A Category C Listed, 5 bedroom townhouse in the sought-after Crown area of the city, close to local amenities

Dating from 1897 and believed to have been built by Alexander Ross to house officers from the Cameron Barracks, 7 Victoria Terrace is a generously-proportioned stone-built family home offering more than 2,100 sq. ft. of attractive accommodation arranged over three floors. The home is sensitively modernised yet retains all the charm, character and period features of its era including external gothic and castellated detailing, hoodmoulds, a pointedarch front door, sash windows, high ceilings with fine cornicing and original fireplaces.

On the ground floor, the welcoming reception hall leads to a spacious front aspect dining room with exposed wooden flooring, feature open fireplace and a serving hatch to a generous kitchen/breakfast room, also accessible through an inner hall. The kitchen provides a range of wall and base units including a breakfast bar, integrated appliances and neighbouring fitted utility and glazed laundry rooms, the latter with a door to the rear garden. Also on the level is a family bathroom.

Stairs from the reception hall rise to a spacious first floor landing leading to a generous front aspect sitting room with feature open fireplace and large sash windows with panoramic views over the city, a large rear aspect principal bedroom with built-in storage and en suite shower room and an additional well-proportioned front aspect bedroom. The property’s three remaining bedrooms can be found on the second floor, together with a useful cloakroom.

Outside

Outside Having plenty of kerb appeal, the property is approached over a low maintenance front garden with mature shrub beds set behind dwarf walling. It benefits from a separate private parking area on the other side of the road giving access to an enclosed split-level garden with real potential for landscaping to provide a fabulous family and entertaining space. In its current configuration it provides steps leading down past terraced flower and shrub beds to a cleared space, ideal for an area of level lawn. The walled garden to the rear is block-paved for ease of maintenance and features double wooden gates accessible from Victoria Lane, making it ideal for further parking if required.

Situation

Location Victoria Terrace is situated within a conservation area in the popular Crown district, just a short distance of Inverness city centre. Inverness is the main business and commercial centre in the Highlands, which 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. Various adventure sports including skiing and hill climbing are available in the Cairngorms National Park, just a short drive away. 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 area offers a good range of state schooling including Crown Primary School and Millburn Academy with the noted Gordonstoun independent school slightly further afield.
