Situated in an idyllic Highland hamlet just outside Beauly, this outstanding single-storey contemporary home has been designed to an exemplary level of elegant minimalism that complements the landscape and surrounding environment perfectly.

With a view of the Beauly Firth to the north and rolling agricultural land and forestry to the South, this 201m2 property is suitable for a family, especially one seeking somewhere to work remotely but with good services and schools within easy reach.

The property is accessed from a wide gravelled driveway that has a large parking area as well as a single garage. Horizontal boards and a zinc-clad roof add further to the striking contemporary look of the building, while solid timber doors and natural stone continue inside, offsetting the pristine lines of the pure white interior and limestone floors.

An open-plan living space spans the rear of the bungalow, encompassing a striking kitchen and dining area. Full-height windows and glazed doors wrap around three sides with a slightly more private seating area to one side, but that is still part of the overall open space.

The detailing of the gloss-fronted kitchen furnishing amplifies the exquisite styling throughout the space. [Poggenpohl??] Drawer and floor cabinets in striking grey and white are brought seamlessly together by expanses of high-quality polished work surfaces. The dining area overlooks a flagstone patio, and a long lawn gently slopes at the end, creating a borrowed landscape of the distant trees and mountains.

A small open-plan living space overlooking a verandah serves as an ante-room to a stunning principal bedroom that has access to a timber patio. Open-plan closet space is behind the sleeping area and offers a naturally lit dressing area that is as practical as it is elegant. The en-suite bathroom is large and clad with stone and features high-end sanitaryware, including a bath, a glass-enclosed shower with rain head and mosaic tiles, a wall-hung wash basin, and a WC.

Two further bedrooms are located at the front of the property, each with a bay window and built-in storage space. Close to the rooms is a family shower room.

A fourth bedroom is at the further end of the property; currently serving as a workroom, this room has substantial storage and a view of the driveway. An elegantly styled cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin is adjacent to this room.

Still immaculately designed and finished, a practical utility room and laundry are fitted with cabinets and work surfaces, giving access to the integral garage.

The garden is as elegantly minimalist as the rest of the property, with clearly defined areas for seating and planting that have been expertly designed to present a seamless blend of nature and modern aesthetics.

Stenigar is a rare property that fits the Scottish landscape so beautifully, but it can easily be found in the pages of any high-end lifestyle magazine. It offers an outstanding home for a family who enjoys combining rural life with modern luxury.
