Close to the village of Contin, this attractive bungalow is located in a beautiful countryside setting but within easy commuting distance of Inverness and Dingwall.

Constructed in 1955 and with an interior floor area of 112 m2, 5 Craigdarroch Drive is a spacious property full of potential. It enjoys views of woodland to the front, and with a large driveway laid with gravel, it has room for several vehicles at the entrance to the property. A large array of solar panels is fitted to the roof at the rear of the bungalow.

The generously sized hallway sweeps into a sumptuous open-plan living and dining room. Featuring a large bay window area which overlooks the garden, this large room is finished in white which is elevated with touches of natural timber shelving in the alcoves, complementing the doors and windows. A double-sided stove sits between the living and family rooms, creating a focal point that connects both spaces.

The family room has elegant proportions offering a cosy seating area and retreat; alcoves and architectural details lend character and additional interest to an already charming space. Patio doors open onto the rear garden.

Accessible from the family room via a small utility area, the kitchen is strikingly finished with dark splash areas above and around the cabinetry. These offset the white walls to create a contemporary and dramatic look, enhanced by a granite-coloured sink and work surfaces. The kitchen can also be entered from the hallway.

Along the corridor are three generously sized bedrooms finished in soft colours and with natural wood finishes on the doors and joinery. The first bedroom has good proportions, with a large, mirrored wardrobe spanning one wall, enhancing the natural light and sense of scale.

The second bedroom overlooks the garden and benefits from south-facing light; there is plenty of space within this bedroom for additional dressing furniture, such as a desk, if used by a teenager, for example. The third is a good size and offers plenty of potential as a child’s bedroom or home office.

The shower room is finished in black and white and has a large walk-in shower enclosure, white-topped vanity unit with WC, and wash hand basin. A large obscure glass window ensures the space is airy and light-filled.

The garden is laid with gravel and has a timber decked patio, and a generous drying green and lawn. A small shed lies to one end. This is a deceptively spacious garden that is simply arranged but offers considerable potential for different layouts for recreation and entertainment, including outbuildings, planting areas and spaces for relaxation.

The bungalow will require some maintenance, which is reflected in its valuation, but it is a fantastic opportunity for someone looking for a property in a fabulous and peaceful setting and will make a sumptuous and very attractive family home.

About Strathpeffer

Nestled within the stunning landscape of the Scottish Highlands, Strathpeffer and its surrounding villages offer an irresistible charm, from its rich history and breathtaking natural beauty to its warm-hearted community.

At just 20 miles from the City of Inverness, and five miles from Dingwall, Stathpeffer is an important landmark in Victorian history. Formerly a spa town with a population today of just over 1000, Strathpeffer, along with its neighbouring villages, is a busy cultural centre that still retains the Victorian splendour of its heyday.

Despite its small population, Strathpeffer and its environs boast a diverse and robust economy that contributes to the livelihoods of its residents. Tourism plays a significant role in the village’s economic landscape, drawing visitors from around the world to experience its charm and explore its surroundings. Historic Victorian architecture contributes to Strathpeffer’s appeal as a tourist destination, and the village has managed to strike a delicate balance between preserving its historical heritage and adapting to modern tourism.

Strathpeffer is well provided with local services, including a doctor’s surgery, pharmacy, and local stores; larger stores and supermarkets can be found nearby in Dingwall. There is a small primary school, and secondary school pupils attend Dingwall Academy, and there are frequent buses to Inverness and Dingwall.
