Well Proportioned 5 Bedroom Detached Bungalow with B and B Potential set in Large Garden Grounds extending to Approx. 1.75 Acres

Description - In good order throughout, Brelona is a spacious detached bungalow set in 1.75 acres of garden ground with superb potential for use as a bed and breakfast as most bedrooms appreciate en-suite bath or shower rooms (has been used successfully for bed and breakfast in the past). The lounge is well proportioned with wide bay window overlooking the garden and marble open fireplace providing an attractive focal point. The kitchen offers ample room for table and chairs with separate dining room providing for more formal occasions. The sun lounge, set to the side, is a superb room for relaxing in with windows looking out over the garden and beyond to surrounding countryside. Benefiting from oil fired central heating and double glazing, the property comes complete with an integrated double garage and outbuildings. This is a comfortable family home with excellent B and B potential.

Location - Brelona is some 3 miles or so south 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 and Loch Laoigh are within a short drive north for the avid fisherman.
