Enviable views and a fixed price make this Highland bungalow a good deal for the right buyer, writes Susan Welsh
It’s been with something of a sense of relief that the peak-time restrictions connected to the roadworks on the Kessock Bridge have come to an end, weeks earlier than expected.
Now that commuters no longer face lengthy delays as a matter of routine, the idea of buying a home on the Black Isle becomes very appealing.
Spindrift, a detached bungalow, certainly has plenty going for it, as along with beautiful uninterrupted views across the Cromarty Firth and the mountains beyond, it’s on at a fixed price of £250,000.
With the worry of guessing how much to bid removed, all the new buyer need concern themselves with is where to place their furniture.
For the bungalow is in mint condition and ready to move into having been freshly decorated and carpeted.
Set in around half an acre of mature grounds in a quiet, private location, the bungalow is within minutes of the village of Culbokie and within easy reach of the A9 to Inverness and Dingwall.
Spacious throughout, the bungalow would suit a family or a couple alike.
The accommodation includes a hall with lots of good storage space, a large lounge with open fire and stunning views to the front, a dining room with patio doors to the rear and an archway into the well-proportioned kitchen.
Off the kitchen is a useful utility room with door to the rear garden.
There are four double bedrooms, all with fitted mirrored wardrobes, and a family bathroom.
The master bedroom, overlooking the front of the property with views beyond, benefits from an en-suite shower-room.
As part of a recent refurbishment, there’s been neutral carpets laid in the hall, dining room and all the bedrooms which also have had new mirrored wardrobe doors installed.
With new windows to the front and fresh decor throughout, there’s no big “job list” waiting for the new owners.
There is double glazing throughout and oil-fired central heating.
Outside there is a gravel driveway with turning point leading to the large detached double garage with power and light.
The front garden is mainly laid to lawn and bordered with shrub beds while the back garden is enclosed by a mature hedge and has a lawn, shrub beds, a vegetable plot, rotary clothes drier and patio area for entertaining.
The size of Spindrift, gardens and its location make it a good choice for those looking for a semi-rural home within easy commuting distance.
But there are plenty of local amenities if you want to stay close by.
The village has a post office/general store, bar/restaurant, village hall, play park and a new primary school within easy reach.
Secondary schooling is available at Fortrose Academy and a free bus service is provided for travelling to and from school.
There is easy access to a wide variety of outdoor sports and activities.
Additional amenities at nearby Fortrose include an 18-hole golf course and an excellent range of water sports including a sailing club.
