A beautifully appointed, architect designed home set in a sought after, private location and enjoying spectacular views over the Moray countryside and coast.

Wardend Side is a distinctive, architect designed family home, occupying a wonderfully rural position whilst remaining convenient for local amenities. The property has been imaginatively designed; the use of glass flooding the house with natural light and taking advantage of the unspoiled, far reaching views over the local countryside and coast.

Built in 2012, the property is generously proportioned, arranged over two levels and boasts a number of features which include underfloor heating, a heat recovery system, 4KW solar PV panels, solar domestic hot water panels and an air source heating system. This impressive family home combines exceptional modern living with breath-taking scenery, creating a property truly at one with its surroundings.

Approached by a gated driveway through landscaped, tree-lined gardens, there is ample off road parking for several vehicles as well as a double garage with remote doors. The entrance vestibule leads to the bright and airy accommodation which flows particularly well and is perfect for both modern living and entertaining with large open spaces, vaulted ceilings and large glass doors and windows.

The heart of the house is the contemporary dining kitchen, which includes a selection of wall and base storage units, integrated appliances and walk in larder. Flooded with light, glass doors open up directly onto the rear terrace and the large dining/sitting area with hardwood flooring and a Stovax wood burning stove. There is a sauna, boot room, integral garage, utility room and a beautifully appointed shower room with wc, wash hand basin, walk in shower, heated towel rail and floor tiles. The lounge, complete with Stovax wood burning stove, has been designed to maximise both natural light and the view and cleverly allows light to spread to other parts of the house.

A carpeted staircase leads to a magnificent galleried mezzanine sitting area which is the perfect place to relax, unwind and take in the stunning views. The Master bedroom suite has a balcony, dressing room and en suite. There is a guest bedroom with en suite, and a further two bedrooms. The family bathroom has a Jacuzzi bath, velux window, wc, wash hand basin, wall and floor tiling and a walk in shower.


The grounds of Wardend Side are a particular feature of the property. The gardens are extremely private, laid to lawn and bounded by mature trees, plants and shrubs. The house is surrounded by decked terracing and there is a BBQ area for the summer months as well as outside lighting. There is a shed and a wood store to the side of the property.


The property enjoys a fantastic rural position, yet is convenient for local amenities and is just a short distance from Elgin. Primary schooling is available nearby with secondary schooling in Elgin and private education at Gordonstoun Independent School.

Wardend Side is the ideal retreat for a quiet stress free lifestyle, with some of the finest scenery in the region. With its miles of white sandy beaches, sand dunes and Moray’s resident population of bottle-nosed dolphins, the scenery is quite spectacular. For the sporting enthusiasts the area offers a host of activities including hill walking, water sports activities, white water kayaking, fishing and golfing.

Elgin, the administrative and commercial capital of Moray has a long and fascinating history. Elgin Cathedral, known as the Lantern of the North, was established in 1224 by Alexander II as the seat of the Bishopric of Moray. Other attractions include Pluscarden Abbey, the Biblical Gardens within Cooper Park, Spynie Palace and Elgin Museum. There are also a range of local amenities at Moray Leisure Centre including swimming, skating, curling and squash, a local cinema and a selection of local distilleries. The property is located only 31 miles away from Inverness Airport which is the air gateway for the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. The property is conveniently located off the A96 providing easy access to both Aberdeen and Inverness. Both Inverness and Elgin provide extensive retail parks and shopping centres as well as many entertainment, cultural and leisure activities.
