In an enviable location within the village Rose Cottage occupies a plot that extends to the banks of Loch Ness. The cottage has been well maintained with the double glazing having been replaced approximately 14 years ago, with the windows to the front sympathetically replaced with units with astragal bars in keeping with the traditional character. At around the same time the loft was converted to form first floor accommodation with a dormer extension to the rear having glazed sliding doors to a Juliet balcony with glass balustrade allowing panoramic views over the Loch. This room is currently utilised as a second reception room/home office but could be used as a principal bedroom and has a shower room off it. The open plan sitting room/dining room on the ground floor has a wood burning stove and an abundance of glazing allows an influx of natural light, extends the sense of space into the garden and frames the views over the water. The property could lend itself to further extension subject to gaining the relevant permissions.
