The property benefits from an elevated position and large windows to take in the spectacular view. There is parking for multiple vehicles and trailers and plenty of turning space. The entrance is gated and has a long driveway leading up to the house. The property is both rural and accessible, being only 10 minutes from the local GP and closest shop.
Internally, the property comprises 3 bedrooms (one of which is en suite), an office/workshop, utility space, a large lounge, an open plan kitchen/diner, and a bathroom. The open plan kitchen/diner benefits from large windows wihch perfectly capture the view of the acreage and beyond, and let in lots of natural light. The flooring is laid to wood and the kitchen cabinets are immaculate and modern. The kitchen area sits on a mezzanine and a step takes you down to the dining area which can easily accommodate a large dining table for multiple diners. The hallways are wide and spacious, with a large open space between the lounge and bedroom which has in the past been used as a home office area. The master bedroom has an en suite, and all the bedrooms are bright and airy, being neutrally decorated and well-maintained. The lounge is a big feature of the house, having a modern take on traditional decor, a fire, and feature windows to host the exceptional view. The property has double glazing and oil central heating, as well as an additional energy source via the solar panels on the roof.
Externally, there is a pond to the rear and a patio to the front of the property which is ideal for entertaining guests or enjoying the sunset and view after a long day's work. The 31 acres consists of farmland and a small plantation area. The land has been used to keep horses and there are some stables down the track from the house. The land extends all the way to the strath beyond the acreage and provides an excellent walking route for those who enjoy the outdoors. The land consists in the majority of arable land, with excellent grazing within the open areas to the East and the South-facing valley slopes. Part of one of the areas of land is mature woodland and there are some rare wildflowers of interest to the avid gardener or naturist with Butterfly Orchids by the strath. A land plan with the field sections is available. This land offers ideal grazing for an equestrian purchaser with plenty of space for paddocks. It would be possible to take hay from some of the land and be reasonably self-sufficient. There are excellent riding opportunities down by the strath and through the plantation for keen horse riders. There are two hardstands; one being appropriately sized for an agricultural building c. 30x60 South West of the house. Crofting grants are available to support the purchase of agricultual buildings. There is a new plantation on the land and a maintenance grant payable which will be transferred to the new owners for this. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to make enquiries in this regard.
The property does have planning in place for the conversion of the exisitng attic, which has been built with attic trusses, into living space and an additional bedroom. Should the prospective purchaser require it, there could be scope to change the proposed living space into another bedroom with an amended planning application. The roof space has velux windows and there is sufficient space within the hallway to acommodate a staircase should the onward purchaser wish to utilise the planning permission. Documents pertaining to planning can be made available to seriously interested parties.
Caberfeidh has much to offer its new owners, be that for a purchaser already involved in agriculture or someone who is looking for a complete change of lifestyle in a friendly and rural community.
