Built in 1900, this delightful one-bedroom cottage is of traditional construction and despite its’ manageably sized interior, offers plenty of space, especially in the living room and kitchen. With gas central heating and a south-facing aspect to the front, 26 Moray Street offers a comfortable and practical small home for a single person or couple. Located close to the Moray Firth and the River Lossie, the cottage enjoys a peaceful location away from the town centre, making it an ideal commuter property for someone who works in nearby Elgin, just four miles away. Typical of cottages of this age and style, the property is entered directly from a quiet road off the main throughway. The entrance also benefits from a small hallway, which offers privacy. The living room is satisfyingly cottage-like and is decorated in soft colours with white joinery, emphasising the space and light. The slightly sloping ceiling lends height and character, and its longer proportion means there is length for a dining/work table or desk.
A convenient rear hall opens to the newer extension with a fabulous, spacious kitchen overlooking the generous garden. The kitchen is elegant and contemporary, with plentiful white push-door cabinets, a wooden-style worktop, and stainless-steel appliances. The bedroom is prettily shaped and nicely decorated, with an area of built-in open clothes storage offering extra space. For those with an eye for design, this bedroom provides further exciting options with several space-making arrangements, using on-trend aesthetics and furniture styles currently popular within smaller homes to create an attractive, relaxing and practical retreat. The shower room is designed and finished in white, creating a clean, light-filled space. It has a glass-walled open shower enclosure, WC, and wash hand basin.
The garden is accessed from the rear hallway. Opening onto a large patio area, the garden is enclosed with timber fencing, with a small stone wall to one side, giving it a delightful rustic feel. The main area consists of an extensive lawn with two mature fruit trees. Beyond the timber fence at the rear lies another area of grass which could be utilised for many purposes. This area also has the considerable benefit of two off-street private parking spaces, a highly prized feature in properties of this age and style. At 37 m2, the delightful property is compact in some areas but with that comes incredible charm and the opportunity to exercise an interest in design. Its lovely setting and pleasant layout make this a small home with phenomenal potential and it is sure to be very popular, especially with commuters looking for their first step onto the property ladder.
Lossiemouth, affectionately known to many as simply ‘Lossie’, is a picturesque coastal town in northeastern Scotland’s Moray council area. With a population of about 7,000 and a world-famous RAF base, this town is easily reached by the A96. Situated 43 miles from Inverness and just five miles from Elgin, Lossiemouth offers an easy commute and is just over an hour from Aberdeen. It is known for its pristine beaches, rich maritime history and wildlife and its culture is traditionally Scottish, especially for music and food. Historically, Lossiemouth thrived on fishing and shipbuilding, but recently, it has evolved into a popular tourist area. Its harbour, scenic coastal walks and the Covesea Lighthouse and visitor centre are important landmarks that attract people from all over, making it an ideal locale for those with tourism-centred enterprises.
There are many cultural and recreational events, including the Lossiemouth Seafest during the summer. There is excellent fishing and two golf courses, including championship level. Lossiemouth has many local services, including small supermarkets, local stores and independent shops and restaurants. There is a doctor’s surgery and a primary and secondary school. More comprehensive services can be found in Elgin. For those drawn to the enchanting blend of history, leisure, scenic beauty and within commuting distance of city-based employment, Lossiemouth stands out as an exceptional choice. It offers both the tranquillity of seaside living and the accessibility to Scotland’s landscapes.
