Tenure: Freehold

The Old Manse is a beautiful period home, full of original charm and a host of features including original woodwork, window shutters and cornicing. The property enjoys a private setting in mature garden grounds and includes an adjoining cottage. The flexibility of the layout combined with the cottage and grounds will appeal to a wide variety of purchasers including those looking for a property with a potential holiday let, home office or B&B. The property is tastefully decorated and the current owners have improved and upgraded the specification over the years to include double glazing and oil fired central heating.

Access to The Old Manse is via a tree lined gravelled driveway with ample parking for several vehicles. The property is entered via the entrance porch leading to a broad and welcoming hallway. This leads to three floors of beautifully proportioned living space.

On the ground floor, the drawing room and sitting room are front facing and enjoy views over the gardens. Both rooms have a host of features including picture rail, ceiling cornicing and period fireplaces. A wood burning stove has been installed in the sitting room. There is a formal dining room with Jetmaster open fire and a doorway gives access to a well-equipped kitchen which is fitted with floor and wall units, window seat and a four oven Aga which also heats the water. The ground floor also has a utility/work room, pantry, boiler room, cold store and a tastefully decorated shower room comprising power shower, wash hand basin and WC. The inner hallway gives access to the single storey cottage which has been renovated and this includes a new roof and double glazed windows. The beauty of the cottage is its flexibility and the fact that it can be accessed from the main house if required or independently via its own entrance. The cottage would make an ideal granny annex, office/workshop or rental opportunity.

The feature staircase leads to a half landing with stairs bearing to the left towards the rear landing where there are two bedrooms and the family bathroom. From the half landing the stairs bearing right lead to the master bedroom suite complete with walk-in dressing room, bathroom and sauna and a further two bedrooms. The stairs from the main landing lead to the second floor and an additional two bedrooms and storeroom with coombed ceilings.

EPC Rating - D

Strathpeffer is an enchanting Victorian Spa village only 5 miles away from the market town of Dingwall. The village itself owes it growth to the discovery in the 1700's of sulphurous springs purported to be the healthiest in the UK and this led to a steady stream of visitors from around Europe and beyond. The original Spa pavilion within the village has been restored and now serves as a multi purpose venue for a variety of events. The village itself is very picturesque and although the buildings have a wide variety of styles, all exude a no expense spared solidity that says much about the largely Victorian origins and about the wealth of the town at that time. There are a host of activities available nearby including hillwalking, mountain biking, fishing and golfing. There is a primary school, health centre, chemist, café and other facilities all available within the village. Inverness is very much the commercial and business centre for the Highlands of Scotland and is convenient for the Airport which is located to the East of the city. The airport provides a variety of domestic and European flights. Inverness also has excellent public transport links with good bus and rail connections.

The garden grounds are an undoubted feature of this fantastic property. Extending to approximately 5 acres the mature trees, plants and shrubs provide a great deal of privacy and seclusion. The front of the house is clad with vines and other climbing plants and there is a magnificent walled garden. To the north of the house is an area of rough grass and beyond this, two paddocks with a burn running through the grounds.
