Windyhills is a delightful country house located in a charming, rural setting. The house has anintriguing history and it is believed that the older part which now includes the sitting room and study was originally built and used as a penitentiary for the monks at the nearby Kinloss Abbey at Milton Brodie. The house is constructed of rendered brick/block and stone under a pitched slate roof and provides spacious and well appointed accommodation over two storeys. On the ground floor, a spacious and well lit dining room has double doors out to a patio and opens directly into a well equipped kitchen with a range of wall and floor units and an electric AGA. A rear porch/mudroom can be accessed directly from the kitchen. The charming triple aspect drawing room is a generously sized reception room and has a wood burning stove and French doors to the garden and a patio. A further sitting room with a wood burning stove could easily be used as an additional bedroom if required whilst stairs lead to a mezzanine level study. A double bedroom and shower room complete the ground floor. On the first floor, a landing with an ample storage cupboard leads to two bedrooms, the largest of which was created from 2 previous bedrooms and which could easily be returned to the previous layout (subject to planning). A family bathroom completes the accommodation. The house has a bright and airy atmosphere created by many large windows and French doors as well as many other fine features including wood burning stoves. The house is connected to mains water and electricity and has a private foul drainage facility. Heating is provided by a bio-mass boiler which was commissioned in 2014. Feed in Tariffs in the order of £4,300 per annum will continue until 2021.
