Seaside home of author Angus MacVicar for sale

Oh my. This is absolutely stunning - the very definition of a renovation gem.
A sweet little bungalow with amazing sea views, a literary heritage, and a decent price (around £140k).
The downside (obviously apart from the work that will need doing) is that the deadline for offers is noon tomorrow - Tuesday.

Overlooking Southend Bay, the Scottish Southend that is, Achnamara had been owned by the prolific  Scottish author Angus MacVicar. Not sure who has been using the house since MacVicar's death 18 years ago but it doesn't look in bad nick for a long-empty home.


And I love that barely anything seems to have been changed from his tenure - from the wallpaper to those gorgeous lightfittings and less gorgeous storage heaters.
The bungalow has three bedrooms (personally, I'd turn that front bedroom into a dining room and knock through to the kitchen) and a large garden.

Achnamara is on the market through Stewart Balfour and Sutherland at offers over £139,500. Details and more pictures here and here.

And thank you to my regular tipster Jacky for finding this Scottish gem : )
