Brisas is in the hamlet of Newhall near Cromarty on the Black Isle. The property is in a beautiful setting with far-reaching views over rolling farmland. The nearby coastal villages of Fortrose and Cromarty have a good range of independent shops, restaurants and amenities, while Inverness about 30 minutes’ drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe. Primary schooling is available at Resolis Primary School and secondary schooling at the highly regarded Fortrose Academy with a free school bus available for both.The Black Isle has fertile rolling countryside with a beautiful coastline of raised beaches and prominent headlands. The area has a number of way-marked cycle trails and walks, while the coastal villages offer sheltered harbours and Fortrose has a historic links golf course. The unspoilt countryside of the Highlands provides a haven for many rare and protected species of wildlife and Brisas is in an ideal setting to enjoy the best the area has to offer with regular sightings of deer and red kites, beautiful walks direct from the house, and the nearby RSPB Udale Nature Reserve.Brisas was designed by the sellers in conjunction with their architect and the build was completed in 2011. The property has well-appointed family accommodation with high quality finishes, while the extensive use of glass and double height ceilings extend the sense of space and fill the house with natural light. The house is energy efficient with high levels of insulation and double glazing, while the contemporary wood burning stoves in the reception rooms create a focal point for each room and filter additional heat through the house, together with the cosy under floor heating throughout the ground floor.
