This tidy detached property is well-presented and sits on a substantial area of ground which, with the relevant permissions, offers great potential to expand or renovate the existing building. Given the extent of the ground, there is also an opportunity to use the generous and elegant space to create an entirely new sustainable home in a desirable Highland town.
Built around 1965, the Dorran-type house is of non-standard pre-cast reinforced concrete and is not mortgageable. The house itself is neat and attractive, and with its generous proportions and neutral-coloured decoration, the house is further enhanced by its well-lit position, typical of properties and sites which are close to the sea and areas of open land. This is especially evident in the sizeable l-shaped living and dining room which benefits from three large windows, each giving different views of the garden and surrounding neighbourhood.
The three bedrooms, one of which is used as a craft room, are generous and neatly decorated. These also have great views across the garden and benefit from good natural lighting. The two larger rooms have useful built-in storage. A long hallway is fitted with several built-in cupboards. A comfortable shower room is neatly presented and fitted with a generous shower cubicle with a rain head. There is a comfortable and well-furnished kitchen with a view of the delightful garden and lawn. The kitchen leads to a vestibule and a timber ramp into the garden which has been carefully planted and maintained. There are several trees and many well-kept shrubs, along with large, lovingly maintained areas of lawn and paving. The substantial garden is enclosed with timber fencing and contains a small storage shed.
The property is at the end of a long road in an established residential area; 62 Merryton Crescent, however, is in a delightfully quiet and private location due to its desirable cul-de-sac position. With modernisation and upgrading, it is in itself, a comfortable house that has a beautiful garden and which, with the proper attention, would make a pleasant home. However, given its generous site, and its desirable location, there is the added potential – along with the rare opportunity – to erect a completely new sustainable home in a beautiful but quiet part of a traditional Highland town.
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 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. Nairn is within easy reach of many world-renowned attractions such as Culbin Forest, Cawdor Castle, The Findhorn Foundation, and the Logie Estate. Closer to Nairn town centre, you can enjoy museums, art centres, watersports and two 18-hole 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. There is a secondary school, primary schools, doctors, a hospital, community and leisure centres, and several places of worship. Hospitality, retail and agriculture are important forms of employment in the area. With its close-knit community and its popularity with holidaymakers from all over the world, Nairn town centre has an energetic, lively feel enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
