Attractive semi-detached bungalow with a pretty garden close to the Dornoch Firth
Tucked away on the Fearn Peninsula, this lovely bungalow is in a desirable rural setting, just five miles from the Royal Burgh of Tain. Constructed in 1970, 1 Fuaran is amongst a small community of houses and bungalows, offering a neighbourly feel to this beautifully remote but accessible location.
The house has been well maintained during its 53 years. The entrance is via a tidy front garden with lawn, borders and gravel paths. The entrance hall is neutrally decorated and opens onto a south-east-facing living room that has a large window, and comfortable proportions. The alcoves, ceiling coving, and hard flooring lend character, further enhanced by the soft yellow and grey decor.
At the rear of the bungalow is a large kitchen with plentiful wall and floor units. A window above the sink looks over the garden and provides an attractive modern space with a touch of an appealing country feel in keeping with its rural location. A recessed area to the back of the kitchen could be used as a small dining area or for storage.
The principal bedroom overlooks the garden giving it a fabulous view through the large window. There is plenty of room for free-standing furniture.
A second bedroom, currently used as a sitting area, is situated at the front of the property, ensuring it receives plenty of light. There is ample room for bedroom furniture, or it will equally make a good home office.
The family shower room is spacious and has an accessible shower and safety rails. Fittings are in white, and there is plenty of room for upgrading to a bathroom, should that be preferred.
The garden is accessible through the kitchen, and it is an absolute delight. There is an area of decking for a patio, and the garden has been nicely designed with a lawn, curving gravel paths, borders, and shrubs. At the end of the garden is a fabulous summer house that could be used as an indoor-outdoor space or for gardening. There is also a small timber shed.
Number 1 Fuaran is simply decorated and incorporates a range of decorative styles and floorings; the paintwork is primarily white, and the windows are varnished timber. This fabulous property is comfortable and attractive but can easily be decorated and modernised to create a pleasant contemporary home. This will suit a small family or, given its fabulous rural location, a desirable holiday home.
Overlooking the beautiful Dornoch Firth, Tain is a Royal Burgh with its routes going back to before 1066.

The West Coast and the far North of Scotland can be reached within 90 minutes, ideal for major tourism routes such as the NC500 and the numerous wildlife, sporting, and historic locations in the area.
The centre of Tain itself is bustling and has many long-established independent shops, together with major supermarkets. The town has a strong community and a great sense of pride.
Tain is 35 miles from Inverness and 23 miles from Dingwall. A good medical centre and several primary schools are nearby; older pupils attend the renowned Tain Royal Academy.
