    About this property

    • 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.
