Fabulous opportunity to purchase a beautifully presented first floor apartment, conveniently located in the heart of the town centre. Thoughtfully restored by the current owner, the property retains a wealth of original period features which bring character and charm to the home. High ceilings, deep skirting, deep window sills, elaborate ceiling roses and decorative cornicing, reflect the splendour of a bygone era. Whilst the building itself is not included on the listed register, it is a building of historical significance. The Duke of Cumberland resided in a room to the rear of the building, originally the Roses of Kilravock town house, before the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Only by viewing can one fully appreciate the stylish interior, complimented by a bright and airy feel throughout. This highly desirable home will appeal to a wide range of buyers including growing families, professionals and first time buyers alike. It will also attract investors seeking a holiday let which offers great potential to generate excellent returns.
A wrought iron gated close leads from the High Street to the main entrance of the building. Located on the first floor, flat 1 shares an immaculately maintained communal stairway with the second floor apartment. An ornate staircase curves up to the impressive entrance door. At over 13 metres in length, the grand inner hall gives access to all the rooms. The generously proportioned lounge is positioned to the front, benefiting from two large windows which flood the room with natural light. An open fire with feature tiling set on a Caithness stone hearth, provides a central focal point. Positioned to the rear, the kitchen benefits from a good range of of base and wall units, in addition to a large free standing storage unit. There is ample space for a sizeable dining table and chairs. Further kitchen storage is provided by way of a deep cupboard housing the boiler. Bedroom one is a beautiful room, of a very generous size. Two large windows, complimented by deep window seats containing storage and recently fitted shutters, give a view to the rooftops and street below. A traditional Edinburgh press cupboard provides storage. Steps lead down from the bedroom to a separate dressing room/gym, boasting a triple floor to ceiling mirrored wardrobe built to the current owners` bespoke design. Bedrooms two and three are also to the front of the building. Both generously proportioned doubles with high ceilings and cornicing, bedroom two has a feature fireplace and a deep window seat with storage. Bedroom two offers the flexibility to be converted into a spacious en-suite bathroom accessible from bedroom one. This could be facilitated by utilising the back to back Edinburgh press cupboards as access. Likewise, the existing door between bedroom two and three could provide access to an en-suite. Bedroom four, a decent sized single, is currently utilised as a cosy snug/home office. A traditional style bathroom, featuring a mains powered shower over the bath, completes the living accommodation.
The property enjoys a generous area of communal garden ground to the rear, perfect for outdoor entertaining during the summer months. The garden is low maintenance, mostly laid to paving. A security gate gives direct access to the free public car park at the rear.
