Property SummaryRarely in Findhorn does the opportunity arise to buy a cottage, in the heart of the village, at a reasonable price. This spacious, one-bedroom, semi-detached traditional cottage is just a couple of minutes’ walk from the beach, the pubs, the Bakehouse Cafe and the Post office. It boasts a kitchen, large sitting room, shower room, ample bedroom, a conservatory for sitting out and has been recently painted. In addition, it has plenty garden space and a shed. The cottage has planning permission to convert to an amazing 2-bedroom cottage with a cathedral ceiling in the living room and a spiral staircase to the 2nd bedroom. Alternatively, it could be improved as it is or by using some elements of the planning permission. This cottage is unlikely to remain on the market long.
