Likely to date from the mid 1900’s, Balnabual Cottage was originally built as a farm cottage and has been extended over the years. It is primarily constructed of rendered stone under a pitched slate roof and provides well-proportioned accommodation over two storeys. The sitting room is a particularly bright and appealing room with an exposed stone wall, timber ceiling beams and a wood burning stove. It also gives access to the sun room which overlooks and leads out to the charming rear garden. The kitchen has a range of timber wall and floor units and connects with the utility room which has space for white goods. The master bedroom on the first floor also has an abundance of natural light. The property has a biomass boiler (wood chip), solar panels and private drainage. GARDENThe house sits within a most impressive, mature garden which extends to about 0.76 acres. It includes a wide variety of plants, superb vegetable beds, poly tunnel, pond, summer house and greenhouses. To the rear of the house is a charming patio area. There is space for parking on the gravelled driveway to the front of the house in addition to the double garage. There are also numerous outbuildings including garages, workshops and tool stores which provide ample storage space.SITUATION Balnabual Cottage is a characterful, detached house located in a peaceful yet very easily accessible location near Tornagrain, between Inverness and Nairn.
