An imposing and impressive semi-detached villa, located in an enviable, elevated position in the heart of Fort William, with stunning loch views.

Offering spacious and versatile accommodation over three levels, the owners of Aldourie have created a superb guest house including private owner’s accommodation, presenting an exciting business and life-style opportunity for the successful purchaser or indeed a fantastic family home.

Property Description

Situated on an elevated site and commanding spectacular views across Loch Linnhe to the surrounding hills and countryside beyond, Aldourie forms a substantial semi-detached villa set in the heart of the popular West Coast town of Fort William. Thoughtfully upgraded and modernised over the years to a high standard, the owners have created a fantastic guest house business and family home in one. In immaculate order throughout, the property has been built to capitalise on the views and benefits from double glazing and oil fired central heating.

Arranged over three levels, the accommodation comprises – a large and welcoming entrance porch, entrance hallway, loch-view dining room, private owner’s lounge, modern kitchen and rear vestibule with access to the rear garden, all on the ground floor. The first set of stairs lead to the spacious landing of the middle level which offers a family shower room and three bedrooms (one with en-suite shower room). Finally, further stairs lead to the private, upper level landing with the remaining three bedrooms (master bedroom with en-suite shower room) located at the top of the property.

The flexible and spacious accommodation on offer would provide the successful purchasers with a wonderful family home, a fantastic self-catering option in a very buoyant holiday-letting market or as a real lifestyle and business opportunity as is currently used. The owners have indicated they would willing to include almost the entire interior contents at separate negotiation. Aldourie is a family run business with a high reputation in place. Following initial viewings, accounts may be available for potential purchasers at the owner’s discretion.

Aldourie benefits from garden grounds to three sides which further complement the property itself. Meticulously maintained, the front of the property is approached by paved steps and features an elevated lawn area, offset with mature hedging providing  privacy, and mature shrubs and bushes. Additional tiered steps provide an interesting platform showcasing a variety of colourful, potted plants. A paved pathway leads round to the rear to the paved patio and drying area. The remaining sloped grounds are laid to lawn and a generous garden shed with light and power also features.
