Woodlands is a handsome Victorian house in a highly sought-after residential area of Inverness. The property is in an exceptional setting within the Riverside Conservation Area, totally secluded, lies close by the River Ness and within easy walking distance of the city centre, Eden Court Theatre and Bught Park sports centre.

Inverness has all the facilities of a thriving modern city and the mix of old and new has allowed the city to retain much of its historic dignity and strong Highland culture which blend well with modern theatre and the arts. There are good communications by both road and rail and the airport, about a twenty minute drive away, offers regular flights to the south and Europe.
The countryside of the Scottish Highlands is varied, from the fertile, rolling farmland of the coast to the inland moorlands and rugged mountains. This unspoilt landscape provides a haven for many rare and protected species of wildlife as well as a wide range of rural leisure and sporting opportunities from way-marked walks and cycle trails on the Black Isle, to skiing and adventure sports in the Cairngorms National Park.

Woodlands is an outstanding property which offers the rare combination of grandeur, comfort and manageability. Set in beautiful, mature, landscaped grounds, the property is an oasis of calm and retreat within its city setting. The house has been sympathetically upgraded to a very high standard and shows exceptional attention to detail in all elements of the renovation. Original features have been retained or restored and include Penrhyn heather slate roof, an impressive staircase, panelled doors, intricate cornicing, fireplaces and master bedroom balcony.

The beautifully proportioned interior has elegant reception rooms and comfortable bedrooms, while the conservatory with its energy efficient glass roof and the open plan dining kitchen allow for integrated family living.
The current owners purchased Woodlands in 2011 and while the house was renovated prior to their purchase, they have carried out a number of further improvements and these include the creation of the new dining kitchen with oil fired AGA, the installation of a wood burning stove in the hall and complete redecoration.
