Tenure: Freehold

The original property is believed to date back to the 1860's and was the stable block for the adjacent manor house. In more recent times it has been sensitively renovated and extended and now provides very flexible, bright and airy accommodation arranged over two levels. The property is located close to Rosemarkie Beach and is within close proximity of all the local amenities including the beach itself, golf course, shops and school.

None of the original charm has been lost and the property has retained many period features which combine with the modern additions such as replacement windows, oil-fired central heating system, stylish kitchen and bathroom. This is a unique home in a wonderful setting which impresses immediately with its striking looks, crow step gables and slate roof.

The property is accessed via a stone chipped driveway which leads to the front of the house. Entry to the house is via the large sun room which overlooks the colourful garden grounds and leads into the hallway. There is a cloakroom, study and TV Room. The family room /5th bedroom comes with a hardwood floor, fireplace and inset open fire. The spacious dining kitchen has a good selection of wall and base storage units and a variety of integrated appliances which include Neff hob, oven, microwave and hood. Doors from the kitchen open up into the sun room making it great for entertaining whilst attracting an abundance of natural light. The large sitting room is a lovely room to relax and unwind and has a panelled ceiling, four large windows, ceiling coving and a wood burning stove. The utility room is accessed off the courtyard area and has ample storage and space for white goods.

A carpeted staircase leads to the upper level where there are two large storage cupboards at the top of the stairs and a further walk in storage/linen cupboard. The Master bedroom is extremely inviting, a bright room with a lovely outlook over the gardens and partial views of the Moray Firth and coastline. It has an en suite shower room which comes with a walk in shower, WC, wash hand basin, wood panelling and heated towel rail. There are an additional 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom with bath, shower, WC and wash hand basin.

Located on the outskirts of Rosemarkie, a popular and thriving historical village on the southern coast of the Black Isle, the property enjoys a particularly quiet spot located off a private road. Locally there are a range of shops including a small supermarket, butcher, bakery, pharmacy, post office, bank, garage, leisure centre, library and various hotels, pubs and restaurants. Local amenities include a sailing club at Fortrose Harbour and a golf course on a promontory into the Moray Firth between Rosemarkie and Fortrose called Chanonry Point. Chanonry Point is also a popular location for dolphin watching. There is a primary school in nearby Avoch and a highly regarded secondary school in Fortrose. The area has a wide variety of historical sites and museums including Groam House and the Cromarty Courthouse. There are a large number of beach and woodland walks, and it is possible to see a wide variety of wildlife. For the sports enthusiast, there is a wide range of shooting, stalking and fishing available locally.

The A832 provides good access to Inverness where you can join the A9 which is the main highway north and south. Inverness has an extensive range of shopping, leisure, cultural and educational facilities as would be expected from the capital of the Highlands. Inverness Airport provides regular flights to London and beyond. There is a mainline railway station at Inverness which has a sleeper service to the south.

The Old Stables is set in well established, mature garden grounds which are mainly laid to lawn and interspersed with an array of specimen trees, plants and shrubs. There is a small stream, a courtyard area and a store. There is ample parking for several vehicles at the property.
