Moyness Kirk is an outstanding Georgian property, dating back to the early 1800's, which has been imaginatively and thoughtfully transformed into a wonderful, contemporary family home.
The current owners have lovingly refurbished the property and the blend of traditional and modern, is both bold and glorious. Throughout the property, you will find some truly fantastic features and architecture, all seamlessly integrated with modern conveniences.
The building is of stone and slate construction and has two large Y-tracery, Gothic style windows which predominately face South, and provide an abundance of natural light.
The property is incredibly pretty, and its original look and exterior has been preserved, with no discernible clue as to what lies inside. Particular attention has been paid to design and style, to create an ultra-modern contemporary interior within the original walls, all of which is evident on setting foot into the broad and welcoming hallway. Numerous features include high ceilings, exposed stonework, oak flooring, underfloor heating, wood burning stoves, and stunning interior design, with the living space being arranged over three levels.
There is a wc/cloak and a utility room complete with stable door, floor tiles, sink, and a selection of wall and base storage units. The large downstairs double bedroom has two windows to the rear, exposed beams and comes with its own luxurious en suite which includes a wonderful Japanese Omi deep soaking bath and walk in shower. A door from the hallway leads into the exquisite open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area. The main focal point of this part of the house is the large windows which flood the rooms with natural light. The versatility and flexibility of the space is perfect for entertaining and also for cosy family occasions. The kitchen has a great selection of wall and base storage units, centre island, granite worktops, Falcon range and a free standing wood burning stove. The kitchen opens up into the large dining and sitting area. The original vestry is located off the kitchen and is used as a family/sitting room, with features including wood panelling, door to gardens and a Jotul wood burning stove.
The main staircase from the hallway leads upstairs to a magnificent landing and mezzanine which overlooks the dining kitchen below. There are three double bedrooms on this level, a linen cupboard and a large family bathroom. On the top floor the landing is currently used as a gym, which leads to a beautifully appointed Master bedroom suite, with walk in dressing room and a luxurious en suite bathroom.
Moyness Kirk is located near the attractive and historic village of Auldearn, only 6 miles from the centre of Nairn which is a vibrant Victorian town known for its dry, sunny climate and beautiful beaches. It has a good range of shops (including a large Sainsburys supermarket) and professional services as well as a museum, excellent hotels and restaurants. It also boasts its own Hospital and modern Primary Care Centre. The festival town also has a modern community centre and concert hall, a sports centre, tennis club, indoor swimming pool, bowling greens, a riding centre, a cricket pitch and a wide range of social activities.
The harbour is home to a small fishing fleet, marina and sailing club. In addition to the two Nairn championship golf courses, golf is also conveniently available at Royal Dornoch, Spey Valley and the Castle Stuart Golf Links. There is salmon fishing on the Rivers Nairn, Findhorn and Spey and shooting is readily available on local estates.
The beautiful Spey Valley with its Whisky trail and the ski slopes at the Cairngorms and The Lecht are all within easy driving distance. The city of Inverness provides a range of retail parks and supermarkets as well as many entertainment, cultural and hospital facilities expected of the Highland Capital. Inverness Airport has regular daily flights to London (Heathrow and Gatwick), Amsterdam, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and other UK destinations.
