A highly desirable, approx. 9.5 acre small holding/lifestyle property on the rural fringes of Inverness, enjoying stunning views over the Moray Firth and the rolling countryside beyond.
Westhill View is a rarely available lifestyle property, set in wonderful, private, yet convenient surroundings, only 4 miles from the centre of Inverness. Set in manicured grounds with pretty gardens, flower rich meadows, lush paddocks, a duck pond, an orchard and an array of outbuildings, this is a home in an idyllic, wildlife haven, truly at one with its surroundings. The property enjoys lovely views over neighbouring farmland and beyond to the sparkling water of the Moray Firth towards Avoch, Munlochy and Ben Wyvis. The outlook might ooze countryside tranquillity, but this is a property with the best of both worlds, convenient for local amenities and the city centre buzz, yet secluded and private. This is a truly magnificent family home of immense quality and style which has been lovingly cared for by the same owners since it was architecturally designed and built in 1992. Since then it has been extended and a number of improvements have been made, creating a home stunning by design which is impeccably finished. The layout flows beautifully and the sleek design is very much focused on bringing the outside in. Expansive windows, high ceilings and the clever use of glass and doors, make the accommodation feel super airy and allow natural light to flood in.
The property is approached through wooden gates, the drive sweeps through the stunning landscaped grounds and leads to a circular driveway and garage. Access to the property is via the front entrance vestibule which leads to the hallway. The main front facing bay windowed sitting room, is beautifully proportioned and features include ceiling coving, wall mounted lights and a distinctive fireplace. The inner hallway leads past the staircase to the formal dining room which in turn opens up into a magnificent sun room with high ceiling, roof beams, and a free standing gas stove. This is a great part of the house for entertaining, and flows effortlessly. The contemporary kitchen has been replaced in the last few years and comes with a selection of wall and base storage units, granite worktops, Rangemaster and a range of integrated appliances which include fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. The kitchen opens up into an open plan family room/snug. The utility room is located off the kitchen and provides space for white goods and has a Belfast sink and further wall and base storage units. A staircase leads to the integral garage and an inner hallway which leads up to a home office/study.
A carpeted staircase leads upstairs to the landing. There are a total of 4 bedrooms, two of which have en suite facilities. There is also plenty of storage, and a family bathroom.
This property has 10 acres of land.
The stunning gardens and policies are a particular feature of Westhill View. Mainly laid to lawn, the mature landscaped gardens will suit a variety of potential buyers such as those looking for a property with equestrian opportunities or to graze cattle or sheep, as the current owners have done in the past. Set in approx.. 9.5 acres, the grounds include an orchard, duck pond, paddocks, shelters, greenhouse, tractor sheds and a large workshop/industrial outbuilding, all bounded by a number of fine mature specimen trees, attractive glades, stocked with a variety of shrubs, providing an explosion of colour. The grounds also feature expertly arranged sitting areas and terraces, made for BBQs and al fresco entertaining.
The property is located in a much admired, desirable location on the periphery of Inverness only a short distance from the city centre convenient for all aspects of daily life. There are countless things to see and do including Inverness Castle and the Cathedral. Eden Court Theatre is the city's main venue for drama and entertainment, presenting a varied year-round programme of shows to suit all tastes and there is an excellent selection of restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
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 7 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. There is a host of both primary and secondary options in and around Inverness and for the outdoor enthusiast a wide range of pursuits including fishing, cycling, water sports, hill walking and golfing.
