Imposing detached period villa


Located in the heart of the popular Highland town of Fort William, Strathmore forms a most impressive, detached period villa, set in private garden grounds of around 0.2 acres. Dating from around 1900, this handsome property exudes plenty of character and charm, and retains many of the original features including a striking pitch pine staircase, plaster cornicing, sandstone fireplace and original doors. Whilst modernising would be advantageous, Strathmore benefits from double glazing, oil fired central heating and two open fires. Deceptively spacious, the property provides a flexible family home and could easily be adapted for a variety of uses such as a guest house or a self catering opportunity in a very buoyant holiday rental market. The grounds to the rear of the house may provide space for expansion, an additional dwelling or self-catering units, all of course subject to the necessary planning consents.

Ideally located just a short walk to the centre of Fort William, the property is well placed to take advantage of all the amenities the area has to offer. Locally, Fort William offers shops, supermarkets, restaurants, railway & bus station and a range of professional services as well as primary schools, a secondary school, churches, medical centre and a hospital. The area also boasts a huge range of sporting and recreational opportunities and is known as 'The Outdoor Capital of the UK'.
