Description

Foyers Bay Country House is a beautiful property which retains original features. Built in 1890 this detached Victorian Villa has been sympathetically upgraded and extended and is currently trading as a Bed and Breakfast. The property offers numerous possibilities and could continue trading as a B&B but it would also be ideal as a large family home or sporting lodge with country sports abundant in the area.   The property could also be easily separated further to give more private living accommodation and fewer letting bedrooms to offer a good family home.

The property sits in mature gardens extending to approximately 1 acre (0.44 Ha) which is a haven for wildlife and birdlife with deer, pine martens and pheasants being regular visitors. The elevated position gives lovely Loch and countryside views.    A tarmac road alongside the front garden to the side of Foyers Bay House. From here a gravel path leads to the glazed entrance door which opens to a large vestibule which has two WC's. An internal door leads to the main hallway which has a door to the left to the main lounge and access to an inner hall and bedroom. A grand staircase rises to the upper floor.   

The sitting room is a spacious and light room with a large bay and side window taking in the stunning views to Loch Ness. A central feature is provided by a stone fireplace with stone hearth which houses a multi-fuel stove. Bedroom 8 lies off the inner hall which overlooks the side garden. This bedroom benefits from having a bathroom to the side with a three piece suite in white with a shower over the bath. The kitchen has a range of floor and wall units in oak with a roll top worksurface. There are two gas hobs and two electric hobs and also an electric barbeque. A Bosch dishwasher, integral electric oven and Beko fridge are included in the sale. A window overlooks the side garden.   A door leads to a useful utility area which in turn take you to the side garden. An added benefit is a second utility area which has a double sink and ample storage units with a stainless steel worksurface. A rear porch is also accessed from the kitchen and this has a staircase to the upper floor. Returning to the main hall there is a further en-suite bedroom which has an external access door.   The large lounge has a large bay window overlooking the front garden again enjoying the lovely views. An open fire sits upon a tiled fireplace and has an ornate wooden hearth around. This room also has a corner bar.   A glazed door leads to the conservatory which is fully glazed and has patio doors to the garden. There is a small kitchen area within the conservatory which is ideal for entertaining. From the main hall the staircase rises to the upper floor and the landing which accesses the remaining bedrooms.   Bedroom 1 which has an en-suite shower room has dual aspect windows allowing plenty of natural light and a door which leads to a lovely balcony which overlooks the garden and enjoys the Loch views.    Bedroom 2 shares the same outlook and also has access to the balcony area and an en-suite shower room.
Bedroom 3 also shares the same outlook but without access to the balcony area. It has an en-suite shower room. Bedrooms 4 and 5 are also en-suite and overlook the side garden. At this point a door leads to the rear hall and bedroom 6 which is a family room with a separate entrance to another attached bedroom which is idea for young families. This area could also be used as a dressing room. Again, there is an en-suite shower room. This hallway leads back to the rear staircase and the rear entrance porch.
