An extended former schoolhouse could become the dream home for someone in the market for a peaceful property in an idyllic Highland setting.
Situated in the picturesque rural village of Linsidemore near Lairg, The Old Schoolhouse is a traditional-build property with spacious, bright rooms and a calm air.
And it’s not just its interiors that provide a sense of peace, for this house is blessed with a tranquil countryside location and panoramic views across the Kyle of Sutherland and its rolling hills beyond.
On the market at offers over £190,000, one charming feature is the sun room, a living space flooded with natural light, thanks to its triple aspect windows framing the spectacular 360° views.
Joanne Stennett from selling agent Bell Ingram said: “There’s always so much charm and character in a property that has been repurposed and The Old Schoolhouse is certainly no exception.
“This property has the potential to make every day feel like one big school holiday.
“It offers an idyllic lifestyle thanks to its sought-after location while its heritage means buyers have the opportunity to secure their own little slice of local history.”
The property has been well maintained and would be suited equally well as a family home or holiday home or holiday let. Accommodation includes an entrance porch, four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a lounge, sunroom and a large kitchen dining area.
This has ample room for a large dining table and has a useful storage cupboard.
The kitchen area has a good range of units while the Creda electric oven, Zanussi washing machine, Bosch fridge freezer and Miele dishwasher are included in the sale.
Bedroom one is a double room with built-in wardrobe and fine views.
Across the hall is the bathroom which has a white three-piece suite and an overbath electric shower over. Respotex panelling around the bath makes for easy cleaning.
A door leads to the inner hall and sitting room with dual aspect windows enjoying panoramic views.
There’s a feature open fire with stone surround and hearth and from this room there’s access to the conservatory/sunroom.
There are three further bedrooms, including the master bedroom which enjoys views down the Strath to the mountains beyond, and comes complete with a built-in double wardrobe and vanity area and an en-suite bathroom with whirlpool bath.
The house also has a floored loft with light and power, accessed via a Ramsay ladder.
Outside the house, which sits in an elevated position, there is a small raised patio to the side, ideal for summer barbecues, plus a rockery and well-kept gardens.
And if it’s Scotland’s rich ecosystem that you’re interested in then consider The Old Schoolhouse your classroom – the Sutherland area is virtually untouched landscape and is a popular choice among birdwatchers and is set just a half hour’s drive away from beautiful beaches.
