Rare opportunity to purchase an individually designed contemporary family home, set within a modern development of unique properties. This stylish home is located in the desirable Braes of Balvonie development in Milton of Leys, just off the A9 and only a short drive from Inverness City Centre. This unique home has been built to be a super-insulated reinterpretation of a highland cottage and has been constructed with locally sourced indigenous materials. It has been designed to have as little impact on the environment as possible with a low carbon footprint throughout its lifetime. Velux windows, patio doors in all ground floor bedrooms and balconies in both the lounge and master bedroom allow an abundance of natural light into both floors. The impressive lounge is on the first floor and has high ceilings and a wood burner, which adds a fantastic focal point, as well as heating the upper floor. The contemporary kitchen comes with quality integrated appliances including a fridge/freezer, dish washer, gas hob and electric oven. The master bedroom is well proportioned and the addition of a balcony allows natural light to flood the room. A modern en-suite shower room and WC complete the first floor of the house. On the ground floor there are 3 good sized double bedrooms, 2 of which include fitted wardrobes. Bedroom 4 would also make a fantastic childs playroom or family room with patio doors leading out to the rear garden. The family bathroom has a unique nautical style feature window and has a useful shower over bath. The utility room completes the accommodation on the ground floor. The house benefits from generously sized solar panels and a large hot water buffer storage tank, designed so that hot water will be provided for much of the year with a backup of air source heat pump and a log stove. There is a south facing fully enclosed rear garden with a private outlook. To the front of the property there is a drive for 2 cars. This property will appeal to the discerning buyer looking for something that stands out from the crowd!
