Located in a quiet avenue away from main routes but within walking distance of major facilities and backing onto a popular golf course, this beautiful 160-year-old mid-terrace cottage is a desirable new addition to Hamish Homes’ portfolio.
Impeccably maintained and decorated throughout in a neutral palette, 24 Culcabock Avenue has all the attributes of a comfortable home, the distinct advantage of being in walk-in condition and an energy performance rating of better than average Band C. For a property of this age, these make an exceptional opportunity.
The house has a neat gravelled front garden and shrubbery, with a door opening onto a cosy entrance hall. The living room is spacious and features a wood-burning stove and double-glazed windows with a fabulous deep ledge overlooking the cottages opposite. This is an attractive and welcoming space with hard flooring, generous proportions and open access to the kitchen.
In the kitchen, the numerous light-coloured floor and wall cabinets lend the room a contemporary edge and the neat dark-coloured work surface and galley layout create a modern feel that belies its age. The view is across the garden and a French door opens onto a paved patio.
Next to the kitchen is a neatly arranged shower room with a white WC, hand basin, ladder towel rail and walk-in shower.
The ground floor rooms are completed by a cosy bedroom with a window overlooking the garden. This space could also be used in other ways, for example, as a home office or study.
An attractive winding carpeted staircase leads to the first-floor landing. The principal bedroom has a view over the garden and its west-facing aspect makes for spectacular sunsets. The good ceiling height and tidy proportions will create a comfortable space. The second bedroom overlooks the front of the house and has a charming partially coombed ceiling. Finally, there is a generous bathroom with modern fittings, including a deep bath with a shower over it and a large ladder towel rail.
The garden is fully enclosed with timber fencing offering privacy. The gravelled patio area is spacious and leads down onto a well-maintained lawn edged with shrubs. At the bottom of the garden is a small timber shed. There are rights of access over the neighbouring property, ideal for putting out the bins. 24 Culcabock Avenue is a delightful cottage that will make a wonderful family home. It has a desirable rural feel but is within a few minutes’ walk of Inverness Golf Club, Inshes Retail Park, Raigmore Hospital and more. With its fabulous condition and walk-in availability, it is a property that will be very popular, so early viewing is advised.
