Fantastic opportunity to purchase a 5 bed detached home with a flexible layout. The property offers generous accommodation by way of a one and a half storey dwelling to the front, and a single storey extension to the rear. A high degree of flexibility is offered in that the main dwelling could be utilised as a spacious three bedroom family home, whilst the extension annex could provide a self contained holiday let, granny flat or long term let. Likewise, the main dwelling lends itself perfectly for use as a B&B or a house of multiple occupancy, and the rear extension could provide owner or management accommodation. Whilst a degree of modernisation is required in some areas, the property will appeal to a wide range of buyers, particularly those seeking a home with the potential to generate additional income. Furthermore, it is an excellent opportunity to purchase a generously proportioned dwellling at a bargain price, in advance of the Nairn Bypass construction.
A private road leads from the A96 to a large parking area at the rear of the house. The property is accessed via a paved and gravelled courtyard, adjacent to the parking area. A glazed door opens into the entrance vestibule and utility area, which in turn gives access to the kitchen and the potential annex accommodation in the extended part of the property. The spacious kitchen in the main dwelling overlooks the front, benefiting from a good range of base and wall units. There is ample space for dining. A door leads through to the well proportioned dining/family room, which gives access to the former front porch and the upper floor. French doors lead through from the dining room to the bright, triple aspect lounge. The lounge boasts a multi fuel stove set on a large tiled hearth and attractive feature stained glass windows. A second door gives access to the former front porch and the staircase to the upper landing.
Three of the bedrooms are located on the upper floor of the main dwelling. Double aspect bedroom one is a spacious double, offering excellent storage. There is bathroom adjacent to bedroom one with an electric shower over the bath. Bedroom two is a single, overlooking the front of the property. A door gives access to the galley style kitchenette, shower room and sitting room. Bedroom three, accessed via the sitting room, is a second generously sized double. A second staircase in the property leads down from the sitting room to the ground floor entrance vestibule.
The potential annex accommodation is single storey, located in the rear extension. This part of the property can be accessed from the entrance vestibule of the main dwelling, or via a private entrance leading from the rear courtyard. It offers the flexibility to be completely separate from the main dwelling if desired. Currently utilised as a lounge, bedroom four is beautifully presented with views out to open fields. A corridor leads through to bedroom five, a spacious double with patio doors to the rear. Bedroom five benefits from a modern en-suite shower room. A galley style kitchenette and a large family bathroom completes the accommodation.
Perfect for outdoor entertaining during the summer months, the paved courtyard area to the rear is bordered by mature shrubs. There is a sheltered gravelled garden area to the side of the property, the front garden is mostly laid to lawn. Bedroom five enjoys a paved patio area accessed via patio doors. The property benefits from a double garage with power and light. A log store and timber shed provides useful outdoor storage.
