Lot 2 - The Steading
The steading and courtyard lie to the east of the walled garden and consist of two grade ‘B’ listed traditional one and a half storey stone and slate built outbuildings. Full planning consent and building warrant has been obtained for conversion into a substantial and most interesting detached house with a separate access from the public road across the paddock. The proposed house will comprise: Hall, living room, family / dining room, sun lounge, kitchen, utility, study, bathroom, 3 bedrooms (2 en suite) and an integral garage.

DIRECTIONS
From Elgin in the east, take the A96 towards Forres. At the village of Alves, turn right at the Crooked Inn and continue along a single carriageway unclassified road for about ½ mile where The Anchorage, Steading and Church are located on the left hand side.

LISTED BUILDING
The Anchorage together with Alves Parish Church and The Steading are grade ‘B’ listed.

PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT
Planning and listed building consents have been obtained for the conversion of the steading (ref 10/00767/APP, dated 13th May 2014) and Alves Church (ref 11/00070 APP, dated 13th May 2014) into high quality, interestingly designed detached residential dwellings.

The Anchorage and in particular the wooded grounds and outbuildings would lend themselves to the conversion and establishment of a leisure / tourist related business such as holiday cottages, glamping etc. Such use would be subject to consent, but is supportive of the current Moray Local Development Plan policies.

ACCESS
Should lots 1 and 2 be sold separately, a right of access in favour of the purchaser of lot 2 will be granted over the driveway. Separate access to lot 2 can also be taken directly from the public road.

Photographs
Purchasers should note that some of the images shown online and in the sales particulars were taken in February 2014 (internals) and April 2015 (ground level exterior). In recent years, the property has not been available for sale on the open market and the images shown contain furniture which has now been removed.
