Royston, Stemster, Halkirk (257m2)
This traditional stone built five bedroom semi-detached former school house is situated approximately 7 miles from Thurso with beautiful panoramic views over the surrounding open countryside. To the rear of the property sits a stone stable block, divided into three stalls plus tack room with power, light and water, making this property ideal for keen equestrians. The current owners have previously rented grazing land from the neighbouring farmer, which was accessed by the rear stable door. Subject to planning permission the stable block could be converted for other uses. The spacious accommodation comprises of conservatory, lounge, large kitchen/diner, dining room, utility room, five bedrooms, bathroom and two shower/wet rooms. This superb property benefits from uPVC double glazing and oil central heating. The grounds leading to the property are laid mostly to gravel and includes many established trees and shrubs, with ample parking for several vehicles. The surrounding area is full of wildlife including small deer, which are often seen right up to the boundary, along with foxes, badgers, herons and many other birds. Viewing is a must to appreciate this wonderful property.
Gillock is a quiet peaceful scattered area set in the centre of the County of Caithness and is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The wide open spaces and the abundance of flora and fauna make it the perfect place to relax. The county has a focus on agriculture, crofting, fishing and tourism. The county also has a unique archaeological history. Gillock is approximately 5 miles from the village of Halkirk and approximately 9 miles from Thurso which is one of the main two town in Caithness.
