Close to the RSPB reserve Loch Ruthven, An Ath Dhoras forms part of a late Victorian converted steading. The stone building surrounds a grass courtyard, and the property opens into a U-shaped contemporary kitchen. Pale wood-fronted cabinets are topped with dark worktops, and there is a view over the lawn in the centre of the steading and the hills beyond are beautiful.

The vestibule opens into a long, light-filled corridor that leads into a comfortable sitting room with a freestanding woodburner on a slate hearth; a black iron flue rises through the property. A deep window faces the delightful sunroom opposite.

Glazed doors lead to a corridor with two charming bedrooms. The principal room is generously proportioned and prettily decorated with floral wallpaper and a gentle colour palette. A deep window overlooks the courtyard.

A smaller bedroom is adjacent, offering a generous amount of space and another pleasant view of the steadings.

The sunroom has windows on three sides and overlooks a gravel and lawn garden that slopes up to give a view of the surrounding countryside.

Within the grounds stands a large garage along with a workshop.

A tiled bathroom with a bath and a shower over it, a WC, and a contemporary wash hand basin are next to the kitchen.

This truly lovely property offers tremendous potential and will make a fabulous home for a couple or small family looking for a country residence close to Inverness.
