Substantial five-bedroom family home with renovation potential

Located at the end of a short terrace of properties, this appealing five-bedroom house is on the outskirts of Dingwall, backing onto open land at the rear. Approached via steps to the front, 32 Macrae Crescent enjoys an elevated position offering views across Dingwall and to the hills beyond.

The house was constructed in approximately 1955 and, in keeping with buildings of this age, offers a generous interior space of 97 m2, matched by large windows and good-height ceilings, even on the first floor.

Entering from a large front garden, the property opens into a hall and then to a large living room with open-plan access to the kitchen and dining area. Carpeted in grey, this room has a very comfortable feel with a large window giving a great view of the local area and out towards the countryside.

Accessed through a wide archway, the kitchen is in a practical L-shape and is currently fitted with wall and floor cabinets that leave room near the patio door for a naturally well-lit dining area. With access to the hall, decorated in blue and cream and featuring a white sink and a gas hob with an extractor hood, the kitchen is spacious and well laid out. However, there is potential to incorporate a completely new layout and style should the new owner choose.

The ground floor has a sizeable blue-painted bedroom that is to the front of the house and has room for generous storage and furnishings. This room also has an ensuite shower room with a walk-in shower enclosure, WC and wash hand basin.

Upstairs, there are a further four bedrooms that, given the age of the house, reflect the generous sizes of properties of this era. The principal bedroom is particularly spacious, with ample room for a sleeping and seating area. The room also has a fabulous view over hills to the South of Dingwall. The second bedroom is slightly smaller but still generously proportioned.

The two smaller bedrooms are equally usable, although there is the scope to use the smaller of these as an office or dressing room.

Tiled in blues and featuring a bath with shower over and wooden trim, the bathroom is comfortably sized and also has the potential to upgrade into a contemporary new design.

The garden is accessed from the kitchen dining room and has a paved patio area that could be redesigned into a sheltered, private outdoor entertaining area. Steps lead to a generous area of lawn that rises up toward the back to offer views of the neighbouring fields. There is a small outbuilding to the rear of the garden.

Fitted with many solar panels and gas central heating means the house has an above-average EPC rating. And with its generous interior area, interesting garden, and quiet but accessible location in one of the Highland’s most popular towns, 32 Macrae Crescent is an exciting property that offers a tremendous amount of potential to develop into a stunning contemporary home, especially for a larger or extended family.

About Dingwall

Located just 15 miles from the City of Inverness, Dingwall is a bustling market town that still retains many of the beautiful stone buildings that were a sign of its status during the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.

This well-maintained town has a population of about 5,500. It has a lively high street that benefits from many independent shops, cafes and businesses, lending the centre an enjoyable place to visit both by locals and visitors. Many cultural attractions include a well-respected museum, castles and monuments nearby.

With the A9 bypassing the town, Dingwall is just far enough from the main routes to be still considered quiet but not so distant that it feels inaccessible. An easy 25-minute car journey through the lovely countryside and across the Moray Firth via the Kessock Bridge makes the commute to Inverness easily accessible and enjoyable. Alternatively, there are frequent trains and buses to the City and nearby Invergordon.

Dingwall has one secondary school, Dingwall Academy, and one primary school. There is a medical centre, dentists, and a leisure centre with a swimming pool and gym. There are several places of worship, supermarkets, and independent food stores.

The area has extensive Outdoor pursuits, with world-class golf, fishing, walking, and sailing nearby. The NC500 is close to Dingwall, and many historic villages, castles and monuments are within a short driving distance.
