Wester Chalder is a delightful small holding located in a secluded and very peaceful position in Strathisla to the south of Keith. The property comprises a delightful extended farmhouse constructed of stone under a pitched slate roof, a range of useful outbuildings and land extending to about 15.1 acres or thereby. Likely to date from the late 1800s, the house is constructed of stone under a slate roof with a timber built extension (sun room) to the front. Access is taken directly from the yard and on the ground floor, the house has a rear hall with access to a wet room, utility / boiler room and two bedrooms, one of which has been used as an office in recent years. A door leads to the dining kitchen with a range of floor and wall units. From the ground floor passage, a door opens to a bright and airy sun room with large windows and a glazed door overlooking the garden. From the hall, there is a staircase to the first floor and doors to a family bathroom and the sitting room which has a wood burning stove. On the first floor, a large landing would make an ideal informal seating area or home office whilst doors lead to 2 attic bedrooms both of which have dormer windows and built in storage.
Whilst the house may be considered by some as appearing dated, it does have a lovely and warm atmosphere, a very flexible floor layout and would make an ideal family home. It is heated using oil central heating and is double glazed.
GARDEN AND GRAZING LAND
Surrounding the house is a mature garden with a wealth of plants and mature trees.
