Fabulous first home with renovation potential in quiet residential setting
The entrance to 71 Cluny Road is via a fully enclosed, pretty garden with a neat lawn and steps leading to a front door offering a private and sunny space given its south-facing aspect.
Constructed in approximately 1965, this attractive property opens onto a hallway benefiting from inbuilt storage and then onto a well-proportioned living space with hard flooring and views to the front and rear gardens. The large windows and alcoves add light and shape to the room, creating a relaxing space. Currently decorated with patterned wallpapers, including a red feature wall, the living room offers the prospect of renovating to a modern living area for someone interested in exploring interior design.
The living room is of an open-plan layout with the kitchen which features a large island with inset gas burners and a granite worktop. The rear wall has been decorated with a wooden-styled splashback. Contemporary fittings, including modern cabinets, sink and worktop, lend the space a striking look; however, there is plenty of opportunity to upgrade and modernise the kitchen to the new owner’s taste, as well as to remodel the open plan layout of the space, given the appropriate permissions. The kitchen also has a large window and a door leading to the rear garden.
A wallpapered and carpeted stairwell leads to the first floor, with two bedrooms. Each of these is generously sized, and both have two large windows and a built-in cupboard. The front bedroom has a lovely south-facing view of the hills beyond the houses opposite.
The shower room has been painted white with dark panels near the wash hand basin and in the shower enclosure. There is an electric shower, WC, ladder towel rail and obscure glass window for privacy.
The rear garden is accessed via the kitchen and down a short flight of steps. Enclosed with timber fencing and shrubs, the exterior is private and has much potential for redesigning. Currently laid with gravel and paving slabs and two existing outbuildings, this garden offers the new owner considerable opportunity to upgrade and convert into a comfortable, secluded contemporary outdoor space to entertain and relax.
Double glazed throughout, with good quality timber fittings, and given its location in a popular Highland town, 71 Cluny Road offers a first-time buyer looking for a property to upgrade and on which to exercise their property renovation skills a fabulous opportunity to create a charming contemporary home.
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.
