Enjoying a sunny westerly aspect and a great open view westwards over playing fields and to the Clickimin Loch and the broch directly opposite, 23 South Lochside is a two bedroom semi-detached property within easy reach of Tesco, the Clickimin Leisure Centre, Anderson High School and the hospital.

The accommodation on the ground floor comprises a west-facing living room, kitchen and handy downstairs toilet. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, both with built-in cupboards, and a bathroom. Externally there is parking for a couple of cars to the front and a good-sized garden with lawn / drying green and large garden shed to the rear.

Heating is provided by several of the latest Dimplex Quantum storage heaters and the windows and doors (with the exception of the tiny window in the kitchen) were replaced in 2018 with uPVC double glazed units. The property would however benefit from some updating which is reflected in the price. Nonetheless it offers an affordable two bedroom property with the benefit of the fine view and the convenience of amenities close by.


There are two uPVC external doors to the property, the front door opening to a vestibule with side window and inner door to a hallway with door to the right to the living room and stairs ahead to the first floor, the living room being a bright west-facing room enjoying the fine open view over the playing fields opposite to the Clickimin Loch and the broch. A built-in cupboard houses the hot water tank.

Off the living room to the rear is the kitchen with ample fitted floor and wall units including a sink and plumbing for a washing machine (appliance not included), the window looking out over the back garden. A door from the kitchen opens to a side lobby with the second uPVC entrance door, a handy ground floor toilet with WC & wash hand basin, plus useful storage space under the stairs.

The stair which is lit by windows at the top and bottom, leads up to the first floor landing, two double bedrooms and a bathroom comprising a white three piece suite with wet-wall lined shower area and electric shower over the bath. The main bedroom is situated to the front of the house, two windows enjoying the great view west, two cupboards providing clothes and storage space. The second double bedroom which has a built-in wardrobe is situated to the rear, a hatch with pull-down ladder providing easy access to the loft space.

Important Information for Prospective Purchasers

This schedule is intended only to help you decide whether to view the property. We always recommend you view the property personally.

The information is believed to be correct, but it is not warranted and is not to form part of any contract of sale. All dates, distances, areas and room sizes noted are approximate and for use as a general guide only. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves as to the working condition or otherwise of any equipment such as central heating or kitchen appliances.

This schedule should not be taken as a comment on the condition of the property. This is a matter for your surveyor and we recommend that once you have found a property you are interested in, you obtain a survey report. We can provide details of surveyors if required.

Interested parties are advised to note their interest through their solicitor as soon as possible so that they can be informed if a closing date is fixed. Noting interest does not place any obligation on the seller to set a closing date or to give any noted interests the opportunity to offer. Whilst every effort will be made to advise noted interests of any closing date set, this cannot be guaranteed.

No responsibility will be accepted for expenses incurred by parties who have noted interest but do not get an opportunity to offer, or for any expenses incurred traveling to properties which have been sold or withdrawn.

I was really satisfied with the service you provided and would recommend it.
