Located on the corner of an ancient road, 44 High Street is a substantial solid stone house close to world class natural environments and the renowned Fortrose Academy.

Partly used as a village shop, the house was originally constructed in 1890 and is enclosed by a charming stone-walled garden. Sympathetic upgrading and renovation have resulted in a fabulous home with a massive 187 m2 of interior space set over three floors, making it perfect for a family.

The property is entered from its delightful courtyard garden, filled with trees, climbers and borders, and timber and stone structures. Areas of grass, flagstones, and gravel organise the spaces, creating pockets for patios, seating, and practical usage.

A large sunroom is laid with slate flags, creating a welcoming space that opens into a gorgeous living room with a navy-blue chimney breast that houses a delightful pop-bellied stove. Carpeting adds warmth and good proportions create generous amounts of space while retaining a sense of gathering and comfort. Contemporary with the house, six-over-six windows have been retained to overlook the sunroom.

The kitchen dining room is simply exceptional. Traditional, elegantly styled, and tastefully decorated, this space spans one end of the house and is whitewashed with a steel blue mantelpiece with a cylindrical black iron stove. A large hob, and a double butler sink sit on either side of the wide galley layout, which is fitted with white cabinetry and oiled wooden worktops and end panels.

The ground floor also has a large cloakroom with a WC and vessel basin accessible from the sunroom; this space also serves as a utility area.

Oatmeal carpeted stairs lead to a spacious landing and three bedrooms. The principal bedroom has an ultramarine blue gable wall that beautifully offset the white joinery and two deep windows overlooking the village. Its ensuite, tiled with white and light-filled, is fitted with a shower bath and traditional hand basin and WC.
The second bedroom, currently used as a maker's workshop, also has two deep windows and a built-in louvre-fronted cupboard. The third bedroom is charming, with a casement window that overlooks the garden.
The family bathroom is finished with grey tongue-and-groove panelling, a bath with a shower, a WC, and a vessel basin on a small stand.
A further flight of stairs leads to a small skylit landing and two attic bedrooms; these are both delightful, with coombed ceilings and dormer windows, and are each painted blue on their gable walls. This floor potentially offers a private area for guests or could serve as a self-contained space for teenagers.
44 High Street is a beautifully designed and decorated property. It is full of original features that make it an incredible period property. But it has also been sensitively updated to become a modern, elegant home suitable for 21st-century living without compromising any of its character or charm.
Its attractive village setting and magazine-worthy aesthetics make this property very special indeed, and early viewing is recommended.

About Fortrose
Only six miles from Inverness and on the Moray Firth shore, Fortrose is one of the most desirable locations in Northern Scotland. On the south coast of the world-famous Black Isle, the waters around Fortrose are home to pods of the largest bottlenose dolphins in Europe.
With a High Street made up of many Victorian sandstone and whitewashed properties, the area retains a quaint Highland feel, which has changed little since it was first constructed. The lovely buildings, comparatively mild weather, beautiful nearby beaches, and attractive countryside make Fortrose popular with visitors.
There is a strong sense of neighbourliness in Fortrose, and residents are very an active part of the town, from supporting its own Community Council, rowing and sailing clubs, golf course, market and community events,
The area is surrounded by important historic sites, including a 13th-century Cathedral, and is near many Pictish sites.
Agriculture, tourism, and freelance work are essential types of employment on the Black Isle. Still, its proximity to Inverness and other nearby commercial and industrial centres makes it a perfect commuting location.
There is a doctor's surgery in Fortros and the esteemed Fortrose Academy. Local shops and convenience stores are on the High Street, and larger supermarkets and major transport links are within a few miles drive from Invergordon, Dingwall, and Inverness. Buses run regularly from Fortrose into Inverness and Dingwall, and Inverness Airport is only 19 miles away.
