Interesting property that looks like a period build at first glance. But this is actually fairly recent, a Charles Rennie Mackintosh-inspired two-bedroom property in Farr, Inverness-shire.
The house is called South House, which is set in woodland on the outskirts of the village of Farr, near Inverness City centre. It was built in 1992 to a Charles Rennie Mackintosh design, the copyright of which is owned by the Hunterian Art Gallery in Glasgow. So a classic design, but with the convenience of modern construction.
It is designed as a family home, but it isn’t as big as you might at first think. With that in mind, it could also work as a holiday place, although it’s perhaps priced a little high for a second home for most of us.
The accommodation within is laid out over two floors. Enter and you’ll find an entrance vestibule, which opens to the dining hall with feature staircase leading up to the first floor accommodation. That opens to the kitchen and also the lounge, the former being a modern double aspect room, the latter a triple aspect room with windows to two sides and French door opening to a timber decked area. There’s also a multi-fuel stove set in a Mackintosh designed wooden surround in this room.
The staircase leads up to the upper landing area which has a feature curved stained glass Rennie MacKintosh design window, built in cupboard with shelving space and doors to the two double bedrooms and the bathroom. Both bedrooms are double rooms with built in wardrobes. Access to the loft space is via one of the bedrooms and the loft space has been insulated and has power and light.
Outside space is 0.013 acres, along with an area of woodland and the opportunity to acquire adjacent woodland. A shared access leads up to the property and to the single detached garage. Behind the garage there is a shed for fire wood and the bins with power and light.
If you want it, the price is offers over £215,000.
Big thanks to Richard McLintock for finding this place
