Farochil comprises two modernised traditional properties purchased in the mid-1990s when they were a farmhouse and adjoining steading. Now there are two houses providing six bedrooms and expansive reception space between them.
The farmhouse itself is built of stone under a slate roof with single storey extensions to the front and rear. There is a large open-plan kitchen/dining room and the roof has been recently repaired. With features including open fireplaces and decorative timber mantels, oak floors and timber-panelled doors, the fittings are of high quality. There are two bedrooms, one master and a further double bedroom, as well as a family bathroom upstairs.
The steading was designed by the current owner to provide self-catering accommodation for a visiting family, and is the larger property. Features include overhanging eaves, and a large arched window in the western gable and a former hay loft door connecting the master bedroom on the first floor with the garden.
