Superb opportunity to purchase a unique home, filled with an abundance of character and charm. Constructed circa 1900 and tastefully extended, the property enjoys all the benefits of countryside living, yet is within easy reach of Forres, Elgin and the seaside town of Nairn. Only by viewing can one appreciate the proportions of the accommodation, finished to a high standard throughout. Set on a generous plot with views to the open fields at the rear, the property boasts immaculate landscaped gardens and a substantial garage with excellent conversion potential. Decorated in neutral tones, this fabulous home will appeal to a wide range of purchasers, including growing families, professionals and downsizers alike. It will also appeal to those seeking an ideal work from home opportunity, or a holiday base to enjoy all that the Highlands has to offer. Early viewing is highly recommended.
The front door opens into the entrance hall, giving access to the lounge, kitchen, bedroom three, and the staircase to the upper floor. Positioned to the front elevation, the double aspect lounge features an open fire and ample space for dining. Glazed doors lead through to a second reception room positioned to the rear. Boasting a wood burning stove set on a slate hearth and patio doors to the garden, the second lounge is a lovely bright space. The recently fitted shaker style kitchen features a great range of base and wall units, in addition to an electric Rangemaster cooker. Integrated appliances include a larder fridge, dishwasher and extractor hood. A door gives access to the utility/rear porch with space for free standing appliances, further storage, and secondary access to the garden. Additional storage is provided within the deep under stair cupboard. Ground floor bedroom three is a front facing double, with ample space for free standing furniture.

The bathroom is flooded with natural light, comprising a bath, corner shower, wash hand basin and WC.
Externally, the garden grounds must be seen to be fully appreciated. There are a variety of different areas to enjoy, including a patio for outdoor entertaining, pond and a beautiful rockery. Mostly laid to low maintenance gravel and paving and very generous in size, the garden offers excellent potential to extend the property. The top of the garden takes in stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Benefiting from three different sections, the substantial garage offers excellent workshop, art studio or additional accommodation potential. Two gated private driveways, accessible via a shared access lane to the side of the house, provide parking for several vehicles. The external log store is included in the sale.
