Description

Situated in the popular Inverness area of Highfield, this lovely one-bedroom property has been carefully maintained throughout its ownership. On a direct bus route to Inverness City Centre, Inshes Retail Park, and Inverness Campus, this affordable and easy-to-manage home is ideal for a couple with employment in these areas, or those who have retired and looking for a welcoming and quiet community with easy and regular access to retail and leisure facilities. A nearby path leads directly through the impressive Craig Phadric Forest.
Constructed in about 1978, this semi-detached bungalow is neatly designed and located on a generous site. A vestibule opens onto a well-proportioned living room with a large window showing the front garden and woods. Decorated in neutral colours and fully carpeted, the space offers a generous amount of room for seating and AV equipment.
A glazed door leads to a galley kitchen elegantly fitted with simple cabinets. With some reconfiguration, there may be potential to include a small dining area. The kitchen fully uses the property’s elevated position and has beautiful views as far as the mountains east of Inverness.
At the rear of the home is a double bedroom, also giving a fabulous view and outlook over the garden. The bedroom is currently carpeted and has a red feature wall. With some decorative care, this room could maximise the morning light creating a sunny and comfortable space.
A substantial bathroom is next to the bedroom and contains a large corner bath, with an electric shower and handheld shower over, a wash hand basin, heated ladder towel rail, and WC. There is a generous amount of space allowing for storage.
The garden is accessed through a glazed door in the kitchen, which opens onto a platform giving fabulous views over the surrounding area. Concrete and stone steps lead to a patio and area of lawn. Timber fencing makes this an area that is both private and protected from the weather. Its irregular shape and views make this a charming and quirky garden offering much scope for creative designs. A timber shed provides storage and a gate leads to the gravelled driveway at the front of the bungalow. The front garden also has areas of lawn, as well as attractive beech hedging. The parking area is to the side of the bungalow.
This home has a low cost Council tax band (B) and with an energy efficiency rating of Band C with the opportunity to improve this further, 39 Highfield Avenue offers a delightful home with masses of potential in a quiet and desirable residential area at an affordable price.
