If you’re looking for something a little different, then take a look at Corrie House. Not only does it sit in an enviable position, overlooking the popular Craobh Haven Marina, it has been extensively refurbished since it was built in the 1980s.

It has been successfully run as a 5 star B&B and, in 2013, a cookery school was built in the grounds, which augments the lifestyle business opportunity provided by the property.

This now has planning consent to be converted into a residential dwelling, giving the new owners a degree of flexibility if they have plans for extra accommodation.

Corrie House is on the market for offers over £775,000 with Strutt and Parker.

The house is on the market for offers over £435,000 with Thorntons.

Approaching the house, you would never guess that this contemporary living space existed, and this revelation only makes Millbank House all the more distinctive.

From the front, this is a handsome period home with an impressive facade and a modern kitchen extension.

The arched entrance has bay windows on either side surmounted by stone carved pediments overlooked by the dormer windows on the first floor, and you’d be forgiven for expecting an entirely traditional interior.

There are two reception rooms at the front – the bay windowed sitting room and family room – along with a bedroom (one of four) at the rear at ground level and an expansive kitchen, dining and seating area attached to a utility room.

Upstairs you’ll find three double bedrooms, including two bay windowed rooms at the front, along with a large bathroom to the rear.

With an internal floor space of just over 2,000 square feet this is clearly a very generous home, which is currently on the market for offers over £399,000 with Galbraith.

Old Scrabster House is named for its location – the coastal hamlet of Scrabster, close to Thurso in Caithness.

The original house, which was extended in the late 1880s and divided into two separate dwellings in the mid 1900s, was built in 1834 on the site of the former Scrabster Castle.
