Inviting semi-detached house on a generous corner site
Located in a peaceful residential area of popular Alness, this attractive house is amongst a mix of differing property styles along a leafy road close to the River Averon and Coulhill Wood.
Constructed in 1980, 20 Braeface is well-maintained for its age and offers 74 m2 of comfortable living accommodation. The property is accessed via a gate in mature hedging opening onto lawns with attractive trees, creating a dignified welcome to the house.
The entrance hall has an interestingly designed alcove for coats and a small under-stair storage area. White timber panelled interior doors and hard floor coverings complement the clean lines and neutral decor.
In the comfortably proportioned living room, large patio windows open onto the garden, and facing West the room enjoys warm light accentuated by its neutral tones and white painted joinery and trim.
A spacious kitchen-dining room is a delight, with its generous black worksurface that perfectly offsets the soft white floor and wall cabinets. A large storage cupboard is at one end of the kitchen, which, together with its colour scheme, lends the kitchen a country feel. The design and layout are elegant and emphasise the generous lines of the kitchen. The dining area is roomy and located well within the space. However, given the generous area, there are plenty of permutations to remodel the kitchen to an entirely new layout should the new owner choose to.
Upstairs the three bedrooms are all brightly lit and follow the neutral palette used throughout the ground floor. The principal bedroom is generous and features a built-in wardrobe. With a great west-facing view of the garden area, this bedroom is well-placed to receive the evening sun.
The second bedroom is comfortable and would make an excellent room for a child or visitor. The third bedroom features a step that could be utilised as a part of a storage or display area, or the room could be repurposed as a home office or space for crafting.
Finally, the cosy family bathroom is well appointed with a bath with shower over, WC and wash-hand basin. The obscure patterned window allows plenty of light into the room.
A single garage is accessible across the drive and paved area to the side of the property, which can be reached through the kitchen or the garden. It is a functional space with steps offering some scope for decorative treatment and storage, such as garden sheds or even a small greenhouse.
This is a lovely property that is both comfortable and well-looked after. Some decorative updating and modernisation could add benefits should the new owner choose, but even as it is, 20 Braeface offers a lovely home for a small family.
Alness is a friendly town in the Highland Council area of Scotland and is situated on the beautiful Cromarty Firth. With a population of around 5,000 people and 46 km north of Inverness and just 16 km south of Dingwall, this small settlement is a popular commuting town and a strong community, giving the best of both worlds.
The town is also home to several shops, restaurants, and pubs. It is a popular tourist destination, with attractions such as the Black Isle, the Fearn Peninsula, and some magnificent Highland landscapes on the doorstep. With a strong agricultural focus and an emerging entrepreneurial spirit, Alness has a fabulous blend of the old and the new. Given its strong community and relative ease of commuting, it is a delightful area for anyone considering moving to Scotland from elsewhere.
Alness has its own railway station on the Far North Line, and a bus service connects Alness with Inverness, Dingwall, and nearby towns. The A9 is less than a mile away and connects the town with Falkirk in the centre of Scotland to Thurso in the far north. Inverness Airport is just a 40-minute drive away.
The town has a primary and a secondary school, several supermarkets, health care facilities. There is also a leisure centre and swimming pool.
