Bridge House is an outstanding contemporary property looking out over the Black Isle, just over two miles from Munlochy and under ten miles from Inverness in the Highlands.

The house was completed in 1998 and fuses modern building knowledge, including a heat exchange system and a central vacuum system on each floor, with the charm of features built in the traditional style including flagstone floors and a superb inglenook fireplace.

Accommodation on the ground floor has a focal point in the magnificent dining kitchen/family room which has incredible south-facing views – the family room area has double doors out to the south-facing terrace, as does the drawing room. Double doors connect the drawing room and the panelled dining room. The ground floor also has an en-suite double bedroom.

A spiral staircase leads upstairs, where the master bedroom has a large Juliet balcony, the views from which are far-ranging. A guest suite and two further double bedrooms on the first floor are complemented by the family bathroom.

The second floor is an ideal space for children with a large playroom, with a separate sitting area, together with two double bedrooms.

Outside the garage block is situated to the east of the house and has a loosebox attached to its south end. The garden is principally to the south; the paved terrace features a herb garden, and six raised beds form a vegetable garden. Fruit trees have also been planted. To the west is a further patio which has views of the wooded glen beyond.

The property also has a paddock which has some good mature oaks and a field shelter. At the centre is a chambered cairn which is a scheduled Ancient Monument. To the west is a wooded glen with a burn, which is carpeted with bluebells in the spring – the grounds come to six acres.

Bridge House has a secluded setting, although Inverness is nine miles distant and Munlochy village just over two miles; Inverness Airport is only 17 miles. The local area is renowned both for its natural beauty and sporting opportunities, from shooting to skiing and sailing.

The guide price is £875,000. For further information please contact Savills on 0131 247 3717 or visit www.savills.co.uk.
