Say ‘Bella Casa’ to this lovely Italian-style house, writes Susan Welsh

When it was first built around 1850, Beechlawn House, a mansion at 20 Culdulthel Road in Inverness, would have been considered a very trendy property.
Its look is designed on the Italianate style of architecture, a style which began in the 1840s in England and was hugely popular during the Victorian era.
The fondness for this style of architecture, which offered a modern, more fanciful recreation of Italian Renaissance villas, even spread to North America where it was re-interpreted again.
Today, the mansion still looks impressive but is no longer a home for just one family as it has been divided into apartments, which means more people have the chance to enjoy its splendour.
Number 3 Beechlawn House, a sensitively modernised three-bedroom flat, is currently on the market at offers over £230,000.
For that asking price, you get a very stylish home, one that retains all the elegance and charm of the original design, but which also comes with all mod cons.
Recently modernised, access to the apartment is via a communal entrance hall. Flat 3 is on the first floor.
It features a stylish kitchen with fitted microwave, oven, induction hob and fridge freezer and oak units teamed with granite worktops.
From here, a stairway leads to a hallway, with laundry cupboard with plumbing for a washing machine.
The living room/dining room has a large bay window from where there are fine views over the front garden to be enjoyed.
This room also has an attractive fireplace and gas fire.
The master bedroom has a partly coombed ceiling and spectacular cityscape views over the Ballifeary area of Inverness and benefits from an en suite shower room.
There are two further bedrooms – one double and one single, and a family bathroom with shower bath, WC and sink.
There’s also a home office/reading room.
Outside, there are generous grounds, extending to around 0.452 acres, mainly laid to lawn and fringed by mature trees, to the rear of the main house.
Although sitting in a tranquil and private setting, the house is within easy walking distance of Inverness city centre, which has a great range of shopping and leisure facilities along with a thriving music and arts scene.
