Description

An elegant family home of considerable character with stunning arts and crafts influences and spectacular southerly views across the Beauly Firth.

Kessock House is accessed by a drive with electric gates which leads to a gravel sweep at the east of the house. The front door is approached via a covered terrace beneath the wrought iron and timber veranda that sweeps round the house at first floor level.

The original Victorian house was built in 1883 and, at the start of the 20th Century, a substantial extension was added including the large, first floor veranda with exceptional views and turrets. The arts and crafts features continue inside the house making Kessock a warm and welcoming home. The renovations substantially enlarged Kessock and a relatively modest home became a landmark house. A major refurbishment some 20 years ago sympathetically updated the accommodation and introduced modern facilities and comforts as well as redesigning the many Victorian back areas to form a kitchen befitting a house of this quality. The most recent addition of a large, stunning sun room completes a home of the highest calibre.

Accommodation comprises:
Ground Floor: Reception Hall, Drawing Room, Dining Room, Library, Sun Room, Kitchen, Utility Room, Cloakroom and Cellar.

First Floor: Master Bedroom with en-suite Bathroom, four further Bedrooms, and Family Bathroom.

Second Floor: Suite with Bedroom 6, Sitting/Games Room and Shower Room.

The gardens are a real feature of Kessock House and provide an appropriate setting for the house. To the south of the drive a lawn, partially flanked by stone walls and mature trees, is currently used as a grass tennis court. To the south, terraced lawns have stone steps leading to a path down to the village.

To the rear of the house is a traditional range of stone and slate lean-to buildings which have a paved terrace in front of them.
