Situated in an elevated position, Craggan Mhor commands stunning views and is the only house to over look the confluence of River Spey and River Fiddich. Dating back to 1892, it has a distinctive granite exterior with a slate roof and provides spacious and very well appointed accommodation over 2 storeys. The front door opens into an entrance hallway with stairs to the first floor. To the left is a sitting room, an impressive room with ornate cornicing, an open fire with a stunning timber surround and a bay window from which exquisite views over Strathspey can be enjoyed. Opposite the sitting room is a dining room with similarly impressive features as the sitting room. Adjacent to the dining room is a bright study/library with excellent fitted bookshelves whilst also accessed from the hallway is a cosy snug/5th bedroom. The generously sized dining kitchen is wonderfully light, and has a range of timber floor units, a Rangemaster stove with a gas hob and an oil fired Rayburn. A shower room and boot room complete the ground floor accommodation. Accessed from the stairs is a delightful bathroom with a roll top bath whilst on the first floor, the landing gives access to the four bedrooms. The master bedroom is generously sized and wonderfully light with a bay window, also enjoying excellent views. There are three further good sized bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a dressing room as well as a linen store/box room. A door from the kitchen gives access to a separate staircase which leads up to a former Maid’s room which offers scope for development (subject to obtaining any necessary consents).
Overall, the house has a wonderfully warm and welcoming atmosphere with a number of fine features that one would hope to find in a house of this age and quality including tall ceilings with ceiling roses and ornate cornicing, timber window shutters and attractive open fireplaces.
Wrought iron gates flank a tarmacked driveway leading up to Craggan Mhor which provides ample space for parking vehicles. The house sits within grounds extending to about 1.30 acres, bounded by mature specimen trees and principally laid to lawn with plant and shrub borders and raised vegetable beds. A raised timber deck with a built in BBQ storage provides a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the stunning outlook. Lying a short distance from the house is a substantial detached workshop/garage (about 11m x 8m) with power, lighting and a pit, there are also various adjoining stone built stores and a greenhouse. Subject to obtaining the necessary consents, the outbuildings offer great scope for development into additional accommodation.
