Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Big Barns is a handsome B listed house and cottage in a beautiful private setting close to Golspie in Sutherland. The house sits in delightful grounds set against a backdrop of mature woodland and with formal landscaped gardens to the front. There are stunning south facing views over wooded countryside to the Dornoch Firth, and its sheltered, south facing position creates a micro climate where tender plants thrive and the outside sitting areas can be used for much of the year.

Originally a barn on the Sutherland Estate, the building was converted to a terrace of cottages in the mid 1800’s by George Devey, one of the early architects in the Arts and Crafts Movement. The property was sensitively renovated in the early 2000’s to create a unique home retaining many original features and with the benefits of modern systems and technology. The attractive flagstone floors, lime washed walls, original fireplaces and latch doors combine with a biomass heating system and ultra modern kitchen and bathroom fittings to provide extremely comfortable, easily managed and characterful accommodation.

The adjoining self-contained cottage, which also has an interconnecting door from the main house, has been renovated to the same high standard as the main house. Currently a highly successful holiday let advertised through Cottages4You, the option exists for use as a residential let, owners’ or staff accommodation. Further information on the holiday letting business is available on request.
