Built in 1888, 6 Montague Row has many features that make this building attractive not just as a family home, but also to those interested in offering guesthouse accommodation for visitors to Inverness. Featuring curved walls, picture rails, corbels and bannisters contemporary with its age, this lovely house has masses of potential as a stylish and dignified property.
The ground floor of the property offers a spacious array of rooms. To the front of the house is a large living room with a wide, well-lit bay window and a marble chimneypiece flanked by two alcoves. Picture rails and cornices further enhance the traditional look of this elegant room.

The first floor is in two parts; the larger area consists of two generous bedrooms with coombed ceilings, one with a pretty bay window, and each bedroom has an en-suite shower room.
On this part of the upper floor is also a compact kitchen with plenty of space for storage and preparation, giving the potential to create either a granny flat or self-catering accommodation within this suite of rooms.
