Attractive four/five-bedroom detached house with space suitable for use as annexe
Located in a peaceful area away from the centre of Alness, but offering easy access to all the town’s services, this impressive house has been exceptionally well maintained since its construction in 2006. At 210 m2, this is a substantial property. It has been meticulously decorated, and its extensive rooms have been thoughtfully considered to maximise the living areas for a large family. The property also offers potential to accommodate extended family members in the separate annexed spaces.
Finished in natural woods with a pleasing neutral feeling palette, the hallway opens into a large living room. Its impressive stone mantelpiece and multi-fuel stove link to the hot water system, and serves as an appealing focal point. A pair of glazed doors leads to the kitchen dining room.
With many wooden fronted floor and wall cabinets arranged in a U-shape with extra preparation surface and storage, the expansive kitchen has a solid, elegant country-style ambience. Its brown and white tiled splash areas and range-style oven speak of comfort and relaxing with family making this a very appealing and comfortable space. The sense of gathering people together extends to the generous dining area, which includes patio doors that open into the large garden. A separate utility room is adjacent to the kitchen and is comparatively proportioned.
A ground floor bedroom has a built-in wardrobe, and reflecting the style of the house, is finished in natural wood joinery. This generously sized room offers potential use as a bedroom or a substantial home office, especially for a remote worker or, subject to regulatory conditions, as space for a small business.
The ground floor also includes a family bathroom, which is spacious. The sanitaryware is generous, with a large shower bath, WC and wash hand basin in a contemporary style. There remains considerable space to increase this, for example adding a walk-in shower enclosure and bidet if required.
A timber staircase leads to the bedrooms, en-suites, and family shower room. These bedrooms are attractive and well-decorated; each room is spacious with charming shapes and coombed ceilings. The en-suite and family shower rooms are finished with good-quality sanitaryware, including walk-in shower enclosures, WCs and wash-hand basins. These rooms benefit from generous natural light.
A large annexe with an up-and-over door has hard flooring and is completed with a separate L-shaped kitchen area, tidily finished with tiles and white-fronted cabinets and drawers. From the annexe, a timber staircase leads to an ensuite bedroom. This room is charming and has an attractive coombed ceiling and contemporary floral wallpaper. Its en-suite shower room has a skylight, WC, wash hand basin, and shower enclosure; it is well-provided with natural light, accentuating its generous size.
Subject to suitable permissions, the annexe offers enormous potential as separate living accommodation for extended family or guest accommodation with a private entrance offering convenience and privacy.
The utility room opens onto a practical yard enclosed in timber fencing with gravel and attractive winding paving. A gate opens onto the garden itself, which has lawn areas, some of which are fenced, and timber structures for relaxing and storage.
3 Fyrish View is a remarkable property that yields many opportunities. Its excellent location and substantial accommodation offer a fabulous home for a large, and possibly extended family, and early viewing is advised.
Alness is a town in the Highland Council area of Scotland and is situated on the beautiful Cromarty Firth. With a population of around 5,000 people and 46 km north of Inverness and just 16 km south of Dingwall, this small settlement is a popular commuting town and a strong community, giving the best of both worlds.
The town is also home to several shops, restaurants, and pubs. It is a popular tourist destination, with attractions such as the Black Isle, the Fearn Peninsula, and some magnificent HIghland landscapes on the doorstep. With a strong agricultural focus and an emerging entrerpreunrial spirit, Alness has a fabulous blend of the old and the new. Given its strong community and relative ease of commuting, it is a delightful area for anyone considering moving to Scotland from elsewhere.
Alness has its own railway station on the Far North Line, and a bus service connects Alness with Inverness, Dingwall, and nearby towns. The A9 is less than a mile away and connects the town with Falkirk to Thurso in the far north of Scotland, and Inverness Airport is just a 40-minute drive away.
The town has a primary and a secondary school, several supermarkets, health care facilities and Alness Primary School and Alness Academy. There is also a doctor’s surgery, leisure centre and swimming pool.
