Description

This outstanding detached house is ideally suited to a young or growing family and is located on a quiet residential development halfway between Culloden Battlefield and Cawdor Castle. The house was constructed in 2023 and boasts a generous interior space of 113 m2, which is well reflected in its spacious, light-filled rooms. Five solar panels and high-quality building standards are reflected in the excellent Band B EPC rating.

Located on a quiet site at the edge of the development, 22 Macleod Gardens has open views of the countryside, complemented by outstanding kerb appeal and a striking whitewashed and grey facia. The property has an elegant front garden and a sizeable block-paved drive and is entered through a timber vestibule. The living room is sumptuous, with light-coloured carpet and large expanses of double-aspect windows, including French doors leading to the patio. It is spacious and meticulously decorated in neutral colours, creating an elegant place for the family and guests.

The kitchen dining room is exceptional, with gorgeous deep grey-blue flush-fronted cabinetry, offset with striking copper details and white worksurfaces. Touches such as a graceful monobloc and pristine hob lend a modern yet homely feel to this very attractive space. The dining area features a delightful full-height narrow window with a deep sill that creates a striking focal point. The adjoining utility room opens to the garden and complements the kitchen with matching cabinets and fittings. The large cloakroom has a WC and vessel hand basin set on a vanity unit.

A stylish dog-leg staircase is accessed from the living room and is carpeted in the same colour as the ground floor. Opening onto a tidy landing with a charming area for seating or display, the first floor is an elegant and light-filled space that complements the rest of the house. The principal bedroom is attractive and long, with masses of natural light from a combined casement and roof window. Coombed ceilings and alcoves lend interest, and a large, mirrored wardrobe offers convenient storage. The ensuite shower room is tastefully finished in soft greys with a WC, a pedestal wash hand basin and a shower enclosure. Two further bedrooms are beautifully decorated in soft neutrals, with great views and integral storage with contemporary white-panelled doors. The bathroom is sumptuous, with a large bath with a shower over it, a WC and a wall-mounted hand basin. Soft grey tiles all around and high-quality materials complete the look, and a deep, mirrored recess provides a stylish display and vanity area.

Outside, a generously sized garden is laid with lawn and flagstones and is enclosed with timber fencing. This garden is simply arranged and offers enormous potential to create a beautiful space for entertainment, play and relaxation. 22 Macleod Gardens is a very attractive property in a prestigious rural location with good access to Inverness and Nairn. Its light-filled rooms, elegant spaces, and proximity to schools and enterprise areas make this a wonderful family home, and it is expected to be a popular listing.
