Monarda House is a truly exceptional property which is well presented and provides elegant and luxurious accommodation arranged over two levels. The inspiration and desire at the outset was to design a property resembling a traditional shooting lodge with a modern twist which blended in to the local surroundings. Great care, craftsmanship and an eye for detail has resulted in the creation of one of the finest properties in the Scottish Highlands set in a in a peaceful yet convenient location within the popular village of Kiltarlity, 12 miles west of Inverness.

The property was built circa 2007 and enjoys uninterrupted views and a great deal of privacy. The attention to detail is evident on entering the driveway with the meticulous gardens, distinctive Brunswick Green paintwork, and elegant design. The large stone chipped driveway provides ample space for several vehicles and leads to the integral garage.

Access to the house is via a broad and welcoming hallway which leads to the impressive drawing room. This is a beautifully proportioned room with large feature windows allowing an abundance of natural light to flood in. Features include hardwood flooring, wall mounted picture lights, high ceiling, hand-made fireplace and inset wood burning stove. The bay windowed dining kitchen comes with an array of bespoke Scotwood of Nottingham storage units, Villeroy & Boch double sink, Aga, canopy, Italian stone flooring, centre island and granite worktops. There is a walk in larder and ample space for a large dining table and chairs and sitting area. To the side there is a porch leading to the gardens. The inner hallway leads to two, beautifully appointed bedrooms, family bathroom and wet room. A large utility room provides additional storage and space for white goods. There is an integral garage and workshop area and to the rear of the garage is the home office/study.

This leads to the Master bedroom, a magnificent spacious room with lovely views and plenty of storage. It has a luxurious en suite with marble tiling, WC, wash hand basin and shower.
