Ben Wyvis is a bonnie mountain but when there’s snow lying on it – as there is now – it looks spectacular.
Ardmore, a superb modern house in Newtonhill, an area within the scattered hamlet of Lentran near Inverness, is ideally placed to enjoy views of the mountain which looks fabulous when the setting sun hits it.
The house, completed just two years ago, enjoys fine views over the Beauly Firth to the Ben and Black Isle.
Finished to excellent standard and nicely laid out, it offers contemporary family accommodation, but has also been designed so that, at some point in the future, it’s possible to have a conservatory extension from the sitting room.
The ground floor accommodation consists of a generous hallway, large sitting room with bay window, impressive dining kitchen, utility room and a family bathroom.
Upstairs, there’s a master bedroom with luxury en suite shower room, two further good-sized bedrooms, another family bathroom and a fourth bedroom/office.
Rooms of note include the impressive sitting room which has a freestanding wood burning stove, tiled flooring and doors leading to the garden.
Wood burning stoves throw out a tremendous amount of heat, and as the house has high levels of insulation and solar panels, running costs are minimised.
The dining kitchen includes a central island with five-ring induction hob, quartz worktops, fitted double oven with integral microwave and coffee machine.
Along with a stylish en suite, the master bedrooms has its own dressing room.
Ardmore also comes with a rather nice extra feature…
Within the grounds, there’s a high specification outbuilding, completed to residential standards consisting of a garage and separate office/workroom on the ground floor and an open plan first floor with plumbing.
This flexible building could be used to create additional or letting accommodation, subject to gaining the necessary consents.
On the market at offers over £385,000, the house is surrounded by beautiful, unspoilt countryside which is a haven for many rare plants and wildlife.
There’s woodland walks nearby which can be accessed directly from the garden, and the area is ideal for cycling and hill walking. The house is also within easy reach of Beauly and Inverness.
