Rod Christie, a partner with Galbraith, said: “Craighurst is an impressive family home that successfully blends the character of the original house with the benefits that many of its contemporary features provide. The entertaining space is first-class, with a mix of formal and informal reception rooms, whilst there are five double bedrooms and a self-contained, one bedroom annexe. The rear garden offers great privacy and seclusion, with attractive landscaping to create a lovely outdoor seating area and terraced lawns. The house is situated close to the centre of Keith on the town’s most desirable street and enjoys a quiet yet accessible position.”

Craighurst Garden

The beautifully-presented accommodation includes two formal reception rooms - a sitting room and music room, both well-proportioned with superb period features including open fires, ornate cornicing and ceiling roses.

The open plan kitchen/dining/sun room is a particularly attractive and welcoming space. The kitchen is very well equipped with a range of wall and floor units and a number of integrated Miele appliances, while the dining area has a wood burning stove with ornate mantle. The sun room area is light and bright, with French doors out to the garden. A utility room and a W.C. complete the ground floor accommodation.

Upstairs there are four generously-sized bedrooms, three with en suite shower room and one with en suite bathroom. The second floor has a seating area on the landing, a fifth bedroom with dressing room and a shower room. There is also a first floor annexe consisting of a kitchen/dining/sitting room, bedroom and shower room.

The house has an excellent mix of original features and modern fittings, and has been comprehensively refurbished in recent years. Craighurst has very adaptable accommodation and, with its six bedrooms and three reception rooms, offers the potential to be operated as a guest house or B&B, if desired.

The rear garden is a beautiful space to relax or entertain guests, with an extensive stone patio, areas of terraced lawn, flower beds, summer house and pagoda. The garden is fringed by mature trees and a wooded bank which provide shelter and privacy from the neighbouring houses.

A tarmac driveway to the front offers ample space to park several cars in addition to the double garage with electric doors. The plot extends to 0.96 acres in all.

The property is situated in a convenient but peaceful location in Keith, Aberdeenshire, within easy reach of the town centre and, to the north, the train station.

Craighurst is for sale through Galbraith for a guide price of £725,000.
