Early C19th stone built grade ‘B’ listed two bedroom single storey property, in established and popular residential area close to the town centre.

The building backs on to Willowbank to the north, with the entrance being through the south facing garden. The spacious living room has partial views across Wick to the open sea, and a Fyfe stone fireplace with Caithness flagstone hearth fitted with gas fire, and together with the dining room is located in the existing long established extension, the original structure containing the two bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. The modern fitted kitchen has ceramic tiled floor, marble effect worktop and ample base and wall units. The bathroom is equipped with a double walk-in shower unit and large bath as well as usual WC & basin, the walls being tiled to dado level.

The property further benefits from having gas central heating and mixture of upvc & wooden double glazing, whilst the rear of the property has an enclosed garden laid to grass, low maintenance patio area and a stone built shed.

The property offers good potential for rental income and possible extension into the attic space, given similar conversions that have been carried out on neighbouring properties.  Potential purchasers would have to satisfy themselves on this point with the local authority and apply for the relevant building and planning consents.
Wick is the most northerly town on the east coast of Britain. The town offers shoppers the usual multiple stores, ample free parking adjacent to the main High Street, and a pedestrianised precinct which affords easy public access to the central shopping area. Transport to the town is via the A9/A99 road, railway or flights to Wick Airport. Wick Harbour was once one of the busiest fishing ports in Scotland, but now is predominately used for cargo and the fully serviced 70 berth marina.
