McEwan Fraser Legal is delighted to offer a very rare opportunity to purchase this detached former care home which was, up to April 2019, operating as a House of Multiple Occupancy (HMO) supporting several retired adults over 55 years of age. The property is now vacant and would readily convert to a guest house/hotel or Bed and Breakfast establishment (given appropriate permissions) being ideally located a short walking distance from Inverness City Centre and ideally located to take advantage of the increase in visitors to the area caused by the advent of the popular North Coast 500 (NC500) driving route, Outlander TV programmes and many other local visitor attractions.
This substantial property was constructed as a traditional Victorian villa with an imposing façade and is set within a large area of mature private gardens which may allow further development. The property has been improved and maintained to a very high standard and retains many original features despite being adapted for its recent role as a care home.
The property has 8 individual studio flats set over two floors (most with en-suite facilities), large lounge, dining room, commercial kitchen and pantry area, laundry room and office. The attic area additionally consists of a lounge, bedroom and bathroom which could be upgraded to provide a comfortable owners living area.
The overall layout of the property is very flexible and would allow it to be used for several different purposes within the hospitality and care sectors or even a large family home/office accommodation. The building was fire compliant as of April 2019.
This is a wonderful chance to acquire a very substantial property with many potential uses in a fantastic Inverness City Centre location.
