Property SummaryAn intriguing and individual stone-built, cottage-style home with a garden and outbuildings, a modern kitchen and bathroom.
Blending some modern interior design with traditional features and making the most of the space available, the property is only a short walk from Elgin Station and conveniently located for both the town centre and the Springfield Retail Park.
Moss Street is located a little south-east of the commercial centre of Elgin but with a short distance of both the railway station and the towns Springfield Retail Park, boasting both a Lidl and an Asda superstore with its own filling station, a branch of Matalan, Sports Direct and B&Q, Currys PC World, New Look and Sports Direct.
ScotRail Train services from the station just 300m from the property run regularly to Inverness and Dyce while frequent buses from nearby Maisondieu Rd connect with both the town centre and Dufftown.
Elgin itself is an historic and attractive town and home to a good selection of shops, bars, banks, pubs and restaurants. Other attractions include the Moray Playhouse, a leisure centre, the cathedral and landmarks including Lady Hill, Cooper Park and walks along the River Lossie. The beaches of the famous Moray coast are also no more than six miles away as the crow flies.
The stone-built cottage is access via a head-high gate from Moss Street which opens onto a flagged passageway leading along the side of the cottage to the external door. The path continues between outbuildings and then on to the rear garden.
Here, a raised lawn is accessed via rustic stone steps and a latched gate and enclosed by stone walls and timber fencing. A mature apple tree, shrubs and plants offer both colour and shade while the private and secluded garden also includes a timber she, a separate double-doored summer house with ox-eye windows, two apples tree and a plumb tree. There is also external water tap and electrical sockets.
The front door opens onto a small reception hall with stairs ahead, an internal door to the kitchen/diner to the left and another to the right opening onto the living room.
The well-appointed kitchen/diner, which is a Riverside oak kitchen, has been fitted with a solid oak floor, complemented by wooden base and wall units in a U-shape above and below black, marble worktops. The cottage feel of the property is further enhanced by an Aga-style range with double hob and oven fitted beneath an extractor with marble splashback to match the work surfaces. There is also a Belfast-style sink with a chrome mixer tap beneath windows overlooking Moss Street. However, more modern touches include space for an American-style fridge freezer, fixtures and fittings for a wall-mounted TV, a deep-blue feature wall with up-lighters and hanging tear-drop lighting offering illumination after dark. The kitchen also has integrated dishwasher and washing machine. A door from the kitchen also leads to the downstairs loo - complete with hand basin and intriguing, bird-shaped mixer tap.
The lounge is also fitted with a solid oak wood floor with a striking feature wall centred by an authentic working open coal fire with a black marble hearth. Additional warmth in the winter months is provided by two, wall-mounted radiators. Plenty of light floods the room from windows overlooking the rear garden and the side of the house although additional light after dark is provided by a chandelier-style light fitting. But, once more, the room blends more traditional elements with fixtures such as fittings for a wall-mounted flat-screen TV above integral shelving, ideal for games consoles and satellite boxes.
The stairs rising to the first floor lead to a landing with double bedrooms to the left and the right both fitted with carpets and wall-mounted radiators, the master also including twin integral wardrobes with floor-to-ceiling, sliding, mirrored doors and fittings for another wall-mounted TV.
The house bathroom is also located on the first floor and includes matching, stone-effect floor and wall tiles, a hand basin fitted within a storage unit and with a washstand above the dual-flush WC with a concealed cistern. There is also a large mirror illuminated by recessed LED spotlights and a white panel bath with electric shower and splash-screen adjacent to an internal door to the airing cupboard. The bathroom also features a jacuzzi bath tub.
