Fairfield House sits in a delightful secluded and private rural position at South Troves, a short drive from Elgin. Built in 2001 using a timber frame with rendered brick under a pitched tiled roof, the house has been designed to enjoy wonderful views over the surrounding countryside, particularly to the south across the beautifully maintained garden and rolling farmland. Fairfield House is an attractive family home, with well designed and spacious accommodation provided over two storeys. On the ground floor, a vestibule leads to a bright and well lit hallway with Amtico hardwood effect flooring, and stairs to the first floor. From here, doors lead to an elegant triple aspect drawing room with an attractive open fireplace and a lovely outlook over the garden. A side door leads to an impressive garden room / conservatory with French doors leading to the extensive stone slabbed patio. Across the hall is the dining room which could also be used as a 5th bedroom or study and which also has direct access to a ground floor shower room. The well equipped breakfasting kitchen has recently been upgraded and has a good range of wall and floor units, an electric and gas fuelled Rangemaster cooker, Belfast sink, granite worktops and Karndene flooring. From the kitchen, a door leads into a rear hall with a separate access to the garden and on to a utility room which accesses directly into the integral double garage. The garage provides excellent storage space and has 2 sets of automated up and over doors. Completing the ground floor is a WC / cloak room. On the first floor, a landing with spacious built in cupboards, leads to a family bathroom and four generously sized bedrooms of which the master bedroom has an en suite shower room and the guest bedroom an en suite bathroom.
Fairfield has a lovely bright and airy atmosphere, with good quality finishings and décor throughout. The sitting room, newly refurbished breakfasting kitchen, sun room and master bedroom are particularly appealing rooms whilst the flexible room layout ensures the house can easily be adapted according to individual requirement. The house benefits from mains water and electricity, oil fired central heating, double glazing and high levels of insulation. In addition a 4kW solar panel system on the south facing roof generates a modest but useful annual income.
Outside, the house sits in an extensive and extremely well maintained garden which extends to over an acre. The garden is enclosed by a delightful bank of mature specimen trees which provides great privacy and shelter. Predominantly south facing, the garden is a real sun trap and includes areas of lawn, a large stone slabbed patio with a pergola, a delightful summerhouse (with power and lighting), a timber decked seating area, a useful timber shed and well stocked herbaceous borders and flower beds. Accessed through an electric gated entrance, ample parking space is provided on a gravelled driveway which has an attractive stone built
