Description

At the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, 19 Birch Place is just a short walk away from the highly respected Culloden Adademy and close to beautiful natural areas, including Culloden Woods and the famous Gruffalo Trail. Its internal space of 77 m2, stunning location, access to several excellent schools and local services, and proximity to Inverness will make this a popular property for new or growing families.

Built in 1976, the house has a gravelled drive leading to a single garage and an extensive front parking area with ample room for several vehicles.

The smart grey front door opens into a hall decorated with wallpaper and grey carpet, which is used throughout the property. A large open space is below the stairs, providing room for storage or furniture.

The living room is well-proportioned and decorated in grey, with textured paper on the feature wall. White joinery and cornices complement the decor, giving it a clean, contemporary feel, and large double-glazed windows provide good natural light.

The dining-kitchen has hard flooring and is painted grey with glossy white cabinets finished with a granite effect worktop and splashbacks. A brushed steel oven, gas burner, and matching splash back and extractor hood enhance the kitchen’s modern feel, and light from the south-west facing window and patio door gives the space an airy and welcoming look. The dining space is generous and offers a view of the garden.

A carpeted staircase leads to the first floor to a cosy landing with inbuilt storage. The principal bedroom has textured wallpaper and a large window extending across much of the room’s width, giving a fabulous view of the surrounding fields to the Moray Firth. The white-painted built-in wardrobe, generous floor space, and south-west facing window further enhance the room’s scale.

Two further bedrooms are at the front of the property and have pleasant views across the leafy surrounding area. The smaller room has a dais that extends over the stairwell, creating an interesting architectural feature that could be incorporated as part of a raised space in a child’s room, or used as storage if the space were to be used as a home office, for example.

The bathroom is well decorated with natural-coloured tiles and is fitted with a shower bath, vanity with a WC, and inset wash hand basin.

The garden can be accessed from the kitchen-dining room and opens onto a paved patio with lawn beyond. A generously sized timber shed is to one side, and a timber deck provides a slightly elevated view of the beautiful surrounding landscape.

This attractive and comfortable family home has many outstanding features and plenty of opportunity to upgrade as required, making it potentially very popular. Its good EPC rating of C and attractive valuation also add to its desirability and early views are therefore advised.

About Culloden

At just four miles from the centre of Inverness and five miles from open countryside, Culloden has the benefits of both urban and rural living. The Culloden area is large, extending south from the A96 as far as Drumossie Moor, the site of the famous Battle of Culloden.

Technically a village, Culloden is unique for its mix of property styles, from country houses, tied cottages, local authority housing, architect-designed homes, and new developments that offer blended accommodation, from affordable housing to strikingly contemporary apartments. This diversity creates a welcoming, inclusive community, further enhanced by a high level of services and facilities within a relatively short distance, given its comparatively small population of about 3,800.

Culloden is renowned for its sensitive handling of the Battle of Culloden in 1746; the National Trust’s Visitor Centre is one of the most atmospheric sites in the country, attracting visitors from around the world. But Culloden is rich with many other areas of interest: Culloden Woods is an ancient site popular with walkers and riders and features a Clutie Well and a marvellous Gruffalo Walk popular with families.

There are several primary schools, plus a large secondary school, which is earmarked for a complete renovation, a medical centre, dentists, and a leisure centre with a swimming pool. Several places of worship are nearby, and independent shops, bars, and eateries, including award-winning Harry Gow’s head office, are all popular.

With its proximity to Inverness, Nairn, the Scottish School of Forestry, Inverness Campus and Inverness Retail Park, Culloden is an excellent place for commuters and families, making it a great place to live, work, and visit.
