Pristine mid-century three-bedroom semi, fabulous first property; band A Council Tax

Set back slightly from the road with a grassy verge to the front, this charming 1½ -storey house offers a spacious 86m2 family home in a peaceful residential setting.

The house is painted white and entered via an immaculate timber-fenced front garden with paving and gravel. The property is decorated throughout in light neutral tones, with white panelled doors and joinery.

The living room has a pale grey carpet and a light grey papered feature wall. The room has an attractive shape with alcoves and coving lending character and interest.

The kitchen features an extensive one-wall layout, creating a modern, clean line that emphasises the room’s length while leaving space for a dining table and chairs, and a large fridge. Wooden fronted wall and floor cabinets and a dark worktop, sink, and splashbacks give a tidy and practical feeling while complementing the contemporary setting. A separate utility room continues this look, providing practical space and a door to the rear garden.

Currently used as a place for pets, the ground-floor bedroom is spacious, and has a view to the side of the property; there is also a useful built-in cupboard.

The family bathroom is conveniently located nearby and has a bath with shower over it, WC and wash hand basin. A wooden-style vanity unit and marble effect panels complete the space.

A carpeted staircase leads from the hall, well-filled with natural light from the full-length obscure glass window at the base of the stairs.

Two double bedrooms are on the first floor, both of which have coombed ceilings creating attractive characterful spaces. The principal bedroom has a deeply set dormer window with a view to the south and across the neighbouring houses; the second bedroom overlooks the garden and has a view of the local hills.

The garden is enclosed with timber fencing and is laid with a lawn. A paved pathway leads to a gate to the front of the property and nearby residents’ parking. There is plenty of room in the garden to include areas for growing spaces, a patio and storage at a future date.

172 Shillinghill is a fantastic property which has been well-cared for and decorated. It has a substantial footprint, especially given its Council Tax of Band A. It also has the good looks and character of a mid-century property, a style which is currently much in demand.

This beautiful house is in a fabulous location close to shops and schools, making it a practical and attractive family home.

About Alness

Alness is a 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 entrerpreunrial 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 to Thurso in the far north of Scotland, and Inverness Airport is just a 40-minute drive away.

The town has a primary and a secondary school, several supermarkets, health care facilities and Alness Primary School and Alness Academy. There is also a doctor’s surgery, leisure centre and swimming pool.
