Lethington is a generously-proportioned stonebuilt property offering more than 4,800 sq. ft. of attractive accommodation arranged over three floors and located in a much admired and sought after location.
The property has charming, retained character features including mullioned glazing, high ceilings with fine cornicing and original fireplaces. From the welcoming reception hall there is access to a generous drawing room with a fireplace and a door to the garden, a large triple aspect living room with a large bay window, exposed wooden flooring, open fireplace and French doors to the garden and a spacious dining room with exposed wooden flooring, bespoke storage and an open fireplace. Also on the ground floor is an inter-connecting suite of rooms comprising a large L-shaped kitchen/breakfast/family room with a range of wall and base units including a large central island with breakfast bar and an inglenook with Aga, and a family area with feature corner fireplace. The neighbouring fitted utility room has garden access and there is a spacious dual aspect room with a store room and French doors to the garden, currently configured as a separate guest breakfast room but suitable for a variety of uses. The current owner uses part of the accommodation for business purposes and affords great flexibility for this and a wide variety of alternative uses.
On the first floor the spacious principal bedroom has built-in storage and a large en suite bathroom. Five further well-proportioned double bedrooms, some with original feature fireplaces, two family bathrooms, and a separate shower room complete the accommodation on this level. A separate staircase leads to the second floor, with a generous dual aspect attic bedroom with en suite shower room and a sauna.
The property is approached over a gravelled forecourt with a tarmacadam and block-paved side driveway providing parking for multiple vehicles and giving access to the rear aspect detached double garage. The well-maintained garden is laid mainly to level lawn bordered by well-stocked mature flower and shrub beds and features a garden pond with footbridge together with numerous seating areas and paved terraces, all ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, the whole screened by mature hedging and trees.
Lethington is situated in the very desirable Crown area of Inverness. Inverness is the main business and commercial centre in the Highlands, it offers a comprehensive range of amenities including Eastgate Shopping Centre, bus and train stations, cafés, bars, restaurants, High Street shops and supermarkets. Leisure and entertainment facilities include Inverness Leisure & Aquadome, Eden Court Theatre & Cinema, Bught Park and the River Ness with its popular island walks. The surrounding countryside of the Scottish Highlands is varied from the fertile, rolling farmland of the coast to the inland moorlands and rugged mountains, an unspoilt landscape providing a haven for many rare and protected species of wildlife as well as a wide range of leisure and sporting opportunities.
Communications links are excellent: the nearby A96 runs from Aberdeen and links to the A9 giving access to the northern and southern Highlands. Inverness station offers regular onward links to major regional centres including a sleeper service to London and Inverness Airport is less than 10 miles away, offering a number of domestic and European flights.
The property sits in the catchment area for Crown Primary School and Millburn Academy with the noted Gordonstoun independent school slightly further afield.
