Constructed in 1885, the Former Tower Guesthouse is a remarkable property that exudes the charm and elegance of the Victorian era. As a detached building in the Victorian style, it showcases a range of desirable retained period features that add to its allure. The high rise ceilings and skirtings, along with the Victorian style coving, create a sense of grandeur throughout the property. However, the most captivating feature is undoubtedly the wooden winding staircase adorned with beautiful stained glass windows. Spanning three floors, the accommodation of the Former Tower Guesthouse is generously laid out, offering ample space for comfortable living. With 8 en-suite bedrooms, two large lounge areas, a bathroom, WC, dining area, and kitchen, the property provides a versatile living arrangement that can be tailored to suit the preferences of the prospective owners. While the property retains its historic charm, it would benefit from renovation and maintenance work to restore it. The potential for transformation is evident from the moment you step inside. The bright and airy grand entrance sets the tone for the entire home, creating a welcoming ambiance that is carried throughout. In addition to the main building, there is a two-bedroom chalet on the premises. This presents an exciting opportunity for a "home and income" lifestyle, making it ideal for those interested in running a successful holiday let. The chalet's proximity to local amenities further enhances its appeal. The Former Tower Guesthouse represents a rare opportunity to own an original townhouse building in the heart of Stornoway. We highly recommend scheduling a viewing to fully appreciate the potential and unique offering of this property. *
