The property, recorded in 1788 as the Red Corf House, has links to the boatbuilding and forestry industries.
Rod Christie, a partner with Galbraith, said: “Dunfermline House is one of the most attractive and interesting properties I have had the benefit of marketing over my 20 or more years in the industry. The uninterrupted views across the river and out towards the Moray Firth are spectacular whilst the house exudes considerable charm and character, blending beautifully the modern and many period features. Used most recently as a family home, Dunfermline House is laid out in such a way that one wing could easily be adapted for use either as a holiday let, granny annexe or similar. With grounds that extend right down to the high water mark, there is also a useful traditional steading with potential for development, subject to planning permission.”
Dunfermline House has beautiful accommodation set out over three floors including five bedrooms and three elegant reception rooms with many fine features including reclaimed timber beams, timber shutters, high quality kitchen and bathroom fittings and under-floor heating on the ground floor.
Notable features include a wonderful sitting / dining room with wood burning stove, a snug, a family room with exposed timber beams, a characterful dining kitchen with an Aga and flagstone floors.
In addition, there is extensive ancillary accommodation including a gym / store room, two bathrooms, two cloakrooms and en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom. The family room on the first floor and the master bedroom both have balconies to make the most of the glorious outlooks.
A very appealing aspect of the house is that the south eastern ‘wing’ can be accessed either directly from the kitchen or through its own separate external doors offering the option of providing additional accommodation to the main house or being used separately, perhaps for a holiday let or for multi-generational living.
Outside, there is a generous garden to the front with lawn, flower beds and borders. To the rear is a more expansive area of garden leading down to the high water mark. The plot extends to about one acre in all. At the side of the house is a useful double garage.
There is a B-listed barn to the rear of the house which had planning consent for conversion into a three bedroom home. This consent has now lapsed; however, there may be scope for development (subject to obtaining all necessary consents).
The situation of the property is second to none, in an edge of village location with easy access to local amenities, but enjoying spectacular views to the north and east over the Spey and Moray Firth.
Nearby, the historic city of Elgin provides a comprehensive range of shops and amenities. Gordonstoun School is about 15 miles away, while there are a number of other good schools in the local area. Inverness (about 47 miles) has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport. There is a mainline railway station in Elgin providing easy access to Inverness, Aberdeen and the south.
Dunfermline House is for sale through Galbraith for a guide price of £725,000.
