Close to a world-famous beauty spot, Colarno has plenty to offer those in search of a home in a tranquil location, writes Susan Welsh
Loch Flemington is known to bird-watchers across the world as it has been designated as a Special Protection Area (SPA) and is an internationally important breeding site for Slavonian grebe and a range of other rare, indigenous plants and animals.
The beautiful loch is also said to have had in it an island, upon which a castle once stood – in very dry summers its foundations can be seen.
Close to the loch, which at one time was considered one of the best places in Scotland to fish for trout, is a lovely bungalow which, for the right buyer, could be their own wee castle.
Nicely presented throughout, Colarno offers comfortable accommodation in an idyllic, peaceful location at a fixed price of £239,000.
From the road, double wrought iron gates open to a loc-block driveway surrounded by immaculate gardens featuring a mixture of lawns, flower beds and mature shrubs.
The accommodation begins with an entrance vestibule which leads to an inner hall with generous cupboard space.
The lounge/sun room is a bright, well-proportioned room with patio doors leading to a paved area, while the L-shaped kitchen has a good range of units and is on an open plan basis with a large dining area.
The kitchen comes with an electric cooker and is plumbed for a dishwasher. Future space for appliances can be found in the adjacent utility room, which also has a door leading to the back garden.
The bungalow has three bedrooms including a master bedroom with en-suite shower room and a good selection of wardrobes and cupboards.
The second bedroom also has a double fitted wardrobe with mirrored sliding doors while the third bedroom has a double fitted wardrobe.
The family bathroom comprises a three-piece white suite.
Outside, there is a substantial double garage that would be ideal for the handyman as it comes complete with a range of work benches.
The garage has a concrete floor, power and light, water tap and has 12 solar panels on the roof.
The well maintained gardens include patio areas, a well-maintained and planted rockery, and greenhouse and shed.
As Loch Flemington is almost midway between Nairn and Inverness, it would be ideal for those looking for a home with an easy commute.
