**Now Listed at £20,000 Below Valuation**. McEwan Fraser Legal are delighted to offer an exciting opportunity to purchase this beautifully presented and spacious Victorian five bedroom detached stone villa, built around 1880 and situated in the attractive rural hamlet of Croachy near Farr, only thirteen miles from Inverness. The original parsonage was funded by public subscription (including a contribution from Prime Minister W. E. Gladstone) and has been upgraded and improved in recent years whilst retaining a large proportion of the original period features including, for example, the original servant’s bells.

Having had a previous history as a successful Bed & Breakfast establishment, the property could readily revert back to that function, to take advantage of the tourist resurgence in the north of Scotland brought on by the success of the North Coast 500 driving route, as well being close to many other easily reached visitor attractions.

The accommodation of this lovely home is laid out over three floors with the ground floor consisting of lounge with multi-fuel stove, dual-aspect dining room with open fire and bay window, expansive sunroom with log burner, study, luxurious Ashley Ann type fitted kitchen with Rayburn cooker, Corian full heat resistant work surfaces and island unit (also includes integrated gas hob, double electric oven, microwave, fridge and dishwasher), utility room with underfloor heating & WC.

The upper floor has a split-level landing with bedroom and adjacent family bathroom with shower over bath to one side. Across the landing are four spacious additional bedrooms (three with en-suite). In addition, there is a large attic area with scope for further development.

The property benefits from lpg (gas) central heating and full secondary glazing.

The Old Parsonage sits in substantial garden grounds laid mainly to lawn offset with Scots pine, a large rockery, shrubs and Japanese themed garden with charming bridge and pond.

The large gravel driveway provides parking for a number of vehicles and leads to a substantial garage/workshop.

This exceptional property is a warm and welcoming family home with excellent business potential if required.

By appointment through McEwan Fraser Legal on McEwan Fraser Legal are open 7 days a week: 8am - Midnight Monday to Friday & 9am - 10pm Saturday & Sunday to book your viewing appointment.

Extras (Included in the sale): Fitted carpets, integrated Siemens kitchen appliances and timber shed. Other items of furniture and equipment may be available by separate negotiation.
