Description

This stunning early 20th-century white-washed cottage has far-reaching views of the Cromarty Firth and surrounding agricultural lands. Located in a small community, Eastcombe is meticulously decorated and has the feel of an iconic country residence, but with the added benefit of being within commuting distance of Inverness and large towns.

A drive leads to a single garage, with gravelled and paved area surrounding the exterior. Enjoying a south-facing outlook, the house looks across the neighbouring fields to one of the most interesting bodies of water in northern Scotland.

Opening from the hallway, the kitchen has an iconic country feel; cheerful red, white, and ochre tiles surround the induction range, and a large stainless-steel sink complements the sunny yellow walls. Shaker-style floor and wall cabinets are plentiful, and their u-shaped arrangement leaves space for a large kitchen island. Painted in a very soft and elegant grey, the cabinetry offsets the oiled wooden worksurfaces beautifully, giving this classically styled kitchen a delightful modern twist.

The open-plan living and dining room is large and has a sense of comfort and timelessness. The dining area is between the kitchen and the living room; a separate sunroom is through an open archway to one side. Benefiting from a considerable amount of natural light from the south, this further enhances the feeling of intimacy in the living area, with a sage green feature wall that draws the eye to create a cosy feeling space around the wood-burning stove.

All three of these spaces perfectly complement each other, creating a cohesive arrangement that blends entertainment, retreat, and relaxation very well.

The first of three bedrooms is located on the ground floor, featuring a textured wall to offset the pale apricot decor; this room also enjoys lovely views and is generously sized, creating an opulent, comfortable space. It is adjacent to an attractive shower room, with natural-coloured floor tiles giving a feeling of warmth and luxury; fittings include a curved shower enclosure, WC and hand basin, and ladder towel rail.

The property’s generous interior space 116 m2 is also evident on the first floor, which is reached by a striking glass and wood dog-leg staircase. The green decor is repeated on the stairs and landing, creating aesthetic harmony with the ground floor.

The two upstairs bedrooms are similar in size. With soft-coloured palettes, coombed ceilings, and views to the north and south, both are charming in both shape and decoration. One room has a built-in double wardrobe with white cupboard doors.

The family shower room is finished in earth-coloured mosaic tiles and has a large walk-in shower enclosure with a white WC and pedestal wash hand basin. A deep casement window allows the space to be filled with daylight.

Outside, the large garden has a sandstone-flagged terrace, a lawn with rockeries, and a play area laid with bark and wood. Two substantial outbuildings offer space for storage, workshops, or even scope for conversion into office or studio use.

Eastcombe is a remarkable property with incredible views. Its fabulous location, beautiful design, and practical space make this an exceptional family home, and with the relevant permissions, one that could offer the potential for various business uses.

About Invergordon

Invergordon is located to the north of the Cromarty Firth. There are excellent road and rail links to the growing City of Inverness to the south and Wick in the far north, giving access to the rugged beauty of Caithness and Orkney.

Once a naval town, Invergordon enjoyed the oil boom of the 1970s. It is now a thriving area for industry with the manufacture and maintenance of wind turbines and world-famous distilleries, including one of the largest in Europe. The port is regularly visited by cruise liners, a welcome boost for local businesses concerned with tourism.

The town of Invergordon itself is bustling and vibrant with a welcoming and close-knit community. There is a notable artistic community and the town is renowned for its 17 murals that tell the area’s history.

Invergordon has one secondary school, Invergordon Academy, and four primary schools.
A medical centre, a small community hospital, several dentists, and an excellent leisure centre with swimming pools, a cycling track and an extensive gym are all near the town centre. There are several places of worship, including the famous Invergordon Parish Church.

Outdoor pursuits are extensive in the area with world-class golf, fishing, walking, and sailing all within easy reach. For nature lovers, the aurora borealis is often seen, and there is much wildlife, including the largest bottlenose dolphins in Europe which are regular visitors to the Cromarty Firth and enjoy swimming near the shore. The NC500 is close by and many historic villages, buildings and monuments are easily accessible.

Invergordon is 25 miles from Inverness, 15 miles from Dingwall, and has good rail, road and bus services.
