Description

This spacious three-bedroom house is close to the centre of the historic town of Dornoch and less than one kilometre from its renowned beach. It is in a peaceful location that backs onto woodland.

Bishopsfield Road is a quiet residential road of mixed housing just moments from the world-famous Dornoch Cathedral. Number 13 has a tarmac drive leading to a timber garage and an open front garden with a lawn. A fully glazed vestibule gives access to the house.

Constructed in 1970, the property has a generous interior space of 91 m2 and has been decorated in a variety of styles throughout. Joinery is painted white, and natural timber doors create a clean and modern look.

A small hallway opens into a nicely sized carpeted living room. This room faces southwest, and the large window provides generous natural light. The room is partly decorated with wallpaper, and the feature wall is finished in white with grey alcoves. A slate hearth and deep fireplace house a wood-burning stove.

The kitchen dining room is fitted with tidy wooden-fronted wall and floor cabinets and a grey worktop in a U-shape arrangement. The walls are finished with natural grey tiles, and white and grey painted walls accentuate the kitchen’s generous size.

Beyond the breakfast bar lies a large dining area; this leads into an open-plan space that serves as a sunroom, with provision at one end for a utility area. This is an appealing layout, and the generously sized combination of kitchen, dining area, and sunroom offers much scope for a beautifully designed open plan cooking, eating and seating area. The proximity to the garden further lends this potential as an attractive focal point of the house.

A staircase leads to the small landing with a stripped wooden floor that provides access to three well-sized bedrooms. These rooms are all carpeted and have an element of internal storage. Each is decorated in vivid colours, and the pleasant shapes offer the new owner potential to recreate attractive, light-filled spaces that suit their aesthetic.

The bath room is finished with white tiles and is painted a striking turquoise with grey tiles. It has a WC, wash-hand basin, and bath with a shower over it.

The garden is laid with grass and is enclosed with fencing and a hedge on two sides; the rear rises to provide a view of the woodland beyond. Paving stones create a small patio and lead to the rear of the garage.

This is an attractive and spacious property with generous space. With some decoration, care, and modernisation, it offers enormous potential as a comfortable home for a young family and is ideal for a first-time buyer.

About Dornoch

Dornoch is a former Royal Burgh and is the county town of Sutherland. About 45 miles from Inverness and ten miles from Golspie, it is located on the north shore of the Dornoch Firth in a serene and picturesque setting close to an outstanding beach. The town is well-connected by road and rail, with excellent links to the south and north. A small airstrip is nearby.

The town has a vibrant and close-knit community with a long history of over a thousand years. Dornoch Cathedral was founded in 1222 and is still in use today. Dornoch has many excellent attractions for locals and visitors, including award-winning hotels and restaurants, the world-class Royal Dornoch Golf Club, and several excellent distilleries nearby. The area is further enhanced by outstanding natural scenery, including lochs, beaches, forests and mountains nearby.

Fishing, walking, and sailing are also popular, with the pristine coastline providing a dramatic backdrop. Dolphins, whales, diverse bird species, and the aurora borealis are also frequently seen.

Many essential services are available in the town, including medical and dental practices, libraries, leisure facilities, and a primary and a secondary school. Several small supermarkets and stores are available in town, and larger shops are available in nearby Tain and Golspie.

With historic charm, a vibrant community, and a wealth of outdoor activities close by, Dornoch is a desirable location for locals and visitors.
