Property Summary

Monster Moves is delighted to bring to the market this rare opportunity to renovate a former croft house on the edge of the village of Helmsdale, Sutherland. The croft house (now de-crofted) has been empty for over 30 years and therefore requires complete renovation, it is not habitable and therefore there is no Home Report. The croft on which the house sits is capable of being a working croft.
The croft comprises:- 5 plots of land of various sizes with the largest (1.17 acres) to the back of the cottage and a quarter of an acre down to the River Helmsdale. Mains water, drainage and electricity services are currently disconnected from the property but are available in the area.

Full Details

Area 1 - 1.17 Acres
Area 2 - 0.47 Acres
Area 3 - 0.26 Acres
Area 4 - 377.04 Sq. Yards
Area 5 - 363.29 Sq. Yards

The present house and attached sheds are in need of total renovation or there is a possibility of relocating a new house with the appropriate planning consents.

Currently there are two plots that have been de-crofted which are highlighted in pink on site plan #2. Area 1 extends from the rear of the house to the foot of the hill and is 1.17 acres in size. Any potential purchaser of the croft must allow access to croft 95 which lies adjacent to croft 92, this entrance is shown on site plan #2 and is within the boundary of area 4.

Helmsdale is a pretty coastal village (a population of approx. 900) and offers all local amenities;- Primary school, local shops, Doctors Health Centre and community centre. Helmsdale is steeped in history and this can be observed at the award-winning Timespan Heritage Centre, which facilitates many community and heritage events.

As well as being situated on the A9 and NC500, Helmsdale lies at the mouth of the River Helmsdale and has a harbour for both fishing and pleasure boats. This area offers Golf, scenic walks, tennis courts, and fossil hunting. Public transport via train and bus runs through the village north and south with Inverness an hour and a half away.
