This is a wonderful opportunity for the owner/occupier of this deceptively large, beautifully modernised, 4 bedroom property to become a financially successful AIR B&B host by capitalising on its great city centre location.
You can benefit from the already created, totally independent one bedroom, ground floor flat within the rear of the property, with its own private entrance and own private off street parking bay.
The property also has a high level of fire safety, which may meet the standard required for a short-let certificate. All bedrooms have fire doors with intumescent seals, door closers and Yale locks.
There is also a very good hard-wired fire alarm system with battery backup along with fire extinguishers and a fire blanket.
Within this tourist flat, there are several letting options.
(A) Conservatory studio flat, with perhaps a bed settee, one or two studio couches or recliners.
(B) One bedroom flat, with additional double divan and single divan, or three single divans
(C) Two-bedroom flat (with minor joinery work required) with an additional double divan or two single divans.
The owner can then occupy the large front living room,with the original front door for private access, as well as three bedrooms, mezzanine shower room and a fully modernised large attic (approximately 15 x 9 ).
In central Inverness, you may find some short lets hosts are advertising one-bedroom flats for well over £100 per night on websites. Check out Air BnB hosting websites, for Inverness, and be prepared to be astonished at the prices being asked and paid.
The alternative option is that the owner may choose to occupy the rear, one-bedroom ground floor flat, which should be more financially rewarding, by capitalising on the short let rooms by advertising each individually at perhaps circa £50 per night with a share of the excellent mezzanine shower room.
An ambitious owner/occupier with entrepreneurial skills may decide to host the whole house, put some bedroom furniture in the large attic, for himself, then luxuriate in the whole house during the day, after his guests have gone AWOL. Another very financially rewarding choice might be to transform the back room into a beautiful solo traveller's studio flatlet by restoring its previously unrequired door to the garden and installing a W.C. in the adjacent under the stairs cupboard, and perhaps invest in a couple of lovely chalets at the foot of the very large garden. Small cars may access the rear of the property but would require some careful driving. Backpackers and tourists will love this location being just a few minutes minute walk from Ness Bridge.
A short-term hosting certificate is required as may planning/building warrants for any alterations.
The current home report valuation is £245,000 however this property is far more than just a house. It can possibly solve much of, and perhaps all of, your current mortgage, electric and gas woes and perhaps much much more.
