Situated in the centre of Inverness, this fabulously located studio apartment is in need of some gentle TLC. However, with its excellent value and desirable position in one of the city’s most popular areas, it offers an outstanding and affordable investment opportunity.

Just a short walk from the centre of Crown, and close to both the Raining Stairs and Market Brae Steps, 31 Ardconnel Street is perfectly located to capitalise on the growing visitor market that Inverness is enjoying. Its excellent location adds to its potential as a charming but affordable holiday let.

Part of a stone-built terrace and constructed in 1900, number 31 has an appealing whitewashed facia and a small, enclosed area to the front. Flat A is on the ground floor and is accessed from a carpeted communal entrance hall.

The accommodation is a cosy 20 m2, with its generously sized living-bedroom occupying most of the space. Having a view onto Ardconnel Street, plus a high ceiling and good proportions, this room offers a great deal of scope for several layouts.

A comparatively spacious kitchen is finished with wall and floor cabinets and contains a free-standing oven and hob. The kitchen will also require modernisation, but it has the potential to be redesigned into a cost-effective but stylish contemporary space. There is an outdoor space to the rear of the property for use as a communal drying area.

The shower room has a free-standing shower, pedestal wash hand basin and WC.

Flat A, 31 Ardconnel Street, offers an investor a place to develop into an attractive and economical small home or holiday apartment. The current layout offers a good deal of scope for creative designs, and with the right permissions, it could be possible reconfigure the space entirely.

This property also offers a first-time buyer with an eye for development a fabulous opportunity to make their important first step on the property ladder.
