Be completely and utterly enchanted by this 130 year old heritage brick and sandstone home. Originally built in the 1880's as a working farmhouse, it retains the character and charm of yesteryear but offers all modern conveniences and comfort levels from a combustion wood fireplace to Brivis gas central heating and reverse cycle split aircon.
It is ideal for groups wanting to holiday or celebrate together in the Highlands, offering space and privacy for all. With numerous entertaining rooms, 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms it can accommodate 17 guests in comfort. The home and garden are also an ideal location for a small wedding or event with all inclusive catering packages available.
There are two main living areas: an informal central family room with wood heater and the formal lounge/dining area with TV/DVD and access to both the covered bbq terrace and the sun drenched northern verandah via French doors. There are games, books, magazines and DVD's to keep everyone entertained.
The kitchen is a chef's delight, ideal for catering with double commercial St George oven including warmers and a servery through to the main dining room. It is fully equipped including a Nespresso coffee machine, mix master and ceramic cook top. There is also a walk-in-pantry and extra large fridge. An additional drinks fridge is located on the terrace verandah. Both the kitchen and the living/dining room lead out onto the covered terrace with tables for 8-10 and 6-8 and bbq, deck chairs, daybed and low-line sofa.
The garden is almost an acre and boasts seasonal nooks for all occasions, whether it be scones on the verandah, a romantic garden bench, a quiet spot to read or the fountain and rose garden ideal for a small wedding.
