Property Description


Rowandell forms an imposing and substantial detached villa, located in the heart of Spean Bridge village, with views towards the surrounding countryside and mountains. Built by Campbell Homes in 1972, the property has been extended over the years and offers a remarkably large home with an attached double garage, a self-contained studio and landscaped garden grounds. In very good order both internally and externally, the property boasts large, bright rooms and benefits from double glazing and oil fired central heating. The deceptively spacious and flexible accommodation on offer would provide the successful purchasers with a wonderful family home, idyllic holiday retreat or a business opportunity as a self-catering prospect in a very buoyant market. Most attractive features of the property include the sizeable formal lounge with marble surround gas fire and dual aspect windows, the generous breakfasting kitchen with granite work surfaces, integral appliances and family room off and the extensive master suite which comprises a considerable bedroom, walk-in wardrobe, dressing room and spacious en-suite bathroom with sunken Jacuzzi bath to name but a few.

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.
