Inver House, Dunbeath, Caithness, KW6 6EH

3 bedroom cottage for sale

Property Details

Inver House is a three bedroom cottage sitting in almost two acres of land on a prominent location in an area of natural beauty providing breath-taking vistas over the Moray Firth and up to the Scaraben mountains. Situated with its own lay by and good access, this property is unique in providing opportunities for business or simply for someone seeking to live the good life. This delightful cottage consists of porch, large sitting room/dining area, a large country style kitchen, three good sized bedrooms and bathroom. A back door opens out to a secluded gravelled seating area looking over the extensive grounds to the fields beyond. The property has benefitted from a complete redevelopment in the recent past including the installation of a new oil fired boiler for the central heating. The sitting room also has the benefit of solid fuel heating providing warm cosy nights during winter evenings. A major feature of this property is a second cottage adjacent to the main house which is at present used a storage area but which would easily convert either back to another cottage or could be used to extend the main house, this area would also make an excellent artist studio with the large floor space and open fireplace available. It could also enhance a garden project as a shop or café. Adjacent to this area is a fully fitted and functional workshop at present used for restoration and woodworking projects but can be converted to enhance the property as required. Next to the workshop is a garage again which could be converted as required.

The village of Dunbeath has a Primary School, Pre-school/Playgroup facilities, Church, Community Hall, Public House & Restaurant, Post Office and Shop. Dunbeath village is famous for the novelist Neil Gunn and the surrounding area and its people provided inspiration for several of his novels. The Dunbeath Heritage Centre features interesting displays on the natural and social history of the area. Beautiful walks can be taken down by the Dunbeath Strath along which there are several brochs (ancient fortified houses). The harbour has fine views looking across to Dunbeath Castle. The nearest large town is Wick some 20 miles away. There is a regular bus service to the north and south.
