Detached 5 Bedroom Traditional Stone Villa set in the Heart of the Popular Crown Residential Area of Inverness.
Moraystone is a detached stone built property set in the heart of the Crown area of Inverness. The property, built in 1935, has been in the same family for 3 generations and thus has never been available to purchase on the open market. Boasting many original features such as high ceilings, picture rails and coving, viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the generous sized rooms and ample storage provision. A large entrance hall leads to the lounge which appreciates a central fireplace and bay window and then to the double aspect dining room which is bright and airy. The kitchen is set to the rear and has ample cupboard space for storage with a door leading to the rear garden. There is also a study/bedroom 5, shower room and cloakroom which are accessed from the hall. The carpeted stairs lead to the first floor landing. There are four double bedrooms on this floor, along with a wc and a bathroom. The loft which is accessed from the landing, is fully floored and offers excellent conversion potential, subject to planning consent. The gravelled driveway provides excellent off-street parking and leads to a detached single garage. A gate to the side opens to the fully enclosed rear garden which is mainly laid to grass for easy maintenance.
The property is situated in the highly sought-after Crown neighbourhood, within a designated Conservation Area, and is within easy walking distance of the city centre. The local primary school is Crown while older children would attend Millburn Academy. Kingsmills shopping area is a short distance away. Doctors and dental surgeries, churches and hotels are all within easy reach.
From the Town House in the centre of the city, travel along Castle Street and at the top of the hill continue through the traffic lights onto Culduthel Road. Take the left hand turn for Southside Road and Moraystone is located on the left hand side.
