“Hycliffe” is a beautiful Victorian detached house, set on an elevated site in the desirable West Terrace area of Kingussie.  Surrounded by woodland, the property enjoys stunning panoramic views over the valley to the Cairngorms and has direct access onto the West Terrace circular and Creag Beag woodland walk at the rear.

The property has been renovated and modernised to a high standard, including hand made sash and case double glazed windows, oil fired central heating with traditional style radiators, modern kitchen and bathroom fittings and wood burning stove in the lounge. It retains many traditional features such as the pitch pine staircase, oak doors, high skirtings and ceiling coving, all of which combine to make a comfortable family home of character.


The garden grounds slope upwards from West Terrace and are enclosed with mature rhododendron bushes and terraced flower beds.  A driveway leads up to the top where there is a gravel parking area at the side of the house. Steps and a paved pathway leads up to the rear garden which is open plan and laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs, paved seating areas and timber treehouse.  There are gravel seating areas round three sides of the house in order to take advantage of the panoramic views and position of the sun at various times of the day.
