***CLOSING DATE SET: WEDNESDAY 18TH APRIL 2018 AT 12 NOON*** A spectacular B listed period property set in large garden grounds, enjoying a stunning coastal setting on Plocktons pier at the edge of Loch Carron.
Tigh-An-Fhaing is a home truly at one with its surroundings. It has an ethereal feel thanks to its incredible position within the idyllic and much admired village of Plockton. The property, which sits within a conservation area, enjoys stunning views over the pier and across the glistening waters of Loch Carron to the mountains in the distance.
This substantial B listed home dates back to 1897 when it was built for the local doctor, John Matheson. It is imposingly sited adjacent to the pier. Over the years since 1897 it has been lovingly cared for and sympathetically maintained and extended. Originally built and designed as one, the house has been cleverly designed with the rear part of the house being adapted to provide self-catering accommodation and the rest of the house providing owners accommodation. This part of the house known as Tigh-An-Roinn is successfully rented out and has proved to be very popular. One of the many features of this fantastic property is its flexibility. It could easily be converted back to one depending on the buyers requirements. The sale of the property will suit a variety of buyers, those looking for a comfortable holiday home in beautiful surroundings and equally those looking for a lifestyle opportunity. The area is very popular with the sailing fraternity and a mooring is available nearby if required.
The property is entered via a broad welcoming hallway leading to a spacious formal dining room with stone fireplace and inset wood burning stove. On the other side of the hall is the dining kitchen which comes with a selection of wall and base storage units, breakfast bar and Aga. A doorway from the kitchen leads to a beautifully proportioned bright and airy sunroom, which has great views and a convenient storage cupboard and shower room. A staircase from here leads to a floored attic which is currently used as a hobby room/studio. The main staircase leads to the first floor which has two front facing bedrooms, a family bathroom and a magnificent sitting room. The staircase continues upstairs to two attic bedrooms with coomb ceilings, stunning views and showering facilities.
Tigh-An-Roinn can be entered from a door off the kitchen of the main house, but also has its own private entrance to the side. A large front porch leads to the sitting room with multi fuel burner, family bathroom and galley style kitchen. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms with fantastic views, one with en suite toilet and wash hand basin. Additional information is available at www.cottages.com/cottages/tigh-an-roinn-sgf
This property has 0.6 acres of land.
Gated driveway providing ample off street parking leading to a detached single garage. Large garden grounds laid mainly to lawn with derelict outbuilding providing further development potential subject to the appropriate planning permission. Stunning views from the gardens over the village and beyond.
Plockton is considered one of the UKs most beautiful locations and enjoys a mild climate due to the Gulf Stream. Gaily painted cottages, lines of palm trees on the waterfront and a backdrop of stupendous wooded crags lend Plockton an exotic charm that is rarely found in Highland villages. Sheltered by a headland from the wind and open sea, the small community is located at the mouth of Loch Carron. There are un-spoilt sandy beaches on the seaward shore, reached only by footpaths, and a maze of narrow lanes explore the hinterland of forests, lochs, mountains and moors. Plockton was developed as a herring port in the early 19th century and is now a haven for summer visitors including artists and yachtsmen. In 1973 the village was the location for the feature film The Wicker Man and in 1995 Plockton was chosen for the popular television series Hamish MacBeth.
The village itself has its own reputable primary and secondary schools and a good local village store that provides for everyday needs and requirements. Plockton village also has a number of inns, small hotels, restaurants and pubs. There are endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits which include hillwalking, sailing, golf and fishing with stalking and shooting available on nearby estates. Moorings for boats are available in the bay. Nearby Plockton airstrip, built by the Royal Engineers in 1966, is available for use by private light aircraft. The village is also served by rail from Inverness. The Inverness to Kyle line was featured in a series by Michael Palin who stated that this was one of the most beautiful railway journeys in the world.
On entering the village via Innes Street follow the road round to the left into Harbour Road. Continue along and turn first right into Cooper Street. Follow the signs for the main pier and pontoon and then follow the road along to the very end where you will find the property on the right hand side.
