Property Summary

Situated in one of Elgin’s most desirable locations, this attractive and traditional south-facing semi-detached villa offers spacious family-sized accommodation, and enjoys lovely views across Elgin and south towards the hills of Birnie in the distance. Conveniently situated within the West End, the property is well placed for access to the wide range of amenities and facilities available in the area, including West End Primary School and Elgin Academy, Dr Gray’s Hospital, the railway station and Inverness Airport bus stop, shops, eateries, leisure facilities and the town centre. Located nearby is Gordonstoun, as well as the Forces’ bases at Kinloss and RAF Lossiemouth, and the beautiful Moray Coast and Speyside.

Offering generously proportioned accommodation throughout, Fidra has been upgraded and modernised by the current owners, including an open-plan dining kitchen and the addition of a utility room. The partially-floored attic gives considerable further storage space. With a property of this age, the many traditional features one would expect have been retained, including beautiful cornicing, panel doors, an ornate bannister and fireplace surrounds, whilst enjoying the modern benefits of double glazing and gas central heating. In excellent decorative order throughout, Fidra is likely to appeal to a wide range of prospective purchasers, especially those looking for a spacious family home with ample charm and character, and viewing is highly recommended.
