Few houses have such a magnificent situation as Leiter Fearn, on the Aberchalder Estate, with its commanding position above the Caledonian Canal and Loch Oich.
Between Inverness and Fort William in Scotland's incomparable Great Glen, the house is set in its large, enclosed garden, with views of the boats passing through the canal lock below you and sailing off down the loch.
This substantial, detached Victorian farmhouse has been completely refurbished and offers spacious accommodation, with an excellent balance between restrained elegance and comfort, where families as well as parties of adults can feel perfectly at ease.
The cosy sitting room has a wood-burning stove to keep it warm and the large windows that not only let in plenty of light but also afford wonderful views down to the canal.
The spacious farmhouse kitchen also has a dining area that is easily large enough to cope with a full house in comfort or for more formal dining the elegant dining room provides just the right atmosphere. Also on this level are a WC and a handy utility room.
Upstairs there are four excellent bedrooms, three double rooms and a twin room, each with their own little 'suite' with an adjoining bath or shower room. The bedrooms are all comfortably furnished with some very good antique pieces which are just right for such a house and with TVs in every bedroom, getting the children off to bed shouldn’t be too much of a problem! Having the bedrooms arranged in separate ‘wings’ of the house, each with its own facilities, means that each group has its own space.
Outside there is plenty of room for four cars in the gravelled parking area and there are also extensive grassed garden areas.
