SITUATION
Melville House is on a peaceful residential street in Nairn with views over the links to the Moray Firth and Easter Ross.

Nairn has long been popular with tourists, attracted by its mild climate and long sandy beaches. Today it is a thriving centre with a good range of shops and amenities, including a railway station, and excellent leisure facilities with 2 championship golf courses, a marina, swimming pool and tennis courts. Nairn also benefits from the establishment of super-fast broadband. Inverness is within easy reach and has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with several flights per day to London, as well as regular flights to Europe.

The Moray coast is famous for its mild dry climate and beautiful coastline and the countryside offers a range of leisure and sporting pursuits, including the Cairngorm and The Lecht Ski Centres which are both under an hour’s drive away.

DESCRIPTION
Melville House is an early Victorian detached residence built at a time when Nairn first became a popular holiday destination. For several years, the house was run as a hotel, but when purchased by the current owners in 2006 it reverted to a family home. Considerable improvements have been made which introduce the comforts of modern living whilst retaining the grandeur of the house and preserving original features. The work carried out includes timber replacement wooden, double glazed sash and casement windows, roof insulation, new boilers in the main house and flat, reconfiguration of some en suite shower rooms, a new kitchen, new radiators, and a new double garage with full-height loft storage space.

The integral first floor flat provides generous accommodation in itself and this, combined with the versatile layout of the main house, offers the opportunity to provide tourist or residential letting options with owners’ accommodation.
