A four bedroom individual design led home with stunning views.

Introducing Eidleann • Ay-yung, House 6 at Birlinn Brae a four 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.

Under the dual-pitch roof, the bedroom level upstairs is glimpsed from below via a balustraded landing overlooking the entry hall.

A wood-burning stove in an inglenook on the south gable 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 sustainability credentials.
