The house has a separate wing, currently offered as a very successful 5-star holiday let and also offers further development potential as planning permission has been granted for a three-bedroom dwelling to be built within the grounds.
John Bound, who is handling the sale on behalf of Galbraith said:
The Dell of Rothiemurchus represents an ideal opportunity to enjoy a wonderful Highland lifestyle with the option to further enhance the property. The house itself is substantial, elegant and has been beautifully refurbished and maintained throughout, while retaining the period features and character of the property. It has lovely gardens and its secluded setting, surrounded by woodlands, with a private access track, is hard to beat.
Despite the seclusion, Aviemore, with its choice of restaurants, pubs and train station, is less than two miles away. The house has a separate West Wing, which has been graded five-star by VisitScotland for a number of years and has been run successfully for short holiday lets providing very useful income and with scope to increase this. John Bound, continued:
Furthermore, planning permission is in place for an additional house in an attractive setting in the grounds, which could create a further potential income stream. These options provide considerable flexibility for the next owner. It is a rare opportunity to be able to acquire a site in the Rothiemurchus area and the value of this site, with planning permission, should not be underestimated.
The Dell of Rothiemurchus dates from the early 1900s and was originally a tenanted farmhouse on the Rothiemurchus Estate. Over the past 20 years the current owners have totally restored and renovated the property, to create the delightful and comfortable family home that is now coming to the market.
The internal accommodation includes: drawing room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, pantry, boot room, laundry room, workshop, study, cellar, seven bedrooms, dressing room to master bedroom and three bathrooms. The West Wing has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a sitting room and kitchen/dining room. There is a separate driveway and front door to the West Wing, offering completely separate access for tenants, however access to the main house is easily reinstated for large family gatherings or as preferred.
The grounds extend to about 1.5 acres, with pretty landscaped gardens, mature trees, potager and lawns, with views to the Cairngorms. Outbuildings include a former stone bothy, summerhouse and a recently built double garage.
The Dell of Rothiemurchus is for sale through Galbraith, for offers over £900,000.
