Boasting many premium features, including underfloor heating to the ground floor, excellent storage, engineered oak flooring, and internal oak doors throughout, the current owners have lavished time and attention on the property over the years, to create a remarkable, modern family home. The lounge, with extensive picture windows, French doors, a multi-fuel stove, with impressive granite surround from floor to double-height ceiling, and mezzanine reading area over, is a most extraordinary room, whilst the adjoining dining kitchen, with quality fitted units and appliances, granite topped island unit and French doors to the patio area, complements the main living area of the home.

The village offers a range of amenities such as a newly refurbished Spar shop, pharmacy, hotels, aware winning bistro, restaurant, café, 9-hole golf course, a well respected primary school and a railway station with direct link to London. Both Leanachan Forest, with its numerous trails, and the skiing and mountain biking resort of Nevis Range, are in close proximity, while the nearby rivers, lochs and mountains provide access to an abundance of outdoor activities.
