Balnafoich House is a fantastic former steading which has been thoughtfully extended and modernised to create a spacious family home on the outskirts of Inverarnie, only 7 miles from Inverness. The property has many features which include exposed stonework, wooden ceiling beams, vaulted ceilings, Aga, spiral staircase and wood burning stoves.

Accessed is via a gated entrance with a tarmacadam driveway which provides ample parking space for several vehicles and has a turning circle for added convenience. The driveway leads to a double garage with up and over doors, power and lighting. The broad, welcoming hallway has a distinctive vaulted ceiling, hardwood flooring and exposed stone walls and leads to an impressive formal dining room, perfect for entertaining with feature wood burning stove. This in turn leads into a large country style kitchen with a range of wall and base storage units, integrated appliances, granite worktops and oil fired Aga. There is a family room located off the kitchen with a spiral staircase leading to a games room. A rear vestibule provides access to the utility room, WC and larder. The inner hallway on the other side of the property leads to an impressive sitting room, a beautiful room with views over the gardens and a feature stone fire surround with wood burning stove inset. From here you can access the study/home office and a sunny, well prop-portioned conservatory. Further along the hallway there are a shower room and a guest bedroom with en suite facilities. There are a further two bedrooms, both with storage and a large boiler/storage room. The Master bedroom is accessed via a staircase from the hallway and has a pleasant view of the rear gardens and beyond as well as a modern en suite shower room.


Balnafoich House enjoys a fantastic rural setting amidst beautiful surroundings, yet only a short distance away from Inverness. Ideally placed for the commuting client looking for a tranquil, rural setting, the local area offers a wide range of recreational activities including fishing, shooting and hill walking. There is a thriving local community with village hall, church and well respected primary schools and shop in close proximity. Inverness hosts a castle, cathedral, theatre, leisure centre and excellent shopping facilities. Inverness Airport has regular daily flights to London, Manchester, Birmingham and other UK destinations. There are a range of further interests including the Cairngorms National Park and ski resort at Aviemore all within easy reach of the A9.

The gardens are a particular feature of Balnafoich House and extend to around 2 ¼ acres which are mainly laid to lawn and bordered by walled gardens, fencing and trees which provide a great deal of privacy. The gardens surrounding the house have been landscaped and are easily maintained and there are several places to relax and enjoy the nice views and relaxing surroundings.
