Situated in the ever popular crofting township of Camus Cross, Druim Bàn is a stunning contemporary 4 bedroomed home on a working croft, looking south over Camuscross bay.
Designed by local multi award winning architects Dualchas as, and until recently, the family home, the place feels like a home from home with a plethora of books, art comfortable, beautiful furniture.
Set in mature gardens the house takes full advantage of the sun looking south out across the bay.
Whilst contemporary and minimalist in design this is a family home and the interior has been beautifully furnished with comfort and practicality in mind. The artwork and extensive book collection, a feast for the discerning, reflect the owner’s connection with the place: the family has been on this croft since 1868.
