A rare opportunity to purchase a traditional and deceptively spacious, detached cottage in the Muirtown area of Inverness. This extended and upgraded cottage dates back to the early 1900's and is in very good decorative order. In recent years the upgrades included gas central heating, double glazing, the addition of a ground floor double bedroom with ensuite shower room and an external conservatory accessed from the rear garden area. This south facing cottage is located in an enviable and peaceful position with views over the Caledonian Canal and surrounding areas. The accommodation is over two floors, on the ground floor there are two public rooms, the comfortable lounge with enclosed multi fuel fire, and the dining/family room which benefits from having a multi fuel stove. Access to the fitted kitchen is from the dining room where there is space for a cooker, additional white goods and plumbing for washing machine. From the rear hallway is bedroom three which is a double room benefitting from an ensuite shower room and lovely views over the garden. To complete the downstairs accommodation is the family bathroom with bath, over bath shower, wash basin and WC. On the upper floor are two double bedrooms, bedroom one has a fireplace with a wood burning stove and a large walk in wardrobe/dressing room. Bedroom two is another generous double size room with ample space for free standing furniture. The property is accessed via a narrow public road and is located at the 'dead end', ensuring there is no passing traffic. To the front of the property is an enclosed garden with path leading to front door. There are double gates to give access to the garage, parking, rear and side gardens. The gardens are mature with beautiful plants and shrubs, sitting areas and drying area. To compliment the garden is the conservatory, this lovely garden room is attached to the property with access via the garden.
This is a beautiful traditional home, in a quiet, country feel location and will appeal to anyone looking to live in close proximity to all Inverness amenities in a home full of character and charm.
** A pre-planning application (Ref: 18/03278/PREAPP) has been granted for the erection of a detached one and a half storey dwelling house within the garden grounds. Further details can be be obtained from the Tailormade Moves office.**
