Historic House Offers Shores of Country Charm

A new-to-the-market fine country house with detached cottage is offering the chance for keen buyers to enjoy life in a truly tranquil and unspoiled location of the shores of Locheye.

Locheye House is a charming, five-bedroom period property that boasts expansive land extending to around 8.75 acres and exceptional views out over Locheye from both the ground and first floors.

The home was extended to its current layout in the late 1900s and has since been well looked after, maintaining a modern feel while still retaining its original country features, including a wood burning stove, cosy fireplaces, decorative cornice work and an Aga.

What’s more, with its many reception rooms, an annex with sitting/dining/kitchen and the tastefully refurbished two bedroom Locheye Cottage set in its grounds, the property offers substantial opportunity for the buyer to reap the benefits of additional income.

Locheye House, which also comes complete with an all weather tennis court, pony paddock, boathouse, boat shed, jetty and a range of outbuildings, garages and workshops, is on the market with Perth-based Chartered Surveyors, Land and Estate Agents Bell Ingram for offers over £950,000.

Carl Warden, of Bell Ingram’s Perth Office, said: “Locheye House is an extremely beautiful property which has stunning loch views from both floors. It offers a unique opportunity to own the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

“Locheye is a fresh water loch and is the ideal place to take a refreshing dip or, for the keen fisher, it’s well known as one of the best wild brown trout fisheries in the county.

“The cottage and annex offer fantastic potential to the buyer and can be used as a holiday let. However, they could just as easily be used to host friends and family who would no doubt be delighted to visit such a stunning location.”

Locheye House is located in the old county of Easter Ross, between the Dornoch and Cromarty Firths, where the combination of dramatic coastline, sandy beaches and heather clad hills and glens make this an extremely beautiful part of the world, which is also very accessible to Inverness and its major transport links.

The nearest town is Tain, one of Scotland’s oldest historic towns, which is well supported with services, local schools, a doctors surgery and a new supermarket. The village of Fearn is just one mile away and has a train station which connects the east coast towns between Thurso and Inverness.

Viewings are strictly by appointment only and can be arranged through Bell Ingram’s Perth office on 01738 621 121.
