Property Description

Situated on a prime elevated site, with stunning, panoramic mountain views, the sale of Burnlea offers a rare opportunity to purchase a superb, detached bungalow set in generous grounds near the famous Caledonian Canal. Created to take full advantage of its position with expansive windows to the breath-taking uninterrupted views, Burnlea is located within the small hamlet of Muirshearlich on the outskirts of Banavie and evokes a real feeling of seclusion whilst being located only 6 miles away form the principal town of Fort William. In very good order throughout and beautifully presented, the property benefits from double glazing, gas fired central heating and boasts many features including a spacious lounge with impressive gas fire and engineered oak flooring, a striking conservatory with access to the garden and triple aspect windows, a semi open-plan dining room and kitchen with granite work surfaces and modern bathroom suites to name but a few. Providing deceptively spacious and flexible accommodation on one level, Burnlea would be ideally suited to a number of uses including a family home, retirement home, idyllic holiday retreat or as a superb self-catering opportunity.

The canal itself, with its towpath running from Fort William to Gairlochy near Spean Bridge, is set in an area providing an ideal base to take advantage of the numerous leisure and pleasure activities the region, known as “The Outdoor Capital of the UK”, has to offer. Meanwhile the nearby villages of Corpach and Caol offer shops, hotels, bars, primary schools and high school with further amenities available in Fort William itself.


A gravelled private driveway, providing ample parking, leads to the property and garage. The remaining fully enclosed, landscaped grounds are laid in the main to lawn featuring  gravelled and paved areas, offset with mature trees including fruit varieties, hedging, shrubs, bushes, seasonal planting and raised beds. A natural stream runs through the lower part of the garden, whilst the current owners have created a herb and vegetable patch to the rear. A greenhouse (which is subject to separate negotiation), metal shed and wheelchair ramp also feature.
