Lentranlea is in a beautiful setting within the former walled vegetable garden to Lentran House, in the scattered hamlet of Lentran, close to Beauly in Inverness-shire. The surrounding countryside is peaceful and unspoilt, providing a haven for many rare species of plants and wildlife. 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.The village of Beauly is traditional and prosperous 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, which is within easy commuting distance, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south.Lentranlea is a unique, detached and extended bungalow which has been under the same ownership for over 57 years. The property was first extended in 1984 with the addition of a garage and a garden room and was extended again in 1992 when the north-westerly wing was added comprising a Mozolowski & Murray conservatory, a bathroom, a shower room, the principal bedroom, a sewing room and a utility room. The property now offers over 3200 sq ft of light filled accommodation, with the abundance of glazing extending the sense of space into the garden. Although requiring a degree of modernisation the property has been well maintained, the accommodation is versatile, and presents the potential for further extension or sub-division subject to gaining the necessary consents.
