Garden and Grounds
Sanquhar Road is one of the most desirable streets in Forres. The houses are mostly character homes. Delamere has an open outlook, looking out over Roysvale Park to the front. There are deep gardens to the front currently with mature trees and shrubs providing a great deal of privacy. A driveway to the side leads to a carport, garage and large shed, with a path leading to the rear of the house. At the side opposite the garage, there is a wooden greenhouse attached to the side of the home with a large paved patio area. The gardens to the rear are split into two distinct areas with a row of trees separating the area immediately behind the house from the area further back. The gardens are substantial and were previously used for growing and selling herbaceous plants. Immediately behind the house there is a lawn with a drying line. In the rear area there is an older poly tunnel measuring approximately 16m x 4m.
