Stunningly renovated old schoolhouse within an acre of garden near Inverness, brimming with character and thoughtful touches.
This exquisite, unusual property is a converted schoolhouse, which has been lovingly and beautifully renovated. It sits in the Highland village of Muir of Ord, close to the waters of the Beauly Firth and Moray. With two sumptuous double bedrooms, it’s the ideal couples’ retreat in the heart of the Highlands.
The property is a beautiful stone building: a single storey schoolhouse with a miniature tower at one end. The original features of this unusual structure have been thoughtfully preserved and the interiors reflect its history, with antiques and old Scottish details blending with more modern design.
The heart of the home is a large, open-plan space which combines a sitting area, dining table and kitchen, all leading down to the focal point – a stone fireplace with a wood burner – perfect for gathering around and enjoying cosy evenings. With oak floors and beautiful high ceilings, this room really has an impressive feel, and unique pieces of furniture and artwork make it even more special. Head through to the first bedroom, also on the ground level. It’s a king-size room with an en-suite; a luxurious room with its own feature fireplace and rich decor.
Up on the first floor, you’ll find the second double bedroom which hosts a beautiful antique bed and art deco fireplace, making it an inspiring, chic retreat for a couple.
Outside the property, the garden runs down to a wee burn, a little stream. Grass wraps around the house which is secluded by trees, so you’ll enjoy your very own slice of Highland landscape.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
