Situated close to the beautiful area around the River Averon and three miles from the centre of Alness, Lon Nan Fail is a stunning property in a magnificent location. The house itself is neighbour to Ardross Castle (Traitors) and is a splendid setting for living country life.

Constructed in 2007, this impressive bungalow has been beautifully designed and is a substantial 201 m2. Finished in white with black details and approached by a sweeping gravel drive, the property has definite wow factor. It is decorated meticulously throughout and features high-quality materials and fittings, and offers a wonderful home for a family. The double garage has been converted to create a private annexe above it. This makes a wonderful private space for guests, or could be used as a detached holiday letting.

The large, welcoming hall sets the style for the property’s natural wood finishes and predominately neutral palette with the principal accommodation centering around the vast open-plan kitchen and family room. Finished with a polished wooden floor, the kitchen has an extensive array of wooden cabinetry topped with stone worksurface wrapped around the large island. This houses a six burner sunken gas hob, a range oven, and oiled wooden surfaces. Beyond the island is a comfortable dining and seating area with a stone-feature wall and wood burning stove, and French windows open onto a large patio. A separate utility area, with a Belfast sink and generous storage, and a tiled mud room are attached to the kitchen.

The sitting room is designed and decorated to lend a traditional feel to the property. It has a stone mantelpiece and cast-iron grate. Two windows and large patio doors that open into the garden provide natural light from three directions.

All the bedrooms are carpeted in a pale taupe colour and are each meticulously decorated. The principal bedroom has an open-plan sleeping area with a separate dressing and seating space. Large double-integrated wardrobes provide generous storage. Decorated in stylish dark brown paper and with yellow painted walls, the bedroom is sumptuous and echoes the styling of the rest of the house while retaining its own identity. Its en-suite shower room has natural light and is tiled all round. The sanitaryware includes a curved shower enclosure, WC and vessel basin on a high-quality wooden vanity.

Three further bedrooms are similar in size, each with large built-in wardrobes, and all are attractively decorated.

The family bathroom is another standout feature of the property and is finished with elegant black and white tiles and a striking floor, which echo the Edwardian style WC and wash handbasin. The integrated shower enclosure is fully tiled, but the key feature of the space is the stunning yellow claw foot bath that spans one corner.

The house opens onto a large patio with a pergola, that steps down into the large garden. This has an extensive lawn and is enclosed with a timber fence. Gravelled areas provide parking, play and utility areas. This is is an immaculately presented outdoor space that is simply, but beautifully, designed.

The double garage has been converted to include luxurious open-plan studio-flat accommodation above it, and is reached by a timber staircase that opens onto a private balcony. The accommodation includes an open-plan living room, kitchenette, bedroom, and dining area. A separate shower room is tiled in white and finished with high-quality materials and fittings.

Lon Nan Fail is an exceptional bungalow that offers a wonderful home for a family and their guests, as well as the prospect of a holiday letting property if desired. Its beautiful gardens and location make it highly desirable, and early viewing is advised.
