Surrounded by fields and open landscape, 22 Loch Avenue enjoys a fabulous residential setting in this peaceful area of Nairn.
Less than a mile from Nairn Beach and the Moray Firth, this large, detached house creates an inviting presence with its edge-of-town setting and easy access to Nairn town centre, Inverness and the wider Highland countryside. Constructed in 1975, the interior belies its simple facia. A strong feeling of playfulness complements its contemporary design and offers a stylish home that blends well with its creatively designed garden.
The U-shaped kitchen is strikingly decorated with violet floor cabinets and white wall cupboards. Offset with a wood effect worktop, the kitchen is imaginatively decorated and combines practicality with pleasing aesthetics and has a fun and welcoming atmosphere. Adjacent to the kitchen, the hallway extends into the spacious, long living room. This room exudes a relaxed feel, featuring clean lines and a generous window overlooking the garden. Decorated in neutrals and further shades of violet, the living room is cosy and fresh and has a real sense of being somewhere to live in and enjoy. The adjoining conservatory, which currently serves as a dining room, has a fabulous south-facing aspect, ensuring this part of the property enjoys the sunny side of the street as well as offering a valuable indoor-outdoor space. The hallway also leads to a spacious cloakroom with white and grey walls and beech-coloured panelling, complemented by a modern WC and wash hand basin, the cloakroom is well decorated and practical.
The staircase is attractively carpeted in grey, and while attention is to be given to bannisters and railings, the white timber treads lead to three generous bedrooms and the family bathroom.
The first bedroom has lovely proportions, a charming view over the garden, and a small built-in cupboard. Its soft-coloured walls harmonise with the home’s aesthetic. The two additional bedrooms are spacious, one has built-in storage, an excellent garden view and an elegant ambience. The third bedroom, currently used as a music room, has a large built-in wardrobe and generous proportions.
A family bathroom has a substantial walk-in shower, WC and wash hand basin, and features a luxurious whirlpool bath lending a spa like setting to this comfortable space.
In keeping with the rest of the property, the garden is full of personality and is very attractive, with a large area of decking outside the conservatory, a lawn, herbaceous borders, a rockery and two timber sheds. There is also a delightful summer house with an area of decking for relaxation. Timber-fenced, the garden benefits from privacy and gives access to the single garage and a workshop.
22 Loch Avenue is conveniently close to schools and public transport and with a brand-new school being constructed in the area, this property will make a wonderful family home that can either retain its wonderfully eclectic feel or will equally make a striking contemporary residence.
Formerly a market town and Royal Burgh, Nairn is easily accessible by excellent road and links, as well as being close to three beaches, one of which has been recognised with a Blue Flag award for cleanliness.
The centre of Nairn is located 17 miles from the capital of the Highlands, Inverness and is just nine miles from Dalcross Airport, with regular direct flights to and from London, Bristol, Dublin and Amsterdam.
Located on the southern shore of the Moray Firth, the area became famous in the Victorian era for its easy accessibility, magnificent beaches and gentle sunny climate. These still exist today. More recently, the area has grown in popularity due to its outstanding golf courses, bustling town, varied shops and many creative enterprises.

Closer to Nairn town centre, you can enjoy museums, art centres, watersports and two 18-hole championship golf courses. There are many excellent restaurants and interesting shops. The harbour and promenade are popular gathering points during the many dark-sky events visible in the area, including the aurora borealis and spectacular meteor showers.
