Rare opportunity: outstanding four-bedroom house with great potential
Under the ownership of just one family since 1965, this unique and attractive four-bedroom detached house offers an innovative and creative new owner the chance to design a fabulous contemporary home in one of Inverness’ most desirable locations.
Glen Atholl is an imposing property located on an expanse of open plan lawn, with a timber-fenced garden to the rear. The house has been upgraded over the past decades, with attention paid to solar panels, double glazing, and heating systems.
The interior of the property has a mid-century feel, which, given its current popularity, makes it noteworthy to many buyers. However, for those who wish to explore the creative potential of the elegant layout and spacious rooms, there is considerable scope to turn this house into a statement of good design and aesthetics.
The open-plan L-shaped living and dining space has a feature stone wall, a beamed ceiling, and a large picture window. Its generous proportions and shape lend it a feel of a laid-back lounge and, with the right touches and decorative input, would not be out of place in a style magazine. It is a perfect place for relaxation and entertaining.
Similarly, the kitchen opens itself to the chance of creating a fabulous new space with the potential of modern design features and fittings. That said, the kitchen in its current form is useable and offers a range of floor cabinets and a generous extent of work surface. The kitchen also benefits from a large window overlooking the garden and a door to an undercover area leading to the garage.
The ground floor has two spacious bedrooms, each with large windows and built-in cupboards. As there are two further bedrooms on the first floor, one or both of these could easily be used as a home office, craft room, or private sitting room should this type of space be required instead.
A large shower room with a walk-in shower, WC and handbasin is also accessible from the ground floor rooms.
A timber staircase leads to the first floor, with its two large bedrooms each with great garden views and built-in storage. These lovely rooms have coombed ceilings and are both interesting shapes, with the principal room offering the potential to upgrade to an en-suite arrangement, subject to consent.
The bathroom is tiled in white and has a quirky blue suite consisting of a bath, WC, and wash hand basin, but it also offers scope for modernisation.
Glen Atholl has a detached garage, which serves as a means of privacy for the timber-fenced garden.
At 156 m2, and with its fabulous layout and striking location, this lovely property is a dream for a buyer with creative flair, and offers excellent potential as a beautiful contemporary home for someone with an eye for good design.
