Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Ardachy is a magnificent contemporary house truly at one with its surroundings, enjoying an elevated position and breathtaking views across Loch Ness and the Monadliath mountain range. It has been cleverly re-modelled internally and extended and occupies a magnificent position only 16 miles outside Inverness.

A shared track leads to the property via a gated driveway with indigenous trees to the right and glimpses of Loch Ness and the hills beyond on the left. The current owners use the five acres of rough grazing for ponies and sheep and there are various useful outbuildings including storage sheds and a stable block. There is ample parking to the front of the house for several vehicles.

Access is via the hall which has limestone flooring, an under stair storage cupboard and a very convenient cloak/boot room located off. There is also a bathroom with bath, heated towel rail, wc, and wash hand basin. A door from the hallway leads into the large open plan kitchen at which point you fully appreciate the wonderful setting and clever design and layout which floods the house with light as well as providing views of the iconic Loch Ness. This part of this house originally formed part of the lounge prior to the extension, but has been cleverly re-designed to create a stunning living space, incorporating the dining kitchen and bay windowed dining area, with solid oak flooring throughout. The bespoke kitchen comes with a comprehensive range of wall and base storage units, Aga, centre island, granite worktops and a host of integrated appliances. There is a music room/study located off the kitchen and at the other end there are a set of French doors leading into a stunning sitting room with large floor to ceiling windows, solid oak flooring, under floor heating and a double sided wood burning stove. This is the perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy the spectacular views. Above the sitting room is the formal dining area making this a great part of the house to entertain guests. From here a door leads to an office and utility room.

On the upper level the broad landing leads to the master bedroom which has a storage area with hanging space as well as an en-suite shower room. There is a large family bathroom complete with bath with shower over, wc, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and a further three well-proportioned bedrooms.

EPC Rating - C

Ardachy enjoys a superb elevated position with views over Loch Ness and the stunning mountain backdrop. Upper Lennie is a small hamlet around 2.5 miles south west of Drumnadrochit and whilst it is in a truly rural location, the centre of Inverness, the capital and business centre of the Highlands, is only 16 miles away. Drumnadrochit provides a wide range of local shops and amenities including post office, medical centre, garages, hotels, primary and secondary schools.

The area is famous for its association with Loch Ness and is an excellent point from
which to explore the Highlands with its unspoilt hillsides providing a haven for plants and wildlife and excellent rural sporting opportunities. Inverness Airport has regular daily flights to London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and other UK destinations.

The immediate gardens are laid mainly to lawn and there is a small summer house to the side of the house with paths and walk ways through the garden grounds. To the front of the house there is a timber decked terrace and a variety of useful outbuildings. The land predominately slopes down from the house towards Loch Ness and comprises a mixture of rough grazing interspersed with a variety of plants, trees and shrubs.
