Invererne House is an attractive grade A-listed country house dating from 1818 having been built by an Australian Army Colonel, General William Grant, on the site of a former house called Tannachy, which had belonged to the Tulloch family from the 16th to 18th centuries.

Rod Christie, a partner with Galbraith who is handling the sale, said: “Located a short distance to the north of Forres and with easy access to town, the railway station, Inverness airport and of course the stunning Moray coastline, Invererne House is positioned in a private yet very accessible setting.  The popular village of Findhorn is very close by and attracts visitors from across the world. 

“Invererne House offers all that one would hope for from a country house of this age and character including tall corniced ceilings, open fireplaces and wonderful grand south facing rooms.  It is a most attractive house which will appeal to families in particular with the extensive six-acre grounds opening up wonderful opportunities to those with green fingers.”

There are six bedrooms, three reception rooms, and five attic rooms. On the raised ground floor, the reception hall with its impressive cantilevered staircase, provides an elegant welcome, along with the  two principal reception rooms; the drawing room and dining room, whilst to the rear is a cosy sitting room. In addition to the kitchen and dining room there is a butler’s pantry, boiler room, flower room and cloak room.

On the first floor, there are five good sized bedrooms, many of which have wonderful views across the garden. There are two bathrooms, a shower room and a dressing room / sixth bedroom.

On the second floor are five attic rooms whilst the basement provides excellent storage with a garden store, garage, workshop and various other store rooms.

Among the many period features of this house are the south facing astragalled windows which overlook the garden.

The house is surrounded by beautiful private grounds which extend to about 2.7 ha (6.6 acres) with areas of lawn flanked by mature woodland, a productive orchard, a hard-surfaced tennis court (in need of attention), and a stone built bothy with scope for development (subject to planning permission).

The property  enjoys a quiet and peaceful position about two miles from Forres.

Invererne House is for sale through Galbraith for a guide price of £850,000.
