Exquisite country property in outstanding rural setting with breathtaking views
Every aspect of this fantastic property has a wow factor, from the beautiful setting, the careful design of the interior, the exceptional gardens and extended land, and of course, its majestic outlook over some of Scotland’s most impressive scenery.
As its name implies, this lovely house is situated on the top of a hill looking down over rolling lawns, trees and mountains. Nestled amongst mature woodland and on a site of just over 1 acre, Hillcrest is a private and opulent property but is not so isolated that it is too far away.
In a grand setting of gravelled drives and rockeries, surrounded by mature gardens and trees, the property property is on an adopted road minutes from the A835 which has easy access to Dingwall railway station, and is only 32 minutes by road to Inverness, and approximately 45 minutes from Ullapool. Inverness Airport is just 40 minutes away.
Entering via a stunning hallway, the property features a comfortable and ground floor television room, with a wallpapered feature wall and patio doors leading onto decking with a contemporary glass balcony. The view from this room is simply gorgeous.
The kitchen, also with exceptional views, is large and L-shaped, allowing space for a generous dining area. The kitchen units incorporate a small breakfast bar, and the room is beautifully designed and decorated with an attractive glazed door, wooden worktops, and a modern aesthetic that fits perfectly well in the country setting. Benefiting from a wood-burning stove and an Rangemaster multifuel range, the kitchen is charming and welcoming with decking that is accessed by French doors. There is also a generous utility room and boiler room.
The three bedrooms on the ground floor offer a wide range of accommodation at this level. The principal bedroom is a long room, ending with a glorious view from the French windows and glass balcony. This room is decorated in light colours and offers a pretty space as a principal bedroom.
One of the bedrooms has been utilised as a large study is wonderfully decorated in warm colours and features a decorative living flame fire and mantelpiece; it has a tartan carpet and a picture window overlooking the garden.
The ground floor bathroom comprises a bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin and is tiled and decorated in white.
Upstairs a fourth bedroom is pretty with wooden features, a coombed ceiling, and an en-suite shower room decorated in blue with white sanitaryware.
A second living room is on this floor, with a unique glazed door, wood-burning stove, and yet another magnificent view from a cathedral-height window with a glass balcony overlooking the garden and glens. This is a beautiful room that is relaxing and light-filled and has considerable potential and offers a number of uses.
Outside is a blue-painted timber summerhouse with a wood-burning stove, carport, and garage. The gardens are sumptuous, with lawns and mature shrubbery leading into a gated small orchard with a variety of fruit trees.
Hillcrest is an exceptional house and a magnificent family home and offers the type of incredible idyllic Scottish setting that makes the pages of glossy magazines. Early viewing is definitely recommended.
Nestled within the stunning landscape of the Scottish Highlands, Strathpeffer and its surrounding villages offer an irresistible charm, from its rich history and breathtaking natural beauty to its warm-hearted community.
At just 20 miles from the City of Inverness and five miles from Dingwall, Stathpeffer is an important landmark in Victorian history. Formerly a spa town with a population today of just over 1000, Strathpeffer, along with its neighbouring villages, is a busy cultural centre that still retains the Victorian splendour of its heyday.
Despite its small population, Strathpeffer and its environs boast a diverse and robust economy that contributes to the livelihoods of its residents. Tourism plays a significant role in the village’s economic landscape, drawing visitors from around the world to experience its charm and explore its surroundings. Historic Victorian architecture contributes to Strathpeffer’s appeal as a tourist destination, and the village has managed to strike a delicate balance between preserving its historical heritage and adapting to modern tourism.
