Less than a mile from the centre of Nairn and with easy access to the beach, golf club and transport routes to Inverness, 1 Darroch Place also enjoys the benefits of its quiet, well-presented residential location on the Achareidh estate. Well-maintained and neatly decorated in soft colours throughout, the property is filled with light and open-feeling spaces, which are emphasised by the white joinery and large windows. Occupying a prominent corner site with lawn wrapping around both sides to the front, a tarmac drive, and a single garage adjoining the garden at the rear of the bungalow, the site is open and well-provided with parking. The garage also has lighting, power and a vehicle inspection pit.

Constructed in 1972, the building has an attractive, partially harled, partially stone-clad facia, which gives it a pleasant, welcoming look from the kerbside. A white-painted porch opens into a vestibule and hallway. The large living room is covered in patterned paper with a baroque motif. It features a dark wood mantelpiece with a coal effect electric fire. Large full-height windows provide natural light from the south. The property’s 91 m2 is best captured in the fabulous open-plan kitchen-dining room. Lit from a large skylight directly above the kitchen area and with large patio windows, the space is bathed with light. The dining area is accessed from the hallway, with the kitchen sitting more demurely to one side but completely open. Expansive areas of marble-style worktops and splashbacks give the kitchen a clean and modern look and emphasise the scale. Ecru cabinets with flat surfaces, brushed chrome handles and deep drawers create a fresh, contemporary look without being too stark.

The three bedrooms continue the neutral theme, with occasional touches of wall coverings in softer hues, creating warm, inviting spaces. As is seen throughout the rest of the bungalow, the ceilings in the bedrooms feel slightly higher than average, which adds to the feeling of spaciousness. All rooms feature an element of built-in storage, and each is neatly decorated and carpeted. Finished in white and featuring a stand-alone shower cubicle, bath, wash hand basin, WC and chrome ladder towel rail, the bathroom is tiled in earth colours creating a warming and clean-lined space.

Outside, a large, paved patio extends across the width of the building and provides access to the garage. Areas of rockery and herbaceous borders provide space for ornamental planting and shrubs, creating a sheltered private exterior garden. Practical areas, including a drying green and storage area, are well provided. With an above-average energy rating of Band C and expansive spaces that allow for multiple uses and plenty of room for relaxation and entertaining, this home captures the best of its large corner site and abundance of natural light. 1 Darroch Place is an attractive and welcoming bungalow in keeping with its pleasant location. And its proximity to Nairn, public transport and nearby leisure activities makes this a wonderful home for people who enjoy entertaining family and friends.
