Fabulous first or investment property with storage; large garden, scope to modernise.
Located in a quiet area of Culloden and at the end of a leafy cul-de-sac, No. 17 Alder Place is an intriguing one-bedroom house offering investment potential for a single person or couple looking for a quirky home with a large and elegant garden.
The house is part of a small condominium and lies at the rear of the building. The entrance opens from the enclosed, private garden into the sitting room, creating a delightful cottage-type feel.
Currently decorated in blue, the sitting room has a captivating galley-type shape, offering many opportunities as an attractive living space with the potential to create some great room layouts. For example, taking advantage of the window space as a suitable spot for a desk and placing a folding dining table near the kitchen will quickly create a practical, contemporary setting.
The kitchen is quaint and also enjoys a view of the garden; with plentiful wall and floor cabinets and wood effect worksurfaces, there is plenty of room for preparation and storage. Again, this room has the makeover potential to create a fabulous small kitchen.
Adjoining the kitchen is a large box room with power outlets and a generous footprint; this offers a practical space as a walk-in pantry and useful storage area.
An inner hallway includes an open tread winding staircase that leads to the first floor. This space is well-sized and offers scope to install a more conventional spiral staircase later to further enhance the contemporary feel of the property. Filled with natural light from above, this is an exciting part of the building, offering plenty of room for bookcases, shelving and artwork.
The single bedroom is spacious and has views of the garden and neighbouring trees; the large built-in wardrobe and generous floor area provide plenty of space for clothes storage and dressing furniture.
The shower room is well laid out, with a large shower enclosure, WC, wash hand basin and vanity unit.
One of the best features of this lovely property is its extensive enclosed garden. Laid with a lawn and including a shed, patio, raised beds, and separate drying green, this turns the property into a wonderful home to enjoy to the fullest.
With an interior space of 50m2 and a large garden, this is an absolutely delightful property, rich with potential and exciting features and details. For a couple or individual with the right touch and some creative design ideas, this offers a wonderful, affordable home, particularly if they are looking for somewhere to invest in as their first rung on the property ladder. It provides a rare opportunity to acquire a great place in a fantastic part of Inverness, and early viewing is definitely advised.
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.
