Description

If you are looking for a beautiful house in Scotland, then this magnificent mansion in Moray, offers comfortable stylish accommodation for any occasion.

Dating back to the 1770’s this Adam style mansion is as magnificent today as the day it was built. Set in well maintained grounds, with a front lawn surrounded by woodland, the house takes centre stage and is a stunning retreat. On offer is the main core of the original building, with its fine twin-stair entrance, bringing you into the grand entrance hall. Beyond this are the wonderful drawing room, dining room, TV room, family sitting room and functional kitchen, with the 9 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms on the floor above.

A housekeeper is on site most days within a separate office or working on behalf of the house. Easily accessible from anywhere in the UK, with Inverness airport only 30 minutes away, this is a gorgeous holiday house which will last long in the memory.

    The large front facing drawing room is an elegant room, with comfortable seating, grand piano and large gilt mirror, with an ante room next door, which can either be part of this main room or as a separate sitting room. It also has comfortable seating with a TV with SKY connection, and these rooms have SONOS. In the grand hall, there is a magnificent wood panelled snug with wood-burning stove, with this area and up the stairs all decorated with stags heads and ancient armoury. A family sitting room is located to the rear of the house which is ideal for children to find their own space or be used as an extra function room, depending on your requirements. The pool table is always a popular feature of the room.

    Kitchen & Dining
    The front facing dining room has character and atmosphere in abundance, with semi wood panelling and fine furniture and family portraits throughout. With seating for 18 people in comfort, this is a dining room with some style and panache. The kitchen is next door and is more modest in style and space, but is modern and has the capacity to cater for up to 18 people, with two double ovens and 4 hobs. There is adequate storage with a fridge freezer and an additional refrigerator. (For those with extra catering requirements or using a caterer, then an additional kitchen can be made available to the rear of the house on request).
