The Farmhouse is a traditional, detached house built mainly of harled stone under a slate roof standing in a large garden extending to about 0.55 acres (0.22ha). It provides charming family accommodation on 2 floors.
The front door leads to the staircase hall and to the delightful timber lined dining room. There is direct access from the dining room to the sitting room, which has sliding patio doors and an open fireplace, and to the kitchen. A covered passageway connects the kitchen to the office and utility room. A double bedroom and the family bathroom complete the ground floor.
On the first floor there are 2 double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a washroom with WC and wash hand basin.
Whilst the kitchen was refitted some 8 years ago the house would benefit from re-decoration and upgrading of the bathroom fittings, windows and the drainage system.
Outside there is a useful storage shed measuring about 40 feet x 20 feet and a static 4 berth caravan. The large garden is a particular feature of the property. Extending to about 0.55 acres it includes a front garden, a wooded area to the west and a spacious yard to the north. Discussions with the local planning authority suggest that there may be potential for a further house within the grounds subject to planning consent.
The farmhouse is situated at the west end of the village on the north side of the public road next to the post box. Dalchreichart is a popular village lying in spectacular Highland scenery 8 miles from Invermoriston, 15 miles from Fort Augustus, and 35 miles from Inverness. It is conveniently placed close to the A887, which leads east to the shores of Loch Ness at Invermoriston, and to the Isle of Skye in the west.
There are good local shops and facilities in Invermoriston and Fort Augustus whilst the thriving regional centre of Inverness can be reached in about 60 minutes by car. Dalchreichart is in the catchment area for Kilchuimen primary school and Kilchuimen Academy in Fort Augustus.
The area is renowned for its year round sport and leisure facilities. These include hill walking and climbing, salmon and trout fishing, deer stalking, water sports on Loch Ness and skiing at the Nevis Range (Fort William).
