CLOSING DATE SET FRIDAY 4 SEPTEMBER AT 12PM Unique opportunity to purchase a beautifully presented apartment, boasting a stunning beach front location in the highly desirable west end of Nairn. Constructed circa 1907, the original manor house was converted into four separate dwellings in the late 1950's. Each individual property enjoys a private area of garden, a garage, and shared ownership of the substantial communal grounds. A private gate at the bottom of the garden provides direct access to the beach and promenade. Only by viewing can one fully appreciate the idyllic setting and breathtaking views. Lovingly and tastefully restored by the current owners, the interior retains a wealth of original period features, reflecting the splendour of a bygone era. High ceilings, decorative cornice work, deep skirting boards, ornate fireplaces and fully restored sash and casement windows, to name a few. Bright and generously proportioned throughout, this fabulous apartment will appeal to those seeking a character filled home, and arguably one of the best views in Nairn.
Tarland is approached via a shared, tree lined driveway. The central door to the front elevation opens into apartment one. Beautifully restored to an exceptional standard, the grand entrance hall gives access to the formal lounge/dining room, kitchen/reception room two, bathroom, bedroom three, and the inner hall to the two sea facing bedrooms. Boasting three large windows to take in the open garden, sea and mountain views, the impressive lounge is a fabulous room to entertain or relax. Formerly the mansion drawing room, the original ornate open fire, a delightful alcove seat and an additional window seat, all add to the unique character. There is ample space for a large dining table and chairs. The hallway to the kitchen, benefiting from floor to ceiling fitted storage, leads through to the spacious triple aspect kitchen/second reception room. The kitchen is well appointed, with oak effect base and wall units for storage and granite counter tops. Integral appliances include and electric double oven, grill, ceramic hob, dishwasher, washing machine and extractor hood. There is space for a free standing fridge/freezer and a dining table. Double doors lead out to the private enclosed garden. A cosy sitting area, with a recently installed wood burner set on a tiled hearth, completes the room.
The inner hall provides access to bedrooms one and two, each sharing the beautiful bay window to the sea facing rear elevation. Both bedrooms are generously proportioned, with space for free standing furniture. Bedroom two benefits from an Edinburgh Press cupboard. Front facing double bedroom three, currently utilised as a study, features a window seat with storage beneath. Excellent additional storage is provided by way of a walk-in cupboard in the inner hall, a deep under stair cupboard in the main hall, and an additional cupboard in the entrance vestibule. The entrance vestibule also gives access to the WC. The recently fitted bathroom, boasting a cast iron slipper bath and a separate mains rainfall shower, completes the living accommodation.
Accessible from the kitchen, the private area of garden is fully enclosed by a timber fence. Mostly laid to lawn and planted with apple and plum trees, there is a patio area for outdoor dining or relaxation. The property enjoys wealth of different areas to enjoy in the external walled garden grounds to the rear. A duck pond, large expanse of lawn, bbq area and a sheltered loggia are just some of the delights. A gated path curves down to the bathing hut, promenade and beach. To the front, mature trees, shrub and flower beds border a large area of lawn. The property benefits from a large single garage with light and power, a car port, communal log store and a timber shed.
