Fabulous pied-a-terre in historic village ideal as a second home or holiday let

This delightfully quirky stone cottage is on a quiet mews-type terrace just off Tain High Street. With a discreet one-way road only accessible from a side street, permit parking for residents, and enclosed by larger cottages, this location is wonderfully convenient for the town centre while slightly off the beaten track.

Constructed at the very end of the Victorian era, 5 Ross Street is a charming little house that is typical for its age and location. These properties are much sought after, and their compactness and affordability make them wonderful first homes for those stepping onto the housing ladder. Equally, they are ideal leisure homes or have useful investment potential as holiday lettings, especially in a pretty conservation area, as this house is.

The interior of the ground floor is open plan, but protected from the weather at the front entrance by a small vestibule. A white-painted staircase wraps around the kitchen, creating an elegantly contained space. With white gloss cabinets and a dark work surface, the kitchen offers a contemporary and functional backdrop to the living area with ample space for relaxing, AV equipment, and dining.

The ground floor is already very useable, but the potential remains to upgrade it to a stunning, minimalist contemporary interior that could grace any design magazine. The chance to create such living spaces is especially attractive given that the environs around Tain continue to grow into a desirable and noteworthy area of Northern Scotland.

A lovely light-filled dog leg staircase leads upstairs to two large bedrooms, each offering enough space to fit a small seating area, offering not just somewhere to rest but also escape.

The first floor is completed with a shower room with white sanitaryware and a deep window.

5 Ross Street really is a wonderful property; as with any house of this age, it will require some maintenance, but for the new owner who is willing to embrace these aspects, the opportunity is there to create a stunning, unusual little hideaway, either as a first home for a couple or somewhere to escape the rest of the world.

About Tain

Overlooking the beautiful Dornoch Firth, Tain is a Royal Burgh with its routes going back to before 1066.

Located on the Fearn Peninsula – which is said to have its own climate, including being in an area with the lowest rainfall in the UK – Tain enjoys the benefits of spectacular environs, with the practicalities of being within commuting distance of Inverness and Dingwall to the South. The West Coast and the far North of Scotland can be reached within 90 minutes, ideal for major tourism routes such as the NC500 and the area’s numerous wildlife, sporting, and historic locations.

The centre of Tain itself is bustling and has many long-established independent shops, together with major supermarkets. The town has a strong community and a great sense of pride.

Tain is 35 miles from Inverness and 23 miles from Dingwall. A good medical centre and several primary schools are nearby; older pupils attend the renowned Tain Royal Academy. Finally, many important tourist attractions nearby include world-class golf courses, distilleries, and pristine wild environments.
