Spacious three-bedroom terrace; walk-in condition, ideal first home
Less than one kilometre from the centre of the popular town of Invergordon and just a short distance from the Cromarty Firth, this tidy three-bedroom house is in a peaceful location that also benefits from being close to road links, transport and services.
Its walk-in condition and tidy decor offer somewhere ready-made for someone seeking a home to move into as quickly as possible, with only minimal amounts of work needed to create a good quality modern-looking property.
Developed in 1962, Queen Street is a quiet, neatly presented road of attractive, white-washed terraced houses. Number 44 has a block paved driveway for off-street parking and a gravel and flagstone timber fenced front garden.
A small vestibule and hallway open into a tidy living room with a south-facing outlook and good natural light. The feature wall is finished in a striking navy-blue paper, with a slate grey surround for the gas fire, lending some distinction and drama to the space. A small cupboard is in one corner, and the space feels spacious due to its pleasant shape and clean surfaces.
The kitchen is L-shaped and finished with grey and white wall coverings. Fitted with basic cabinets and worksurface, space has been left for appliances to create a new workable environment at minimal effort and expense. This also makes it an easy area to modernise and refit cost-effectively and quickly if preferred. The adjacent rear vestibule offers additional space for storage and access to the garden.
Carpeted stairs open onto a small landing, giving access to three good-sized bedrooms. These rooms are all in a tidy condition and fitted with grey carpet. Natural finished joinery and light-coloured walls match the rest of the property, creating a good canvas for new ideas. The principal bedroom has a built-in cupboard, and the two smaller rooms are ideal for children, remote working, or hobby spaces.
The shower room is finished with white tiles and has a WC, wash-hand basin and bath with an electric shower over it.
The timber-fenced garden is laid with paving stones and has an outdoor tap and a glass-fronted outbuilding.
Enjoying a Council Tax Band of B and a floor area of 83m2, this is a delightful, economical, spacious house. Its generous layouts, clean rooms and tidy presentation make it a fabulous property to step into quickly and it will be an ideal first home for a new or growing family.
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.
