Property description

27 Academy Street, Elgin is a deceptively spacious, traditional detached property situated within easy walking distance of the High Street, bus and railway stations and in the catchment area of West End Primary School.

The property is believed to date from around 1911 and, internally, the proportions are as expected in a property of this age. There are some lovely period features including cornicing and an elegant staircase to the upper floor, and it is understood that the original panelling lies behind the plywood that has been fitted to many of the doors. The house is meantime all electric, although there is a gas supply to the property. The majority of the original sash and case windows have had double glazed units fitted and the remaining windows are secondary glazed.

Access to the house is by means of a roomy porch which is a morning sun trap. Double doors lead to the entrance hall with under stair cupboard and access to all downstairs’ accommodation and also to the garden. The sitting room is a beautifully proportioned room with large bay window, French window to the back garden and a window to the front, all with secondary glazing. It also has an open fireplace which, it is understood, has not been used in recent years. The large family dining room, with secondary glazed window to the front of the property, has an impressive deep cornice and an alcove with meter cupboard. The kitchen is spacious and can easily accommodate a table and chairs. It is fitted with a range of base units, walk-in larder and generous storage area with hot water cylinder. The Beko electric cooker, Hotpoint washing machine and lec fridge freezer are all included in the sale. A snug/study and a guest W.C. Complete the accommodation on the ground floor.

Upstairs, there is a large master bedroom with fitted dressing table and mirror, two fitted wardrobes and two fitted cupboards, a single bedroom overlooking the back garden, two further double bedrooms, both with generous wardrobes and other storage and one with a shower cubicle, and the family bathroom.

Outside, there is a small neat garden at the front and a path runs up the side of the property to a high gate leading to the fully enclosed mature garden to the rear with high stone walls, a lawn, flower beds and numerous well established shrubs. There is a large block- built shed which is accessed from the rear garden, and which is ideal for storing garden tools, and may be suitable for converting into a summer house. The single garage is in Alma Place and has off-street parking for a second car.
