Between the towns of Beauly and Muir of Ord sits a house which enjoys uninterrupted views across the countryside towards the Kessock Bridge and beyond.
The area is Clashandorran and the house, Lanfine.
It’s a lovely four-bedroom detached villa home which has the potential to offer bed and breakfast to guests as three of the four bedrooms have en suite facilities.
Alternatively, that would make it ideal for families, especially teenagers, as the en suites would help avoid the morning stampede for the bathroom.
The house has many attractive features, starting with the entrance hall, which has a handy double cupboard providing good storage.
From here, there’s access to a ground-floor bedroom; bathroom and dining area, while stairs lead to the gallery landing.
The heart of this home, which is on the market at offers over £340,000, is the stylish, open-plan living room and dining area, the latter having a cathedral-style ceiling and French doors leading out to a lovely, sheltered decked area.
To the side of the French doors, and above – to ceiling height – are big windows which flood the area with natural light.
The lounge has a wood-burning stove which makes a nice focal point, while the location of the dining area means you are always guaranteed a nice view while you eat.
The kitchen is large and well appointed, and just off it, there’s a handy utility room.
The ground floor also has a second double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and an en suite. Stairs lead up to the spacious galleried landing area, from where there are further fine views to be appreciated via the cathedral-style windows.
From the hall there’s access to two further bedrooms, each with en suites, while two large walk-in cupboards provide further ample storage.
The house sits in a large plot and to the side there is a big, detached garage with power and light.
There’s also plenty of space for off-road parking, reached via a tarred gated driveway.
The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, while a series of stepping stones lead to an enclosed vegetable garden.
Throughout the garden, which is enclosed with a charming wooden picket fence, there’s a lovely selection of mature shrubs and plants all adding year-round interest.
Lanfine is located around two miles from Beauly and one mile from Muir of Ord.
It’s a rural location yet within easy access of an excellent range shops and village amenities, including primary school and train station.
Beauly has a good range of local shops and stores, banks, hotels, guest houses and garage, together with a regular bus and train service to and from the city of Inverness.
