Full descriptionSubstantial, traditional, extended Highland Farmhouse and Byre Conversion with a sitting-room annexe, south facing, in approximately 2.95 acres. Incheachart is a deceptively spacious, comfortable 3-bedroom family home sitting in the midst of the beautiful highland scenery of Glen Urquhart.
The oldest part of the house was once a croft house that was part of the long abandoned settlement of Incheachart, the remains of which can still be seen along the forest edge behind the house. The property has been sympathetically converted to give a blend of modern & traditional features that provide a warm, well-appointed home full of character.
There is a south facing 2-acre field in front of the house, currently used for horse grazing, with ample space to construct stables. Good hacking-out is available on nearby Forestry ground & there is a competition centre approx. 10 minutes away.
The property lies on a south facing hill with stunning views over Glen Urquhart and is within easy commuting distance of Inverness. The location of the property provides a good balance between rural Highlands and closeness to city facilities & transport links including a local bus service from the Glen to the city centre.
Accommodation consists of a large high-ceilinged lounge with wood-burning stove, dining area, large country kitchen with a 4-oven Aga, 3 double beds (one with a large en-suite), family bathroom, an office, sitting-room annexe with a wood-burning stove, large utility room with storage space and toilet, separate timber workshop & various outbuildings. 3 sets of windowed double doors on the front of the house open onto the garden.
The outbuildings include a small garden shed, good-sized wood shed, storage shed with electricity (suitable for an office/workshop) and large timber framed shed currently being used as a woodworking workshop. This building has an electrical supply & a solid fuel Rayburn stove.
Mature garden includes vegetable plots & fruit trees. There is also an enclosed area for poultry.
The property is in the catchment area for Balnain Primary School and Glen Urquhart High in Drumnadrochit (very high on the HMI League Table).
Drumnadrochit is 7 miles to the east at the start of the Glen (14 miles from Inverness) and has shops, a bank, post office, doctor's surgery, bus service, garages, restaurants & excellent primary and secondary schools. There are Loch Ness Monster attractions and the famous Urquhart Castle is located 1.5 miles south of Drumnadrochit.
Inverness has an airport, railway station & bus station, giving Inverness great transport links with the rest of Scotland, including the Western and Northern Isles, the UK and overseas
