Just two miles from the centre of Inverness and close to some of the major employers in the area, including Raigmore Hospital, Police Scotland and several retail and business parks, Castle Heather is a leafy suburb popular with young people and families. Constructed in 1995 the property has been maintained to a good standard. It offers a nicely decorated home suitable for a couple as a first purchase or a potential investment. The building is neatly finished, with plenty of green space and residents parking. The flat is on the top floor of a two-storey purpose-built block and is accessed through a tidy communal entrance.

The living room is painted soft cream and has wooden doors, window surrounds and joinery, as is the rest of the flat. This room is comfortable and neatly laid out and has a large casement window and window ledge, emphasising the abundance of natural light, making it an attractive feature. There is plenty of room for seating and space to include a desk for home working or leisure. A generously sized kitchen is painted off-white to offset the stylish grey wall and floor cabinets and work surfaces. A four-burner gas hob and stainless steel oven finish the look, creating a modern space with a window that has a lovely view of the surrounding area. A separate bank of cabinets and the sink are to one side, leaving expanses of workspace for preparation and serving close to the cooking area. Space is available to include a table and chairs.

The double bedroom is generously appointed with space for dressing furniture and offers another lovely view across the wider area and of the trees outside. A large, deep window ledge adds character and charm to the room. The built-in double wardrobe offers a good amount of storage and its sliding mirror doors ensure the room is filled with light reflected from the large window. Finished in white and grey, with a walk-in shower, white WC and pedestal wash hand basin, the bathroom is simple but nicely finished and again, of a good size.

86 Castle Heather Drive is a delightful property which has been pleasantly decorated. It is well laid out and with a well designed interior of 42 m2, has good proportions, with plenty of space for a single person or a couple and it comes with a floored loft space which has electric sockets and lighting, offering additional storage or potential office space. With such a great location, a low Council Tax band of B and a fabulous top-floor setting, this is a very attractive property, especially for someone looking for their first step onto the property ladder.
