A home for sale on the Isle of Skye in Scotland already gives you a peaceful setting with gorgeous views of the hills and the sea. The property contains a two-bedroom home plus a one-bedroom guest house with a kitchen, and a separate studio. The look blends in well with the surroundings, combining traditional Scottish architecture with Scandinavian minimalism. But what really impressed me is the upside-down floorplan that works well in this context. The living room, dining room, and kitchen are upstairs, and take advantage of skylight windows in the roof for constant light, and of course, the view. Downstairs are the bedrooms and bathroom, which in this setting gives more privacy while still featuring windows. Both floors and both bedrooms have outside access.
The home is in the spread-out village of Flodigarry, which is a wonderful name to put on your return address. See the real estate listing here. -via Nag on the Lake
