73 Easter Road is a comfortable home in a tidy residential area, formerly part of the RAF Kinloss Barracks. The village of Kinloss is a notable and attractive area, with the ruins of a 1000-year-old abbey nearby and one of the mildest climates found anywhere on this latitude. With a population of about 1500, the village is close and community-oriented, due in part to its heritage as a military settlement used to welcoming new people.
Constructed in approximately 1970, the house is entered via a large vestibule and into a well-proportioned hall. The open plan living-dining room is double aspect with windows at both ends making it feel light and airy. Painted in blue and white, the room is cheerful and has plenty of space for relaxation and family meals. The kitchen can be accessed either from the living-dining room or the hallway. The galley kitchen is comfortable and its wooden worktops and white floor and wall cabinets give it a friendly, homely feel, tempered by modern grey tiling. The glazed patio door provides access to the garden and with its adjacent window, ensures the kitchen makes the most of natural light. The ground floor is completed with a convenient cloakroom with a WC and wash hand basin near the front door.
Upstairs is decorated in simple neutral tones and has a generous landing. The three well-appointed bedrooms each have good amounts of space. The principal bedroom has two large built-in cupboards and the second bedroom has one cupboard, offering either convenient storage space, or the scope to remodel the rooms slightly if required, subject to approvals. The third bedroom is a little smaller but would make an excellent space for a young child or a dedicated office for someone working from home. A compact and practical family bathroom has a bath with a shower over it and white sanitary ware.
The garden is enclosed with timber fencing and is laid with gravel, paving and a small area of lawn. There is a small patio area, as well as a shed and access to the streets beyond via a gate. The garden offers a great deal of scope to redesign into an attractive contemporary outdoor space, most valuable in an area known for its comfortable climate. At 90m2 and with a good energy performance rating, 73 Easter Road has much potential, with opportunity for upgrading and modernisation. This is a lovely first property for a small family or couple.
