Arradoul House is an elegant grade 'C' listed country house located in a pleasant semi rural position between Buckie and Fochabers.
Believed to date back to 1800 (and possibly with an earlier core), the house was further extended in 1900 and now comprises a wonderful family home. Built from harled stone under a pitched Banffshire slate roof, the architecture clearly shows the house's two
distinct ages and it is most attractive with its sandstone detailing and margins. Since purchasing the house in 2007, the present owners have done a great deal of work both internally and in the garden.
Extensive and well appointed accommodation is provided over two and a half storeys, which on
the ground floor includes a stunning drawing room with an attractive marble fireplace and French doors to the garden, a sitting room with a wood burning stove, a games room / dining room, a family room with a wood burning stove, 2 kitchens (the largest of which has an oil fired Aga), a study and extensive ancillary accommodation. On the first floor, there are 5 generously sized bedrooms, 2 'Jack and Jill' bathrooms and a shower room, whilst on the second floor, there are 2 attic bedrooms and a WC. There is also extensive further attic space which offers potential for conversion into
additional accommodation (subject to planning) or use as excellent storage space.
As a refurbished, period home, there are many fine original features including cornicing and plasterwork, attractive fireplaces, working timber shutters and servant's bells.
Outside, the house sits at the centre of stunning grounds which extend to about 1.65 acres. The house is nicely screened from the public road by a mature wood of Oak, Sycamore and Beech of which the woodland floor in the early summer is carpeted with bluebells. The gardens, which have been enormously improved in recent years include areas of lawn with attractive box hedging, raised flower and vegetable beds, rose beds, mature and well stocked herbaceous borders and shrubberies, a decked barbecue area and a number of very useful outbuildings including two garages / workshops, a greenhouse and a summer house. There is ample parking on a sweeping gravelled driveway.
The extensive range of useful outbuildings includes:
