Fantastic Investment Opportunity In An Idyllic Highland Setting

CKD Galbraith presents a fantastic opportunity to acquire a fabulous cottage with land and planning consent for three additional dwellings located in an idyllic Highland setting south of Loch Ness.

Sionnaich Cottage is located in Whitebridge in a spectacular and unspoilt landscape set against the backdrop of the Monadhliath Mountains and yet only a 20 minute drive to the popular tourist destination of Loch Ness.

Built around 15 years ago, the Cottage has been finished to a high specification to create a comfortable home with all the traditional character of a croft cottage but also featuring luxuries such as under floor heating on the ground floor.

The property offers comfortable of accommodation over two floors with a large dining kitchen and three large bedrooms with the master bedroom benefiting from an en suite bathroom, his and hers fitted wardrobes and patio doors offering direct access to the garden. The beautiful double aspect sitting room is centred around the multi-fuel burning stove which provides a tranquil place to relax after a busy day.

The grounds are delightful and include an enclosed and colourful garden with a sheltered patio, ornamental pond, productive organic vegetable and fruit garden and a greenhouse for budding gardeners. The remaining land at Sionnaich Cottage extends to 5.3 acres and comprises open native woodland and views overlooking the Allt Breinag and its stunning waterfall.

There is planning consent for three more dwellings within the grounds which offers an ideal investment opportunity for prospective buyers, either to develop the plots themselves for holiday let accommodation or to sell on as an investment prospect.

Phiddy Robertson, handling the sale for CKD Galbraith, said: "Sionnaich Cottage presents a great investment opportunity with both selling and development options at a competitive price below the home report valuation. As the cottage is set in the heart of great fishing and shooting country it also provides the business potential for sporting holiday lets.

"The delightful grounds at the Sionnaich Cottage add to the appeal of this property, with views over the beautiful countryside and set against the backdrop of mature native woodland, home to an abundance of wildlife species. The high standard to which the property has been built, offers the discerning purchaser an opportunity to acquire a fantastic and affordable house in a scenic highland location.

"Given the property's rural location but within close proximity to Inverness and the Great Glen, as well as the range of sporting and outdoor opportunities in the region, we expect sustained interest from both local buyers and those further afield."   

The village of Whitebridge has a popular hotel at its heart and is only a ten minute walk from the property, while the nearby village of Gorthleck has a primary school, with secondary schooling available in both Inverness and Fort Augustus. Only five miles away, the charming village of Foyers has a local shop, post office and primary school, with major supermarkets offering home delivery to the cottage.

Sionnaich Cottage and land is now on the market at a guide price of 350,000.
