Full description

The West Wing offers a unique opportunity to purchase a substantial two bedroomed apartment within the charismatic Elsick House in the historic spa village of Strathpeffer. Elsick House was originally built by Dr Morrison of Elsick, Aberdeenshire, who settled in the village when he discovered that the Strathpeffer spring waters alleviated his arthritis. He called his new home Elsick House. It was later taken over by the Scottish Youth Hostel Association in 1945 and run as a youth hostel until 2002. In 2007/2008 Elsick House was fully refurbished and converted to residential use. The property is close to a good range of excellent facilities and is within easy commuting distance of Inverness City and Airport.

This period property has been sympathetically renovated to provide comfortable, modern accommodation yet retains much of its original charm with high ceilings, deep skirtings and ornate coving. The property benefits from oil-fired central heating complimented by an open fire in the lounge and has recently been redecorated throughout along with new light fittings and curtains added. The accommodation consists of an entrance hallway with large storage cupboard; a good-sized kitchen/diner with bay window, a good selection of base and wall mounted solid oak units, complementary tiling to splashback, integrated oven, hob, microwave, washing machine, fridge-freezer and dishwasher; a lounge, again with bay window, and open fire set in an ornamental surround. On the upper landing is a further open fireplace along with loft ladder access to the attic which is partially floored with Velux window. This generous area provides potential office space and leads on to the double-aspect master bedroom enjoying views over the garden, open fireplace and en-suite facilities comprising a three piece suite and freestanding mains powered shower; further double bedroom with bay window and fireplace and family bathroom comprising a three piece suite in white with mains powered shower to bath.

The property sits within a well-maintained communal garden area and comes with two allocated parking spaces. There is also additional parking available for visitors. An area included in the title houses the oil tank and is suitable for the erection of a garden shed. The highly popular village of Strathpeffer offers an excellent range of facilities including shops, post office, chemists, hotels, restaurants and a small selection of bespoke retail outlets. Strathpeffer Pavilion, located in the centre of the village also hosts a wide range of music events. Primary education is provided within the village while secondary education is provided at Dingwall Academy. The property is adjacent to a number of woodland walks and the Village also boasts a Golf Course and Pavilion.

The nearby market town of Dingwall offers a good range of facilities and amenities including supermarkets, a bank, a library, a swimming pool and a range of retail outlets. Inverness, the main business and commercial centre of the Highlands is approximately 19 miles away and offers extensive shopping, leisure and entertainment facilities along with excellent road, rail and air links to the South and beyond.
