Three-bedroom detached house in attractive Black Isle village
Built in 2018, this stylish house is in good condition and located off the A832 and close to the centre of Munlochy, a small village close to Fortrose in one of the Black Isle’s most desirable areas.
This is a beautifully styled house with a graceful interior and well-designed property. It is also in the catchment area for the renowned Fortrose Academy, making it a perfect family home.
Just five miles from Fortrose and positioned close to the boundary of Hill o Hirdie Wood, properties in Belmaduthy Gardens enjoy peace and privacy in a fabulous rural setting. The small settlement consists of several new properties amidst older cottages, lending it a wonderful blend of a new meets settled community.
The property is accessed via an open area of lawn to the front of the house, into a hallway with a cloakroom and WC to the side. The living room echoes the pale neutral palette and has tidy white trim and doors, giving it a clean, contemporary ambience. With a window overlooking the front of the house and glazed double doors to the kitchen, the room is airy and light.
Painted in cheerful but airy colours, the kitchen dining room has glazed double patio doors leading to the garden; the slate-coloured splashback to the worksurfaces offset the wood grain effect wall and floor cabinets, along with the plinth lighting, emphasising the contemporary look of the space. The U-shaped layout is practical and well-provided with a good amount of storage. A spacious dining area has a prime position near the patio doors, making it a great space for indoor-outdoor entertainment.
The staircase opens to the living room and is finished with attractive grey and cream tartan carpeting, creating an elegant look that compliments the property’s aesthetic and palette.
With three bedrooms, a family bathroom, and large windows, the rooms are spacious and well lit; the principal bedroom has a built-in clothing area and a fabulous view over the surrounding area, which includes fields, hills and woodland. There is also an attractive en-suite shower room with a walk-in enclosure, WC, wash hand basin, a large window and storage. The second bedroom has built-in storage and a generous floor space. The smallest bedroom, currently used as a nursery, is charmingly decorated in blue and cream, making it a fabulous room for a young child.
The family bathroom is decorated in cream, with grey panels and offers a good amount of space and storage.
Accessed from the kitchen dining room, the garden has been elegantly designed with a decked patio and pathway leading to an area for seating and barbecues. The lawns are beautifully designed with contemporary beds and paving, creating a stylish and striking look that is also practical. There is a separate gravelled area that is fenced off that could make a good dog run, and that ensures the timber-fenced garden is secure, especially for young children. The garden has a small timber shed, and gates allow access to the drive at the front of the house.
At 87 m2, 18 Belmaduthy Gardens is a nicely sized home for a small family, and its elegant decoration and fabulous location also make it a very special one.
At only six miles from Inverness and on the Moray Firth shore, Fortrose is one of the most desirable locations in Northern Scotland. On the south coast of the world-famous Black Isle, the waters around Fortrose are home to pods of the largest bottlenose dolphins in Europe.
With a High Street made up of many Victorian sandstone and whitewashed properties, the area retains a quaint Highland feel, little changed since it was first constructed. The lovely buildings, comparatively mild weather, beautiful nearby beaches, and attractive countryside make Fortrose popular with visitors.
There is a strong sense of neighbourliness in Fortrose, and residents are very an active part of the town, from supporting its own Community Council, rowing and sailing clubs, golf course, market and community events,
The area is surrounded by important historic sites, including a 13th Century Cathedral, and is near to many Pictish sites and the world-famous Munlochy Bay.
Agriculture, tourism, and freelance working are important types of employment on the Black Isle, but its proximity to Inverness and other nearby commercial and industrial centres makes it a perfect commuting location.
