Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Hill House is a fantastic traditional home dating back to the late 1800's which was refurbished and extended in the mid 1990's. The imaginative and sympathetic design combined with the use of glass has created a bright and airy living space in wonderful surroundings with nice views over the local countryside and beyond.

The property has retained many original features which include exposed stonework and fireplaces and provides spacious accommodation arranged over two levels.

Entrance is via the stone chipped driveway which leads to the front of the house and provides ample parking for several vehicles. The accommodation is entered via a large and welcoming sun room which leads to the inner hallway. From the hallway there is access to a storage cupboard and doorway leading to the shower room which has a walk in shower, WC, wash hand basin. On one side of the house there is a cosy sitting room with stone fireplace and inset wood burning stove, double bedroom and a fantastic open plan dining kitchen. This is a lovely part of the house with an array of wall and base storage units, integrated Baumatic range with ceramic hob, American style fridge freezer with water/ice dispenser, centre island and ample space for a large table and chairs. A set of double doors open up directly onto the decked terrace to the side and there is an abundance of natural light via a feature window with 16 glass panels.

On the other side of the hallway there is a family/TV room which has an original open fire, exposed stonework and storage cupboard. The utility/boot room provides additional storage and space for white goods and has a door to the side for added convenience leading directly into the gardens. A great deal of thought has gone into making the property flow well both upstairs and downstairs and this is again evident with the upstairs accommodation which can be accessed from a staircase from the sitting/TV Room and a further staircase from the inner hallway adjacent to the kitchen. Upstairs there is a large Master bedroom which has a walk in dressing area and en suite shower room. There is a family bathroom and a further two double bedrooms.

Hill House is quietly located near the attractive and historic village of Auldearn and only 6 miles from the centre of Nairn which is a vibrant Victorian town known for its dry, sunny climate and beautiful beaches. It has a good range of shops (including a large Sainsburys supermarket) and professional services as well as a museum, excellent hotels and restaurants. It also boasts its own Hospital and modern Primary Care Centre. This festival town also has a modern community centre and concert hall, a sports centre, tennis club, indoor swimming pool/gym, bowling greens, a cricket pitch and a wide range of social activities.
The harbour is home to a small fishing fleet, marina and sailing club. In addition to the two Nairn championship golf courses, golf is also conveniently available at Royal Dornoch, Spey Valley and the Castle Stuart Golf Links. There is salmon fishing on the Rivers Nairn, Findhorn and Spey and shooting is readily available on local estates.
The beautiful Spey Valley with its Whisky trail and the ski slopes at the Cairngorms and The Lecht are all within easy driving distance. The city of Inverness provides a range of retail parks and supermarkets as well as many entertainment, cultural and hospital facilities expected of the Highland Capital. Inverness Airport has regular daily flights to London (Heathrow, Luton and Gatwick), Amsterdam, Dublin, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and other UK destinations. The Aberdeen to Inverness railway line stops at Nairn and there are regular services (including sleepers) from Aberdeen and Inverness to London and the South.

Set in mature, nicely landscaped garden grounds of around 1/3 of an acre bounded to the rear by woodland with a variety of plant and shrub borders, lawn, decked sun terrace, detached timber garage and greenhouse.
