Property Summary

Located in an enviable location with stunning views over the Moray Firth and Fort George,  this two bedroom farmhouse with annexe is brought to the market requiring upgrading to realise an attractive family home.

Hillhead Farmhouse  is approx. a 90 year old property with a one bedroom annexe adjoining.

The farmhouse and annexe would now benefit from upgrading, and the property is no longer inhabited.

The habitable accommodation is contained to the ground floor with the farmhouse benefitting from a generous kitchen, dining room next door, spacious lounge with fabulous views, a bathroom, utility room/cloakroom and two double bedrooms.

A small staircase providing limited access, leads to the attic which has great potential and comprises 3 rooms with windows gaining lots of natural daylight.

The annexe comprises a lounge with sea views, bedroom, shower room and a kitchen.

The farmhouse is heated by means of LPG and a tank is sited to the side of the property. The annexe has fairly modern electric wall panel heaters. Windows are of mixed double and single glazing, timber and uPVC.

The garden wraps around the property with a good area to the front, back with parking and a drying area to the side accessed from a shared driveway. Some of the land to the rear is to be retained by the Farmer for farm vehicle access.

As the name suggests, the property sits in an elevated position above Ardersier, taking in striking  views over the Moray Firth and Fort George. The property lies approx. 2 miles from Ardersier village, 7 miles from Nairn, 11 miles from Inverness city and less than 4 miles from Inverness Airport, making it a very convenient location for commuting.

Ardersier is a small, but growing, former fishing village on the Moray Firth near Fort George, lying between Inverness and Nairn, and only a few miles from Inverness Airport.. Some stunning views can be had from the coastline which runs the length of the village.

Ardersier benefits from a primary school, 2 convenience stores, doctors surgery, hotels and other small independent stores along with Connage Cheese Pantry where they produce and supply a full range of their own handmade cheeses.

Ardersier Port, previously McDermott Oil Fabrication yard which has been long dormant, is well underway to become  one of Europe's most important locations for renewable energy and oilrig decommissioning. This will no doubt attract new life to the village and the area in general.
