Detached four-bedroom house in a popular coastal village
Constructed in 2016, this seven-year-old property is in immaculate condition and well-located on the outskirts of Fortrose, one of the Black Isle’s most desirable villages.
This lovely property, with its relaxed garden and well-laid-out interior, will make a wonderful family home close to both the renowned Fortrose Academy and the Moray Firth.
Enjoying a corner location, 11 Cornwell Crescent gets sunlight from the southwest and has views across the neighbouring houses to the coast and hills beyond.
The house’s exterior is clean and simple, reflected in the refined decor upon entering. The entrance is welcoming and tidy, with a tiled floor, which continues into the kitchen-dining area, and a neutral colour scheme.
A well-proportioned living room has a window overlooking the front of the house and plenty of room for furnishings. The soft green decor offsets the light and creates a friendly, welcoming space.
A small azure-painted cloakroom is conveniently located next to the kitchen and is fitted with a WC and hand basin.
The open plan kitchen / dining-room is well arranged with cheerful yellow walls, white cabinet fronts, and stainless-steel appliances and trim. The dining-area has double-glazed patio doors which open onto the garden.
The downstairs decor is light, playful, and offset by glazed internal doors and white woodwork.
A carpeted staircase leads to the first floor, decorated in soft colours and white woodwork. There are four bedrooms, of which the two smaller rooms are comfortable; one is currently used as an office, but either of these would be suitable for this use. A larger double room has a double built-in mirrored wardrobe and space for occasional furniture. The main bedroom is spacious and also has a mirrored wardrobe.
A shower room with a WC and wash hand basin is next to the main bedroom, and there is also a family bathroom with a bath with a mixer shower over, WC and hand basin.
The garden, accessed through the kitchen-diner, has a well-laid area of lawn, a patio, raised beds, and an outdoor store. A gate leads to a tarmac driveway to the side of the house.
With an Energy Efficiency Rating of Band C, ease of access to Inverness and Dingwall, and proximity to local services, 11 Cornwell Crescent would make a lovely family home.
At only six miles from Inverness, and on the Moray Firth shore, Fortrose is one of the most desirable locations in Northern Scotland. On the south coast of the world-famous Black Isle, the waters around Fortrose are home to pods of the largest bottlenose dolphins in Europe.
With a High Street made up of many Victorian sandstone and whitewashed properties, the area retains a quaint Highland feel, little changed since it was first constructed. The lovely buildings, comparatively mild weather, beautiful nearby beaches, and attractive countryside also makes Fortrose popular with visitors.
There is a strong sense of neighbourliness in Fortrose, and residents are very an active part of the town, from supporting its own Community Council, rowing and sailing clubs, golf course, market and community events,
The area is surrounded by important historic sites, including a 13th Century Cathedral, and is near to many Pictish sites.
Agriculture, tourism, and freelance working are important types of employment on the Black Isle, but its proximity to Inverness, and other nearby commercial and industrial centres makes it a perfect commuting location.
There is a doctor’s surgery in Fortrose, as well as the esteemed Fortrose Academy. Local shops and convenience stores are in the High Street, and larger supermarkets and major transport links are within a few miles’ drive at Invergordon, Dingwall and Inverness. Buses run regularly from Fortrose into Inverness and Dingwall, and Inverness Airport is only 19 miles away.
