Ardgeith Steading is a large traditional U-shape granite steading situated on an elevated site with southerly views over the Deskry Water. The site in total extends to around 1.4 of an acre and is located on a no through road. Located within the Cairngorms National Park, the site has spectacular open views, south-east towards Bonlee Hill, Baderonach Hill and Gallows Hill, and south-west towards Morven. Planning permission has been granted for a detached house and detached steading, perfectly positioned to maximise the views and natural light, whilst having a sympathetic design to the surrounding environment and location. Both house designs offer very spacious accommodation over two levels, with generous room sizes and popular open plan family living space.
Given the location within the Cairngorms National Park and the outstanding views, these sites represent a fantastic opportunity to obtain a family home in a stunning, idyllic location.

Aberdeen International Airport is also around 1 hour drive away, meaning this is an incredible opportunity for those looking to create a second home offering peace and tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle of busy life in the large cities across the country.
