Brimmond is a single storey, three bedroom detached bungalow set within a large garden extending to approximately 0.4 acres in total, in a quiet village location. It is of timber frame and concrete block construction with a pitched timber frame roof clad in interlocking concrete tiles and uPVC double-glazed windows. It has an oil-fired central heating system with radiators throughout; making it a cosy and energy efficient property. While requiring internal modernisation, the property has the potential to provide a comfortable home or Highland retreat and currently consists of two double bedrooms, a single bedroom, living room, kitchen/dining room, bathroom, WC and conservatory. Externally the property benefits from off-street parking, a large garden with lawn, mature trees, including an attractive mature cherry tree and shrubs along with two storage sheds. The large garden would make the property suitable for development subject of course to gaining the requisite planning permissions.
Brimmond is located on the western edge of the village of Ardgay. The village, in conjunction with the adjacent Bonar Bridge, remain hubs for the surrounding rural communities and are a gateway to the heart of Sutherland.
The village of Ardgay is home to the Kyle of Sutherland Development Trust. The Trust has facilitated the development of The Barn which provides modern business space and community meeting facilities, including a fully equipped kitchen. The Barn is home to several local businesses. In the village is the fantastic Ardgay Stores and Highland Café along with a mechanics garage. Nursery and Primary schooling is provided at Gledfield Primary School. Further amenities including a small hospital, chemist, butchers shop, convenience store, B&Bs and cafes can also be found in Bonar Bridge. While a regional hospital, banks, supermarkets and other commercial services you would expect of a larger urban centre can be found in Tain, approximately 14 miles to the south east.
Brimmonds location at the head of the Dornoch Firth Estuary is excellent for accessing some fantastic salmon fishing on the River Oykel, Carron, Cassley and Shin. Approximately 14 miles east is the renowned Royal Dornoch championship golf course. There are several other Links courses a short distance away.
The village of Ardgay is approximately 11 miles from the A9 trunk road (which forms part of the ever popular NorthCoast500). The road network in the area provides routes to the Assynt region on the West Coast and to Altnaharra and Tongue on the North Coast (both routes linking onto the NorthCoast500).
