Viewed from the exterior, 49 Woodside Drive presents an elegant, almost minimalist detached dwelling that is neatly fronted by a single garage and front lawn and which fits seamlessly into the quiet country lane.
On entering, however, the property evolves into a glamorous entrance hall that expands into open-plan, beautifully decorated spaces that belie the simplicity and scale of its kerbside view.
With a predominately grey and white palette, the spacious living and dining area is a delightful and tasteful introduction to the property. With generous proportions and eye-catching decor, including facing walls in an attractive and high-quality grey slate effect paper, the living room is large and sumptuous providing enough space for quantities of comfortable furniture. This is enhanced by the open-plan dining area accessed through a wide opening, allowing the living room to be filled with natural light from the sunroom beyond.
With glass walls on three sides and attractive tartan paper on the fourth, the sunroom has an attractive view of the garden and local woodlands and a south-facing aspect. The sunroom opens directly onto a well-maintained deck and patio.
Accessible from the hall and the dining room, the kitchen complements these spaces very well. A striking double L-shaped layout and streamlined cabinets in a soft grey create a luxurious and modern setting, with touches such as stone effect wall coverings offering warmth and a feeling of texture.
Pristine white worksurfaces are elevated with touches of contemporary tiling on the walls and complemented by details such as copper handles and taps, which capture the attention to detail and small but significant touches found elsewhere in the property. This creates a unified aesthetic and highlights the care and consideration this home has been treated with.
These superior standards of design and layout result in a property that feels much more spacious than its already generous 105m2 interior space, this is very apparent in the three delightful bedrooms and family shower room. Again, stylishly completed in neutral tones and featuring good quality wall coverings and finishes to suit the individual light and aesthetic of each space, the three bedrooms are simply but elegantly decorated, and all of them are unique.
The principal bedroom has a glossy wardrobe and mirrored surfaces, complemented by a glamorous grey tiled en-suite shower room with high-end sanitaryware, including a large white vessel hand basin, WC, and glass shower enclosure. The two smaller bedrooms are also sumptuously appointed, with even the smallest generously and elegantly arranged.
Outside, the south-facing garden features a charming summer house and bar. A sloping lawn and rockeries rise to the rear of the garden, presenting a view of the neighbouring woodland beyond, and its mix of newly planted and mature trees.
With such rich interior detail, excellent use of space, and a large and attractive garden, 49 Woodside Drive offers a fabulous opportunity for a family seeking a desirable and elegant home to walk straight into.
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, as well as 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.
