heat pumps, underfloor heating and high insulation levels ensure cutting-edge.
