Property Description

Tenure: Freehold



Dating from circa 1833, with alterations by Alexander Ross and formerly known as Glenshiel Manse, Duich House is a striking double-fronted Georgian property offering more than 3,900 sq. ft. of light-filled accommodation arranged over four floors, configured to maximise the stunning views over Loch Duich. This elegant country home is privately situated and very well proportioned and has retained a host of original period features including sash windows, high ceilings with fine cornicing and some original fireplaces. The ground floor accommodation flows from a quarry-tiled reception hall with modern family bathroom and briefly comprises a large 23 ft. drawing room and a large utility room with original cast iron open range, twin Belfast sinks and inter-connecting laundry and store rooms.

On the first floor there is a spacious sitting room with feature open fireplace, a generous dining room with feature cast iron open fireplace and a neighbouring rear aspect kitchen with a range of wall and base units, worktops, room for integrated appliances, space for a table for more informal meals and a hatch to the dining room.

The second floor accommodates four of the property's six double bedrooms, three with feature cast iron fireplaces, together with a modern family bathroom. The property's two remaining bedrooms, both with feature open fireplaces, and a third modern family bathroom can be found on the third floor.

Loch Duich is a sea loch located on the western coast of Scotland in the Highlands, home to a family of otters, the famed Eilean Donan Castle and a Nature Conservation Marine Protected Area set against the stunning backdrop of the Five Sisters of Kintail. The area offers a plethora of walking and climbing opportunities, together with fishing and watersports on the loch. The small village of Ratagan lies on the southwestern shore of Loch Duich and has a youth hostel and an eponymous forest. Encircled by steep mountains, Glenshiel has a range of amenities including a popular inn. Known as the Gateway to Skye, Kyle of Lochalsh village is located on the Lochalsh peninsula opposite the village of Kyleakin on the Isle of Skye, accessible over the Skye Bridge, and offers a wider range of shopping and service amenities together with a public hall, harbour and marina. The area offers a wide variety of outdoor pursuits including hiking, sea fishing, kayaking, sailing and scuba diving. The Highland capital of Inverness lies approximately 68 miles to the east with an airport opening up travel to several UK cities and to Europe.

Communications links are good: the nearby A87 trunk road links to Inverness and Kyle of Lochalsh station offers regular services to Inverness with its onward links to major regional and national centres.

Occupying an elevated position, the property is approached through a five-bar gate over a driveway to a gravelled forecourt providing parking for multiple vehicles. Shallow steps with cast iron handrails rise to the front door. The well-maintained garden is laid mainly to lawn and wildflower pasture, bordered by mature shrubs and a wooded backdrop and features a large stone-built barn with glazing to three aspects, suitable for a variety of uses, the whole enjoying panoramic views over Loch Duich towards the 5 Sisters of Kintail. The grounds extend to approx. 2 acres and includes a stone built steading which is party floored and is currently used for storage and a summer house. A small bridge leads over the burn running through the garden grounds to the walled garden area which has been used for growing vegetables, and could be developed further subject to the appropriate planning (www.highland.gov.uk).
