Nestled in the spectacular Scottish countryside, this beautiful family home is a delightful and prestigious addition to Hamish Homes’ portfolio. Constructed in the early 18th century, the property is accessed from a sweeping gravel drive lined with trees and lawns. A large parking area is in front of the attached garage. The house has a substantial interior space of 174m2 and has been completed throughout with a warm, neutral palette that creates a welcoming ambience.

The hall opens into the large lounge with ochre walls and a large and deeply set six-over-six sash window, complemented by a French door that opens onto a pretty flagstone patio. A chair rail, alcoves and wall sconces accentuate the relaxed feel and a white chimney piece houses a large wood-burning stove creating a striking focal point. The spacious kitchen-dining room epitomises country elegance. Stripped wooden floors and a British Racing Green Aga along with a tiled canopy, work beautifully with the white painted cabinetry, tiled worksurface and splash areas. A wide-open U-shape arrangement creates substantial room for a dining or farmhouse table. The adjoining utility room is generously sized and provides a great deal of space for additional storage and appliances.

The second lounge is decorated in soft sage greens and white joinery, with double-aspect sash windows that overlook the gardens. Wooden floors, a charming tiled mantelpiece and a cast iron hearth further enhance this delightful space, creating a lovely, light filled room for guests or, with its proximity to the downstairs shower room, an accessible bedroom for family members. The shower room is generously sized and tiled all around with some yellow accents, it contains a shower enclosure, a WC and a wash hand basin.

A dog-leg timber staircase opens onto a balustered landing. There are three further bedrooms with deeply coombed ceilings and sash windows, each room having floor areas large enough to have considerable usable space and head height. The three rooms are all charming with individual pastel colour schemes and have in-built storage. The bathroom is finished in blue and white and has a bath with a hand-held shower over it, a WC, and a wash hand basin.

The garden wraps around the house in a swathe of immaculate lawns and includes patios laid with natural stone flags and a wooden pergola. It is a private space enclosed with hedging and mature trees, with glimpses of the beautiful views clearly visible from many areas. A timber store lies close to the garage at the front of the house. Milton of Balnagowan is an exquisite property that offers a wonderful home for a family. Close to Inverness and Nairn, it also enjoys the benefits of a convenient location combined with an exceptional countryside setting near the coast. We know that this property will be very popular and early viewing is advised.

Halfway between Nairn and Inverness, Ardersier is a charming village close to the Moray Firth with wonderful views of the Black Isle. Its interesting streets, filled with traditional houses and newer properties, are a pretty example of a coastal setting but have managed to retain the peacefulness that has characterised it since it was founded in the 17th Century. Originally a fishing village that also served the nearby military base, Fort George, the village continues to have a strong community with strong local activities. There are also small shops, pubs and places to eat in the village and it is a popular area with the type of gentle tourism that reflects its ambience well.

Recent infrastructure development, including the expansion of nearby Inverness Airport, has further enhanced Ardersier's appeal, increasing its connectivity and making it an attractive prospect for people moving to the Highlands. Many of the population commute to Inverness and Nairn and there is a healthy entrepreneurial spirit in the area. Ardersier is 7 miles from Nairn, popular with visitors attracted to its beaches and history and 10 miles from the city of Inverness. There are several primary and secondary schools, medical facilities and wider services can also be found in Inverness, as well as in Nairn.
