Birchfield imagesMost home owners would put a commanding view and an impressive garden as one of the main features of their dream house – but realise that this tends to mean a property in the countryside.

However, Birchfield, a substantial four bedroom property, provides not just an enviable location but is ideally situated in the idyllic Highland town of Fortrose – and so brings all the benefits of town and country living.

Views from the property look out over Fortrose, the Black Isle and the Moray Firth while the one acre of beautifully landscaped gardens with its sweeping driveway and meandering paths provides a stunning sense of grandeur.

The striking garden is also now a popular feature in the Fortrose community, being opened up to the public and visitors each summer.

Joanne Stennett of estate agents, Bell Ingram, who are marketing the property for offers in the region of £390,000, believes the house and garden would create an impressive family home.

Joanne said: “Birchfield is a truly stunning property. Not only is it in an enviable and sought-after location – which means you can look out over the whole of Fortrose and the Moray Firth – but it has the stunning garden to match.

“Typically, such a location and scale of property would be found in the country but Birchfield is located in the pretty Highland town of Fortrose, meaning it benefits from easy access to local schools, shops and facilities.

“The garden is immaculately kept, so for people who like gardening it is really it is just a case of maintaining it – and admiring it, as many people do each summer when it is opened to visitors – rather than starting from square one.

“Fortrose’s location is also ideal for a family or for outdoor enthusiasts as there is such a diverse range of sporting and leisure activities available.”

Birchfield currently is configured with three large bedrooms, all of which have en-suite bathrooms. The property also has a study on the ground floor however, this room has potential as a fourth bedroom due to its size and the fact that it has suitable plumbing in place to install an additional en-suite bathroom. kitchen at Birchfield

The large open plan kitchen has ample space for a dining table and features a breakfast counter and island with a hob for extra cooking space. The granite work tops and kitchen design make for a contemporary and welcoming atmosphere yet the AGA and the oak cupboards give a more traditional farmhouse feel.

The garden has two ponds, numerous meandering paths and summer house and cedar wood greenhouse.

The Black Isle boasts incredible views and an abundance of walks, both coastal and inland. This part of Scotland is also home to some of Scotland’s best and iconic whiskies, such as Glen Ord Distillery.

Fortrose is situated 14 miles away from Inverness, providing links throughout the UK and wider world.
