Property Summary

Sitting in a superb, semi-rural location just minutes from the village of Kinloss, the white beaches and coastal town of Findhorn and the thriving town of Forres, and with easy access to the A96 and transport links, 1 Mains of Struthers is a luxurious, 3 bed bungalow in a beautiful sandstone steading conversion of 6 houses. Built by Tullochs of Cummingston in 2010, the quality of this house is evident, from the positioning and flow, to the oak floors and underfloor heating throughout. Full of character, with wide arched windows facing towards the private, enclosed garden, oak floors, pine doors, a cathedral ceiling with exposed beams in the stunning kitchen and an exposed, lime-pointed wall with wood burning stove in the living room, 1 Mains of Struthers is a truly beautiful house with a lovely ambience.
