The Farmhouse is a wonderfully traditional 5 bedroom detached property, boasting a fantastic sea view, a very large outbuilding, and large garden grounds. The property is located in a sought after area of the Highland county of Caithness and was previously run as a successful B&B for some years, with live in accommodation for the owners which can have a separate feel to the main house depending on which rooms would be for guests. Equally, this would make a spacious family home or holiday home in a fabulous location. The area is rich in wildlife such as deer and short eared owls.
There is a homely feel to the property with some rooms benefitting from more modern decor and others requiring the new owner's stamp to be put on them. The property as a whole is absolutely in live-in condition and provides a number of uses such as a family home or B&B establishment.
The very large outbuilding is ideal for use as a workshop in its current layout but with several areas to the building, it could easily be converted into a holiday let or additional owner's accommodation. There is power and light within the outbuilding. Some of the items such as worktops and panelling for overhead storage may be left depending on the purchaser's requirements. The additional buildings are all of corrugated iron roofing and it has been recently upgraded.
In addition to the large outbuilding, there is also a static caravan which has power and plumbing. The caravan itself has been used for storage and is a shell and as such the new owners may wish to place a new caravan on the site or use the plumbing for a glamping pod or little log cabin.
The Garden Grounds are well maintained and the outside space is ideal for families with areas laid to grass as well as areas which could house an outdoor dining table to benefit from the amazing view in the summer months. There is a large driveway suitable for several vehicles, tourers, or vans.
The Kitchen/Diner could benefit from some upgrading, such as more modern kitchen cabinets. The room itself is of a good size and has all the storage required for a family's requirements and the upgrades could be done over time whilst the new purchaser is living in the property. There is room for a 4 seater dining table and the lounge is just off the kitchen.
Should the purchaser wish to move the rooms around to suit modern living, this can easily be achieved. The wall between the lounge and kitchen could be knocked through to create a large open plan kitchen/diner and the downstairs master bedroom which is of an excellent size could be converted into the family lounge. This would still allow for 4 bedrooms within the property.
The Lounge is just off the kitchen and benefits from a working log fire. The room has ample space to fit a full lounge suit within as well as a television or other living room furniture.
A lovely touch to this room is three pictures which the owner will be happy to leave behind of the house in satellite view. The pictures are framed and provide a great history to the property as it has been renovated and extended over the years. The pictures date 1945, 1995, and 2008.
There is a downstairs Bathroom located to one side of the house, which provides a good opportunity for the house to be split into both owner and guest accommodation.
The Shower Room could be used as a guest bathroom or owner's bathroom depending on the needs of the purchaser. The suite is clean and modern.
Bedroom Four / Study
Bedroom Four could also be used as a study as it faces the front of the house where there is the beautiful sea view. This has been used as a bedroom and fits in a single bed and a wardrobe, as well as a bedside table. This is close enough to the shower room to be ideal for any family members who may be unable to use stairs.
The Master Bedroom is an excellent size with a step up to an area which feels as though it could easily be separate the the lower area. This could allow for a large wardrobe space or over time to converted into a dressing area.
If the purchaser wants additional lounge space, this room would also be ideal as a second reception room.
Bedroom Three is one of the rooms which was utilised as a guest room and has wooden cladding and plenty of storage space for clothes or bed linens.
Bedroom Two has also in the past been used as a guest room and as such has its own key and lock. It has wooden cladding and benefits from the sea view to front of the property.
Bedroom Five also was previously used as a guest room and has space for a double bed and has plenty of storage space for clothes within the wall where handy cupboard doors have been installed.
The Sun Room is the entrance to the property and can provide space as a porch or as a conservatory as being placed to the front of the house allows any dwellers to sit with a drink and soak in the view of the horizon across the sea.
