Spacious coastal cottage close to Cromarty Firth, full of traditional features

Boasting a spectacular location which includes the coast, woodland, and fields, Rose Cottage is situated in the beautiful hamlet of Barbaraville, close to Invergordon.

This delightful property is a fabulous example of a traditional coastal home but benefits from being just set back far enough to benefit from a position that is sheltered from the weather.
Built in 1900, Rose Cottage has all the features one would expect with a property of this age: slate roof, coombed ceilings, thick exterior walls, and wood burning stove. Inside, the aesthetic is contemporary but relaxed, retaining the natural finishes and a soft colour palette that emphasises the sense of warmth and light.

The entrance hall is dominated by a strikingly finished staircase, which echoes the wood used in the joinery throughout. The living room is very generous and features a wood-burning stove and open-plan access to the fabulously light-filled dining area, which gives access to the garden via French windows.

The U-shaped kitchen maximises the space with cabinets in a wood finish that creates a contemporary, airy feel. This is an attractive space that offers a great deal of room and is practical and elegant.

Upstairs, the principal bedroom has lovely views, and is large with has a generous built-in wardrobe and full-height ceiling.

The smaller bedroom features a built-in cupboard and a coombed ceiling, which is desirable in period properties. Despite being the second bedroom, it is extremely generous and offers plenty of scope for furnishings and different uses.

The family bathroom is a lovely example of a cottage bathroom, decorated in light colours and with a bath with shower over, a WC and a wash hand basin. There is a pretty, deep-set window above the bath.

Finally, the landing is a delightful space with wood-lined walls, balustrade, and deep display shelving, with practical storage space behind it.

Outside there is a large, enclosed garden laid with lawn and block paving. There is a patio area and ample room for off-road parking.

Rose Cottage is a beautiful property, and we expect it to be a popular addition to Hamish Homes’ portfolio. Couple that with its fabulous location while being close to services in Invergordon, Dingwall and Inverness, and being in one of the most desirable areas of Scotland, this property offers a wonderful opportunity as a home for a young family or a comfortable retreat for a retired couple.

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, an excellent leisure centre with swimming pools, a cycling track, and an extensive gym are all nearby. 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.
