Stunning contemporary ground-floor apartment with three bedrooms and courtyard
With a neat sandstone facia and a pretty timber-fenced front garden, No. 3 Caberfeidh Avenue is just a few moments’ walk from the centre of Dingwall. It is located in a quiet side street offering a peaceful but accessible location to all local services and major routes around the area.
Originally constructed in 1860, the building has been converted into six apartments over two storeys. No. 3 is a fabulous property on the ground floor and benefits from the private front and rear exterior spaces.
Its compact frontage only reveals how generous its interior is once entering. This is through a solid door into a fabulous grey-painted hallway lined to dado height with white tongue and groove panelling. This styling is used throughout the property, creating an elegant, cohesive interior with a wow factor and the potential to feature in homes and interior magazines.
The open plan kitchen-living room ends with a pair of glazed patio doors giving a view of the charming west-facing courtyard-style garden. The long dimensions of the living area create a space full of character with scope to arrange the room in small zones, providing compact but attractive areas that work well within the context of the property.
The outstanding kitchen has been well designed to make the most use of shape; lighting is generous, areas for appliances are recessed, and lines are simple. The white cabinets and mid-grey worktops are clean-edged and slightly glossy to emphasise the space, and the handles and trim are long to complement these. This is a well-thought-out and beautifully created kitchen and a key feature of this tasteful property conversion .
There are three bedrooms, which, although decorated in the same elegant colour palette and style, are all unique. The two closest to the front door are delightful: one has a neatly constructed shelved alcove and panelling; the other has a small cupboard with a wooden door. They both have slightly recessed windows that overlook the front garden. Either of these would provide suitable spaces for home offices or workspaces.
The third is at the rear of the property and overlooks the garden; it is panelled all around and benefits from a charming deep-set window.
The panelled shower room is equally well designed and features a walk-in shower enclosure tiled in grey, and a contemporary WC and wash-hand basin.
An open-plan garden is accessed from the living room and has been well-designed to create an elegant courtyard style patio; a generously sized timber shed has been finished in light grey to complement the rest of the property.
At 65m2, this is an enchanting property that has been impressively converted to lend a feel of spaciousness. With its beautiful aesthetics, attention to detail and retention of traditional features, it offers much potential as a smart pied-a-terre for a single person or couple, or as a comfortable small family home. Early viewing is advised.
Located just 15 miles from the City of Inverness, Dingwall is a bustling market town that still retains many of the beautiful stone buildings that were a sign of its status during the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.
This well-maintained town, with a population of about 5,500, has a lively High Street that benefits from many independent shops, cafes and businesses, making the centre an enjoyable place to visit by both locals and visitors. There are also many cultural attractions, including a well-respected museum, castles, and monuments nearby.
With the A9 bypassing the town, Dingwall is just far enough from the main routes to be still considered quiet but not so distant that it feels inaccessible. An easy 25-minute car journey through attractive countryside and across the Moray Firth via the Kessock Bridge makes the commute to Inverness both easily accessible and enjoyable. Alternatively, there are frequent trains and buses to the City, nearby Invergordon and to the North.
Dingwall has one secondary school, Dingwall Academy, and one primary school. There is a medical centre, dentists, and a leisure centre with a swimming pool and gym. There are several places of worship, supermarkets, and independent food stores.
The area has extensive outdoor pursuits, with world-class golf, fishing, walking, and sailing nearby. The NC500 is close to Dingwall, and many historic villages, castles and monuments are within a short driving distance.
