Semi-detached three-bedroom house with potential as an attractive family home

This comfortable house is close to open fields and within a short distance of the town centre and the main route to Inverness and Dingwall, offering a convenient location for commuting and enjoying the open spaces and natural environment that is easily accessible from Alness.

Constructed in approximately 1980, 53 Salvasen Crescent is reasonably well-maintained for its age, yet offers the benefits of being perfect for modernisation and upgrading should the new owner choose this. At 86 m2 interior accommodation, the property is in keeping with the neighbouring houses, but its position at the corner of the row of semi-detached homes means it is close to the residents’ parking area and enjoys a quieter, more open situation.

The exterior and interior woodwork has been painted in a fashionable dark blue in recent years, lending the property a jaunty naval air in keeping with this part of Scotland’s connection with the North Coast. The living accommodation is generous, evident when entering the property from the front garden.

A tidy double-aspect living room overlooks the front and rear gardens, ensuring that light is captured through the ground floor of the house. Featuring a mantelpiece with a gas fire, the room has good potential as a comfortable space for relaxing.

With access to the garden, the dining kitchen is modestly designed but more than serviceable offering the new owner the chance to renovate the space in their own time and budget should they choose to do so. A built-in cupboard and a range of floor and wall cabinets offer practical storage space.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms which offer views of the surrounding area. Two of the rooms have a small built-in cupboard, but all the bedrooms are substantial enough for a good range of furnishing.

The shower room is decorated in grey and blue and features a spacious walk-in shower and vanity unit.

Outside, the garden has a wooden shed and is timber fenced all around. The ground is currently laid with some paving slabs and areas of bare earth which can be seeded with lawn or laid with a hard surface; as with much of the property, this is very much a clean slate design-wise, offering much creative potential for the owner to bring their own aesthetic to what is a potentially attractive home for a growing family.

About Alness

Alness is a town in the Highland Council area of Scotland and is situated on the beautiful Cromarty Firth. With a population of around 5,000 people and 46 km north of Inverness and just 16 km south of Dingwall, this small settlement is a popular commuting town and a strong community, giving the best of both worlds.

The town is also home to several shops, restaurants, and pubs. It is a popular tourist destination, with attractions such as the Black Isle, the Fearn Peninsula, and some magnificent HIghland landscapes on the doorstep. With a strong agricultural focus and an emerging entrerpreunrial spirit, Alness has a fabulous blend of the old and the new. Given its strong community and relative ease of commuting, it is a delightful area for anyone considering moving to Scotland from elsewhere.

Alness has its own railway station on the Far North Line, and a bus service connects Alness with Inverness, Dingwall, and nearby towns. The A9 is less than a mile away and connects the town with Falkirk to Thurso in the far north of Scotland, and Inverness Airport is just a 40-minute drive away.

The town has a primary and a secondary school, several supermarkets, health care facilities and Alness Primary School and Alness Academy. There is also a doctor’s surgery, leisure centre and swimming pool.
