Immaculate four-bedroom detached house in beautiful rural setting
Located near the small, prestigious village of Munlochy and within the catchment area of the renowned Fortrose Academy, this 128m2 property is a well-maintained four-bedroom family home.
Belmaduthy Gardens is a new development of recently constructed properties; number 20 was completed in 2019, meaning it has the benefits of being both comparatively new but within an outstanding finished environment.
The property enjoys considerable natural light, with solar panels installed on its southwest-facing roof taking full advantage of this. Its tidy lawn and drive, whitewashed walls, and grey front door create an attractive contemporary entrance. Elegant paned windows give a graceful nod to a more traditional era of property design.
The property opens into a well-arranged hall finished with white joinery, adding to the sense of space. The living room has a great view to the front of the house and the woodland beyond it. The large double windows allow the room to be filled with natural light, creating a cheerful, welcoming ambience all year round.
A substantial open-plan kitchen-dining room is an elegant link to the garden. Wood grain fronted cabinets and drawer units are plentiful, providing excellent storage and a fabulous look. These are completed with a mid-grey contemporary worktop offering considerable surface area for preparation, serving and display. This styling follows through into the generously sized utility room.
The large dining area provides plenty of room for a table and chairs and space for a dresser or sideboard. Glazed doors lead to the garden.
A cloakroom is conveniently located near the front door and has a WC and wash hand basin. There is also space to add additional storage if required later.
The staircase is carpeted and finished with elegant white balusters, opening onto a nicely sized landing. The four bedrooms are well appointed, with built-in mirrored wardrobes and fabulous views through their large windows.
The principal bedroom is especially generous and has a triple wardrobe and a small internal cupboard. The en-suite enjoys natural light and has a white WC, vanity shelf, and semi-recessed basin; the walk-in shower is integrated, creating a neat, clean line that further enhances the feeling of space.
The three remaining bedrooms are also generously sized, offering additional uses for several purposes, including as a playroom or home office.
The family bathroom is sumptuously finished with naturally coloured narrow strip tiles that offset the woodgrain surfaces perfectly. The bath, with shower over, WC and semi-recessed hand basin, create a warming, high-end feeling space.
The timber-fenced garden is laid with grass and has a timber shed. Simply arranged at the moment, the garden has considerable potential, with plenty of space for a patio and pergola, a play area, and room for growing plants.
This is a beautifully decorated and generously sized home. Set in a fabulous location with a well-designed, tasteful interior and a charming garden, 20 Belmaduthy Gardens is a very special family home that is expected to generate a great deal of interest.
At only six miles from Inverness and on the Moray Firth shore, Fortrose is one of the most desirable locations in Northern Scotland. On the south coast of the world-famous Black Isle, the waters around Fortrose are home to pods of the largest bottlenose dolphins in Europe.
With a High Street made up of many Victorian sandstone and whitewashed properties, the area retains a quaint Highland feel, little changed since it was first constructed. The lovely buildings, comparatively mild weather, beautiful nearby beaches, and attractive countryside make Fortrose popular with visitors.
There is a strong sense of neighbourliness in Fortrose, and residents are very an active part of the town, from supporting its own Community Council, rowing and sailing clubs, golf course, market and community events,
The area is surrounded by important historic sites, including a 13th Century Cathedral, and is near to many Pictish sites and the world-famous Munlochy Bay.
Agriculture, tourism, and freelance working are important types of employment on the Black Isle, but its proximity to Inverness and other nearby commercial and industrial centres makes it a perfect commuting location.
There is a doctor’s surgery in Fortrose, as well as the esteemed Fortrose Academy. Local shops and convenience stores are in the High Street, and larger supermarkets and primary transport links are within a few miles’ drive at Invergordon, Dingwall and Inverness. Buses run regularly from Fortrose into Inverness and Dingwall, and Inverness Airport is only 19 miles away.
