Drumbuidhe is a 1.5 storey detached villa, tucked just off the High Street in Kingussie and along the side of the River Gynack.  The central location is ideal for easy access to local facilities and amenities and yet still enjoys mountain views from the first floor.  The property, which was constructed in 1982, is in need of modernisation and upgrading.  It benefits from double glazing, LP gas central heating, open fire, attached garage with inspection pit and separate workshop.  There are two large double bedrooms upstairs, one of which has a separate walk-in dressing room with built-in wardrobe and there is a large 4 piece bathroom and separate walk-in shower room.

This property would make an ideal purchase for those looking for a renovation project in a central location.


The property is accessed from the High Street via a shared (with Gynack Villa) gravel driveway, through wrought iron gates and over a gravel parking area to double wooden gates giving access to Drumbuidhe.

Double wooden access doors.  Inspection pit.  Two high level windows to the rear.  Electric light.  Shelving.  Access through to storage area with double wooden doors.

A driveway leads from the front round the side of the house to the garage at the rear.  There is an outside decking area adjacent to the sun lounge.
