We’re used to big stores offering buy one, get one free deals, but it’s not often you find a similar-style deal available on a property.
In Ardross, around four miles from Alness, sits a beautiful, modern home, Cor Tollie.
The impressive architect-designed house sits in bonnie countryside and enjoys far-reaching views towards Ben Wyvis.
On the market at offers over £545,000, it comes with a second home, Tollie Cottage, which sits next to the main house.
A beautifully appointed self-catering cottage, it has the feel of a luxury city-centre apartment.
It’s been used as a holiday let since 2012 and provided many guests with an unforgettable holiday experience.
The cottage has an open-plan kitchen, dining area and lounge with log-burning stove; double bedroom and bathroom, while the converted loft space can be used as a twin bedroom or private seating area.
There’s two large patios, ideal for dining alfresco and soaking up the peaceful atmosphere.
There’s a chance to buy all the furniture in it, subject to separate negotiation.
As for the main house, it’s a great example of what happens when you bring together bespoke design and a good imagination.
Entrance is via a large reception hall which doubles as a sitting area.
It’s an impressive entrance, thanks to a blend of space, size and nice touches such as Chinese slate and oak flooring and contemporary decor.
The stylish open-plan kitchen is very much at the heart of this house and features a good range of units teamed with granite worktops, a Rayburn, central island and a host of integrated appliances.
The dining area has plenty of space for those who like entertaining, and there’s fine views to be enjoyed from here.
There’s an enormous lounge, bathroom and laundry/utility room on the ground floor, and at the rear of the hall, there’s direct access to the integral double garage.
A bespoke oak staircase leads up to a magnificent galleried landing used as a study/reading area, but thanks to the views, it’s also a nice place to just sit and look out the window.
The master bedroom is beautifully proportioned and comes with a dressing area and en suite bathroom.
Further accommodation on this level includes a guest bedroom with en suite, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Although it’s a large house, it could be even bigger as the loft area has further development potential, subject to the appropriate permissions.
Outside, the house is surrounded by mature, well-established but easily maintained grounds which include an orchard, pond, garden sheds and terraces.
A gated driveway provides ample parking for several vehicles and along with the double garage, there’s a handy car port.
