Bridge View was completed in 2010 and is arguably one of the finest houses in the city. It was designed by highly regarded Elgin based architects Ashley Bartlam and was built by the previous owner using skilled local tradesmen. Sitting in an elevated position with fine views over the River Lossie, the house is constructed using a timber wood-framed kit with the use of Hopeman dressed stone under an attractive two toned pitched slate roof. Bridge View was completed to an exemplary standard and provides flexible and spacious family accommodation over two storeys. From the slabbed entrance with chrome handrails, the house exudes quality at the very first impression. The light and airy hall has oak flooring and an attractive sweeping staircase to the first floor. Internal windows and a glazed door help share light with the impressive kitchen which has high quality wall and floor units, a polished granite worktop, a range of integrated appliances and a walk in pantry / store. A further astragalled door leads to the magnificent open plan living / dining / sun room. With an Oak floored area of approximately 90 m2, this is a wonderfully bright and spacious room and is ideal for large scale entertaining or simply enjoying family life. The lounge has large picture windows that overlook the garden whilst French doors lead to the patio. Also on the ground floor is a generously sized double bedroom with an ‘en suite’ shower room that also has a door into the hall. A study could also be used as a single bedroom if required whilst there is a good sized utility room, a WC / cloak room, a rear hall and a well-equipped integral garage. On the first floor, the spacious landing has a superb mezzanine level overlooking the reception hall. Doors lead to a splendid master suite with a large double bedroom with a private balcony, dressing area and an en suite bathroom with a stand alone bath, double shower and high quality fittings. Adjoining the master suite via an inter-connecting door is a nursery / 4th bedroom, a family bathroom and 2 further bedrooms. Each bedroom has built in wardrobes and the house has excellent storage space throughout including a magnificent floored loft accessed by a Ramsay ladder in the upstairs passage.
Bridge View has a wonderful bright and airy atmosphere and the room layout is such that it can be easily adapted according to individual requirements. It has a great many fine and interesting features including hardwood flooring, high quality kitchen and bathroom fittings, extensive built in storage (including the impressive floored loft), curved walls and a most attractive sweeping Oak staircase. Incorporating additional levels of insulation, the house is efficient to run and benefits from double glazing and LPG central heating.
Outside, the grounds extend to about half an acre and are bounded by the mid-point of the River Lossie. The garden is enclosed by a wall and fence ensuring privacy and includes a patio, areas of lawn and well stocked flower beds and borders. There is a greenhouse and a useful garden shed. Ample parking space for a number of vehicles is provided on a private driveway.
