River Foot offers purchasers a unique opportunity to acquire a very interesting project in the friendly highland village of Glenelg. The traditional cottage was one of the first properties built in this popular seaside village and although now in a derelict state could be renovated to provide a comfortable property for residential or letting use given its prime location. The views afforded from this site are spectacular, with uninterrupted views of the barracks and down towards the beach. This site must be viewed to really appreciate its unique setting.
Prospective purchasers may also wish to consider demolition of the original property (via the correct consents) to provide the opportunity to create a new home. Along with the main house rests the ruins of the byre which could provide further development. It will be the responsibility of any prospective purchaser to establish the type project they wish to undertake and that it meets with any planning requirements set by the Highland Council Planning Department. The site extends to 0.28 acres and provides the perfect location to create a bespoke home that affords fantastic views and is also ideally positioned to take advantage of the amenities the area has to offer, including many hill and coastal walks right on the doorstep.
The property is currently uninhabitable and therefore there is no Home Report available.
NOTE: PLEASED BE ADVISED ENTRY INTO THE PROPERTY IS NOT RECOMMENDED AND EXTREME CARE MUST BE TAKEN WHEN VIEWING. ANYONE ENTERING THE PROPERTY DOES SO AT THEIR OWN RISK
