Delightful three-bedroom ground-floor flat in historic building; first home potential
Located less than one kilometre’s walk from the centre of Dingwall, this interesting apartment is part of an early 20th Century former distillery. Enjoying an elevated position, it is close to nature reserves but within commuting distance of Inverness. Together with an interior space of 80 m2 and a cost-effective valuation, Flat 4 makes an attractive first purchase or investment for someone willing to undertake a little remedial work.
The flat is accessed from the rear of the Old Distillery, making it convenient for the residents’ parking area. After entering the communal lobby, the flat opens into a spacious hallway, which, along with the rest of the property, has been painted white, ready for the new owner to add their decorative touches.
Retaining a sense of the original building, the living room features an intriguing alcove separated by a large ceiling joist, creating the potential for a slightly offset open-plan workspace or small dining space, especially being so close to the kitchen. This is complemented on the opposite side of the room by a deep-set window with a south-facing view of the River Conon, making it an ideal place for an upholstered window seat.
The kitchen is generously sized and fitted with wooden fronted wall and floor cabinets and a laminated worktop. It currently has an L-shaped arrangement, but featuring a deep window with a great view and enjoying a high ceiling and a good amount of space, it has the potential to remodel as a stunning contemporary kitchen if preferred.
The three bedrooms are to the rear of the Distillery and are similarly sized; each is fitted with built-in wardrobes and features delightful, deep window ledges, offering scope to create charmingly decorated bedrooms or to use one or more as a dedicated workspace if preferred.
The bathroom is simply decorated with white waterproof panels and white sanitaryware, including a bath with a shower over.
The communal areas are welcoming, and several outdoor spaces are laid with lawns and gravel.
The Old Distillery is a fabulous historic building that enjoys a boastful location. With careful design touches and decorative flair, Flat 4 offers a huge opportunity to create a stunning contemporary home suitable for a small family or a couple, especially first-time buyer
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, making the centre an enjoyable place to visit by 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.
