Ravenswood is a handsome B listed house in the popular Crown conservation area of Inverness. Southside Road is regarded as one of the most prestigious addresses in the city, with its long, wide street and elegant houses set in generous, mature grounds and just a short walk from the River Ness, the cathedral, Eden Court Theatre and Bught Park sports facilities.

Set in beautiful, mature, landscaped grounds, Ravenswood has been sympathetically upgraded by the current owners to create a stunning family home retaining many period features. Extensive work has been carried out to the fabric of the house and this includes a new central heating boiler, upgrading the plumbing, refurbishing and draft proofing the windows, repointing of the stone work and new gutters and downpipes.

The elegant and stylish main reception rooms and formal dining room leading off the hall have been carefully modernised and retain traditional features such as deep skirtings, marble fireplaces, tall sash windows, picture rails, cornicing and ceiling roses. A door from the drawing room leads to the conservatory with leaded windows and doors to the patio. The dining kitchen has bespoke solid wood fitted units with high quality integral appliances, a Smeg two oven gas cooker and two oven Aga. An impressive staircase with a wrought iron and timber balustrade and spectacular, recently renovated stained glass window leads to the first floor with its beautifully decorated bedrooms and newly fitted bathrooms.

It should be noted that the property is now unfurnished.
