This magnificent country home enjoys a luxurious private setting. Constructed in the 1800's and further extended in 1972 and just 50 miles from Inverness, Tigh Geal is beautifully decorated and is surrounded by tasteful grounds and gardens. With outstanding views and a massive 204 m2 space, it is a large but elegant family home that requires early viewing.

The whitewashed house has a fabulous presence. It is set into the landscape and surrounded by fields, trees, stone walls, and lawns. Access is via a private drive to a parking area close to the house.

The large living room has an imposing natural stone chimney breast and hearth and a wood-burning stove with exceptional views from the massive window that spans one wall.

The vast double-aspect dining room has French windows that open into the garden; this ample space allows for a substantial dining suite and other occasional furniture, making this room extremely versatile.

Fitted with tile effect vinyl and wall cabinets, the kitchen is painted in a cheerful pale yellow, which complements the natural joinery and windows. A Belling range, with electric ovens and 5 ring LPG hob further enhance the country aesthetic of this spacious and attractive kitchen. To the rear of the kitchen, a generously sized utility room provides access to the garden.

The ground floor has a self-contained suite consisting of a charming sitting room and bedroom linked by double doors with French doors that leads to a private bedroom with an en-suite shower.

A further shower room is also available, which can be accessed from the hall.

A timber staircase leads to the three bedrooms on the first floor; these are individually decorated to reflect the unique characteristics of each; all the rooms feature excellent views, with the gable end rooms featuring coombed ceilings. All the bedrooms have integrated storage and wash-hand basins.

The family bathroom room is blue with white woodwork and has a wash hand basin, bath, WC and walk-in shower.

Fantastic gardens surround the property and include several outbuildings, including a garage, a stone barn, and a timber summer house. With adequate parking for at least 3 vehicles. The extensive grounds are impressive and have many areas of well-kept lawn, rockeries and borders, along with an enclosed kitchen garden. Areas of beautifully designed landscaping and mature trees surround the property.

Tigh Geal is an exceptional family home with beautiful grounds in an outstanding setting. Its interior and gardens have clearly been approached with tasteful elegance and care, and combined with its location in a spectacular part of Scotland, it justifiably deserves considerable interest.
