Property description

Delightful two bedroom lower ground floor apartment, forming part of a Category B Listed baronial style mansion house.

Location

Lentran House is located within the small hamlet of Lentran, on the south shore of the beautiful Beauly Firth and located between Beauly and Inverness. Lentran House lies approximately 6.3 miles from the thriving Highland village of Beauly, which is popular with outdoor enthusiasts given its proximity to the stunning mountains and glens which include the challenging Glen Affric. There are a number of shops, cafés and restaurants located in and around Beauly, especially set around the attractive village square.

Inverness is a modern and vibrant city with excellent and varied facilities, including the marina, train station and airport just 30mins away with regular flights to London and the south and summer and winter flights to Europe. Just a short distance from the city centre is the beautiful, peaceful and unspoilt countryside for which the Highlands are so famous. The dramatic mountains, stunning coastline and the fertile land which is bounded by wide sandy beaches and rugged moorland are all part of the charm Inverness has to offer. There are wonderful opportunities for sport and leisure including sailing, mountain climbing, walking, riding, skiing and cycling. For the keen golfer there are championship golf courses at Royal Dornoch, Nairn, Spey Valley and the Castle Stuart Golf Links. There is salmon fishing on the rivers Beauly, Glass, Nairn, Findhorn and Spey, with shooting and stalking available to rent on local estates.

Only a short distance to the south is the popular skiing area at Aviemore in the Cairngorms, a National Park of great beauty. The west coast for more dramatic scenery lies approximately two hours away.

Description

Apartment 5 is located within Lentran House, a striking Category B Listed mansion house. Dating back to 1866, Lentran House was originally owned by the former Provost of Inverness, later used as an RAF base during the Second World War, and more recently as a residential care home. Converted into eight luxury apartments during 2005, the building has benefitted from a recent programme of refurbishment. Apartment 5 is located on the lower ground floor, and provides well proportioned and tasteful living accommodation which will no doubt appeal to those looking for a countryside retreat within the beautiful setting of the Scottish Highlands.

The imposing entrance doorway leads into the communal entrance hall, with its distinctive monochrome tiling, elevated ceilings and deep skirtings. A modern lift leads down to the hallway shared between Apartment 5 and another, while within the hall space there is an exclusive secure storage cupboard. From here, the entrance door leads into the exceptionally spacious reception hall, which is capable of accommodating large items of freestanding furniture and has neutral decor and wooden flooring. From the hall there is access to the entrance vestibule, where a partially glazed door leads out to the rear courtyard and gardens beyond. Within the vestibule a double cupboard houses the electricity fuse boxes and shelving.

The sitting room is of generous proportions and benefits from a good flow of natural light from triple windows which overlook the communal gardens. The carpeting is cream coloured to contrast with the decoration, and within the sitting room there is access to a walk in store room. Fully carpeted and with lighting, the store room could perhaps also be utilised as a study area or butler's pantry if required.

The dining kitchen features a good range of attractive base and wall units, with laminate work surfaces which incorporate a stainless steel sink with drainer and induction hob with extractor fan above. The kitchen also includes a range of integrated appliances.

The principal bedroom is a bright and peaceful room of tasteful decoration and lovely views over the rear courtyard. The principal bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room, which has a white two piece suite and a fully tiled shower enclosure with mains shower appliance.

The second double bedroom lies on a gentle split level to the reception hall and is a well proportioned and bright room with tasteful decor and neutral carpeting.

Completing the accommodation is the bathroom, which features extensive tiling around the white three piece suite.

Outside, the apartment enjoys the advantage of extensive communal grounds which surround the property. Mostly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubbery, and extensive woodland area, the remains of the former fountain are still located within the grounds. From the main road, a private driveway leads around to Lentran House, where there is ample shared parking available.

Square Footage: 1612 sq ft
