Within a few minutes walk of the centre of the Highland capital, Inverness, this beautifully restored semi-detached house in walk-in condition, also enjoys a peaceful residential setting in the Crown area, one of the city’s most sought-after locations. With a friendly village-like feel, the Crown has a robust community that is also well served by small independent shops, well-regarded schools and services, including one of the Highland’s most important creative hubs, just moments away.

Constructed in 1900, the property is accessed via a tidy, gravelled front garden enclosed by solid walls. A large vestibule opens into the hallway, elegantly decorated in white with wooden joinery. The large comfortable lounge faces south east, with a bay window overlooking the front of the house. The open fireplace and mantle capture the property’s heritage. Alcoves and cornices lend additional character. A large dining room is at the rear of the property and has a view of the garden and a red-tiled hearth and fireplace create a unique feature in the room. Given its generous size and the available space in the kitchen, this room offers several potential alternative uses including a home office or workspace should a separate dining room not be required. Decorated with white walls, tiles and featuring a high ceiling that slopes at one side, with double aspect windows, the kitchen is a light-filled standout space. Wooden-fronted wall and floor cabinets that wrap around the far end of the room along with an attractive cater-corner arrangement decorated with a grey tiled splashback, lend a practical and aesthetically pleasing layout. A large island is in the centre of the kitchen leaving space beyond for a generous dining area with small details such as a plinth in one corner and a short entrance corridor add additional charm and character.

A metal balustered staircase lies beyond an arch in the hallway leading to the first floor that has a large skylight with stained-glass details. The four bedrooms are all decorated in white and distributed via a split, staircase and landing, which is finished with neutral carpeting as used elsewhere throughout the house. The upper landing has three bedrooms, including the principal bedroom. This is a very generous space and is beautifully appointed with a coombed ceiling, shelved alcoves, a fireplace and white mantelpiece. A second bedroom overlooks the garden and is spacious. The third bedroom is charming with unique proportions and offers scope as a child’s room or dressing area. The lower landing contains the fourth bedroom, which is a delightful mix of alcoves and sloping ceilings. A window overlooks the garden, and a skylight provides additional natural light. The bathroom, also on the lower landing, has a white bath, WC, wash hand basin and shower enclosure.

Outside is a pretty garden laid mostly with lawn, gravel paths, and herbaceous borders. Enclosed with timber fencing, the garden is private and offers a beautiful outdoor space that is very much in keeping with the property. At 124m2, 34 Union Street, is a large and comfortable property that is solidly built with graceful elegance. Its fabulous location and potential as a beautiful comfortable family home make this a very appealing property, and early viewing is recommended.
