Built as a residential dwelling in 1885, then around 1920 for use by the Bank of Scotland, this charming house which is situated in a quiet residential area, close to local amenities and the new village square, was formerly the first bank to open in Ardgay. The village square regeneration project incorporating a business barn providing office space is currently under construction with the aim of providing a new heart of the community. In need of complete renovation, the accommodation comprises of lounge, kitchen/diner, three bedrooms and bathroom. The property benefits from an open fire in the lounge and single glazing throughout. There is a gravel parking area suitable for several vehicles to the front and a large enclosed garden to the side and rear. This property would make an ideal project for the property investor.
