Description

Close to fields and woodland and within sight of the original millwheel, this absolutely charming property offers enormous potential as a small home for a single person or couple, or for consideration as an investment.

Constructed in approximately 1850 and part of a conversion that includes six properties, 3 Milton Mill has a beautiful setting in a small hamlet five miles from Invergordon and a short distance from the Cromarty Firth.

With sandstone walls, traditional roofing, and green spaces, the property is in an enchanting building full of history and benefits from being close to important archaeological sites and areas of outstanding areas of natural importance, including the RSPB reserve at Nigg Bay.

Approached via a pretty path leading to a communal entrance, the property is generously proportioned at 63 m2. A ledge and brace door opens into a white-painted hallway featuring a metal spiral staircase.

The ground floor consists of a large double bedroom with a deep window overlooking the lawns to the rear of the property. An expanse of built-in mirrored wardrobes reflects light into the room and further enhances the feeling of space.

Fully tiled in green and ochre, the bathroom is close to the entrance and has a bath with a shower over it, WC and pedestal wash hand basin.

A generously sized utility room is lined with practical cupboard space, and there is plentiful space in the entrance hallway for bookcases and small furnishings.
The wooden stepped spiral staircase opens directly into the kitchen on the first floor. Spacious and finished with earth-coloured tiles, the kitchen features a charming partially coombed ceiling. Its L-shaped layout of wooden-fronted cabinets is practical and neatly laid out. An area to one side gives further space for a dresser or other white goods as required.

The living room has polished flooring with modern blue floral paper on one wall. Two small windows that are contemporary with the building are complemented by the newer, large skylight that dominates a gallery-style space; this creates a natural area for a dining table or desk as required.

Outside, residents’ parking is available, and green spaces enhance the rural and traditional feel of the site.

3 Milton Mill is a fascinating property with fabulous potential. With some decorative updating, it offers a spectacular and affordable first home or a great investment as a fabulous holiday property, and early viewing is advised.

About Invergordon

Invergordon is located to the north of the Cromarty Firth. There are excellent road and rail links to the growing City of Inverness to the south and Wick in the far north, giving access to the rugged beauty of Caithness and Orkney.

Once a naval town, Invergordon enjoyed the oil boom of the 1970s. It is now a thriving area for industry with the manufacture and maintenance of wind turbines and world-famous distilleries, including one of the largest in Europe. The port is regularly visited by cruise liners, a welcome boost for local businesses concerned with tourism.

The town of Invergordon itself is bustling and vibrant with a welcoming and close-knit community. There is a notable artistic community and the town is renowned for its 17 murals that tell the area’s history.

Invergordon has one secondary school, Invergordon Academy, and four primary schools.
A medical centre, a small community hospital, several dentists, and an excellent leisure centre with swimming pools, a cycling track and an extensive gym are all near the town centre. There are several places of worship, including the famous Invergordon Parish Church.

Outdoor pursuits are extensive in the area with world-class golf, fishing, walking, and sailing all within easy reach. For nature lovers, the aurora borealis is often seen, and there is much wildlife, including the largest bottlenose dolphins in Europe which are regular visitors to the Cromarty Firth and enjoy swimming near the shore. The NC500 is close by and many historic villages, buildings and monuments are easily accessible.

Invergordon is 25 miles from Inverness, 15 miles from Dingwall, and has good rail, road and bus services.
