The Croft, 10 Institution Road is an impressive and very desirable town house located in one of Elgin’s most desirable residential areas. A substantial property built from stone under a slate roof, the house sits in a wonderful position within the Elgin South Conservation Area and is within easy walking distance of the town centre and a wide range of amenities. Spacious and very well-appointed accommodation is provided over three storeys. On the upper ground floor, a hallway leads to a magnificent dual aspect living room with a bay window, open fireplace with wood burning stove and hardwood floor. Opposite is a sitting room, also with a fireplace with gas fire and bay window and a dining room which also has an open fire. Completing the upper ground floor is a WC / cloak room and the kitchen / diner which has a range of wall and floor units. From the hall, stairs lead to the first floor from where the landing leads to a bathroom and five generously sized bedrooms, 3 of which have en suite facilities. The two south facing rooms with bay windows enjoy wonderful views over Elgin to the Brown Muir beyond. A lower ground floor has a utility / laundry, shower room, a games room / office, and 4 bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room. The Croft has many of the features one would hope to find in a property of this age and character including tall corniced ceilings, fireplaces and working timber shutters. The south facing bedrooms and the principal reception rooms are particularly impressive.For many years, the house operated as a B&B and given its scale, location and numerous bedrooms with ‘en suite’ facilities, the property offers great scope to further develop this business (subject to meeting all necessary requirements). The house is heated using gas central heating and is single glazed (sash and case).In essence, The Croft, 10 Institution Road, is a highly desirable town house in a superb location. It will particularly suit families and those looking to establish and run a B&B / Guest House operation.GARDENOutside, the garden is no less impressive than the house itself. Enclosed by a stone wall which offers great privacy, shelter and seclusion, the garden includes areas of lawn, well stocked beds and borders, a pergola with trained roses, a wealth of mature trees and shrubs, a greenhouse, patio, summer house and garage (4 car). Off street parking for several vehicles is provided on a driveway to the front.
