Situated on the banks of the idyllic River Nairn, this charming late Victorian cottage is superbly presented and offers a wonderful home for a couple or small family. Impeccably finished and with modern features and design standards, 61 Harbour Street has been opened up to create an extensive ground floor that is spacious and contemporary. It also retains many of its key attributes, including deep-set windows and a magnificent stone fireplace fitted with a modern wood-burning stove which supplements the gas central heating. The cottage makes complete and practical use of its 74 m2, with the entrance leading straight into the living room and the open-plan kitchen just ahead, ensuring the property is well-utilised and comfortable.
Decorated in soft grey and white and with a carpeted floor, the living room has three deep windows facing the street and a shelved alcove. There is room at one end for comfortable furniture around the stove, but the length of the space also allows for a small dining area closer to the kitchen. The finishes and fittings in the kitchen, including the appliances, are brand new and beautifully designed, with multiple floor and wall cabinets in the softest grey palette. A grey wooden worktop and stainless-steel touches add great aesthetic style and every corner of this L-shaped layout has been put to practical use but in a way that retains a sense of space and elegance.
A clean-lined, fully tiled shower room is finished in grey and features a large walk-in shower enclosure, a generous vanity unit and counter space, a wash hand basin and a WC, and a large chrome ladder radiator.
The dog-leg staircase is an attractive feature in its own right, it is carpeted in grey and has a glass wall, ensuring the space remains well-lit. The landing has interesting shapes and alcoves and leads to two delightful bedrooms. The principal bedroom is generously proportioned and has a shelved alcove, with a deep window to the front of the house and a large triple-door mirror wardrobe. The small bedroom is ideal for a child or could be used as a home office, craft, or games room if they are more suitable for the new owner. Both rooms feature attractive coombed ceilings, and joinery has been carefully arranged to reflect this, emphasising the fabulous attention to detail throughout the house.
61 Harbour Street is an outstanding property that is both beautiful and practical. It has been fully refurbished and finished with exceptional attention to detail and design standards. Given the quality of its renovation, its stunning riverside location, and the proximity to the Moray Firth, the centre of Nairn, and the easy commute to Inverness and Elgin, this property will be popular. Early viewing is therefore recommended.
