Kilburnie House, Balgowan, Newtonmore is our Amazing Property of the Week.

Kilburnie House is a traditionally-styled home completed in 2007. It enjoys spectacular views over the upper Spey valley to the mountains beyond. The substantial house and its two-storey outbuilding are set within a beautiful, professionally landscaped garden and, including the fenced paddock, extend to around 2.5acres.

The house has been designed to be highly energy-efficient, with the use of double-glazing, under-floor heating on both floors, a ground source heat pump, excellent insulation and 16 solar panels linked to a feed in tariff and low-energy lighting throughout.

This combination of green energy and optimal thermal performance makes this property one of the most energy-efficient in Scotland. High-quality fixtures and fittings have been used throughout, including Italian limestone and solid oak floors, oak-glazed and panelled doors, redwood facings and skirting boards.

Rooms of note include a bright and airy family room with a multi-fuel stove set on a slate hearth with a full height natural stone fireplace, solid oak flooring and timber-framed windows on three sides, some of which are full length, and a dining room which has a French door leading out to the courtyard area at the rear.

There is also a stylish kitchen, gorgeous drawing room and four bedrooms, all en suite, plus a fifth one which could also be used for other purposes.

  • Guide price £795,000; Savills; 01738 477525.
