Spacious three-bedroom family home with pleasant interior; fabulous first property
This lovely semi-detached house offers an ideal home for a young family, particularly if this is their first step onto the property ladder. Spacious, nicely finished in taupes and neutrals, and displaying clean-lined wooden trim and doors, 23 Salvesen Cresent offers plenty of opportunity as a walk-in property but has scope for decorative modernisation.
Constructed in 1970, the house is well-built, and with an interior space of 88 m2, the rooms are generously proportioned and well-designed. The property, with its tidy front garden fenced with timber and laid with grass, gives access to a pleasant and welcoming hallway. There is parking to the rear of the property, and a small gate opens from the parking area into the back garden.
The living room faces south, and has windows to both the front and rear of the property, making it well provided with natural light. It is long enough to include various areas of seating or even a desk space for working from home if required. Painted in taupes with a matching carpet, the room is comfortable and relaxed with a mantelpiece, gas fire and alcoves that lend shape and character.
Laid out to make the most of the space, the kitchen has ample room for dining furniture and offers a simply designed working area with wall and floor cabinets in a wood-style finish. The walls around the worksurfaces are tiled in white, and a cupboard below the stairs can be used for storage or as a utility area subject to plumbing and ventilation.
A white staircase leads to a small landing, the shower room and the property’s three bedrooms that benefit from good height ceilings and plenty of natural light. The principal bedroom is very generous and currently decorated in pink, offering a cosy space that overlooks the front of the house. This room has a built-in cupboard, but the room’s size allows plenty of space for other clothes storage and dressing areas, too.
The second bedroom overlooks the rear garden and is painted pink with white walls facing the window. This room also has a good amount of space and a large built-in wardrobe.
A third bedroom, decorated in blue-greys, faces the front of the house and gets a good amount of light. Although the smallest of the three rooms, the space is still reasonable, and it will make a good room for a young child, or use as a games room or study.
The shower room is in taupe colours and has a white WC, a wash hand basin, and a large walk-in shower enclosure.
A small garden is accessible from the kitchen. With a useful shed, and fenced with timber and a brick wall to the street side, the garden has potential to create as a pleasant outdoor seating area and patio. A gate leads to the street at the side of the property, and a further gate opens to the parking area directly behind the rear garden.
This lovely house is within walking distance of the centre of Alness and is easily commutable to Inverness and Dingwall. It is a nicely cared-for property, and although its interior has been well maintained, it will make a fabulous renovation project for a family looking to buy their first home.
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.
