Property Description

Occupying a prime trading position, just minutes walk from the centre of the popular West coast town of Fort William in the Scottish Highlands, the sale of Dalkeith Villa offers an exciting opportunity to purchase an extremely attractive, detached period villa, set in mature garden grounds.

The accommodation comprises – Entrance vestibule and hallway with pitch pine staircase, lounge with decorative open fireplace, dining room, spacious kitchen/diner, two en-suite bedrooms and office, all on the ground floor. The first floor offers a further five en-suite bedrooms plus a single bedroom, whilst the second floor includes an attic room, cloakroom and store room.

With original features including plaster cornicing, a striking pitch pine staircase, sash and case windows and wooden doors with ironmongery fittings. The property has also recently benefited from the addition of modern en-suite facilities to a further 3 of the letting bedrooms.

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Centrally situated on a prime level site, close to the popular town of Fort William, Dalkeith Villa forms a most impressive, detached period villa set in the heart of this beautiful part of the West Highlands. Dating back to 1901, the property was extended in 1986 and offers deceptively spacious accommodation over three floors. In excellent order throughout, the majority of the letting rooms are located on the first floor, allowing for very spacious private accommodation for the owners.

Due to the current owners’ preference, the business has been run on a purely restricted, seasonal basis over recent years. A break from the business was taken in 2016 to carry out the installation of 3 brand new en-suite shower rooms, further enhancing this successful business. Benefiting from sash and case glazing, oil fired central heating and an impressive open fire, the business is run without the benefit of a website, thus ensuring serious potential expansion for the successful purchasers.

Accommodation on the ground floor comprises an entrance vestibule with wooden French doors and tiled flooring, spacious entrance hallway with pitch pine staircase, lounge with open fire, guest dining room, large kitchen/diner, two en-suite bedrooms and an office. The staircase, ascending from the entrance hallway to the first floor, leads to the five en-suite, guest bedrooms plus the single bedroom. The second floor is accessed by a further staircase and offers an attic room, cloakroom and store room.

Due to the size and location, the property would be ideally suited to a guest house as currently run, however the flexible accommodation would also provide an excellent family home. With the centre of Fort William just a short walk away, the property is perfectly placed for the local shops, supermarkets, restaurants, railway and bus station. The area, known as the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’ boasts a huge range of sporting and recreational activities including skiing at nearby Nevis Range, fishing, sailing, hill walking and biking to name but a few.

At the owner’s discretion and following initial viewings, accounts will be available to seriously interested parties.
