Description

Fabulously located in the heart of Inverness City Centre, 15b Young Street is an intriguing and unique pied-a-terre on the top floor of a stunning Grade C-listed building. Its location and fantastic value make this property especially attractive and it offers much potential as a quirky first home for a couple or single person, or as a buy-to-let investment property. Accessed from a staircase at the rear, this apartment is on the top floor of a building constructed in 1888 and offers a bijou 50 m2 interior space filled to the brim with character, charm and beautiful architectural features, as well as great views.

Part of a block of ten properties, Flat 3 opens into a private carpeted staircase that leads to a landing and hallway. The living room has a bay window that looks across the top of Inverness with views to the hills in the north. With its attic setting the room has beams and sloping ceilings and a shapeliness that creates an intriguing space for seating and relaxing. An open archway leads to a simple U-shaped kitchen which has a space within a south facing bay window for a dining area. This kitchen is modestly fitted out and offers tremendous potential for upgrading. With some good design considerations it could easily and cost-effectively result in a small but stunning kitchen-dining room.

The bedroom is spacious and also full of beautiful beams and sloping ceilings creating interest shapes and offering potential for unique designs that could be either strikingly contemporary, or that reflect the traditional feel and age of the property. A shower room is simply appointed and has a walk-in shower enclosure, white WC and wash hand basin.

While this apartment will obviously require both decorative care and some modernisation, properties of this type and aesthetic and with such a good valuation are becoming increasingly difficult to find and will become even more so within the coming years. Yet with its unique features combined with a generous interior space and a fabulous location in one of Scotland’s most popular cities, this studio apartment will make a delightful home for a single person or a couple. It is also a property that will greatly interest those looking for an investment at a reasonable price and early viewing is highly recommended.
