Situated in an attractive residential area close to the centre of Inverness, Balmoral Terrace is known as a high-quality residential area with notable properties and Runnymede House is no exception. Approaching the house, it is evident the house was created with opulence in mind and a definite sense of stature. Constructed in 1965 and with an interior space of 230 m2, the property exemplifies the solid building standards and attention to detail synonymous with the era.

Opening onto a large glazed vestibule and then a hallway with an expanse of red carpeting and wooden joinery, the entrance has a luxurious feel that is echoed throughout the house. The extensive living room has a substantial open fireplace with a marble surround and a glazed wooden door that leads to the kitchen. A traditional kitchen-dining room with solid wood cabinetry, a tiled floor and red-tiled walls, a style that echoes the rest of the property. This comfortable, extensive kitchen area has a vast amount of floor and wall storage. The dining area is equally grand, featuring striped wallpapers and built-in storage in the alcove. An extensive utility area adjacent to the kitchen opens onto the garden.

The large downstairs bedroom has striking red-hued walls and a large window overlooking the garden. A unique feature of this remarkable room is its double ensuite. One part features a dressing area with a handbasin and large mirrored wardrobe and the next is a complete bathroom with a corner bath with shower, WC and handbasin. Across the corridor is a further ensuite bedroom decorated in blue. This room is currently used as a gym and has a large mirrored wardrobe that extends across one wall and a blue ensuite with WC, hand basin and walk-in shower. The downstairs accommodations are completed with a substantial cloakroom with a WC and hand basin.

Upstairs, the rooms are equally luxurious and are situated at either end of a spacious landing. A bedroom at the end of the house has an adjoining Lounge. These could easily be converted into a bedroom with a substantial dressing and ensuite shower room, subject to approval. A further bedroom is also large with graceful proportions. Both of these bedroom rooms are attractively shaped with delightful coombed ceilings. The family bathroom is finished in elegant black and white and has high-quality traditional sanitaryware, including a bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin.

The garden is extensive and is enclosed with deep hedging. With several areas of grass, paving, a gararge, a greenhouse, and mature planting, the garden is comfortable and benefits from privacy and space.
With its grandness and beautiful garden, Runnymede House is a fantastic family home with much potential to enhance the many features and mid-century details found throughout the property. It also has scope for several purposes, making this an exciting addition to Hamish Homes’ portfolio and one that will definitely be popular.
