Located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and backing onto a large green space, this charming one-bedroom property is ideally located for all the services in Culloden but far enough away to be peaceful. A bijou sounding 38m2 means the property has the advantage of a Council Tax band of B and a better-than-average energy rating of C. But its intelligent design and pleasing layout, plus access to a large and attractive garden, make it feel so much larger.

The property is part of a small block of purpose-built flats constructed in 1986. Harled in pink and grey stone and featuring a tidy front gravelled garden, the flats are elegantly finished, in keeping with the surrounding properties. A cheerful, pink-painted vestibule opens onto a comfortable living room decorated in modern grey with white joinery. The living room has space at the kitchen end for a dining table and workspace, leaving plenty of room for a generous arrangement of seating and AV equipment. A large casement window ensures there is a lot of natural light.

The kitchen is well-finished with plentiful floor and wall cabinets and a clean-edged, white-speckled worktop with attractive grey-tiled splashbacks. Arranged in a galley layout, this is both practical and contemporary and the kitchen also benefits from a good amount of natural light from the large window and glazed patio door. An elegant stainless-steel bowl and monobloc tap add to the modern feel.

The double bedroom has a white-fronted integrated wardrobe and hard flooring. There is a great view of the garden from its large window. The bathroom has a bath with a shower over it, a white WC and a pedestal wash hand basin. It is tiled in white with strip tile details and has a chrome ladder towel rail.

A unique feature of this property is its large garden. The stylish patio has circular paving surrounded by gravel, which leads to an elevated gravelled section accessed by three stone steps and finished with a low stone wall. Fenced with timber and featuring a paved walkway to the end of the garden and decorative flagstones, the space ends with an area that is currently bare, making it ideal for new ideas and designs. A small shed is next to a gate opening to a beautiful public green space. For a couple or individual looking for a first property, 72 Blackwell Avenue offers a great opportunity. It also has exceptional investment potential. Coupled with its stylish looks, excellent location, and scope to easily expand on its contemporary feel, this is somewhere we expect to attract a lot of interest and encourage early viewing.

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 that is 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.
