Overlooking a green in the delightful village of Cannich, this charming cottage was constructed in 1960, and enjoys a generously sized corner location. It is in beautiful setting close to the River Glass, with extensive views of hills, and is just a short walk from the village centre which benefits form good road links to Beauly, Drumnadrochit, and Inverness.

The principal entrance is via a timber-fenced front garden that has been laid with gravel and forms a generous parking area; a garage is also accessible. The front vestibule opens into a pleasantly shaped hallway attractively finished in white with varnished timber joinery.

The living room, with space for dining at one end, has long proportions, and a view to the front of the house, and recently installed south-east-facing French windows that open to the garden. A slate hearth, with a woodburning stove, sits on a high-quality polished floor.

The double-aspect kitchen has been finished to a very high standard with white walls and grey and ecru tiles; there are plentiful floor and wall cabinets arranged in a U-shape with white doors and an oiled wooden worktop, creating a strong contemporary aesthetic.

The stairwell is painted in an attractive sage green, leading to a tidy landing with a casement window that overlooks the village and hills.

The principal bedroom is painted in pale grey. It has excellent proportions that provide plenty of room and a good-height ceiling that emphasizes the sense of space. This room has a fabulous view of the village green and surrounding landscape.

The second bedroom has an alcove creating interest in the space and windows looking to the north and east. It is painted white and has one wall finished with paper featuring a tree design. The smallest bedroom is decorated in blue and has a recessed storage area and a large window.

An attractive shower room is well finished with white tiles with black and silver details, and has a shower enclosure, a WC, and an inset wash hand basin.

The garden is enclosed with a hedge and timber fencing and is accessed from the living room. French windows open onto the timber deck which leads into the long garden that is laid mainly with lawn and gravel paths; there are timber sheds at the far end.

At 86 m2, this charming cottage is beautifully proportioned, and its renovations have been approached with care and attention to detail using high-end materials and finishes. A little decorative care is still required, but its excellent rural location and unique style gives this evolving project the potential of becoming an even more delightful and contemporary property with just the right amount of quirkiness. It offers a fabulous home for a family or professional couple willing to work remotely or commute to nearby areas such as Inverness or Dingwall, and early viewing is advised.
