Description

Located in a well-established and tidy residential area, 3 Abbey Crescent is a beautifully decorated family home with considerable character. Situated in Kinloss, only a couple of miles from Findhorn Bay, the property is in a location that enjoys a fabulous climate and several local areas of interest. Constructed in 1975, the house is accessed via a generous front garden that features a pretty, grey-painted pergola. Whitewashed and with architectural details finished in dark grey, the house has a tidy and elegant facia.

A small but elegant hall leads into a cosy living room decorated with an ochre-painted feature wall and another finished in grey and ochre horizontal stripes, emphasising the room’s length. The striking colour scheme creates a beautifully warm and welcoming space. The open-plan kitchen-dining room is delightful and can be accessed from the living room or the hallway. The dining area is painted a cool green, which perfectly offsets the warmth of the wooden-fronted cabinets. These are further elevated by the good amounts of natural light that fills the kitchen. A light-coloured breakfast bar wraps around to create a U-shaped layout that delineates a practical working area. With a wide floor space, the kitchen is beautifully finished and complements the dining area well.

Straight carpeted stairs lead to the four bedrooms, each individually decorated in striking and attractive colour schemes. The bedrooms all have good amounts of space and lovely views. The principal bedroom is finished in a dramatic raspberry on two walls, creating a vibrant but relaxed feel due to the discerning use of neutral colours used elsewhere in the room to soften it. A second bedroom is finished in a deep but delicate blue, again complemented by a taupe backdrop. This room has two windows and space that could be clearly defined as a play or desk area. Bedrooms three and four are decorated equally boldly, one in orange, the other in green. These are finished with good aesthetic consideration and work very well in their respective space. Both rooms have built-in cupboards. The family bathroom is fully tiled in stone-coloured tiles. It has a bath with a shower over it, a vanity unit and white sanitary ware.

The garden is enclosed with stylish painted timber fencing and is laid with grass and block paving. A large shed is at the back of the garden and there is access to the carpark beyond via a gate. At 114 m2 and with a good energy performance rating of C, 3 Abbey Crescent is not only spacious and practical but also a truly charming and beautifully decorated house. It offers a vibrant and welcoming home for a family, particularly one that enjoys proximity to the type of landscape, outdoor activities, and community feel that is abundant in the area.

ABOUT FORRES
Just 25 miles from Inverness and 10 miles from Nairn, the former Royal Burgh of Forres is an easily accessible historic town well served by excellent roads, rail and bus links, and air links via the relatively close Inverness Airport, which has regular flights to London, Bristol, Dublin and Amsterdam. Set between an iconic Scottish landscape and the beauty of the Moray Firth, Forres gives easy access to some exceptional and world-famous locations while retaining its own identity as a friendly, picturesque, community-focused town.

The centre of Forres is known for its uniqueness and has an abundance of independent shops and services, often with an eclectic and artistic edge. Its proximity to Findhorn Bay, renowned for its sailing and beach and the Findhorn Foundation make Forres an attractive area for visitors from around the globe. It is also known for its fertile landscape, aided by the unusually mild micro-climate in the area. With a population of 10,000 and growing, Forres is remarkably self-sufficient. There are doctors, dentists, a leisure and swimming pool in the town and several places of worship. Primary and secondary education is well provided and Aberlour House and Gordonstoun School are just 12 miles away. Tourism, retail, creative industries, hospitality and agriculture are important forms of employment in the area, making Forres a fabulous choice for locals and visitors.
