1 Longview is a most impressive, grade B listed townhouse that forms part of the former Longview Hotel which dates back to 1882. 1 Longview, as it is now, was renovated about 15 years ago to create a unique home. From the ground floor communal hallway (shared with one other property), a door gives access to a private spiral, stone staircase which leads up to the first floor and the door to 1 Longview. In the entrance hallway, directly ahead are stairs to the first floor, to the left is a W.C., while ahead and to the left is an eat-in kitchen. The kitchen has bespoke timber units, marble worktops and a Rangemaster electric cooker. Leading from the kitchen is a sitting room with a gas fireplace with a large and very ornate timber mantle. Adjacent to the sitting room is a good sized dining room/study/4th bedroom. Under the stairs is a good size storage cupboard housing the electric meter. On the second floor, there is a magnificent and generously sized sitting room with a fireplace housing a gas fire with a marble surround and a bay window which looks out over St Laurence Parish Church. Also on the second floor are two large double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, a further shower room and a linen cupboard. On the third floor there is a most impressive master bedroom which has a Juliette balcony and a turret. The master bathroom has a roll top bath and a separate shower. A laundry room with space for white goods completes the third floor accommodation. Useful storage space is provided in a cellar. The house has a great many fine period features that one would expect from a property of this age and quality including high ceilings with ornate cornicing and ceiling roses, fireplaces with stunning surrounds and carved timber handrail and balustrades. All of the rooms are very well-proportioned and a number of them have fine views over St Laurence Parish Church, Forres and beyond. Outside, there is residents’ parking to the rear of the property.
