With only a handful of neighbours, Murphy’s Croft sits within an 11.87 acre site, with woodland providing shelter to the north and west. This enviable and secluded location allows one to fully appreciate the spectacular Highland scenery and enjoy the full spectrum of colours on display with the passing of the seasons.
Murphy’s Croft is a two-storey property of modern construction, built in around 2008 and extending to approximately 217m2. In its current configuration the house provides a very attractive open plan living/kitchen area with impressive double height windows boasting fine views to the south east, a wood burning stove and plenty of space for entertaining. There is a boot room/utility, sunroom, two bedrooms and family bathroom on the ground floor, while the first floor consists of a large master bedroom with balcony and en-suite including corner bath and separate shower, in addition to a small room currently utilised as a nursery but which would make a useful office or dressing room.
The property is double glazed throughout and benefits from mains electricity, oil-fired central heating and LPG gas range. Water comes from a private source located within the site while drainage is by way of septic tank.
Externally there is a large wraparound garden laid to lawn with an attractive covered south facing decked area perfect for entertaining. There is also a useful timber framed storage shed which houses the oil tank and fuel for the fire.
The grazings, extend to approximately 11 acres in total and are spread across seven main field enclosures, all of which are ring fenced and benefit from water supplies and suitably located gates to make the management of stock more efficient. The land is classified by The James Hutton Institute as being Grade 4.1 and is currently used for a mixture of livestock and horses.
The property comes with two modern steel portal framed general purpose sheds extending to approximately 14m x 14m each with concrete block walls to approximately 1m and poured concrete floor in the north most shed and an earth floor in the south, all clad with insulated profile sheeting or Yorkshire board. Access to the “workshop” section to the north is via full height sliding doors and contains the fuel storage tanks and a 3 tonne four post ramp, suitable for a range of vehicles – the ramp may be included in the sale but via separate negotiation. The adjoining southern shed is utilised as a lambing shed. In addition to their current uses, either might lend themselves to reconfiguration and be ideal for stabling, as a trades workshop, garaging or studio space.
To the west there is a large hardcore area which provides ample additional storage space, parking or turning for larger vehicles.
Strictly by prior agreement with the selling agents who should be contacted in advance to advise on access arrangements.
