HOUSE-HUNTERS looking to purchase a unique property with prime business potential are being given the chance to be top of the class with a stunning school conversion in a hugely desirable location.

Dating from around 1820, Glencorse is a well-presented, four bedroom former schoolhouse which sits in an elevated position on the popular North Coast 500 Route and boasts delightful views over Loch Drumbeg from every room.

The property has been upgraded to the highest of standards and has been operated as a 4* standard, successful holiday let since 2010, receiving many highly positive reviews on TripAdvisor. It offers the buyer the not to be missed opportunity to continue to reap the benefits of this additional income.

To add to the whole attractive package, Glencorse has retained many of its traditional features, including a vaulted kitchen ceiling, an Aga, an open fire, exposed traditional dry-stone walls and luxurious travertine flagstones that run through the hallway and kitchen. A dual aspect lounge/sun-room with large triple picture windows also offer further direct loch views.

Located in the village of Drumbeg, just 17 miles from the village of Lochinver on the West Coast of Scotland, the property is currently on the market with Inverness-based Chartered Surveyors, Land and Estate Agents Bell Ingram for offers over £375,000.

Joanne Stennett, of Bell Ingram’s Inverness office, said: “This is a truly must-see property as the stunning coastal location and surrounding views are exceptional and can only be fully appreciated in person.

“The detached home also gives business savvy buyers the chance to embrace a second stream of income if desired, as the area is hugely popular with tourists due to its setting on the North Coast 500 Route.

“Glencorse would be ideal for large and growing families seeking a rural home and perfectly suited to those with an interest in outdoor activities, especially fishing as the surrounding area is home to a whopping 240 lochs and, of course, keen walkers.”

Drumbeg has local amenities including a village store with delicatessen, an hotel, pub and restaurant with further facilities in Lochinver, the main village of Assynt. Lochinver provides a range of services including shops, school, medical services, leisure centre and good quality restaurants.

The property is on the Assynt Peninsula which has many magnificent mountains and spectacular white sandy beaches, the most famous being Achmelvich with its sand dunes and turquoise waters.

Viewings are strictly by appointment only and can be arranged through Bell Ingram’s Inverness office on 01463 716 699.

Established 117 years ago, Bell Ingram has 130 professional staff across 11 UK offices including: farm, estate and forestry managers; chartered surveyors, estate agents, architects, planners, and building surveyors; and tourism, GIS mapping, and renewable energy specialists.
