Inverskilavulin House forms a most impressive superior detached dwelling house. Offering generously proportioned, bright rooms, with copious large windows accentuating the views, the property is in excellent condition throughout and would be ideal as either a spacious family home or guest house. The inclusion of two luxurious three-bedroom semi-detached villas and similarly themed two-bedroom wooden lodges along with almost 10 acres of land gives the estate a great deal of flexibility regarding ultimate use, with additional possibilities as a company retreat or conference centre.
The properties have all been constructed with a vision for taste combined with comfort by the current owners, over the last decade.
The front door leads into a magnificent entrance and reception hall giving access to the ground floor rooms which include a sumptuous open plan living space built around the central fireplace, comprising of large sitting, dining and splendidly equipped kitchen areas, making it the hub of this remarkable home. The games room benefits from advantageous amounts of natural light provided by the panoramic double aspect windows with an adjacent study and gun room. A utility area provides outdoor access to the rear and a door to the integral double garage.
The oak stairway leads to the mezzanine floor with its five bedrooms all designed with views to Ben Nevis. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom in onyx stone complete with separate shower cabinet, a Jacuzzi tub and a large walk-in dressing area. Two further bedrooms also have en-suite shower rooms with the family bathroom completing the upper floor accommodation.
The basement floor is made up of a number of attractive features which come together to provide the perfect way to recover after a hard day on the hills with a sauna, steam room, shower and a stunning wine cellar. There is also a large store room currently used to keep a variety of outdoor equipment on this level.
There is a strong potential to also let the 3 bedrooms as a Chambre d’hote (B&B), which could easily generate a significant income.
Located a short distance from the main house are the two semi-detached villas. Finished to a very high standard, the ground floor accommodation consists of hallway, lounge/diner, beautifully fitted kitchen and shower room, with three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. Each house is currently let on a short assured tenancy but would also be ideal for self-catering holiday lets, with each property generating a substantial income.
Two substantial wooden holiday lodges have been built, also to a high specification, on elevated sites to the north-west of the main house. Each lodge comprises an open-plan sitting/dining and kitchen area, two bedrooms and a family bathroom. These form the basis of a successful tourism-based business which has generated substantial income over the past few years.
All of the properties benefit from oil-fired central heating and solar panels, which not only reduce the electricity costs but also generates an annual income to the estate. In addition, they are set in gardens and grounds, which extend to around nine and a half acres, including a burn and a good-sized pond.
In addition, a further development opportunity has been provided with the granting of planning permission to construct a one bedroom lodge on the edge of the estate.
