Todholes is a charming traditional farmhouse and steading located in a delightful rural setting near Deskford to the south of Cullen. Sitting in an elevated position, the property enjoys very pleasant views over the surrounding countryside and yet is relatively easily accessible to Cullen to the north and Keith and Huntly to the south.
Constructed of harled stone under a slate roof with two flat roofed extensions, the house provides accommodation over one and a half storeys. On the ground floor, a door leads into a kitchen with a range of wall and floor units. It also gives access to the living room with a recessed fireplace with a wood burning stove. From here there is a door into a family room which has previously been used as a general store/utility area. Back in the living room a separate door leads to the hallway. In the hallway there are stairs to the first floor and an opening to a triple aspect sun room. Further doors in the hall also lead to a shower room and a sitting room with a fireplace with an inset electric fire. On the first floor there is a landing with built in storage cupboards and two coombed bedrooms. Returning to the ground floor, the milkhouse/store (with original stone shelves) forms part of the ground floor accommodation, although with separate access. The house is double glazed and heated using oil fired central heating. The property would benefit from a degree of modernization. Outside, there is an enclosed garden with a lawn, patio and various mature trees and a charming, slate roofed summer house. Ample parking is available to the front and rear of the house and located adjacent to the house is a traditional U shaped steading. Constructed of stone under a pitched slate and cement fibre sheet roof, the steading includes:
Store. About 4.9m x 7.1m
Cart Shed. About 4.9m x 5.9m
Byre. About 4.8m x 11.7m
Byre 2. About 4.8m x 12.7m
Piggery. About 4.9m x 11.6m
Wood store. About 3.3m x 10.3m
A paddock extending to about 1.8 acres sits to the side of the house and provides excellent grazing for horses or other livestock.
