Description

Within walking distance of the centre of Dingwall, this delightful ground-floor apartment is part of a converted distillery. Originally built in 1900 and with far-reaching views across the River Conon, the property has an enviable position with easy access to the countryside, but it is also close to major services and commutable to Inverness.

Offer 62 m2 interior space in walk-in condition, a fabulous valuation, and potentially economical running costs, including a low Council Tax band, will make 1 Old Distillery very attractive to first-time buyers.

The building has a residents’ parking area, and the apartment is accessed from steps leading into a communal entrance hall; visitors are admitted to the apartment by an entry phone system. Once inside, the apartment opens into a spacious hallway decorated in a light neutral colour scheme, with hard flooring and a large built-in cupboard offering practical storage.

The living room has double-aspect windows, including a charming bay window that is glazed on each side. This gives fabulous south-facing views of the River Conon and offers an ideal location for seating. The room is spacious, and a dropped beam creates a natural demarcation of the space for a dining or desk area.

The kitchen is finished to a high standard and is generously sized, and a deep window provides a lot of natural light. The kitchen has immaculate-looking glossy white wall and floor cabinets, with a pristine wooden worktop and matching splashback arranged in an L-shape to create plenty of room for large appliances.

The two bedrooms are carpeted and decorated in neutral colours with naturally finished joinery. The principal bedroom has a built-in wardrobe with wooden doors. Each of the bedrooms has deep windows with wooden sills.

The bathroom has flecked waterproof panels and white sanitaryware, including a bath with a shower over, a WC, a pedestal wash hand basin and a ladder towel rail.

The external communal areas are cheerful and provide a sense of community within the building; much of the outdoor space is laid with gravel and grass.

The Old Distillery is a well-known landmark and plays an important role in Dingwall’s history. Its desirable location and proximity to the town centre make it an excellent property for a couple or individual, especially if they are looking to make their first step on the property ladder.

With its walk-in condition, great valuation, and potentially low running costs and energy footprint, Apartment 1 offers scope as a beautiful contemporary home, and early viewing is suggested.

About Dingwall

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, with a population of about 5,500, has a lively High Street that benefits from many independent shops, cafes, and businesses. This makes the centre an enjoyable place to visit for both locals and visitors. There are also many cultural attractions, including 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 attractive countryside and across the Moray Firth via the Kessock Bridge makes the commute to Inverness both easily accessible and enjoyable. Alternatively, there are frequent trains and buses to the City, nearby Invergordon and to the North.

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.
