Ardgowan Lodge Cottage is a “C” listed terraced property, which forms part of a former Georgian coach house and stables, dating back to circa 1747. It is set within a quadrangle courtyard amidst the beautiful grounds of Belladrum Estate and Clunes House, approximately 10 miles from Inverness city centre.
The property is approached by a shared single track, leading to a parking area within the courtyard. On entering the property on the ground floor you will find the dining kitchen, which comes with a range of wall and base storage units and integrated appliances, a bedroom with storage space and a family bathroom. A carpeted staircase leads upstairs to a cozy living room with wood burning stove and an en-suite bedroom. There is additional storage in the two attic rooms above.
The property enjoys a peaceful setting and is within close proximity to Kiltarlity, which has its own primary school; secondary schooling is in Inverness. Beauly lies around 4 miles away, an area steeped in history, with the ruined Valliscaulian priory founded in 1230, and linked with a number of Scottish clans and allegedly visited by Mary Queen of Scots in 1564. Beauly has a range of shops, hotels and coffee shops; it has excellent transport links to Inverness where a wider range of shopping is available. The local countryside offers many opportunities for recreational activities including cycling and hillwalking. Shooting, stalking and fishing are all readily available on local estates.
The city of Inverness is the main business and commercial centre for the Highlands and provides an extensive range of high street shopping, leisure and entertainment facilities in addition to main line rail links to the south. The property makes the ideal rural retreat for the commuting client located around 12 miles from Inverness and around 20 miles from Inverness Airport. The Airport provides regular domestic and European flights.
There is a substantial area of garden ground to the front of the property, which is mainly laid to lawn and bounded by trees, plants and shrubs.
