Ach An Darach
Ach An Darach lies in a spectacular setting in the crofting township of Teavarran near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. The site and land was purchased by the current owner in 2012 and the build of this outstanding contemporary home completed in 2014. The design of the house was heavily influenced by the owners to create an exceptionally comfortable, well laid out and practical home, taking advantage of the stunning views over its own land to Strathglass, Strath Cannich and Ben Wyvis.

The triple aspect sitting room has a Clearview wood burning stove, its warmth filtering through the house, there is a comfortable en suite bedroom, while the peaceful morning room with french doors to the garden could also provide further bedroom accommodation and has been used as a guest dining room when the owners have offered B&B. The stunning dining kitchen and family room is the focal point of the house, with its beautifully appointed kitchen, electric four oven AGA, Clearview wood burning stove and french doors to the flagstone terrace. From the kitchen, a door leads to the spacious utility room with larder cupboard and doors to shower room and boot room.
