Property Description


The sale of Birchwood offers an opportunity to purchase a substantial and imposing period property. Dating back to around 1902, the property still retains some of its original features such as a charming pitch pine staircase, moulded cornicing and picture rails. Positioned in the heart of Spean Bridge village with stunning views over its grounds to Aonach Mor and the Grey Corrie Mountains, the property currently makes a superb family home.

Spean Bridge is a very desirable location offering a wide range of amenities for a village, including a local Spar shop, hotels, cafes, bistro, restaurant and golf course. The village connects to the rest of The Highlands through its own train station, bus links and main “A” road. Additional amenities are available in Fort William, 10 miles away. The local area provides the opportunity to access a wealth of outdoor  activities including the Great Glen and Nevis Range Ski Area, downhill and cross country mountain bike riding, hill walking, sailing, or exploring the footpaths along the Caledonian Canal only a few minutes drive from the property. Fort Augustus and the famous Loch Ness are about a 30  minute drive north.
