This outstanding 136 m2 detached house is on a corner site close to the centre of Tain. Constructed in 1960, 1 Moss Road is a beautifully decorated and substantial family home with large, attractive rooms and an elegant, mature garden.

The property is on a quiet road and is accessed via a tarmac drive leading to a single garage. Areas of rockery and lawn are enclosed with low stone walls, creating a welcoming entrance that lends to the traditional style of the house from the street view. Once inside, however, the house presents as a magnificent contemporary home decorated with a pristine palette, first noticed from its spacious vestibule and stunning hallway finished in white with graphite-painted joinery.

The dramatic living room extends to the rear of the property, and a large picture window provides substantial south-facing light. The room has hard flooring in grey tones and features ultramarine blue walls. A cylindrical wood-burning stove with wide stainless steel flue creates a striking focal point, and a pair of sliding glazed doors lead to a sheltered patio area.

The open-plan kitchen and dining room has been exceptionally well-designed. The large dining area is to the front of the property, opening into a fabulous contemporary kitchen space fitted with graphite cabinetry and island. The kitchen has a U-shape layout, with flush doors and concrete-style work surfaces. Double-inbuilt ovens and a large gas hob with black glass splashback create a space that is as practical to use as it is fabulous to look at. A generous utility room is to the rear of the kitchen and provides access to the garden.

The ground-floor bedroom is simply but elegantly decorated, with a papered feature wall and a coombed area creating a space for free-standing furniture and lending additional character.

The family bathroom is beautifully designed. Black metro tiles surround the clean-lined bath, and a large, curved shower enclosure is finished with grey marble-style panels. The room has a contemporary WC and a wash hand basin set into a vanity unit.

The grey carpeted staircase is bifurcated and finished with graphite balusters, leading to a beautiful galleried landing and two large bedrooms. Both of these rooms are delightful and light-filled, with great views. The first is painted white with images on two walls; this room is L-shaped with a built-in cupboard and a coombed ceiling. The second bedroom is neatly decorated in deep blue and has one wall finished with chalkboard paint. This generously sized room has a large window and a coombed ceiling further enhancing its charming looks.

The first-floor cloakroom has a WC with a wash hand basin and vanity unit.

Of particular note is the mature garden. A sheltered, paved patio area opens into a timber-fenced and well-kept lawn and several regions of established planting, including small trees, herbaceous borders and shrubs. The single garage and storage space are accessible from the garden.

This is clearly a property that has been treated with a great deal of care and love and is full of superb features and touches. Its location in a desirable part of the Highlands makes it especially attractive. It offers a charming but exceptional contemporary home for a small family and is expected to be extremely popular. Early viewing is recommended.
