Full description

DESCRIPTION
24 Harrowden Road enjoys an excellent trading location a few minutes' walk from Inverness City centre, located within a popular holiday accommodation area. This stone-built property is easily located and benefits from garden grounds to the rear. Operating as a self-catering business, 24 Harrowden Road offers a warm and friendly welcome to its clientele and is arranged to provide spacious, comfortable and quality accommodation including 3 bedrooms and excellent support areas. This is a well-established business and over recent years the owner has maintained the property to a creditable level.

REASON FOR SALE
The present owner purchased 24 Harrowden Road in 2008 and has enjoyed the rewards of trading such a successful business. It is due to his desire to reduce his workload that brings this excellent, easy to operate business opportunity onto the market.

TRADE
The business generates its income from both short term and weekly lets. The benefit of weekly longer-term lets is the reduced workload regarding change-overs etc. The business has resulted in much repeat trade. Income could be readily expanded, as Inverness is a highly popular destination with business clientele and of course tourism - the prime business drivers. In Inverness there is a shortage of letting accommodation during the height of the tourist season and therefore income levels are most sustainable.

LOCATION
24 Harrowden Road is ideally situated centrally to Inverness city centre, highly convenient for guests wishing to walk to nearby shops, restaurants etc. The business is close to the River Ness offering some excellent walks to Ness Islands across the attractive footbridge. Inverness has extensive facilities for visitors boasting two golf courses, an excellent indoor swimming complex, cinema, bowling and ample opportunity to enjoy evening entertainment at a range of venues which include Eden Court Theatre. Nearby Cawdor Castle offers a taste of Scotland's medieval past while Culloden Battlefield and Visitor Centre is an ongoing testament to Bonnie Prince Charlie's final futile attempt to gain the throne in 1746. Whether it be a Whisky Trail, a boat trip on Loch Ness or a visit to one of the many accessible Scottish castles (including Inverness Castle), the property is an ideal base being within easy reach of a wide range of visitor attractions. Inverness is also the start and finish point of the North Coast 500 which draws in a number of visitors to the City. Benefitting from much expansion over the past few years, Inverness has a full range of social and welfare facilities associated with a modern city. The house is within walking distance to both primary and secondary schools. All social and welfare facilities are close by.
