Tenure: Freehold

Jubilee Cottage is an outstanding traditional property thought to date back to around 1910, which has been lovingly extended and upgraded. This is a property truly at one with its surroundings occupying an outstanding position overlooking the Moray Firth in the heart of the charming coastal village of Rosemarkie. The local area is famed for its wildlife and for being one of the best spots in the UK for viewing bottlenose dolphins.

The property occupies a sought after location in close proximity to the beach, golf course and other local amenities. Its clever design has created both a bright and airy feel with light penetrating into the main living spaces whilst providing spacious, flexible accommodation.

Access to the property is via a private single track which leads to a parking area and detached garage. As you enter the rear garden, which leads to the entrance of the property, you immediately appreciate the surroundings with the noise of the waves crashing in on the beach below and beautiful, ever changing views of the coast and beyond. Entrance is via the hallway which leads to a beautifully appointed sitting room. A combination of large windows front and rear, as well as velux windows effectively bring the outside inside. With its high ceilings, wood burning stove and views, this is the perfect room to relax and enjoy the local area, which is famed for its wildlife and for being one of the best spots in the UK for viewing bottlenose dolphins. The large open plan kitchen/dining area is beautifully presented and has a range of wall and base storage units, wine cooler, American style fridge freezer, Bosch integrated appliances and breakfast bar. There is ample space for a dining table and chairs and doors giving direct access the gardens. The rear porch leads to a walk in utility/storage area. The master bedroom has lovely views and a modern en-suite complete with large walk in shower, floor tiles, wc, and wash hand basin. There are a further two bedrooms and a family bathroom which has a "P" shaped bath with shower over, wc, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.

A hatch from the dining area leads to a staircase taking you down to the basement which is currently used as a gym and for storage but provides excellent development potential, subject the appropriate planning. Measuring approx. 16ft x 25ft, the basement originally served as an ice house, the remnants of the once thriving salmon fishing industry in the area.
