Art Deco House For Sale In Inverness
"The Artist's Cottage" is the realisation of a design created by Scottish architect and artist, Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1900. Mackintosh was a designer in the Arts and Crafts movement and was the main representative of Art Nouveau in the United Kingdom. He probably intended the building to be for himself and his wife Margaret MacDonald, but he never actually executed the build.

The plans and elevational drawings were found in the Hunterian Art Gallery in Glasgow and it is from this original material that the working drawings for this project, completed in 1992, were produced. The result is a beautifully crafted, well executed Art Deco property built with a dedicated attention to detail, both inside and outside which takes full advantage of modern building methods and materials.

The property comprises of a house and artist's studio with a walled garden. The principal living accommodation is in the four / five bedroom Artists Cottage and Studio, a two storey cube with the strong batter of the main walls rising to softly rounded parapets interrupted by contrasting verticals and deeply pierced window openings, all of which presents a design of much sculptural force.

Most of the windows on the ground floor have been patterned with leaded glass from designs taken from a variety of Mackintosh sources to create a stunning effect.

This expertly crafted Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed property is in an attractive setting 12 miles south of Inverness and would make a great home for any Mackintosh fan looking for flexible and extensive accommodation.
