Rod Christie of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said: “This is an exemplary conversion of a traditional property, blending the original building with the new ‘green oak’ extension and very thoughtfully designed to provide spacious and attractive accommodation throughout.
“There is a separate bothy offering an apartment which may be used for visiting family or as a holiday let, if desired, and the location is second to none. The views over Strathspey to the mountains behind are simply beautiful.”
The house has many fine features including under floor heating, wood burning stoves, bespoke windows with in-built venetian blinds, and an integrated central vacuum system. The house has been well insulated and is heated using a ground source heat pump with a heat recovery and ventilation system. In addition, there is also a bank of roof-mounted solar PV panels.
The spacious accommodation extends to over 3,000 square feet all on one level, including a wonderful open plan hall/dining room/living room, a separate sitting room, kitchen, utility room, family bathroom and five double bedrooms, all en-suite , while the master bedroom also has a dressing room.
To the rear of the house is The Bothy, which includes an insulated, double garage with automatic doors, a garden store/potting shed, and a wonderful first floor apartment which has been let successfully as holiday accommodation in recent years. It includes an open plan kitchen/living/dining room, a shower room, bedroom and a utility room. The Bothy has underfloor heating provided by an air source heat pump and has its own private terrace to the rear.
Surrounding the house are the delightful grounds which offer a variety of seating areas and spaces to enjoy the beautiful views. Extending to about 0.91 acres, the gardens include well stocked beds and borders, areas of lawn, a large patio, poly tunnel and ample parking for several vehicles on a gravelled driveway.
