Property description

We are delighted to bring this character home to the market. The Rowans is a charming country cottage which has been in the same family for a long number of years and was formally the Post Office for the area. This stone and slate dwelling boasts fantastic rural views and is in an elevated position. Adjoining the cottage is a stone barn which has been divided in to three separate rooms which provides further storage or could be utilised as a workshop. There is also a garage. The property occupies a generous garden plot and although in need of some redecoration, this cottage, which is located approximately six miles from Thurso would make a fantastic family home. There is a dining hall just off the vestibule which features an attractive stone fireplace. This room leads to the family lounge which is of good proportions and has a beautiful oak fireplace with an open coal fire which makes a pleasing focal point within this bright room. The kitchen has cream fitted base and wall units with laminate worktops. There is space within this room for a dining table as well as appliances. Located off the kitchen is the family bathroom which benefits from a bath with a shower above. The two double bedrooms are light and bright and both benefit from built in storage. There is a seating area which is a sun trap in the summer months to the rear and to the front, there is an enclosed garden with mature trees and flowers. Both the rear and side gardens are laid to lawn and are ideally positioned to take in the views towards Morven.
The property is a short car journey to the village of Halkirk where there is a primary school, church, hotel, and a convenience store. Further facilities can be found in Thurso which is a five minute drive away. In Thurso there is a cinema, a swimming pool, a good selection of shops and hotels, as well restaurants and a bowling green. The Caithness General Hospital and the John O Groats Airport are in Wick which is a fifteen minute drive from the property, which is also on a bus stop.
