Description

This charming traditional cottage is located in Crown, considered one of the most desirable areas in the City of Inverness. The property was constructed in 1900 and is along a pretty lane of Victorian one and two-storey cottages. The cottage has a south-facing front that is entered from a neat garden enclosed in stone and laid with gravel. Beyond the hallway, which is decorated in soft grey and whites, the interior is finished in a rough cast wall texture, and the property features a warm terracotta palette in many spaces. With a floor area of 77 m2, the property has generously proportioned rooms, particularly its charming living room, which has a wooden fireplace and a slightly coombed beamed ceiling. The room benefits from hard flooring, wall lighting and alcove shelving.

13 Argyle Street has a fabulous, spacious, well-designed kitchen offering much potential. The L-shaped setting, with an additional preparation area, is finished with off-white cabinets and stylish black surfaces, including tiling. A breakfast bar provides convenient space for dining, however, this could easily be replaced to create room for a freestanding kitchen table and chairs. A newer extension serves as a utility area, but its plentiful windows and timber lining, coupled with the generous space within the kitchen itself, means this room could instead avail itself for use as a sunroom.

The first bedroom is to the front of the property and is simply decorated. This room could also be considered for use as a home office for remote working. The principal bedroom lies to the rear of the house and enjoys a fabulous view of the garden through its two large windows. This generous space is L-shaped and features an alcove with open storage and benefits from a dog leg, which provides privacy from the hall and other areas of the property. The bathroom has been fitted with white sanitaryware and includes a bath with shower over it, wash hand basin and WC.

Outside, a large wooden fenced garden is laid mainly with gravel and includes a pretty timber summer house and two timber stores. Several mature plants soften the practical, easy-to-manage exterior. This charming property in a peaceful residential area, which is also popular with visitors to Inverness. The house will require a little care to elevate to contemporary standards and some aesthetic treatment to lend a fresh look and finish may be considered. However, it is a delightful house for a small family or someone who may work from home but who also enjoys being close to the City Centre.
