Swallowfield is in the scattered hamlet of Lentran close to Beauly in Inverness-shire. The property is in a beautiful setting with panoramic views to the Beauly Firth, the Black Isle and up Strathconon to the mountains of the west.The surrounding countryside is peaceful and unspoilt, providing a haven for many rare species of plants and wildlife and with woodland walks direct from the house. World class salmon fishing is available on the River Beauly and the quiet countryside makes it an ideal area for cycling and hill walking. The west coast, with its excellent sailing, is within easy reach and the National Nature Reserves of Glen Affric and Strathfarrar are just a short distance away.Beauly is a traditional and prosperous town with a good range of independent shops, hotels and a railway station. Primary schooling is available at Kirkhill and secondary schooling in Inverness, both of which have a free bus service. Inverness has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south.Swallowfield is a contemporary, highly energy efficient house designed to take advantage of the stunning views, while its beautifully appointed, understated interior creates a sense of space and calm. The house, which was completed in 2014, is finished to an excellent standard with well laid out family accommodation. High levels of insulation, a biomass boiler, solar gain and solar panels minimise running costs, while clever design fills the house with natural light. The spacious entrance hall leads to the semi open plan sitting room and beautifully appointed dining kitchen where the views take centre stage. There are two en suite bedrooms on the ground floor and on the first floor is the master bedroom with en suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe, and bedroom four which is currently used as a study/TV room.Detailed planning consent Reference No: 21/00228/FUL was granted in October 2021 for a single dwelling on the northern boundary of the site. The house has been sensitively designed to have minimum impact on Swallowfield while taking advantage of the beautiful views. Mains water and electricity are to the edge of the site. This development opportunity is ideal for those looking to move with parents or with family members.
