No3, Strone is a unique opportunity to buy a cottage with planning permission to extend into a fine country house, with some of the most stunning views anywhere in Britain. Plans have been drawn up for the extension of the existing cottage which will transform the house into a U-shaped bespoke detached villa of over 2.500sq ft.

The architects have deliberately used lots of glass to make the most of the views throughout the interior of the property and accommodation has been designed to provide flexibility and a superb family living space over two levels.

The site sits directly above the world famous Urquhart Castle with uninterrupted views over the Great Glen at Loch Ness and beyond – Inverness is campaigning to have the area designated a World Heritage Site for 2012.

The guide price is £450,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01463 719 171 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
