Georgian country house near Inverness

Old Urray is a category B-listed Georgian house dating back to 1814. Ongoing renovations and upgrades have left the house in excellent condition, and the interiors are typical of the period with an entrance vestibule leading to a generous, welcoming hallway with two reception rooms on each side. The sitting room and formal dining room are packed with features, including a wood-burning stove from the 1920s in the latter.

The rear hall provides access to the cosy library and the dining kitchen; the kitchen flows into the rear of the house and has very good views of the garden.

The staircase leads upstairs to the four double bedrooms and the master suite, all of which feature cornicing, sash and case windows, working shutters and fireplaces. The upper floor has two attic rooms which can be used as bedrooms, for storage, or as sewing or games rooms.
