Located approximately ten miles from Wick and in an enviable landscape, the charming settlement of Lyth is a quiet rural hamlet that has great community engagement, including many local activities, and the mainland’s most northerly arts centre.

Kestrel View is a large bungalow in a fabulous rural setting with Loch Wester to the South and the North Sea to the East. Enjoying privacy, peace, and dark skies, the property offers scope as a beautiful family home, especially for those that enjoy outdoor pursuits. Given its setting and access to country lanes, with appropriate permissions, the potential for equestrian use is considerable, as is the prospect of installing a small private observatory or guest accommodation.

The property was constructed in 2009 and has a generous interior space of 141 m2; it is approached from a large timber-enclosed driveway laid with gravel, and planning permission has been approved to construct a new garage and extend the bedroom.

The hallway leads to a living room with a large picture window overlooking Loch Wester. A contemporary stove creates a lovely focal point, accentuating the room’s cosy and welcoming ambience.

A standout feature of the property is its magnificent country-style open-plan kitchen and living room. Centred around a large granite-topped island, the kitchen’s L-shaped arrangement includes a 90cm Belling Range with a fabulous black mirrored splashback. Beyond the island is a deep brick-lined hearth housing a wood burner stove, creating a relaxing seating area and an open-plan area for relaxation. A long dining room leads off the kitchen with two windows giving fabulous views of the local landscape. A small utility space is close to the entrance of the property.

Each of the four bedrooms enjoys the same fabulous views as the rest of the property. The rooms are spacious and uniquely decorated with high-quality wallpapers and light wood finishes, giving a feeling of elegance and a traditional country ambience. Every room has a mirror-fronted built-in wardrobe.

The principal bedroom benefits from a spacious en-suite shower room with a grey vanity unit, white WC, inset wash hand basin, and walk-in enclosure. A large window provides a good amount of natural light.

The smallest bedroom is generously sized and could be considered a useful home office or workspace.

The family bathroom has blue splash areas around the bath, white sanitary ware and a bath with a shower over it.

Outside, the garden is enclosed with low level timber fencing, giving long-reaching views over the countryside; a large timber deck leads down to a lawn. The front and rear gardens are extensive and, subject to relevant permissions, offer considerable potential to include outbuildings, and given its proximity to a loch this could include a bird-watching hide, plus patios and sheltered growing areas.

Kestrel View is a fantastic family home with outstanding potential for different uses. Its peaceful, natural setting and dramatic location make this property one that can be used extensively for work and play, and early viewing is advised.
