Bungalow is bound to appeal

The Orchard, in the village of Kirkhill
The Orchard, in the village of Kirkhill

The timeless appeal of a bungalow means one Kirkhill home should be quickly snapped up

There’s something very traditional and very British about the bungalow. Regarded as high status homes for the British Raj in India, similar-style homes began appearing in the UK in the 1860s. Their appeal extended beyond these shores and bungalows continue to be hugely popular everywhere from America to Australia.

Despite being a big hit with buyers of all ages, most new building developments tend to focus on two-storey homes, which means there’s always a bit of a demand for bungalows, with lots of interest being shown from home-owners.

The Orchard, in the village of Kirkhill, just a few miles from Inverness, is a good example of a bungalow that will spark a lot of interest. Beautifully presented throughout, the detached home which was built 14 years ago and is on the market at offers over £285,000, is set in attractive, good-sized landscaped gardens.


Providing spacious living over one level, both its condition and location are guaranteed to impress. Outside, there’s a monoblock driveway with plenty of parking space, and a detached double garage with a remote up and over door. Inside, the accommodation comprises an entrance vestibule, hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen and utility room, family bathroom, four double bedrooms with the master bedroom having an en-suite shower room.

Nice features include a lounge with open fireplace and french doors which open into the garden, while the separate dining room is ideal for formal occasions. The kitchen comes with a good range of wall and base units, Neff integrated appliances and also french doors leading into the garden.


The utility room is adjacent to the kitchen and provides further storage space and it comes complete with an integrated washer/dryer and door to the side. An inner hall leads to the bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom has big mirrored wardrobes while the en-suite has a large double shower, wash-hand basin and WC.

Another plus for The Orchard, which sits in the heart of the village of Kirkhill, is the amount of storage space it offers as the three other double bedrooms also have mirrored wardrobes. Located seven miles from Inverness, Kirkhill, which has local amenities including a primary school, is ideally placed for those looking to commute to the city.
