Rosenberg is the former Estate Factor's house for the Cromarty Estate and was built circa 1850. Of red sandstone construction under a slate roof, the property is beautifully positioned on the edge of the delightful Black Isle village of Cromarty and enjoys stunning views of the Cromarty Firth and beyond.
The property has been cleverly designed to take full advantage of the position and most of the rooms have double aspect windows which maximise the light and sunshine.
The accommodation is entered via the southfacing front porch/sun room where one can enjoy the sunshine and pleasant views over the gardens. This leads to the entrance hallway and to the two main front facing public rooms. The sitting room is of generous proportions and features include open fire with Westmorland slate surround, hearth and working window shutters. The formal dining room is the perfect size for entertaining guests and has ample space for a large table and chairs as well as an open fire, brick fireplace and wall shelved cupboard. An open archway leads to the inner hall where the home office/study is located. Opposite this is a large playroom. Both of these rooms are extremely flexible and could easily be utilised as bedrooms if required. The rear hallway leads to under stair storage and a cloakroom/WC. The dining kitchen is fitted with pine units and a stainless steel sink and ceramic hob and there is a large utility room with two porcelain sinks and hardwood drainers located off.

The master bedroom is a bright and spacious room with double aspect windows, views and comes with wardrobes, hanging rails and shelving. The bathroom has a bath with shower/mixer attachment, Heritage wash hand basin and WC.
