A rare opportunity to purchase a traditional and deceptively spacious, detached cottage in the popular village of Muir of Ord. This extended and renovated cottage dates back to the late 1800's and is in excellent decorative order. In recent years the extensive renovation work includes gas central heating, installation of two multi fuel stoves, double glazing, the addition of a sunroom and complete upgrade of the kitchen and bathroom. This south facing cottage is located in a quiet location close to local amenities. The accommodation is over two floors. On the ground floor there are three public rooms, the comfortable lounge - this room was previously utilised as a 3rd bedroom - and the dining/family room both benefiting from having a multi fuel stove. The bright sun room to the front overlooks the garden. Access to the modern fitted kitchen is from the dining/family room, this lovely kitchen has wall and base units, an island housing a sink, plumbing and space for washing machine and dishwasher. There is space for table and chairs for informal dining and additional white goods. To complete the downstairs accommodation is the family bathroom with bath, over bath shower, wash basin and WC. On the upper floor are two double bedrooms, both bedrooms have walk in wardrobes and ample space for free standing furniture. From the roadside is a driveway leading to the parking area, from here the grounds extend to both sides. To the right and in front and side of the property is a well maintained garden with small pond, raised and enclosed vegetable beds, and mature shrubs and trees. To the left the ground leads to the single garage, recently built timber work shop and open log store/work area. This is a beautiful traditional home, in a quiet, country feel location and will appeal to anyone looking to live in close proximity to local amenities in a home full of character and charm.
