Property Description

SUPERIOR DETACHED VILLA – BELOW HOME REPORT VALUATION

Beaufort House forms an impressive detached villa located above the banks of The Caledonian Canal in the charming village of Fort Augustus, with sweeping views to the hills beyond. Dating back to 1906, the property was built for the local tailor, a Mr Munro and was originally used as both a dwellinghouse and shop. In excellent order throughout, the property has been lovingly maintained and upgraded in recent years to include new double glazing, oil fired central heating and full rewiring, whilst boasting original features such as panelled wooden doors, wooden floorboards, original door handles and brass finger plates. Due to the size and location, the property would make a spacious family home or, with the lucrative passing trade and full en-suite facilities, an ideal Bed and Breakfast opportunity. Previously run as a successful business until 2014, when the current owners retired, the business fixtures and fittings are available at separate negotiation.

Fort Augustus is a thriving village sitting at the end of Loch Ness in the picturesque Great Glen. Forming part of the chain to the Caledonian Canal, linking Fort William on the west coast to Inverness on the east, the locks in the centre of the village provide a popular tourist attraction. With its hotels, restaurants, shops and both primary and secondary schools, the area provides opportunities for access to an abundance of outdoor activities while the Great Glen cycle route, the Great Glen Way, the Caledonian Canal and Loch Ness are in close proximity.
