4 bedroom detached house for sale
Culbokie, Dingwall, Ross-Shire, Highland
Wester Brae House started life as a small cottage rumoured to be the last thatched cottage on the Black Isle. Over the years it has been substantially increased in size and now provides comfortable family accommodation.
Wester Brae House is approached up a single track road and has a generous parking area of tarmac and gravel to the side of the house.
Wester Brae House is predominantly constructed of blockwork which has been cement rendered to give a cottage/textured appearance underneath slate roofs. The front door to Wester Brae house leads into a large entrance vestibule and a separate hallway which gives access to the main house and also integrates the house with the garage block/ north end of the house. The hallway connects to the open-plan dining room, kitchen, sunroom, 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom. The hallway continues towards the conservatory and gives access to a further bedroom and a shower room. The galley kitchen with its oil fired Rayburn cooker also has direct access to the conservatory which makes very flexible and useful accommodation for entertaining and family enjoyment.
The conservatory is a wonderful room, flooded in light and has the advantage of a free standing wood-burning stove. On a chill winters evening the warm glow from the wood burning stove helps create a convivial family atmosphere.
Stairs from the hallway lead to the first floor sitting room which has one fully glazed gable giving outstanding panoramic views to the north and west over the Cromarty Firth to Ben Wyvis and the mountains of Ross-shire beyond.
The utility room/laundry, small office/reception, further shower room and the integral double garage combine to form a unit that may, given appropriate consents and conversion, provide separate accommodation. From the outside a glazed panel door leads into a small hallway giving access to an office/reception, an internal door through into the garage and a staircase rising to a first floor games room which also enjoys panoramic views over the Cromarty Firth.
Outside there is a former stone built barn under a corrugated iron roof which is currently used for storage. One room has been used as an office in former days.
Wester Brae House has a delightful garden to the front which comprises areas of lawn with clipped cypress hedging and flower beds. To the rear is a fenced off pond with leisure decking at one end. The grounds throughout the property are a mixture of lawns, specimen trees, shrubs and flower beds.
Immediately to the rear of Wester Brae, is the Millbuie Forest and direct access can be taken to enjoy out-door pursuits, walking, cycling, enjoying the views or watching the abundant wild life.
