Enjoy all that picturesque Portsoy has to offer all year round with this great family home, writes Cheryl Livingstone
The Scottish Traditional Boat Festival in Portsoy is an event not to be missed – evident from the amount of people that descend on the fishing village for it.
It is a highlight in Portsoy’s calendar where people can go spend the weekend and enjoy all the village has to offer.
If a weekend just isn’t enough for you, then I think I have the answer. There is now an opportunity to live in Portsoy all year round.
Number 37 North High Street, Portsoy, is a charming C listed cottage which sits in an elevated position where you can enjoy stunning sea views and look at the 17th-century harbour.
Located close to amenities as well as natural beauty, this home is ideally suited for both a permanent home or a holiday retreat.
The quaint home is delightful from the outside in with its crow stepped western gable and many more highlights inside.
On the ground floor you will find a rustic kitchen, family bathroom and the first of the two bedrooms. Both the kitchen and first bedroom have north facing aspects towards the harbour.
Thanks to the windows, the kitchen is a lovely bright room and has a range of fitted units and ample space for a dining table.
Upstairs the spacious sitting room is flooded with light thanks to windows on three sides where you can sit and enjoy lovely views of the harbour. A wood burning stove and shelved alcove make a great focal point in this room. The second bedroom is also a great size and once again takes full advantage of the gorgeous views on offer.
Outside the house, on the market for offers over £160,000, there is a front garden which is terraced and has a floral border and areas of gravel and two storage sheds.
Portsoy has a range of amenities including shops, pub and hotels as well as primary schooling. And further amenities including secondary school, leisure and shopping facilities, are available at nearby Banff just eight miles away.
