The former walled garden to the Inverbroom Estate near Ullapool is the setting for an exclusive development of estate themed houses. In striking surroundings, the beautiful walls of the former garden have a backdrop of mature specimen trees set above the River Broom, an echo of the landscaped parkland of the estate.
On the market with CKD Galbraith, Nos 1 and 2 Braemore Walled Garden are two detached houses with traditional features of crow stepped gables, slate roofs, chimneys and a harled exterior set in immaculate lawns and carefully positioned to sit comfortably within the garden walls.
Although traditional in appearance, the houses have been constructed using the latest building techniques to guarantee minimal running costs and feature high levels of insulation, under floor heating and the latest oil fired condensing boiler. The spacious interiors are designed for modern day living with bright, semi open plan reception rooms and kitchen on the ground floor, and comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms on the first floor.
Four further dwellings are planned for the development, each one on the site of the former cottages or buildings that were used to service the walled garden in its Victorian heyday.
On completion, the Braemore Walled Garden will be an outstanding development of a kind unique in the Highlands and one which will set a template for those seeking to provide the very best in modern housing in a setting which reflects our heritage and history.
Ideal as a permanent family home or holiday house, Braemore Walled Garden lies about 11 miles east of the west coast village of Ullapool and just a 50 minute drive from Inverness, making it an easy daily commute. Ullapool is used as a base by many who wish to explore the outstanding and unspoilt landscape of the northwest Highlands, famous for its mild climate and stunning coastline with sheltered sandy beaches and island views.
Phiddy Robertson, associate at CKD Galbraith said:
If it's modern family living in a stunning rural location then one of the Braemore Walled Garden properties is for you. These are truly exceptional properties offering fantastic value for money whilst at the same time being highly cost effective to maintain given their modern and energy efficient specifications.
Strathmore is a beautiful part of Scotland in the northwest Highlands and the properties are sure to attract a lot of interest from families in the area but also from further afield, including the central belt, who are perhaps looking for a better work-like balance to enjoy the activities and pace of life that Scotland's countryside has to offer. Alternatively the properties would make for great holiday-let businesses for potential investors with this region being an extremely popular getaway given its mild climate, stunning coastline and impressive mountain ranges.
This area is popular for its sailing while, inland mountains and moorlands offer spectacular scenery, hill walking and climbing. Ullapool is well served by a wide range of shops and amenities including a major supermarket, a new secondary school and a number of good hotels and restaurants.
The market town of Dingwall is about a 40 minute drive away, while Inverness has all the facilities of a modern city with a sleeper service to London and its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.
