This characterful whitewashed semi-detached house is nestled in the popular and beautiful Black Isle village of Rosemarkie. Located just metres from the Moray Firth and a fabulous beach, this lovely property offers a rare chance to buy a mid-century home in a spectacular location.
Entering through a sunny porch, the south facing living room is filled with light; generously proportioned as is typical of properties of this age, the room has good height ceilings and a (no longer used) chimney breast creating interesting shape.
The galley kitchen is neatly laid out with floor and wall cabinets with a fitted extractor hood, and partially tiled walls. A window overlooks the garden and a small cupboard provides additional storage space. To the side is a dining room that has double-aspect windows and room for a comfortable dining table and chairs.
A carpeted staircase leads to the first floor; the sunny master bedroom is spacious with built-in cupboards and views across the neighbouring houses. This room also benefits from generous high ceilings. The second bedroom is a good size with a pleasant view towards the Moray Firth.
The family bathroom with WC, wash hand basin, and bath with a shower over completes the first floor. The first-floor landing has a window with fabulous views over the Moray Firth, and ensures this part of the property receives as much light as possible.
A timber-fenced garden is laid with lawn and gravel and has a few flower borders. Paving leads to the side and front of the house. The south-facing graveled front garden has decorative concrete boundaries and walls; a small timber shed and attractive gates and hedging complete the garden area. There is unrestricted parking nearby.
Although set in the middle of a residential area, the property is a well-established and part of a close community. Mackenzie Terrace also overlooks a large green playing field with a direct view of the Moray Firth and nearby access to the beaches, making it an attractive and desirable location.
This is a splendid property that will benefit from some modernisation and decorative repair, but once completed will give new owner a beautiful home in a wonderful area. Given its location in one of the Highland’s most outstanding regions, and it ease of access to Inverness, 3 Mackenzie Terrace has the potential of becoming a comfortable family residence, or even a wonderful holiday retreat.
Just 12 miles from Inverness, Rosemarkie lies on the outskirts of the popular village of Fortrose on the south coast of the world-famous Black Isle.
Situated on the Markie Burn, the stream runs into the spectacular RSPB nature reserve, the Fairy Glen, and its waterfall. Visited by people throughout the year, one of Rosemarkie’s main attractions is its renowned beach. With a community-run cafe, rockpools, watersports, and some of the best snorkelling in Scotland, the wide sands and relatively calm waters still allow visitors peace and quiet. Further along the coast is Chanonry Point – one of the prime spots for observing Bottlenose dolphins in the UK.
Rosemarkie is also home to an important collection of Pictish stones, including one of the largest in Scotland.
Doctors and schools can be found in nearby Fortrose, and the highly regarded Fortrose Academy is nearby. Supermarkets and major transport links are within a few miles’ drive at Invergordon, Dingwall and Inverness, and buses run regularly from Rosemarkie into Inverness and Dingwall. Inverness Airport is only 21 miles away.
