This fabulous rural detached property is an exceptional addition to Hamish’s portfolio. Constructed in 1993, Woodacre is a substantial one-and-a-half-storey detached house set in extensive grounds covering over an acre, surrounded by woodland, open countryside, and a lochside location.

Access to the property is via a private drive which opens onto lawns, gravelled paths, and ponds; trees and nature abound in this exquisite location, and the house is full of windows to take advantage of this and its fabulous south-facing view looking across Loch Mhor.

At 227 m2 this is a substantial family home, and its rooms are large and welcoming, arranged to make the most of its environment. For those who enjoy entertaining or having guests stay, this is a wonderful space that will not just impress but will also accommodate friends and family comfortably.

The main living room is generously appointed, and its wood-burning stove creates a cosy retreat. The kitchen is spacious and features a striking pillar box gas range with extensive wooden floor and wall cabinets, and there is a large area for dining in the centre of the kitchen, plus a second wood-burning stove. There is a separate, large and well-equipped utility room.

This property is unique in that it has a second smaller but still generous kitchen; it is located close to a bedroom on the ground floor, with access to an ensuite shower room and a conservatory that opens directly into the garden. This space would make a fabulous self-contained apartment for parents, an older child, or even as a holiday let, giving the new owner a potential source of income.

On the ground floor is a second bedroom with close access to another shower room. Depending on the intended use of the property, this space has the scope to become a very well-appointed office or studio.

A double flight dog leg staircase leads to the top of the house; its one and half storey design creates fabulous character and atmosphere, with coombed ceilings and many windows that attract so much light.

There are three further bedrooms on the first floor; two are currently used as offices, but all three have built-in storage; the principal bedroom has an adjoining room used as a gym, but this could also create a spacious, light-filled child’s bedroom.

There is an impressive family bathroom with a striking bathtub, walk-in shower, white WC and a large wash hand basin. The generous vanity offers masses of storage.

The rear vestibule would make a handy mud room with access to the extensive gardens and grounds with many mature trees, areas of lawn, and a double garage.

Woodacre is a fabulous property for someone looking for a substantial family home with income potential in a rural setting, but just 20 miles from the centre of Inverness. Early viewing is definitely advised.
