Property Description


Located in the heart of the desirable town of Fort William St Andrews House forms a most impressive, detached period property, set in spacious, mature private grounds with outbuildings. A former rectory, the property is late-Victorian and commands stunning views across Loch Linnhe to the countryside beyond.

Dating from 1880, St Andrews House is steeped in history and oozes an abundance of character and charm. This significant property offers flexible accommodation and presents various possibilities including use as a substantial family home with annexe, a guest house with self catering apartment or indeed revert the property to its former layout as two separate dwellings.

Property Description

St Andrews House forms a most desirable and imposing, detached period dwellinghouse, which over the years has been sympathetically refurbished and modernised to create a superb and impressive property, enjoying a most enviable, elevated position with stunning views over Loch Linnhe.

Designed by architect Alexander Ross and built in 1880, the property was originally the rectory and choir school for St Andrews church. In 1915 the building was divided into two dwellinghouses and sold as The West Side and The East Side. 2000 saw the two properties finally reunited, now forming one stunning property for sale.

In very good order both internally and externally, the property boasts a wealth of original features comprising pitch pine staircases, decorative windows, stone fireplaces, exposed granite stone and beams, as well as the original tiled flooring to the grand entrance hallway. Additions have been incorporated within the property including en-suite bedrooms and fitted kitchens.

The adaptable and spacious accommodation on offer could be used for a variety of purposes. The current owners previously run a very successful guest house business from the property, with additional self-contained annexe. However due to the flexibility of the property, St Andrews House could, with little change, be divided into two substantial independent properties once again with separate utility supplies and accesses already in place.

The property can be approached by either of the two private driveways. The mature and generous garden grounds are laid in the main to lawn, offset with gravelled pathways, mature trees, plants and shrubs with pleasant seating area taking in the elevated views which stretch over the town to Loch Linnhe and the hills beyond. There is a terrace of outbuildings which house wood stores, workshops and storage. The garage has been converted to a utility area, with hot tub and sauna included.

Ideally located just a short walk to the centre of Fort William, the property is well placed to take advantage of all the amenities the area has to offer. Locally, Fort William offers shops, supermarkets, restaurants, railway & bus station and a range of professional services as well as primary schools and a secondary school. The area also boasts a huge range of sporting and recreational opportunities and is known as ‘The Outdoor Capital of the UK’.
