A MANSION with spectacular views has gone on the market for £325,000 – and comes complete with a very special feature.
The five-bed coastal pad, which dates back to 1860, comes with a castle-style courtyard, commercial kitchen and best of all, it’s very own waterfall.
The unique house is set over two floors, with four bathrooms and features a quirky decor style throughout.
It has pendant lampshades, exposed brick walls and windows to floor level in the main reception room.
Other rooms have plenty of colour, with one boasting blue walls, a blue fireplace and blue accent tiles on the floor.
Located in the Scottish highlands, the property sits above the famous Whaligoe Steps and rugged coastline rocks.
But its real appeal is the stunning views of the waterfall.
The home was previously a restaurant known as the Whaligoe Steps Café and Restaurant, with the ground floor as a pit stop for those exploring the steps and coast.
Before that, the B listed property was a Herring Station with a cooperage and stables.
The main garden is a courtyard gated by brick walls but could do with some TLC.
There are several other garden spaces around the property, as well as plenty of open land surrounding it for those who like their greenery.
The character building is 2,551 sq ft in total, which equals £127 per sq ft.
A spokesperson for the listing said: “Bought by the present owners for the position and views, it has been mostly renovated to an extremely high standard.
“Dating back to 1860, the B listed property was originally a Herring Station with a cooperage and stables.
“Part of the ground floor was, until recently, a restaurant with a commercial kitchen, reception room and customer toilets.
“A new owner could continue with a likewise venture or run Airbnb in the upper wings.”
Viewing is absolutely essential to appreciate not only the uniqueness of this home but also the location, the breathtaking views and also the potential that it has.
The ground floor includes a huge lounge and diner with windows to floor level, kitchen, two large reception rooms, utility room with two separate W.C.’s and a bedroom.
The upper main building has two double bedrooms and a shower room while the upper west wing also has two double bedrooms, bathroom and an open landing area.
All of the windows are double glazed and the heating system is oil fired though a large Ecco Stove to the lounge and diner could heat most of the building.
There is also off road parking for several cars outside.
The spokesperson added: “Viewing is absolutely essential to appreciate not only the uniqueness of this home but also the location, the breathtaking views and also the potential that it has.”
The rural property’s nearest train station is seven miles away, or there is Gills Bay Ferry Terminal 20 miles away.
