Located by the River Ness in the capital of the Scottish Highlands, this family home is ideally placed for those looking to explore the city on foot with plenty to see within the local area.
This elegant townhouse situated in the heart of Inverness sleeps ten guests in five, charming bedrooms. Perfect for groups of friends, families and two canine chums, the foodies among you can enjoy tasting some superb local produce in the nearby hotels, whilst the urbanites will love exploring the bustling town centre with its excellent range of boutique shops, quality eateries, friendly inns and art galleries. Return to play a game of table tennis in the outbuilding before spending the evening around the fire pit, sipping hot chocolate and toasting marshmallows.
With traditional furnishings set harmoniously within a contemporary palette, find a blend of authentic charm and modern touches in this large family home. Wooden and flagged floors warm the neutral walls, with vivid quirky artwork throughout adding character in abundance whilst flashes of tartan acknowledge the Highland location.
After a busy day out, be welcomed into the hallway and head through to the spacious and bright living room. Here the pastel-coloured tartan rug complements the artwork, and the sofas beckon you to relax with a good book, lighting the wood burner once the evening sets in to create an amber ambience. Prepare delicious meals in the kitchen before gathering in the dining room to enjoy sociable get-togethers with waterside views. Careful consideration has been given to the practical requirements of a group holiday, with the utility room serving as an extension to the kitchen with a further oven, hob and microwave - very useful when catering for large numbers. With plenty of space for wet clothes, it is also ideal for a dog bed or two. When adults and teens need a little space, the second lounge – with its large corner sofa and Sky TV – is perfect for allowing everyone some downtime.
Bright and welcoming, the bedrooms retain the same character seen throughout the house. A king-size bedroom on the mezzanine level has an en-suite bathroom with a separate shower and a corner bath perfect for a long soak. A further four lovely bedrooms are on the first floor, including a double with an en-suite shower, and a further family bathroom. With an additional shower room on the ground floor, this home from home is well set up to cater for your mixed-age family group.
Wake refreshed in the morning to enjoy that first cup of coffee of the day in the garden. Well-maintained and completely enclosed, kids and dogs can play on the lawn or keep themselves entertained with boules and croquet. If the weather turns, retreat under the awning with a glass of wine with the chiminea lit and the BBQ sizzling as the kids battle it out on the table tennis table. There is off-road parking for five cars.
