Property Summary

Ponsonby is set in the centre of the village of Brora on the east coast of Sutherland (and on the NC500). The stone built property consists of a 4 bedroom house and a newly renovated 1 bedroom self contained apartment. There is an enclosed south facing garden to the rear and off street parking for 2 cars. The main house is tastefully decorated and has been well maintained and upgraded over the past 10 years that the present owners have been there. The apartment has been recently created from the former Post Office and has separate access making it self contained and suitable for Holiday Letting. As well as a Home report there is A Wise Timber Report to view.

The property can be used as a home with an income stream of holiday letting as it is on the NC 500 and close to the beach.

The village of Brora is conveniently situated on the NC500 and A9 on the east coast of Sutherland and lies halfway between the Inverness and Wick (just over an hour to either), and is approximately one and a half hours drive to Inverness airport. Brora has all amenities in the village;- medical centre, primary school, restaurants, takeaways and local co-op. Brora has an excellent 18 Hole Links Golf Course, unspoilt stretches of sandy beaches and a quaint harbour at the mouth of the river. It is a short drive inland to scenic Loch Brora. Brora is an ideal base for outdoor activities such as fishing, horse-riding and hill walking.
