Asking Price:

A rare opportunity to purchase Raliadh - an impressive Victorian 6 bedroom detached house in the desirable Crown area of Inverness.  This handsome stone built villa and large garden is surrounded by a high stone wall lending it a surprising degree of privacy and shelter whilst being close to the city centre with its restaurants and shops only a few minutes walk away.  The property, which is not listed, is within a conservation area and is close to both primary and secondary schools and only a short walk from the train station.   To the front of the house, a stone pillared driveway entrance leads to a generous tarmac parking area for several cars, and to the rear, a separate driveway accessed from the Avenue leads to a single garage. 

With 4 spacious reception rooms, the accommodation retains many original features, including beautiful arched woodwork, deep skirting and architraves, ornate cornicing, stained glass feature windows, built-in mirrors and rounded alcove bays.  There is also ample storage throughout the house with several wall-press and walk-in cupboards and plentiful built in cupboards in the utility areas. 

With some modernisation the property will make a wonderful family home.  A sizeable loft space and scope for extension to the rear provide further development opportunity and excellent B&B or commercial potential.
