A rare opportunity to purchase an impressive, traditional period property located in the heart of historic Rosemarkie on the Black Isle. Built in circa 1802, the property has been renovated throughout, whilst retaining many of the original features and character of a property of this type. The house was previously extended to the rear to include an impressive formal lounge and dining room. Although currently used as a holiday let, this property would make a fantastic family home with flexible accommodation throughout.
The original dwelling house is spread over 3 floors. The ground floor has a cottage style kitchen with ample units and work surface space, a fantastic Rangemaster stove and a feature wood burning stove. There is a master bedroom with a wood burning stove set within the original period fire place and it comes with an en-suite wet room. From the entrance hall stairs lead to the first floor where there are two well-appointed double sized bedrooms, both with windows on dual aspect and there is a modern family bathroom with shower over bath. On the top floor are two attic bedrooms with areas of limited headroom, which are an ideal haven for children. Both rooms have a nautical theme with ship cabins, doors with port holes and come with fitted storage. Completing this floor is a separate W.C. The impressive extension of the property has a second entrance to the front, which opens into a hallway. From the hall is a good sized utility room and useful shower room. Stairs from the hall lead to an office/study and storage room on the first floor. Beyond the hallway leads into the formal dining room with a feature stone fireplace, wood burning stove and French doors opening out to the courtyard. A further set of French doors lead into the impressive lounge with vaulted ceiling allowing light from the abundance of Velux windows and further windows overlooking the garden. The lounge also has a feature wood burning stove. The property comes with double glazing throughout and oil fired central heating.
The house is set on a generous corner plot, with a large sloped garden with views of the sea from the top. There is a fantastic patio/courtyard area for entertaining, as well as several outbuildings for storage. A gated driveway provides access and parking for several vehicles.
