Tenure: Freehold

Beautiful property with half an acre of surrounding land, this original three-bedroom detached stone cottage built in 1825 is located in an area famous for its natural, tranquil beauty with panoramic views over the Highlands countryside. This idyllic property would suit a variety of potential purchasers including those looking for a property with holiday-let potential, due to its proximity to the growing popularity of the North Coast 500 route.

Property - 126 Skerray Mains is a detached cottage that has accommodation spread over two floors. The ground floor accommodation consists of an entrance vestibule, an entrance hall, a double aspect lounge with open fireplace, a bathroom, a dining/family room with open fireplace and wood-burning stove and with the kitchen off. On the first floor can be found three bedrooms, all with fitted storage facilities and one with an en-suite WC. The property is fully double-glazed, has oil fired central heating with the water also being able to be heated by a back-boiler connected to the wood-burning stove located in the dining/family room. Although the property requires a degree of renovation it makes a comfortable family home that also holds great potential for use as a holiday let due to its proximity to the growing popularity of the North Coast 500 route.

Gardens - The gardens that surround the cottage extend to approx. 0.5 acre, are fully enclosed by a combination of stone walling and wire fencing. The garden to the front is laid to a combination of grass and gravel with a slabbed pathway leading to the front door. There is a stone/timber outbuilding located in the front garden. As with the front garden, the rear garden is fully enclosed. It is mainly laid to grass and has a number of mature trees. Located within the rear garden is a greenhouse and a timber shed, both of which are included in the sale.

Location - On the north coast of Sutherland, Skerray's home to a community of artists and tree planters and in close proximity to the North Coast 500 route, Skerray Bay contains a small harbour and pier for the perfect escape. Cliffs and inlets along the coastline are explored by sea kayaking enthusiasts, whilst musical groups from other countries perform in the local community hall. You'll find the breathtaking Torrisdale Bay just a 25 minute drive away and equally picturesque hamlet of Talmine within the same distance.
