If you are looking for a property that offers the best of both worlds, Highfield in the hamlet of Gorthleck, might just be what you are looking for.
Surrounded by tranquil countryside and just a 30 minute drive to the heart of Inverness, the three bedroom detached house enjoys panoramic views across picturesque Loch Mhor.
For those looking for a country house, or perhaps a holiday home, that offers the convenience of being part of a friendly community, yet is within easy reach of city attractions such as the cinema, theatre and restaurants, it may be ideal.
In excellent condition throughout, the house has double glazing, oil-fired central heating while a lovely stone-brick feature fireplace in the lounge, housing a gravity fed oil fire, makes for a unique focal point and makes this room especially warm and cosy on long winter nights.
The accommodation consists of an entrance vestibule with glass door leading to the inner hallway. There’s an L-shaped hall with storage cupboards and from the hall there’s access to all the main rooms.
The spacious lounge enjoys fine views across Loch Mhor, while the large kitchen has ample room for dining and a good selection of base and wall mounted units with tiled splashback, a separate island, integrated induction hob, electric oven, dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer. It also has a nice stone brick feature focal, this time housing the Raeburn.
There’s also a utility room with space for washing machine and tumble dryer, again with wall and base units, single sink and drainer. The conservatory has a patio door leading to the rear garden, while a separate dining room enjoys the same spectacular views across the countryside.
Other accommodation in the house which is on the market at offers over £340,000 includes a double bedroom with fitted double wardrobes and currently used as an office; a second double bedroom with fitted double wardrobes and a master bedroom with fitted double wardrobes and a large en-suite with three piece suite.
The family bathroom is a lovely large room with a WC, basin, bath and separate double shower cabinet.
While the house has plenty of space for a family to grow, the same could be said of the outside as the house sits in generous gardens, stretching to three and a half acres of land. The gardens are laid mainly to lawn with a good selection of mature trees and bushes. There’s also a paved area for alfresco dining.
The double garage is adjoining the property and has power and light, and a remote overhead door, while a gravel drive to the front, side and rear, means there’s plenty of space for parking vehicles.
Everyday essentials can be found in the nearby village of Foyers, while Fort Augustus has additional facilities. Gorthleck has a primary school while transport to Inverness Royal Academy is available for secondary school pupils.
