“Sitting proudly on a generous north/south facing plot, this handsome ‘double cottage’ style property will surely strike up appeal with a broad range of buyers due the property’s unique heritage, potential, and its hugely generous detached garage and workshop.

“The ground floor accommodation consists of an entrance vestibule or porch, spacious hallway, generous living room with feature fireplace and bay window, a newly installed shower wet room, dining room and kitchen.

“Upstairs, the layout extends to a bathroom, situated on the half landing, and three bedrooms – two king size and one child’s bedroom.”

Stepping outside, the spokesperson added: “To the front, Strathairly offers a well maintained front garden and driveway, leading up to a gated yard which has parking space for two or three cars.


“Situated next to the hugely impressive garage – with workshop, inspection pit and cellar – there is a neat and tidy south facing garden which is laid to lawn and is very private.

"Early viewing is highly recommended and strictly by appointment only.”
