Located in the centre of the quiet village of Auldearn, this charming home is well presented and offers something different. Imagine a cold winters evening curled up in front of the stove, or a summers day, looking out at the picturesque views of the village. It sits just off the main street by the local primary school and is on a bus route between Inverness and Aberdeen. With its low council tax band, this home would suit a first-time buyer, a young primary school teacher looking to get a foothold on the property ladder or someone looking to invest in a buy to let property. The home benefits from double glazing, gas fired central heating and shared enclosed gardens.
