Property Description


Peacefully situated in an idyllic, rural location and commanding breath-taking, unspoiled views across the open countryside towards Loch Shiel and Beinn Resipole, with the Sgurr an Utha and Fraoch-bheinn mountains of Glenfinnan in the distance, Deeke forms a most impressive, modern, detached villa, set in around 3.5 acres of drained, garden grounds. Included in this unique sale is a charming, detached, stone-built cottage, plus a substantial, detached, agricultural garage/workshop, offering the successful purchaser a fantastic lifestyle opportunity. Providing bright, flexible accommodation, the main property benefits from superior fittings including a mixture of double and triple glazing, LPG fired central heating, underfloor heating to the ground level, an impressive multi-fuel stove in the lounge, quality wooden kitchen with granite work surfaces, modern bathroom suites and premium oak and slate tiled flooring, to name but a few.
