"The property itself and the price is unique for the area, so we've had a huge amount of interest in a small space of time," Mr Robertson said.

"The defining features are the modern rear extension, separate annexe at the back of the property and the quality of the fittings which has received a huge amount of investment from the current owner.

"It is a beautiful home for someone looking to make a move to a coastal and rural area."

The rise in the cost of living is expected to have an impact on the housing market but Mr Robertson is confident the market will not suffer in the long-term.

"The rise in living costs will have an impact on the housing market with buyers needing lots of disposable income to buy," he said.

"The expected shortage of property on the market is expected to bolster it in the long-term though as a counter balance."
