Property Description

Full description

Yvonne Fitzgerald and Re/max Premier are delighted to bring to the market this unique Victorian stone built villa in a desirable coastal village.
Built in 1890, this traditionally built, established guest house still retains some of it's original features, such as wrought iron staircase, beams, stone walls, ceiling rose and decorative coving.

This is a spacious property with a lot of potential.

Representing excellent value for money, the business is currently trading mainly during the summer months at present, as the current owners are semi retired.
With scope to increase the turnover, the new owners could offer, lunches, afternoon teas and evening meals as it is in a tourist hot spot.

There is ample accommodation in this property with 5 letting rooms, 3 En suites, family bathroom and a WC with wash hand basin, dining room and kitchen. The present owners currently use two bedrooms with their own private lounge and shower room for their own use.
It has a cellar from its previous use as a public bar and numerous other unusual features.

The guest house is 217 m2 internally and benefits from a building plot with planning, which is positioned directly across the road from it.

This property, when built, could be used as an annexe to the Guest House or sold as a family home. Approximate costs have been obtained by the sellers and there is a building warrant in place for 183 m2 house, over 3 floors.  When this townhouse, which has been designed to be in keeping with the other properties in this charming Victorian village is built, it would be worth in excess of £270000 making this an excellent investment opportunity.

Previously run as a licensed premises and hotel,  the business was also run as a successful tea rooms in years gone by.
The property has been well maintained with oil central heating and double glazing mainly throughout.
To the rear of the property is a small courtyard with access to the cellar.


With its ideal location, right on the High Street, Harbour Guest House,  is well situated to gain plenty of passing trade from the many tourists which  visit the Black Isle throughout the year. Nearby, in the village are all the amenities you need for every day life.  There is a Hairdressers, Community Hall, Convenience Store and Post Office.  Primary schooling can be obtained in the village, while secondary education can be gained at the renowned Fortrose Academy.
