A stunning, distinctive New England Style detached home with unrestricted views over the sparkling waters of the Beauly Firth.

Wisteria is a stunning, south facing home reminiscent of traditional vernacular houses from the south-east of England, from where the origin of the style was exported to the American continent. The New England style is typified by its distinctive look, pitched roofs and large open porch. The property is of timber frame construction clad in pre-coated Cape Cod timber weather boarding. For further information on the supplier of the weather boarding please see email link below:

This beautiful beachside home was inspired by the owner’s love of travelling and all things nautical. The vision for the home has been totally self-inspired and the design fully bespoke which has resulted in the creation of a spacious, flexible living space with accommodation arranged over two levels.

This is a strikingly attractive family home located in the village of North Kessock, commanding exceptional views of the Beauly Firth and beyond and will attract a variety of buyers, including those looking for a large family home to those looking for a property with excellent bed and breakfast opportunities.

Access to the property is through the entrance vestibule and leads into the hallway which has lots of useful storage space. The front facing sitting room with woodburning stove enjoys lovely views over the water. On the other side of the hallway is a large double bedroom with storage cupboard and en suite bathroom, a wc/cloak and the dining room with ample space for a large table and chairs. This leads into a contemporary kitchen which comes with a comprehensive range of Ashely Ann wall and base storage units with a host of integrated Neff appliances (full height fridge, freezer, microwave oven and dishwasher), centre island, Rangemaster and walk in larder. Large French doors to the rear flood the kitchen with light as well as open up onto a rear terrace which is great in the summer months. A staircase located off the kitchen leads upstairs to a private area of the house which makes the ideal home office/study or bedroom if required. The utility room has ample additional storage and space for white goods and gives access to the integral garage. This is a drive through garage with two up and over doors at either end. It also has power and lighting.

The main staircase leads upstairs to three beautifully presented double bedrooms, all with excellent en suite facilities. In addition there is a sitting room/bedroom, plenty of storage and a walk in dressing room.

Outside

A stone chipped driveway provides ample parking space for several vehicles. The gardens are enclosed and landscaped for ease of maintenance. A pathway leads through the rear garden to a large detached workshop with a floored attic space above. This also houses the oil tank. Subject to the appropriate permissions, this area provides excellent further development potential. We understand that a yacht mooring is available. Additional information available on request.

Situation

With its easy access to Inverness, the property is well served by this modern and vibrant city with excellent and varied facilities, including a marina and airport. Yet, just a short distance from the centre of this city is the beautiful, peaceful and unspoilt countryside for which the Highlands are so famous. To the west are dramatic mountains and a stunning coastline, while to the east the fertile land is bounded by wide sandy beaches and rugged moorland. This stunning landscape provides wonderful opportunities for sport and leisure, including golf at championship courses, sailing, mountain climbing and world class shooting, fishing and stalking. The area is renowned for its fair climate and rich farmland. This arable land, in conjunction with a backdrop of rugged hills, provides spectacular scenery with wonderful views. For the keen golfer there are two championship golf courses at Nairn as well as facilities at Royal Dornoch, Spey Valley and the Castle Stuart Golf Links. There is salmon fishing on the Rivers Nairn, Findhorn and Spey and shooting is readily available on local estates.

Inverness is very much the commercial and business centre for the Highlands of Scotland and is convenient for the Airport which is located to the east of the city only 11 miles away. The airport provides a variety of domestic and European flights. Inverness also has excellent public transport links with good bus and rail connections.
