McEwan Fraser Legal are delighted to offer a truly unique and unrivalled opportunity to purchase this bespoke property nestled above the legendary Loch Ness in the rolling hills of the Great Glen. Tychat House sits on a sprawling 38.5 acre estate and boasts panoramic views of Urquhart Bay and its Pictish ruins with the gracious Monalaidth Mountains providing a stunning backdrop. This secluded, charming and unique Highland getaway is an idyllic retreat, the view alone will keep you captivated for hours.
Renovated in 2008, the home’s interior is delightfully eclectic and a tribute to the late Dr Robert Rines, who became world-famous for his scientific investigations into the existence of the Loch Ness monster. With views of the Loch from each room, Tychat House is the perfect place to “Nessie-watch.”
The ground floor features large picture windows and its open layout surrounds a wood-burning fireplace. Round every corner is another nook or snug with seating. During fine weather, the outdoor patio is perfect for enjoying the fresh Highland air, or outdoor dining although the large conservatory allows for less favourable weather conditions.
The first floor presents the choice of two spectacular and spacious double bedrooms with stellar views and private balconies, ideal for enjoying a morning cup of coffee or a quiet drink as the sun goes down. The third bedroom is also endowed with the same breathtaking vista.
In addition to the main house, also included in the sale and set a distance apart, is an additional three bedroom cottage which was also renovated in 2008 and consists of, on the lower floor, hallway, lounge with log burner, fitted kitchen with integrated electric cooker, family bathroom with separate shower cabinet and two bedrooms with an additional master bedroom and dressing room on the upper floor. This property could provide additional letting income.
Both properties are heated by a single biomass boiler with the boiler room adjacent to the double garage. A former stable provides additional storage but could be used for further development if required, subject to obtaining relevant planning permissions.
The immediate garden area is laid mainly to lawn with a large tarred driveway enabling the parking a large number of vehicles. You can of course enjoy the larger spaces of the estate if the want takes you.
This wonderfully rare property has the potential for many commercial uses or even simply, as a grand home!
Please be advised that this property is subject to an agricultural tenant who is willing to rescind his tenancy for payment.
