Property description

Fort William, the principal town of Lochaber, sits on the shores of Loch Linnhe and at the foot of Ben Nevis. The thriving and expanding town supports a wide range of shops, restaurants, leisure and recreational facilities and professional services, with good transport links to the south by rail, including a 'sleeper service' to London. By road, Inverness and the cities of the central belt are within a comfortable driving distance. The surrounding area is of great natural scenic beauty, with dramatic mountainous backdrops, steeped in history with an abundance of flora and fauna and is renowned for excellent outdoor sporting and leisure opportunities including shooting, fishing, mountaineering and skiing.

Lawriestone is a magnificent, traditional double bay fronted Victorian property enjoying a prominent position on Achintore Road, close to the town centre, with outstanding views over Loch Linnhe towards Treslaig and the hills beyond. The original house has been extremely well maintained and sympathetically upgraded over the decades, benefiting from double glazing and oil-fired heating throughout, whilst still retaining much of the original elegance synonymous with a property of this period, including ornate ‘Prince of Wales feathers’ cornicing, ceiling roses, an impressive staircase and generously proportioned rooms, with a notable feature being the magnificent entrance portico with imposing stone pillars either side. The extremely versatile accommodation extends over three floors with a suite of rooms to the rear that can easily be utilised as a self-contained one bedroomed apartment. The amenity is further enhanced by the glorious established garden which has been thoughtfully landscaped and meticulously cared for and has excellent garaging and workshop facilities.

Lawriestone has been successfully operating for many years as a highly profitable Visit Scotland 4 Star Guest House. As, first and foremost, Lawriestone was the family home the owners ran the Guest House to fit in with their lifestyle, accommodating 13 guests as their maximum occupancy level. Therefore, there is a great opportunity for any purchaser to expand the business with the potential to increase the occupancy to 19 guests, thus greatly increasing the turnover and profitability of this splendid property.
