A further bathroom and four bedrooms are found off the first floor landing, one enjoying the fantastic far-reaching views.

The plot is particularly deep with, to the rear, a large paved patio and deep lawned garden, with large timber shed to the rear boundary which adjoins open farmland.

All in all, 'Dunvegan' offers an opportunity for those purchasers seeking a characterful home with adaptable accommodation, ample parking, fine far-reaching views, deep sized rear garden, requiring updating with huge potential and, as the vendor's Sole Agents, it is without hesitation an early viewing appointment is arranged.
