Full Description

A rare opportunity to purchase a unique semi-detached period property located in the heart of historic Fortrose on the Black Isle. Built in the late 17th century, the property was originally part of a row of cottages with the first and second floors added later. The house now offers a spacious and individual family home full of charm and character. Set within mature grounds extending to approximately 0.5 acres, the beautiful gardens lead all the way down to St Andrews Walk, giving access to the harbour and shores of the Moray Firth. The house itself is spread over 3 floors with flexible living accommodation. On the ground floor is the lounge with multi-fuel stove. From the lounge there is access to the sun room with large patio doors opening to the south facing patio. The large dining kitchen comes with a Stanley range which also heats the hot water and the radiators. There is a utility room off of the kitchen and a useful shower-room with wc. On the first floor are 3 double bedrooms. Bedroom 1 comes with the original open fire and surround. Both bedrooms 1 and 3 have views of Fortrose Cathedral. Bedroom 2 comes with dual aspect windows and views to the gardens and the Moray Firth beyond. The family bathroom completes this floor. The attic floor has 3 further double bedrooms. There is double glazed sash and case windows and oil central heating throughout. The beautiful south facing garden grounds include a large lawn area, a patio, rockery, herb garden, raised vegetable beds, 2 summer houses, 2 timber sheds, a stone-built coal and wood shed and a greenhouse. Both the summer houses are placed to enjoy the views down towards the Moray Firth. The house is also positioned directly across from the historic ruins of Fortrose Cathedral on Academy Street. There is on-street parking.
This spacious and charming house, coupled with its gardens and location, is the perfect choice for a family looking for a special home.
