Description

Tucked away in a quiet side mews and located just a few hundred metres from the beach, this charming cottage has exceptional character and many outstanding features found in properties of this age. Constructed of stone in 1900 and benefitting from well-organised living accommodation and a generous exterior space, this lovely home must be viewed early to avoid disappointment. Typical of coastal cottages of this style, the property is accessed directly from the street. Beautifully designed and decorated, the interior is finished to a high standard in a cohesive palette of white walls with wooden floors, reflecting its heritage as a rural home but with a modern twist that retains all its character and charm. An above-average EPC rating of C and its 45 m2 also make this a cost-effective property.

The cosy sitting room has coved ceilings and a shelved alcove, which lends additional character. With polished flooring and good proportions, it is a graceful space with a lovely ambience. The kitchen is well laid out with a galley arrangement and has space for a small dining area. It has a fresh, modern feel amplified by the use of grey and white and has an easterly-facing view to the rear.

The delightful ground-floor bedrooms are the epitome of charm. Both rooms have good proportions and are light filled. The first, smaller room has a deep window ledge and is close to the entrance; given its location and outlook, it also offers potential as a convenient home office or remote working space. The second bedroom is to the rear of the house and offers a good amount of space for a double bed and dressing furniture.

The shower room is finished in white with grey flooring and has a curved shower enclosure, wash hand basin, vanity unit, and WC. Outside are two separate spaces, including one elevated terrace laid with gravel and paving that has a generously sized summer house and timber shed. These distinct areas are enclosed by stone walls and fencing. 9 Allan Lane is a delightful, beautifully decorated and much-loved property. Its cosy space is suited to a single person or couple, or it would make a delightful holiday home for a small family. Early viewing is recommended.

ABOUT LOSSIEMOUTH
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.
