From the village of Dyke, Morayshire a two minute drive through the fields on a short private estate track will bring you to this exclusive development of only 7 homes, set around a central square amid natural Highland splendour.

The striking contemporary design of the homes is drawn from an original concept by the internationally acclaimed architect Niall Mclaughlin. The homes are carefully positioned and designed with the greatest attention to detail to make the most of their natural setting creating a stylish rural haven.

Trivselhus homes come from our own ethically managed forests, are made in our purpose built, cutting edge factories using sustainable raw materials and are then brought to Scotland, to site, where they are personalised inside by our customers. Whether it’s your kitchen, bathroom or door handle the choice is yours.

The highest quality construction and lowest possible carbon footprint are the guiding principles for Trivselhus’ environmentally sensitive approach to Darklass Estate.

Exteriors are a perfectly balanced mix of timber and render with a standing seam metal roof that blends with the aluminium-clad triple-glazed windows.

Interiors are designed to optimise space and natural light. The one storey ‘Living’ area sits under an impressive, overarching cathedral ceiling and comprises an open-plan kitchen, dining room and lounge which seamlessly opens out onto nature.

Attention to every detail can be seen throughout, as exemplified in the specially commissioned kitchen design. Under floor heating creates a warm welcoming space where you can comfortably pad about barefoot making your morning coffee and wander from the kitchen to the lounge through the open plan space.

In the sleeping area the house’s imposing galleried entrance hallway leads past a utility room to three bedrooms (one with en-suite) and a family bathroom. An open-tread wooden staircase leads up to the house’s sumptuous master suite with breathtaking views to Culbin forest. The whole 60 sq m space of the master suite is dedicated to a luxuriously large bedroom with its own study, dressing room and bathroom.


Moray is the perfect spot to relax in peaceful, tranquil surroundings and enjoy a stroll on one of the many breathtaking beaches nearby. The warming effect of the Gulf Stream blesses the area with a favourable climate with low rainfall and sunshine levels above the national average. As well as natural splendour there are also many beautiful castles and heritage sites, sporting pursuits and attractive country villages and towns to enjoy.

You can certainly expect many days of play on the nearby top-class golf courses, many of which are of Championship standard. This includes Nairn Golf Club which hosted the 1999 Walker Cup and Castle Stuart which hosted the Scottish Open.
