It is sometimes the most basic of names which hold the most meaning and Ar Dachaigh is no exception.
Granted, it is perhaps a mouthful for non-Gaelic speakers but translates as our house – it sums up this family home perfectly.
Ar Dachaigh can be found in Redhill near Inverness and offers truly breathtaking views from all angles.
With expansive countryside and the Moray Firth on your doorstep, those in search of the good life may feel that Ar Dachaigh is indeed their house within minutes of stepping over the threshold.
The four-bedroom detached property comes with five acres of land, a separate farmhouse called Redhill Farm and two semi-detached cottages.
An extensive range of farm buildings will come with the sale alongside 202 acres of farmland.
So if you’re thinking of a complete change of life and want to start a new venture, this gorgeous site may well be for you.
First to Ar Dachaigh, where technology has been put to good use in this modern pad.
Underfloor heating has been installed throughout the ground floor so you can stay particularly cosy in the winter months.
The dining room has views to the south and is incredibly versatile.
It could easily be transformed into a further guest bedroom, serviced by a shower room which is also on the ground floor.
The sitting room has a wood burning stove set in a marble hearth and a double aspect window.
Out in the sticks doesn’t have to mean lack of modern touches however, and the living room offers an in-built sound system.
The dining kitchen is the perfect spot to bring the family together with plenty of space for dining furniture.
Double aspect windows offer views to the north and west and patio doors provide access to the gardens.
Three bedrooms can be found on the first floor, including the master bedroom.
This offers a built-in speaker sound system and double walk-in wardrobe.
Again, the very most has been made of the views with double aspect windows.
The remaining bedrooms are all of good size.
Come spring, you’ll be eager to spend time in the lovely gardens, the summerhouse in particular.
Alfresco dining on the timber deck with the hills of Glen Affric in the distance – what could be better?
A field adjoining the garden could be put to a variety of uses and you’ll have no problem encouraging wildlife as there’s even a pond to be discovered.
Redhill Farmhouse offers more traditional accommodation with a stone and slate exterior.
There are three double bedrooms, three public rooms, bathroom, shower room and milk house.
Although the farmhouse would benefit from modernisation, it provides spacious and comfortable accommodation.
The two semi-detached cottages, known as Redhill Cottages, could be used for a variety of purposes and one is currently let on a short assured tenancy.
Each cottage is of traditional harled stone and could even be the start of a holiday let venture thanks to the idyllic location.
The farmland on offer is split into 17 acres and is a mixture of grassland and arable.
Ar Dachaigh and Redhill Farm offer a secluded slice of rural paradise, not to mention potential business opportunities.
Offers for both sites would be preferable with the sale expected to go to closing date, although an offer on the separate properties would be considered.
Ar Dachaigh is on the market for offers over £350,000.
Offers for Redhill Farm, Redhill Cottages and subsequent farmland should be made in the region of more than £1,300,000.
