The house is a very handsome and substantial country home, which has been thoughtfully modernized and extended over the past ten years, while retaining many of the original features. The interior accommodation includes five bedrooms, four reception rooms, an office, utility room and spacious dining-kitchen. Three of the bedrooms are en-suite.
The delightful grounds extend to a third of an acre and are laid mainly to lawn, with mixed flower beds and mature shrubs. There is a decked area with a hot tub at the side of the property. The shore of Loch Ness is a short walk from the property.
Phiddy Robertson, handling the sale of the property for Galbraith, said:
This is a wonderful family home, with a wealth of period features that will hold great appeal to a wide range of buyers.
The layout of the house, with its two wings, lends itself to bed and breakfast accommodation or a premium holiday let. The current owners have let the property successfully as a self-catering holiday home for several years.
Above all its situation, close to the loch but screened by woodlands on three sides, offers complete privacy and a wonderful rural lifestyle for the purchasers.
The hamlet of Inverfarigaig lies in the Great Glen, but distant from the busier tourist route along the north side of the Loch. Although both Inverness and Fort Augustus are just half-an-hour’s drive away, this area remains peaceful and unspoilt, its beautiful wooded shoreline and dramatic inland landscape providing a haven for many species of plants and wildlife. The quiet countryside makes it an ideal area for cycling and walking, while the west coast with its excellent sailing is within easy reach.
