This charming and uniquely presented house, is in the popular area of Hilton and is less than two miles from the centre of Inverness and close to Inshes and several popular parks and amenities. Constructed in approximately 1948, this property has been strikingly decorated throughout and benefits from dedicated off-street parking and a tarred front garden area. It has lovely period features, including alcoves, small cupboards and an interesting passage from the kitchen to the front of the property.
The living room is decorated in bold patterns and hard flooring, accentuating the fireplace with its wood-burning stove and attractive natural mantelpiece. With a window to the front of the house and glazed patio doors, this double-aspect room is cheerful and quirky and presents a very relaxing feel.
The galley kitchen is open to the living room but still discreet. It has an extensive range of modern wall and floor cabinets that extend into a passageway, creating plentiful storage space. The decor flows from the living room, creating a cohesive look but it is supplemented by attractive metro tiles in different neutral shades.
Upstairs there are two generous bedrooms. The principal room extends across the width of the house, with two windows overlooking the garden resulting in a delightfully well-lit room with interesting proportions giving scope for many different designs and layouts. Decorated in warm reddish tones with black and white damask wallpaper, the room is dramatic yet fun and offers a playful, homely space.
The second bedroom, located at the front of the house, is smaller but no less attractive, with a half-height built-in cupboard, hard flooring, and generous proportions.
The neat garden is laid with a lawn and has a small patio area. Enclosed with fencing, a timber shed and a wood store, the garden is practical and offers a comfortable and private space for relaxing and playing with family. 8 Tomatin Road is an interesting property that has a lot of potential to redecorate with a simply designed contemporary interior; but equally it is a playfully designed home with interesting aesthetic touches. Either way, this lovely house will make a cheerful and fun home for a young family, especially one looking for their first step on the property ladder.
