Located in the pleasant residential area of Achareidh, this delightful property has an unassuming air from the kerbside. Once inside however, the interior keeps unfolding to reveal more and more unique features. Constructed in 1975, the property is approached via a tidy blockwork drive and a rectangular lawn. The entrance opens into a vestibule which leads straight into a spacious living room. Finished with a soft mocha wall covering, the room has an opulent and luxuriant air. This is complemented by a feature wall cheerfully decorated with birds on the chimney breast. The white mantelpiece adds to the fresh feel of the space and glazed doors enhance the light. The first surprise of note is the kitchen, which is delightfully airy and inviting. It is decorated in grey tiles with a stone-effect work surface arranged in a wide U-shape layout, which finishes with a convenient breakfast bar. Cabinets that extend all the way to the ceiling add to the feeling of height and their white panelled surfaces lend a point of difference, giving it a unique and attractive edge. Strip tiles behind the hob interact with the overall design, lending a stylish touch to this welcoming space.

The four bedrooms are delightful, the bird theme carries through into the principal bedroom with a pretty wallpaper in green and pink on the feature wall. White joinery and doors on the built-in wardrobe complement the pale mushroom palette used elsewhere in the room. The second bedroom overlooks the garden and is gloriously pink with a richly detailed galaxy-style wall covering. This is clearly a very bold and defined style which complements the available light and layout. However, given its northwest-facing direction, almost any colour scheme could work equally well in this space. A slightly L-shaped layout also provides a cosy and private sleeping area, leaving plenty of room for a desk or dressing furniture. A third bedroom is nicely proportioned and also overlooks the garden. This has potential as a workspace or a child’s bedroom.

The family bathroom is fully tiled and has a shower enclosure, a bath, a white WC, and a wash hand basin. Although simply decorated and fitted, this room also has a sense of space. The real surprise of this property is on the first floor, a white balustered staircase leads to a large open space finished in greys, with cupboards lining the eaves and a deep area that could be designated as seating beneath the skylight. This fabulous room extends across the top of the property, finishing with a window on the gable end. Practical and unique, this lovely room offers huge potential as a family room, large bedroom, or work or hobby space.

Just a short distance from the kitchen, a blockwork outbuilding, currently used as a gym, extends from the garage, creating an ideal space for a workshop. The garden is generously sized and mostly laid with lawn. Simply arranged and enclosed with timber fencing, with a garden shed at one end, it has considerable scope for zoning into areas for decorative planting, vegetable gardening and entertaining. Its fabulous proportions also allow for the easy introduction of other structures, such as a summerhouse or patio, if desired. With an interior space of 92 m2, a large garden, and a fantastic first-floor space, 20 Wyvis Drive is a wonderfully playful and charming house that would make a beautiful home for a family, especially one that seeks space to explore their creativity. Early viewing is advised.
