Close to the centre of Muir of Ord and located on a corner site of a prestigious and established development of mixed housing, this property offers a number of key benefits at an attractive value.

Boasting a potential energy rating of B, once recommendations have been incorporated, and a generous internal space of 103 m2, the property offers a great deal of scope as a comfortable family home with a large garden, and a comfortable well-designed interior layout.

The bungalow has a lawn and gravel front garden and a drive leading to a garage that has been partially converted to include office space. The main entrance opens into a hallway with naturally finished joinery and doors.

The spacious living room features a wood and slate tiled mantelpiece with a cast iron wood burner. Patio doors give access to the lawn at the front of the property. An opening high in the wall connects the living room and dining kitchen, allowing natural light to enter from the south. With appropriate permissions, this could be extended to create a doorway through to the dining kitchen, giving the potential of a large open-plan space.

The kitchen dining room offers scope to create a delightful and well-sized contemporary kitchen. It features a Leisure range with gas burners, and windows overlook the garden. The current layout is predominantly galley style, with a spur at one end that separates the dining space; a door leads to a rear vestibule that features a charming stable door.

Three bedrooms have natural joinery, and all of them attract natural light. The principal bedroom has an area of built-in storage, while the second has a large recess suitable as a generous closet or as a study space for a teenager. The smallest room has a pleasant view of the garden.

The family shower room has high gloss tiles and contemporary sanitaryware, including a large shower enclosure, a grey vanity unit fitted with a WC and an inset wash hand basin, and two large chrome ladder towel rails. There is plumbing and space to one side for laundry appliances.

The garden can be accessed from the rear vestibule. Currently laid with paving and a gated steel enclosure, the large outdoor space is enclosed with timber fencing and has a wooden shed; an area of lawn slopes down from the rear of the garden.

5 The Meadows is a delightful property in an excellent location, and one that has benefitted from updating. With further modernisation and repair, it has plenty of scope as a beautiful home for a small family or couple.

About Muir of Ord

Just nine miles from Inverness and six miles from Dingwall, the village is ideally located to enjoy the remarkable countryside that surrounds it, but sufficiently far enough away from the A9 to emphasise the village’s quiet, community-based feel.

That said, Muir of Ord is famous for its local attractions and is a popular destination for visitors; the Muir of Ord Distillery is close to the centre of the village and retains the pagoda roofs and copper pot stills of traditional distilleries.

Surrounded by rich agricultural land and flanked by the Rivers Beauly and Conon, Muir of Ord has a close community of about 3,000. The village features many independent shops and businesses, including the famous Bad Girl Bakery and an Artysans social enterprise café run by the Calman Trust.

At the heart of the village is the Muir Hub, which has meeting spaces, a cinema, and a music and events venue. Each August, the Black Isle Show, the largest agricultural show in the North, is held just outside the village, attracting entrants and visitors from all around Scotland and over 200 local businesses; the show is one of the most important social and trade events of the calendar,

Muir of Ord has a primary school, health centre, public library, petrol station and a railway station.
