It is within commuting distance of Inverness and Dingwall and major employers.

With an interior space of 111 m2 and located in a welcoming community, the property also benefits from an excellent valuation, making it an ideal home for a first-time buyer.

Constructed in 1900, the house has many original features, including deep-set windows and beamed ceilings. Accessed from a large gravelled driveway with ample parking, the house opens from a timber-clad porch into a white-painted hallway.

The living room is generously sized and painted in pale green and grey. It has deep alcoves and a pair of large windows that overlook the garden. The room also features a number of wooden ceiling beams.

The dining kitchen is fabulously appointed, with a long double galley arrangement of grey fronted wall and floor cabinets topped with a marble style work surface; the sink is below a pretty window set back slightly from the main work area, creating a charming point of interest. The long lines of the kitchen lead to a neatly contained dining area at the rear of the room, whch offers an attractive view of the garden.

The cloakroom is well decorated with striking black-and-white patterned tiles. It has a WC and a grey vanity with an inset wash hand basin. This room also serves as a utility space, with plumbing for laundry appliances.

The ground floor accommodation is completed with a bedroom that could equally serve as a study or home office.

A carpeted staircase leads to the first floor and three bedrooms. The principal bedroom is decorated in a warm pastel colour and has a large skylight on the coombed side, filling the space with plentiful natural light from the west. A small in-built cupboard is finished with a white tongue-and-groove door.

The second bedroom is painted in a pastel hue and has a built-in wardrobe. The room overlooks the garden and has a charming interior letterbox window high on the wall. The third bedroom faces west and has a large skylight. A small internal cupboard is set halfway up the wall, creating an interesting feature.

The bathroom is large, light-filled, and cheerfully decorated with sunny yellow walls and grey panels around the bath. There is a glass-enclosed shower unit, WC and pedestal wash hand basin.

The timber-fenced split-level garden has a white-painted steel gate to the front and is laid with gravel in the lower section. A shed is on one side, providing practical storage. Stone steps lead to the upper level and give access to the oil tank. This part of the garden is set with paving slabs and a lawn, and herbaceous borders and shrubs add additional charm and interest.
Fuaran is a charming and well-presented family home with many traditional features. Combined with its fabulous location and excellent value, it offers a fantastic property for a family looking for their first step onto the property ladder.
