Drimnatorran Farm

An exclusive and incredibly rare opportunity to purchase a massive 47-acre working farm in Anaheilt by the village of Strontian, complete with a C-listed, fully-upgraded farmhouse (with a separate holiday annexe and a total of five bedrooms), a newly built two-bedroom luxury cottage, multiple outbuildings, and the remnants of a B-listed steading. Brimming with unlimited potential and occupying a stunning location by Loch Sunart and the ancient oaks of Ariundle National Nature Reserve, Drimnatorran Farm offers buyers a wealth of unique opportunities whether for commercial business or for those seeking a luxurious sought-after rural lifestyle. Furthermore, with such an abundance of land on offer, it allows a range of enterprises to be developed using the multi-faceted pastures for special farming, for example that of deer, for residential purposes, or even for a potentially lucrative wigwam/pod accommodation business catering to the Highlands holiday market – the possibilities are truly endless.

47 Acres of Working Farmland
Enjoying spectacular panoramic views in every direction, the 47 acres of Drimnatorran Farm are set amongst gentle hills and rolling pastureland, gazing out to nearby mountains for an incredibly scenic and peaceful setting. The fertile farmland, currently utilised in part for grazing livestock, has been developed into fields and meadows, extending to the banks of the idyllic Strontian River and incorporating a bubbling stream for added serenity. It is dotted with mature trees and is enriched with Highland charm, unfolding underfoot with the grandeur of this stunning region. Adding to its appeal, there are farm animals available by separate negotiation, including chickens, ducks, geese, and Dexter cattle, providing new buyers with an ongoing supply of high-quality produce. If desired, this area of the farm has excellent potential to be expanded, allowing the new owners to realise a hands-on farming lifestyle.

Multiple outbuildings
The multiple outbuildings, including a cattle shelter and two covered barns, are certainly well suited for the keeping of livestock, yet they also bring further potential for commercial use or even residential accommodation (subject to the relevant permissions). Two of the outbuildings currently have full planning consent, allowing for change of use and development, with one already fitted with a bathroom and a relaxing sauna. In addition, the ruins of the B-listed steading, a rare example of a Lochaber type bank barn constructed in 1828 from harl pointed rubble, offer a fantastic opportunity for creative use (again, subject to consent). Such outbuildings and steadings with planning permission can be transformed into truly unique and desirable accommodation, where grand designs blend contemporary allure with the traditional rural features to astonishing effect.

Farmhouse & Holiday Annexe
Boasting a total of five generous double bedrooms, two dining kitchens, and multiple reception rooms and bathroom suites, the spectacular farmhouse epitomises the grand rural lifestyle with its vast footprint covering 4,912 square feet over two levels. The C-listed building, built in 1834, has seen extensive renovations from 2011 to create the ultimate country home and holiday annexe, combining sympathetic contemporary interior design with rural charm. Furthermore, it maximises space and light with an abundance of glazing and dual-aspect accommodation, designed to enrich the property with far-reaching Highland views at every turn.

Accessed by a gated, private road that offers a glimpse of Anaheilt’s impressive scenery, the upgraded farmhouse is brimming with instant kerb appeal, enjoying an L-shaped design and rubble granite façade alongside a generous and thoughtful extension. Inside the main section of the farmhouse, an inviting hall welcomes you with its impeccable décor, setting a very high bar for the accommodation to follow. To the left is the dual-aspect living room, where soft tones and a tasteful accent wall create a tranquil and convivial space for relaxing and socialising. Classic details, like an exquisite ceiling rose and smooth cornice work, emphasise the lofty dimensions, whilst a large bay window floods the space in warm sunlight. With very generous proportions supplemented by built-in storage, this reception area allows for a fantastic array of comfortable furnishings, perfectly arranged around a cosy log-burning stove for those warm winter evenings. A second reception space is provided thanks to a vast family room and dining area, which also boasts similar interior design, a log-burner, and dual-aspect windows. This light and airy room is ideal for entertaining lots of guests, yet also nicely setup for relaxing with the family. In the new Farmhouse-inspired dining kitchen, olive-toned cabinets and dark worktops, backed by fashionable metro splashbacks, create a desirable look in tune with the property’s style. It incorporates a beautiful Nordica wood-burning cooker, an integrated five-burner gas hob, and a Belfast sink, inset into a solid granite worktop. In addition, it has room for a large family dining table for jovial meals together and socialising whilst cooking. The kitchen is further supplemented by a walk-in pantry and by a utility room with a multi-fuel Rayburn cooker. Completing the ground-floor, there is a private home office and a modern three-piece shower room. A sweeping staircase from the hall leads upstairs to two luxury king-size bedrooms, one with an open period fireplace (still in working order) and the other (the master bedroom) with a warming fuel stove, a walk-in dressing room, and a new three-piece en-suite shower room, enveloped in sumptuous, earthy-toned tiling. Finishing the outstanding accommodation on offer, a three-piece family bathroom is presented in a similar style to the en-suite, with a spacious footprint and a freestanding double-ended bathtub.

The stylish property also incorporates a self-contained annexe for holiday letting, which features its own private front door and a lockable internal door to join or separate it from the farmhouse proper – an excellent feature that is also perfect for special occasions and get-togethers with family and friends. Fully-equipped and easy to maintain, it provides an excellent source of income throughout the year. This section of the home opens into a welcoming hall (with under-stair storage) where a staircase with timber balustrade leads up to the living room on the first floor. This sprawling, dual-aspect reception area is framed by a cosy log-burning stove and fronted by a Juliette balcony, allowing you to truly appreciate the surrounding natural beauty whilst relaxing or socialising. The dining kitchen is opposite, enjoying a high-spec design centred on smooth lines and a streamlined finish, fitted with base cabinets and generous worktop space. On-trend metro splashbacks add an attractive splash of colour, with seamlessly integrated appliances bolstering the appeal. The L-shaped layout also affords ample room for a large table for sophisticated dinner parties and casual meals. The annex sports three of the farmhouse’s five bedrooms, with two on the ground floor and one on the first floor, all of which are generous doubles styled with the same keen eye for detail and high-quality presentation found throughout. An impressive ground-floor bathroom and first-floor shower room, both with contemporary three-piece suites, complete the annexe.

Outside, the property enjoys a sprawling wraparound garden, landscaped with a sweeping manicured lawn and loose stone bays for alfresco dining in the sun. Plus, there are designated vegetable plots and planters, a polytunnel for growing fruit and vegetables, and a sheltered deck in front of the annexe for enjoying morning coffee. A generous driveway provides comprehensive parking for multiple vehicles.

The property has its own water supply and recently-fitted double glazing throughout, with LPG gas central heating and a multi-fuel Rayburn heating system for optimal comfort.
