Mains of FaillieHouse-hunters seeking a tranquil lifestyle with extensive business potential may find their ideal home in Mains of Faillie – a contemporary family property with expansive acres of land.

Mains of Faillie is a spacious four/five bedroom detached property situated in a quiet, elevated position in Daviot, commanding spectacular views of Strathnairn and within easy commuting distance of Inverness.

To add to the whole attractive package, the property is registered as a small holding and sits in approximately 7.5 acres of land, including a paddock area and woodland. Planning Consent is currently in place for four holiday chalets, offering huge potential for any buyer keen to run a business of their own.

What’s more, Mains of Faillie provides additional opportunities for owners to reap the benefits of additional income as it boasts an attached, self-contained, one bedroom cottage which would be ideal to rent either as a holiday or long term let or could equally be used as a granny flat.

The property is currently on the market with Inverness-based Chartered Surveyors, Land and Estate Agents Bell Ingram for offers in the region of £450,000.

Joanne Stennett, of Bell Ingram in Inverness, said: “This property would be ideal for a homebuyer seeking a rural and spacious family home which, if so desired, also offers a not-to-be-missed opportunity for business savvy buyers to benefit from various streams of extra income.

“Mains of Faillie also offers the best of both worlds in terms of accessibility – boasting a peaceful setting which guarantees privacy, while its close proximity to the city of Inverness provides the perfect mix of both urban and rural facilities.”
The property is laid out over two floors and comprises a kitchen/diner, open plan living and dining room, sunroom, two bedrooms, a bathroom and two utility rooms on the ground floor. The first floor features the master bedroom and bedrooms two and three. Bedroom four offers fantastic potential for a young family as there are two interconnected rooms, making it ideal to have a baby close or also for older children to have their own lounge area. A bathroom and office are also located on this floor.

The self-contained cottage has a lounge, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, as well as its own garden ground which is gated and fenced.

The property also benefits from double glazing and has recently been insulated to the majority of exterior walls and reharled.

Viewings are strictly by appointment only and can be arranged through Bell Ingram’s Inverness office on 01463 717 799.

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.
