The Roundhouse and Crofthouse at Uvie Farm

The Scottish Highlands are full of stunning beauty and panoramic vistas, natural beauty on every side. Newtonmore, Inverness-shire, in particular is home to Cairngorms National Park, itself home to unparalleled beauty, wildlife adventures, and many other outdoor recreational opportunities.

Nestled along the western end of Cairngorms National Park sits a unique property for sale in the Scottish Highlands, Uvie Farm.

Currently an active Pedigree Highland Cattle farm, Uvie Farm is ready to take on its next life — or to continue as one of the most idyllic settings for raising hairy highland cows.

Make no mistake: this property is far more than just a conventional farm, thanks to two unique and beautiful accommodation buildings on the property, along with the stunning views.

Accommodations with a View

The two accommodation buildings on the property both provide stunning, sweeping views of surrounding farmland, the River Spey, and the Ben Macdui and other surrounding mountains and crags.

Both buildings are raised above the floodplain and thus enjoy unobstructed views of the vast surrounds. They are situated with a sunlit southerly aspect as well.

Wake up, enjoy the day, and drift off to sleep, all with expansive views of natural beauty, unobstructed by commercial development or overgrowth. Uvie Farm truly offers accommodations with a view.

Access When You Need It

Located just off the East/West trunk road (A86), the structures are set off from the road and separated by a grove of trees. From either homesite, you’ll feel yourself a world away—even though you’re only five miles from shops, pubs and Post Office.

Should you need access to a city of greater size, either Inverness or Perth is available in just an hour’s car trip. You’ll also have rail service to Inverness, Glasgow, and Edinburgh, along with the Caledonian Sleeper to London.

Of course, the highlight of any property is the living quarters, and Uvie Farm delivers two excellent accommodations: the Roundhouse and the Crofthouse.

The Roundhouse: Sustainable, Eco-Friendly Luxury with Panoramic Views

The primary residence on the property is the Roundhouse, a unique and eco-friendly property that lives in harmony with the surrounding land. The Roundhouse features a unique round (14m diameter) living space along with a panoramic upper chamber. Nine laminated beams emanate from the centre, forming a reciprocal frame system that allows for an expansive interior.

The Roundhouse is a two- or three-bedroom home, depending on your use for the upper chamber. The unique circular structure lends itself to unconventional room shapes, with an open area serving as a combined luxury kitchen, living room, and dining room.

The primary bedroom features an en-suite bath, along with direct access to the sunroom and deck. Both bedrooms and the sunroom feature ample natural light and views through self-cleaning windows, as does the dining room (by way of the sunroom). But the best views by far are from the upper chamber, which features truly panoramic windows for 360-degree views.

Construction materials inside and out are eco-friendly including these elements:

  • Roof based on alpine sedum
  • Heraclith woodfibre cladding coated with lime render
  • 5kw photovoltaic array
  • Living green and copper roof

 

For sustainable, eco-friendly luxury in the Scottish Highlands, the Roundhouse is tough to beat.

The Crofthouse: Informal Wood-Lined Quarters Perfect for Guests or Rentals

The second accommodation on the farm is the Crofthouse, an informal wood-lined building designed with guests or short-term rentals in view. The ground floor features a modest kitchen as well as a shower room and laundry, plus an activity space or garage. On the first floor, you’ll find a comfortable living and dining room, along with a sizeable deck, office, and one bedroom.

The second floor contains two sleeping lofts, perfect for travellers or children.

Construction here, too, is of utmost quality, with vertical timber cladding and a custom-rolled galvanised steel roof. The upper bedrooms are panelled with pine and once again provide stunning views across the strath.

This unique property for sale can be a haven away from busy city life, or it could be the foundation of your next business venture. For more information, [[contact info]].
