Description

Just 50 miles from Inverness and in an enviable position overlooking the Dornoch Firth, Hill Cottage enjoys a private but accessible setting. Constructed in 1854 and beautifully restored and extended, it is in beautiful condition and tastefully decorated throughout. Nestled in manageable grounds with an elevated view, this 196m2 property is a sumptuous and iconic home that invites early viewing.

Seen from the road, it is impressively surrounded by trees, lawns, and old stone walls. Access to the house is via a long driveway with outbuildings, a single garage, and parking that gives way to a gated garden. A meandering crazy paved path passes a small, charming, whitewashed outbuilding, offering space as a practical garden shed or potentially a delightful Wendy house.

The property opens into a hall with a mix of exposed stone walls and white panelling. The large living room is centred around a generous hearth with a wooden beam over-mantle and wood-burning stove. The room is elegant and beckoning, carpeted in tartan and finished in white. The south-facing conservatory overlooks the Fearn Peninsula.

The kitchen dining room is a beautifully designed vast space with white-panelled cabinets and long expanses of wooden work surfaces. Deep windows, exposed walls, and timber-lined ceiling add to the luxurious feel, while a Belfast sink, and LPG Leisure range stove accentuate the country ambience, further enhanced by natural stone wall and floor tiles. A large adjoining utility room is finished in white with a black and white floor.

The ground-floor bathroom is finished in a striking arrangement of mid-grey metro tiles, offsetting simpler white tiling. It has high-quality sanitaryware, including a curved shower enclosure, WC, and double vessel wash hand basins. A mosaic-tiled archway leads to the bath.

A carped timber staircase opens onto a landing with a small gallery space and four bedrooms; the principal bedroom is panelled on the gable end and has two charming narrow windows with shutters and a deeper dormer window.

The second gable bedroom is finished with white tongue-and-groove panelling, and a chimneypiece offers a focal point in this large room. Two further bedrooms are well-proportioned, one featuring pretty flamingo wallpaper. All the bedrooms have heavily coombed ceilings, lending additional character and charm, but due to each room’s generous proportions, does not impede the space.

The family shower room is finished with attractive iridescent mosaic tiles and has a wooden vanity with a wash hand basin, WC and walk-in shower.

The extensive grounds have gravelled utility areas, lawns, and patios. Areas of natural habitat surround the property with mature trees, shrubbery, and stone walls, creating an idyllic backdrop that sits beautifully in the Scottish landscape.

This is an outstanding family property in a fantastic location. It offers a beautiful country home with a luxurious feel, offset by an accessible, relaxed edge and is expected to be a popular addition to Hamish Homes’ portfolio
