Description

Just seven miles from Invermoriston and along a beautiful leafy lane, this outstanding rural property is an accessible but private, luxurious family home.

Set in the middle of ¾ acres of sumptous gardens and grounds, the house is surrounded by mature trees, gravel paths, and has access to its own stretch of a tributary of the River Moriston.
The property is accessed via a drive leading to a parking area and garage. Constructed in 1947 this unique house is clad in Norwegian Pine with white fenestration, giving it a pristine Northern European aesthetic that fits very well with its surroundings. From the first moment of walking in, the house exudes warmth and comfort with natural wood joinery, doors and flooring. Added to its neutral décor, this creates a modern and welcoming ambience that emphasises its substantial 123 m2 space.

A vestibule opens into a large hallway, which opens into the main reception spaces that spans the westerly-facing side of the property. The living room has two expanses of windows that overlook the garden, and features pristine white walls, and a large wood-burning stove with stainless steel flue. There is an adjoining reception room that could serve as a smaller, more private sitting room, or as a home office.

Continuing along the extent of the garden facing side of the house, the kitchen-dining room is clad with white tongue-and-groove panelling and tiles which capture the light creating a beautifully airy space. The split U-shaped kitchen surrounds a Rangmaster stove, and wooden-fronted cabinets are offset with stylish acrylic worktops. A substantial utility room lies beyond the kitchen, and provides access to the garden.

The principal bedroom is on the ground floor, offering another beautiful garden view from a different perspective; this long room benefits from a walk-in wardrobe and the room has been finished in white with a wooden floor; the en-suite shower room is decorated with an elegant petrol blue field, with white tiling below and has a shower enclosure, WC and wash hand basin.

The ground floor family bathroom is sumptuous with a large whirlpool bath, WC and wash hand basin.

Carpeted stairs, lit from a large skylight, lead to an intriguing long landing with a sloping ceiling on one side.

The first floor has four substantial bedrooms with clean, contemporary lines, fabulous views, and coombed ceilings. The two gable end rooms each have en-suite shower room with a WC and wash hand basin. A further en-suite bedroom room has charming proportions and a Jack and Jill shower room that opens to the landing. The fifth bedroom is the smallest but is still generously sized.

The immaculate garden is partly enclosed with fencing and has an extensive, and pristinely maintained lawn. A large timber outbuilding includes a substantial log store, and there is also a small, wire enclosed kitchen garden with beds. The garden also has a timber patio and an area of soft surface suitable for use as a child’s play space.

Caledonia House is an outstanding house in a stunning location. Its striking contemporary styling and elegant interiors make this a wonderful home for a family. It offers the prospect of an exceptional property, and given its generous proportions and grounds, consideration as a potential investment.

The Victorian era has left a lasting and captivating mark on Invermoriston with structures like the Glenmoriston and Torgoyle Bridges.
