Ingle Neuk House is a delightful property situated in the historic Scotstown area of the popular town of Banff. Located on the Moray Firth coast at the estuary of the River Deveron, Banff is one of the best-preserved townscapes in Scotland with a grand Georgian upper town in addition to the older Scotstown area. The town also boasts two harbours and spectacular scenery, whilst there are a wide range of recreational activities within the area including golfing, fishing, water sports and stunning walking trails. Banff has good day to day amenities including an array of shops, banks, hotels, restaurants, cafes, a health centre and schooling at both primary and secondary levels.
The historic city of Elgin is 35 miles away and provides a comprehensive range of shops and amenities whilst the surrounding area offers some excellent hotels, restaurants and historic local attractions. Aberdeen is located some 46 miles away, and provides all the leisure, recreational and entertainment facilities expected from the oil capital of Europe. It also provides good transport links with a mainline railway station and is host to an airport providing both domestic and international flights.
Ingle Neuk House is a wonderfully characterful, grade A listed house in a convenient yet quiet town centre location. Dating back to the 17th Century and constructed of harled stone under a pitched slate roof, the house provides spacious and flexible accommodation over three floors.
From a cobbled courtyard the front door opens to the hallway. From here an opening leads to the kitchen, a generous sized room with a great deal of character and a number of fine original features including exposed ceiling beams and a deep recessed ingleneuk fireplace framed by a segmental-headed hearth. Also on the ground floor are the sitting room, with original wood panelled walls, and a bathroom. A staircase leads to the first floor which gives access to two bright and very generously sized bedrooms, both with wonderful open fireplaces and views out to the garden. On the second floor there is a converted attic room and the potential exists to convert the remaining space into a further room, subject to all necessary planning consents being obtained.
In general Ingle Neuk is a characterful property that would make a delightful family home and also offers great potential as a holiday let. The house benefits from gas central heating and mains electricity.
Outside, to the rear of the house lies a generous sized walled garden, the walls of which are grade A listed, as is the summerhouse within the garden. The pretty garden is well maintained and largely laid to lawn bordered by mature plants and shrubs. There is also the potential to use part of the top of the garden for off street parking. To the front of the house lies a paved and cobbled courtyard which can be accessed from the road via an arched pend. On the other side of the courtyard, opposite the entrance to Ingle Neuk House is an 18th Century stable, currently used as storage.
