If you are the type of property owner that likes to entertain at home and host the occasional ceilidh, then I’ve found the right house for you.
Ullinish House, a spacious detached bungalow in Bonar Bridge, has an enormous open-plan living room/dining room measuring more than 40ft by 20ft – that’s plenty of space should you fancy a wee dance or two.
The room has a nice multi-fuel stove which makes a welcoming focal point, and patio doors opening to the rear patio.
This space also enjoys lovely views across the large garden to the Dornoch Firth.
On the market at offers over £325,000, Ullinish House, built by Roy Homes in 2003, sits in around one-and-a-half acres of elevated ground which means it enjoys superb views overlooking Bonar Bridge.
Incidentally, the asking price is £10,000 less than the Home Report valuation – no catch, no hidden issues, just a genuine bargain for the buyer who is quick off the mark.
The accommodation begins with an entrance porch and L-shaped hallway which leads to the main rooms.
Along with the impressive open-plan lounge and dining room, there’s a large kitchen with a good selection of base and wall-mounted units, electric Rangemaster range cooker, fridge freezer, dishwasher, an island with sink and drainer, with ample room for informal dining.
A rear porch gives access to the side garden and there’s a walk-in pantry/storeroom with base units, shelving and work surface along with a utility room and WC.
The master bedroom is really large and enjoys fine views and comes complete with a walk-in dressing area and an en suite shower room.
The second bedroom is also a good-sized double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and it comes with an en suite bathroom, which can also be accessed from the hallway.
Further accommodation includes an office and hobby room – previously designed as two bedrooms but now one room with fitted wardrobes which could be a third bedroom.
Although a bungalow, the property has a fully floored attic with light and power, which could be developed into living space given the necessary planning consents.
With ample storage space, generous living areas and oil-fired central heating, double glazing and solar panels, this home would make an ideal buy for both families or young professionals alike looking for quiet and tranquil living but within easy commuting distance of Tain, Dornoch and Inverness.
The gardens extend into a woodland area and are mainly laid to lawn but have a nice selection of established shrubs and bushes, while a pond helps create a relaxing atmosphere.
There’s a nice summer house and patio area that’s ideal for alfresco dining, and plenty of parking space for several vehicles.
In addition, there is a large detached double garage with electric door and several sheds providing storage and work space.
Local amenities in Bonar Bridge include shops, hotels, restaurants, a post office, bank, nine-hole golf course and primary school.
