Just 30 minutes from Inverness, this spectacular country property enjoys one of the most beautiful settings in Northern Scotland. Situated in over three acres of private gardens, this 213m2 family home has been tastefully designed to create an elegant yet comfortable residence for a large family and their guests.

Already enjoying privacy given its location, the house is up a sweeping gravel drive flanked by parking areas and lawns. A large, covered timber carport and single garage lie to one side. Initially constructed in 2002 and extended further, Anam Cara is in immaculate condition and is well-decorated throughout.

A natural timber portico opens into a large open-plan dining kitchen. With the iconic styling of a country kitchen, the layout is in an L-shape with large expanses of granite work surfaces. The kitchen is in a blue ground palette with timeless coloured tiles adding to the informality and rural look. This is complemented by a glass extractor hood and stove top on the kitchen island. A separate, panelled utility room is to one side with an extensive length of additional cabinetry and space for appliances.

The dining area leads into a cheerful ante-room with a window facing the garden; finished in pale yellows, this space is comfortable and relaxed.

With a vast amount of space, the lounge has a large, contemporary wood-burning stove with exposed flue and slate hearth. Double-aspect windows and glazed doors to the kitchen-dining room ensure the room is filled with natural light. The fabulous sunroom further enhances this. Featuring a tall gable window and decorated in soft whites that complement the wooden joinery, this space gives exquisite views of the gardens.

A small inner hallway houses the main entrance and opens onto a cloakroom with a wash hand basin and WC.

Beyond lies the ground floor bedroom; this room has partially coombed ceilings on two sides and offers the potential as a comfortable guest bedroom or office.

An attractive timber staircase opens onto a large landing and three further bedrooms; the principal bedroom is part of a suite comprising a bedroom, a generous dressing room with additional built-in space, and a fantastic private balcony. There is also a large en-suite bathroom with a bath with a shower over it, a WC and bidet, and a large basin.

Two further bedrooms are elegantly decorated in soft colours with coombed ceilings, large windows, and additional skylights; one has a door that opens into the family bathroom.

The family bathroom has striking contemporary decor, a bath with a shower over it, a WC, and a wash-hand basin.

At over three acres, the garden is a key feature of what is already a fabulous property. Featuring walled and terraced gardens, a kitchen garden, and areas of lawn and patio, as well as various outbuildings, these substantial grounds are further complemented by the surrounding natural environment that is visible from all directions.

This is an exceptional property in a stunning but accessible location. It is a beautiful home for a large family and offers a desirable and comfortable residence.
