Spectacular two/three-bedroom traditional cottage in historic Culloden location
This late Victorian whitewashed mid-terrace cottage is exquisite in every way. Set in a pedestrian-only court near the world-famous Culloden House Hotel, several pristine cottages surround a square of beautifully maintained lawns, mature trees and herbaceous borders. With a south-facing entrance and large double-aspect rooms, this lovely property is sure to be a popular addition to Hamish Homes’ portfolio and viewing is recommended.
The cottage is entered via a sunny porch which opens onto a hallway consistent with the age and style of the property. The living room has deep-set double-aspect windows and a dark feature wall that suits the space well. This room could also make a third bedroom, good study, or home office.
One of the standout rooms in this stunning property is its fabulous country-style kitchen-dining room. With a beautiful view over the courtyard and masses of cream-panelled floor and wall cupboards in its L-shaped layout, this room can be described as the heart of the house. A substantial marble effect worksurface and tiled walls make this space comfortable and airy; the ample space in the centre leaves plenty of room for a family-sized dining table, chairs, and additional furniture.
Glazed doors lead to a comfortable carpeted sitting room, bathed in light from its window and patio doors accentuating the neutral walls, the sitting room is spacious and elegantly proportioned.
There is also a rear hall and vestibule that offers a generous amount of space for storage and coats and convenient access to the rear of the property. The ground floor is completed with a small cloakroom and WC.
On the first floor, there are two similarly sized large bedrooms. Each room has a double aspect and overlooks the courtyard and the area behind the property. There is built-in storage in both, and unusually for a property of this age and style, the first-floor ceilings are full height with minimal sloping, further adding to the already generous space.
The family bathroom is pleasantly laid out and features a bath with shower over, WC, wash-hand basin and white ladder towel rail.
There is a single garage and a generous utility space behind the property, which gives access to a drive and additional parking space.
5 Culloden Court is an exceptional property which has real character and charm. It may require a little upgrading and some modernisation, but with an interior area 110 m2 and being in such a beautiful setting, this property should not be missed.
At just four miles from the centre of Inverness, and five miles from open countryside, Culloden has the benefits of both urban and rural living. The Culloden area is large, extending south from the A96 as far as Drumossie Moor, the famous Battle of Culloden site.
Technically a village, Culloden is unique for its mix of property styles, from country houses, tied cottages, local authority housing, architect-designed homes, and new developments that offer blended accommodation, from affordable housing to strikingly contemporary apartments. This diversity creates a welcoming, inclusive community, further enhanced by a high level of services and facilities within a relatively short distance, given its comparatively small population of about 3,800.
Culloden is renowned for its sensitive handling of the Battle of Culloden in 1746; the National Trust’s Visitor Centre is one of the most atmospheric sites in the country, attracting visitors from around the world. But Culloden is rich with many other areas of interest: Culloden Woods is an ancient site popular with walkers and riders and features a Clutie Well and a marvellous Gruffalo Walk popular with families.
There are several primary schools, plus a large secondary school which is earmarked for a complete renovation, a medical centre, dentists, and a leisure centre with a swimming pool. Several places of worship are nearby, and independents, bars, and eateries, including award-winning Harry Gow’s head office, are all popular.
With proximity to Inverness, Nairn, the Scottish School of Forestry, Inverness Campus and Inverness Retail Park, Culloden is an excellent place for commuters and families, making it a great place to live, work, and visit.
