Halfway between Lossiemouth’s East and West beaches, Coulardhill enjoys a pleasant location just off the main area through town, giving access to shops and services but benefitting from a quiet residential setting. This deceptively spacious mid-terrace house was built in 1950 and offers a solidly constructed property typical of this era. Centrally heated and facing southwest, the house has a better-than-average Energy Efficiency rating of band C with the potential to improve this to band B.
Located on a quiet road, it has a small paved and gravel front garden, which opens onto a cheerful hallway that is finished with wallpaper and neutral tones. The living room is decorated in a neutral off-white with checkered wallpaper on one wall and has a double-aspect with views to the front and rear. This space offers a well-laid-out lounge area and a dining area at one end.
The kitchen is generously-proportioned and has a large window overlooking the garden. Currently laid out in an open U-shape, there is a selection of wall and floor cabinets and tiled areas of wall. The kitchen has a spacious footprint and some interesting features, including built-in storage and an area under the stairs that would make a convenient place for a table or breakfast bar. With a door leading to the garden and built in cupboards, there is excellent potential for a creative use of space, resulting in an attractive and practical kitchen.
Upstairs, there are two surprisingly large bedrooms. The principal bedroom is decorated in greys, and its two windows overlook the front of the house in the direction of the sea and the Moray Hills. With built-in storage and high ceilings, this is a very comfortable space with plenty of room for furnishings. The second bedroom is currently decorated in blue and also has storage. Overlooking the back garden, the bedroom enjoys a good deal of light and has plenty of corners and places to make the shape interesting.
The shower room is partly tiled and has a walk-in enclosure with an electric shower, WC, and wash hand basin.
Outside, the back garden’s boundary is timber fencing and a wall, with a fence and gate to the street behind. There is a timber shed to the rear of the garden. Laid with paving stones and gravel, the garden has the potential to be completely redesigned, particularly as there is space for a small greenhouse and raised beds or areas for decorative planting. There is parking near the front of the property.
37 Coulardhill is a lovely house that is full of potential and would make a pleasant home for a small family. There is considerable opportunity to upgrade and modernise the property, and even with the simplest decorative treatments, it will create a comfortable and enjoyable home.
Lossiemouth, affectionately known to many as ‘Lossie’, is a picturesque coastal town in northeastern Scotland’s Moray council area. With a population of about 7,000 and a world-famous RAF base, this town is easily reached via the A96. Situated 43 miles from Inverness and just five miles from Elgin, Lossiemouth offers an easy commute and is just over an hour from Aberdeen.
It is known for its pristine beaches, rich maritime history and wildlife, and its culture is traditionally Scottish, especially for music and food. Historically, Lossiemouth thrived on fishing and shipbuilding but recently it has evolved into a popular tourist area. Its harbour, scenic coastal walks and the Covesea Lighthouse and Visitor Centre are important landmarks that attract people from all over, making it an ideal base for those with tourism-focussed businesses.
There are many cultural and recreational events, including the Lossiemouth Seafest during the summer. There is also excellent fishing and two golf courses nearby, including one of championship level. Lossiemouth has many local services, including small supermarkets, local stores and independent shops and restaurants. There is a doctor’s surgery and a primary and secondary school. More comprehensive services can be found in Elgin.
For those drawn to the enchanting blend of history, leisure, scenic beauty and within commuting distance of city-based employment, Lossiemouth stands out as an exceptional choice. It offers both the benefits of seaside living and the accessibility to Scotland’s landscapes.
