Property Summary

20A Urquhart Street is a stunning Grade-C listed town house that has been recently entirely renovated. With a lovely ambience, this welcoming home is packed with original features, yet modernised to meet the comfort requirements of today’s living. Situated a few seconds from the Grant Park and a couple of minutes from the High Street with 3 double bedrooms (1 en-suite), sitting room, kitchen, laundry and a bright, tidy “close” garden, 20A Urquhart Street could be a fantastic home for a family or a couple who want a “lock-up-and-go” type of property. In 2021 it was completely rewired, with new gas central heating, kitchen, bathrooms and completely repainted.


Entering through a timber door, half-glazed with a glazed side panel into the hall. The bright hall provides access to the sitting room, downstairs bedroom,  laundry and stairs to upper floor. Radiator. Wall-mounted coat hooks.

Sitting/Dining room (4.2m x 4.2m)

A lovely dual-aspect sitting room with windows to the garden and to Urquhart Street. The original fireplace has been renovated to provide a beautiful stone-feature to the room with a wood burning stove inset to provide a beautiful focal point to the room. A flat screen TV has been installed above the stove, with a natural wood mantlepiece below. The original sash-and-case windows have shelves below with feature cornicing along the ceilings. Two of the walls have been artfully restored to the original plasterwork and clear-coated as a feature, reminiscent of a city loft apartment. Wall mounted uplighters. Vertical wall-mounted radiator. Open plan to the kitchen. Half-glazed door to hall.

Kitchen (2.7m x 2.0m)

A compact but well stocked modern kitchen with a wide range of grey floor and wall mounted units and a lovely wooden countertop contrasting with the white tile backsplash. Integrated AEG hob, extractor fan and dishwasher. The bowl-and-a-half sink with mixer tap sits beneath a window to the side with space for an under-counter fridge. Flat panel, wall mounted radiator. Wood-effect laminate flooring.

Bedroom 3 ensuite (3.2m x 2.8m)

With a window to the garden, this bedroom, which has also been used as a dining room, has an arched alcove to one wall with a shelf. Radiator. Door to en suite.

En suite (3.2m x 1.2m)

A bright shower room with a two-piece white suite, WC and basin. The contemporary elongated ceramic basin, with mixer tap, is set on top of a modern white cabinet unit with two drawers and an oak countertop with a large mirror with LED lights above. A walk-in glass shower cubicle spans the width of the room with wet wall. Laminate flooring. Extractor fan. Heated towel rail.

Under-stairs laundry (2.0m x 1.1m)

Clever use has been made of the under-stairs cupboard to provide a laundry space. With a laminate floor, shelf and wet-wall type back-splash, the cupboard has been plumbed for a washer/dryer and has electrical points and a light.

A beautiful 1880s staircase curves from the lower floor to the upper floor with the original wooden handrail and banisters. The upper hall provides access to the bedrooms with a large hallway cupboard containing the recently installed combi boiler and electricity fusebox while providing ample storage space. A lovely bright hallway with a window to the garden.

Bedroom 2 (3.2m x 4.3m)
A large bedroom with a window towards the garden close. The casement window has been renovated and adjusted to open completely into the room. Triple wardrobes with sliding doors provide substantial hanging and shelf space with further cupboard space above. To the side of the wardrobe are shelves. An original “press” with wooden door provides further storage with shelves. Original cornicing. A hatch, with pull down ladder, provides access to the considerable storage space in the loft space. An oak door opens to the Jack-and-Jill bathroom.

Bathroom (2.7m x 2.1m)
A really lovely bathroom, bright and spacious with a large, opaque, sash-and-case window providing ample light to this room. Containing a three-piece white suite comprising WC, P-shaped bath with shower screen and mains shower and basin. The round ceramic basin, with mixer tap, is set on top of a modern white cabinet unit with an oak countertop with a large mirror with LED lights above. Wet wall to the two walls behind the bath. Heated towel rail. Laminate floor.

Bedroom 1 (4.3m x 4.3m)
Lovely dual-aspect room with windows to Urquhart Street and the garden close.  The casement window has been renovated and adjusted to open completely into the room. An original “press” with wooden door provides storage with shelves.

Accessed through a hatch from Bedroom 2, via a wooden Ramsay-type ladder, the attic has been completely re-insulated and floored providing tremendous storage space.


20A Urquhart Street is in superb decorative order and has recently been completely repainted internally and externally. The close is accessed through a wrought-iron gate from Urquhart Street and is paved with mature shrubs. This spacious, bright garden measures approximately 21m by 3m and provides a quiet outside area to sit out.  A unique, modern bench has been designed and installed opposite the house. External tap and electrical point. Wall-mounted mailbox. Although the attached Duffus Cottage has access through the close, 20A Urquhart Street owns the length of the close.

Urquhart Street is a quiet, no-through road running between the Grant Park and Forres High Street. 20A is situated a few seconds from the park and a couple of minutes from the High Street. Primary and Secondary schools, cafes, shops, library, swimming pool and community centre are all within a few minutes’ walk.
