Property Details

The Property

A wonderful and rare opportunity to purchase an opulent mansion set in its own well maintained and established grounds. Situated in the rural community of Kinbrace, this traditional stone built residence was built around 1924. This four bedroom detached property is set on an elevated position and enjoys magnificent views overlooking bannock burn and uninterrupted surrounding countryside. Retaining many original features and in need of some redecoration, the spacious accommodation comprises, lounge, kitchen/diner, dining room, four bedrooms, bathroom and wc/utility room. The property benefits from oil fired central heating and upvc double glazing throughout. The large surrounding garden is mainly laid to grass with a driveway which permits parking for several vehicles. There is a detached garage, wooden storage shed and lean to shed. This property would make a lovely family home once fully restored.

The Area

The property is situated in a small rural community of Kinbrace in East Sutherland. Kinbrace is a small community in Strath Beg, which has its own local garage. The nearest amenities and primary school is located in Helmsdale. The railway station is nearby with services North to Wick/Thurso and South to Inverness. Just north of Kinbrace you enter the famous Flow Country, an area of peatland known for its wildlife. To the south lies the hills of Kildonan and the road to the coast at Helmsdale where you can pan for gold. Meanwhile the road West takes you into the more mountainous part of Sutherland as you head towards Strathnaver. The area is ideal for outdoor pursuits such as hillwalking and deer stalking.
