Unique Opportunity to acquire a Smallholding including 2 Semi-Detached Properties with their respective Garden Grounds, Croft Land & Steading


Description - Unique opportunity to acquire a small holding with good income and development potential.

The property comprises two semi-detached villas, each with scope for expansion, their respective garden grounds and croft land with large stone steading with obvious development potential. Ravenscross is a 2/3 bedroom semi-detached cottage appreciating an open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room with large Morso multi-fuel stove. There are two good sized bedrooms on the first floor and a room on the ground floor which could be used as an office/utility or single bedroom. 77b Clashnagrave is currently set out as a one bedroom semi-detached cottage, but internally still requires to be completed and has the potential for a further two bedrooms upstairs. The two properties have garden ground to front and rear and come complete with approximately 1.48 acres of croft land with large stone steading. The steading has in the past been used to hold animals and is currently used for storage but has good potential (subject to local authority consent) for development.

Ideal for someone who may wish to live in one property and let the other and in time develop the steading to provide further
income, this property has superb scope. Alternatively the two semis could be combined into one property if preferred. The
possibilities are endless with this portfolio.

Location - The properties appreciate a quiet rural position some 4 miles north of the Royal Burgh of Dornoch, a place of great historic interest with Dornoch Cathedral (founded in 1224), the court house (built 1850) and the old jail (now an up-market gift shop). Local services are plentiful and include several hotels, tea rooms, antique shops, bank and general stores. The primary school is adjacent to the secondary school and both are highly regarded. Dornoch has a sandy beach and 18 hole Championship Golf Course and there are many other activities on offer including football, bowling, horse riding, squash, tennis and table tennis. The exclusive Skibo Castle sits just outside Dornoch, is set in some 7000 acres and is home to the Carnegie Golf and Country Club. Dornoch is nestled between the Dornoch Firth and Loch Fleet nature reserve, a haven for birds and wildlife. There are forest walks available and the Sutherland Hills are a short drive for those wanting more of a challenge. Loch Lannsaidh is within easy reach and is stocked with wild brown trout for the avid fisherman with loch Laoigh also available further north.
