Rockbank is a delightfully extended traditional 3 bedroom property located within approximately 1/2 an acre of garden ground where there was once planning permission in place for an erection of another dwelling property, this land could provide scope for various revenue generators in this popular highland village.
Rockbank is located in the heart of the village, close to all amenities yet holding a very private setting. The property is deceptively spacious with rooms generously proportioned with the ample windows allowing lots of natural light making it a bright comfortable family home. Benefiting from oil central heating the accommodation within comprises entrance porch, hallway, sitting/dining room, kitchen/dining room, shower room and bedroom on the ground floor, with stairs leading to the upper floor landing, 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom. This stone built property occupies a generously proportioned garden area extending to ½ an acre or thereby which has previously had planning permission granted for the erection of a dwelling house. This permission has now lapsed but could possibly be refreshed should purchasers require. The garden is mainly under grass with mature trees, bushes and shrubs and, is intersected by a natural burn running through it, across which a bridge leads to a very private part of the garden. Ample parking space is available on the gravel driveway. Rockbank has previously been run as a bespoke ‘bed & breakfast’ establishment with the location being ideally placed for attracting passing trade, should purchasers choose.
