Full description

Yvonne Fitzgerald and RE/MAX Premier are delighted to present to the market this lovingly restored Victorian family home.
This property is now £25000 under Home Report valuation.

Dating back to the early 1800's, this traditionally built stone property has a slate roof, and was originally formerly used as the school masters house and a coaching inn.

With several period features such as oak beams, original pitch pine doors and high ceilings, this property is sure to appeal to anyone looking for a home with an income.
Planning was previously granted for a building plot and this could quite easily be reinstated, giving the new owner another income stream, either to build their own property, or to use it as an annex to the existing house.

If the planning was reinstated, the plot in itself would be worth £30,000, giving the new owner instant equity of £55,000.

The property ,which has extensive accommodation over 2 floors would make a brilliant bed and breakfast as it boasts spacious family living over two floors.
This detached villa also sits in an extensive garden plot of one acre and has off road parking for a number of vehicles.

Given the fact it has also still got a working commercial kitchen, and the extensive regeneration that is happening in the second most northerly town of Wick, it also gives the new owners the choice as to whether to run this extensive home as a commercial business or large family home.

This detached villa consists of, lounge, kitchen/diner, family room, two shower rooms, study and five double bedrooms, two of which are en suite and a separate well equipped commercial kitchen.
The property benefits from oil central heating, UPVC windows, and the added extra of having an open fire in the family room, with electric and gas fireplaces in both the kitchen / diner and lounge.

Panoramic views of the beautiful countryside and wildlife can be found in this quiet, secluded area.

Bower House is located in the small village of Bower. Bower, which has its own primary school, Bower is only eight miles from the town of Thurso and eleven miles from the town of Wick which is currently undergoing massive regeneration and development.
In Wick, there is the John O'Groats Airport with retail parks and various other amenities. The property is also near to bus routes, giving access to both main towns in Caithness as well as links to other areas throughout the Highlands.
