Comfortable home close to the centre of Inverness with modernisation potential
This delightful mid-terrace home is in a well-established residential area close to some lovely outdoor spaces and just two miles from the centre of Inverness, making it an excellent property for young families and those working in the city centre.
28 Johnston Place was built in 1975, and at 82 m2, it is comparatively roomy for a property of this type and age.
The property is accessed via an attractive front garden with a well-kept lawn and through a hallway with white-painted woodwork. The open-plan living-dining room has been wallpapered throughout, and the two areas are separated by a half-height wall and an archway, creating interest. It also allows light to fill each space due to windows at either end of the room.
The kitchen is mainly in a practical L-shape but has a separate area of storage and a worktop, plus many wall and floor cabinets finished in a wood effect with a dark work surface. A wooden door leads to the garden, and the large window over the sink lends a relaxed, friendly feel to the space.
Completing the ground floor is a box room that could be used for storage, a small study, or a home office.
A carpeted staircase leads to the first floor, where there are three bedrooms. The two larger bedrooms have views over the local area and are well-provided with natural light. Both have generous footprints and painted white woodwork. One is decorated in soft greens, and the other is wallpapered.
The smallest bedroom also benefits from generous proportions as well as having a practical built-in wardrobe. Currently decorated with whimsical wallpaper, the room is playful and sunny and would make a lovely space for a young child.
The family bathroom is roomy and light-filled from the large window and is tiled in white and with a shower with shower over, WC and handbasin in a wood effect vanity unit.
Outside, the timber-fenced and hedged garden has an area of lawn and paving, a small timber shed and a large area of decking. It is fully enclosed, making it suitable for young children or pets. There is parking near the front of the property.
This lovely property is very homely and has clearly been a comfortable family residence. However, there is an opportunity to modernise the house should the new owner choose to do so. It also offers potential as a stylish, modern-looking home with all the pluses of a well-built property in a friendly residential area. As such, it will make a very nice place for a young family, especially one looking to climb onto the property ladder.
28 Johnston Place is worthy of consideration, especially as properties of this age and size are in demand locally.
