Ballintomb Cottage is a unique 4 bedroom corrugated iron &timber property, probably constructed from the catalogue of William Cooper Limited in the late Victorian/Edwardian times. The property stands within a small rural hamlet with views of the Cromdale hills and within established pine trees. The property has a single storey sun room porch which is ideally suited to take advantage of the good views, an extension to the rear has added a good sized kitchen with bathroom and cloakroom and these rooms also have double glazed windows and a double glazed paneled entrance door. The two storey main part of the property has decorative external timber gables and contains most of the floor area which consists of an open plan 'L' lounge/dining room, with wood burning stove and four bedrooms. The majority of the interior of the property is clad with a pitch pine lining and there is a lovely pitch pine staircase which all adds to the Victorian shooting lodge ambiance.
Corrugated iron buildings were common across the Highlands in historic times but very few remain, so this is an ideal opportunity to own a historical property.
