Property Summary

Tucked away in a wonderfully quiet enclave of houses at the edge of the eco-village near Findhorn, Bagend 222 and 223, The Park, are semi-detached 4-bedroom homes.  Filled with light with beautiful features throughout these lovely homes look out to a peaceful grassy area to the front with mature trees and the woods behind, just a few minutes’ walk from the wonderful, white beaches of the Moray Coast.

Being sold as separate houses with a unique configuration, Bagend 222 and 223 share a communal entrance with further entrances to each individual house. The communal vestibule has ample space for shelving for shoes and boots which follows through to an open hallway with a communal laundry, a storage room, and a shower room.  Individual doors then lead into 222 and 223.  Both houses have 2 further external doors making it feasible in the future that the communal entrance could be allocated to one of the homes with the other having their own private entrance, external entrance.

Alternatively, the combined homes offer an amazing lifestyle opportunity for someone to live in one and rent out the other. The current tenants have expressed interest in potentially staying if this was an avenue a purchaser was interested in. Likewise, the purchase of both houses together offers a superb multi-generational living opportunity.

 

The accommodation in both is identical with a large open plan dining/sitting kitchen and double bedroom on the ground floor with 3 further bedrooms and a bathroom on the upper floor.  The hallways have 2 shelved pantry cupboards.  One of which houses the electricity consumer unit.

Gardens and outdoor space

The houses sit in a quiet semi-circular enclave of houses on the edge of the woods, leading to the dunes, with all the amenities of The Park within a few minutes’ walk – cafes, shops, theatre etc. A footpath runs in front of the houses with a communal grass and tree area in the middle. Communal parking is available to the side of the gardens. Both houses have wrap-around gardens, with room for planting, raised beds and sitting out.

It is part of the Eco Village project linked to the Findhorn Foundation aiming to produce a low overall carbon footprint. A small wind farm provides a portion of the electricity needs for the community. The many programmes of the Foundation have recently restarted and generally include meditation offerings at each of the four sanctuaries, three of which are within a 3-minute walk.   The sky is big, the air is clean and the weather unusually sunny for the North of Scotland. The beach and ocean are a 15-minute walk through the woods and the dunes, or a short bike ride along the road through Findhorn Village.

Transport links by air and rail are close by. Car share schemes are available locally, and the flat terrain is ideal for cycling. Two organic veg box schemes are in operation and “The Phoenix” local shop stocks a wide range of organic produce. The Phoenix café was recently listed as one of Scotland’s best vegetarian restaurants in The Times and La Boheme pizzeria is always popular. The more widely known Universal Hall and Moray Art Centre offer wonderful live event and exhibitions.
