Auchindachy House is an outstanding detached house located in a charming, secluded, rural setting near Keith. Likely to date from the late 1800s, the house is constructed of stone under a pitched slate roof and sits in a fine elevated position overlooking Strathisla. Having been comprehensively renovated and refurbished in recent years, Auchindachy House is in excellent condition and provides spacious and well-appointed accommodation over two storeys. On the ground floor, the house is entered through a delightful vestibule with a tall corniced ceiling and tiled floor. The main hallway has stairs (with a carved hand rail and balusters) to the first floor and doors off to a sitting room and lounge. The sitting room is a most impressive room with an attractive marble fireplace, bay window and hardwood flooring. The lounge, which is located opposite, also has a bay window and an open fire with a Riven slate surround and if required would lend itself for use as a 5th bedroom. From the hall, a passage leads to a cloak room and WC, a store with stairs down to the wine cellar / workshop and a door to the dining room. At the end of the passage, a door opens into a superb kitchen with an oil fired Aga, central island with two sinks and a waste disposal unit, a range of well crafted, bespoke floor units with space for integrated appliances, granite work surfaces and a very attractive classical flag stone floor. Glazed double doors from the kitchen lead through to the dining room whilst a practical rear staircase also provides additional access to the first floor. An opening from the kitchen leads to a magnificent sun room with triple aspect windows, flag stone floor and French doors to the garden. A further opening from the kitchen leads to a utility room with double Belfast sinks and a further door to the garden. On the first floor, the main landing accesses the master bedroom which has built in mirror fronted wardrobes and an ‘en suite’ shower room, whilst the second bedroom is located directly opposite. There are two further bedrooms, a shower room and a generously sized bathroom.
The house has considerable character and beautifully combines modern living with all of the traditional features one would hope for in a house of this age and character including cornicing, open fires, wooden skirtings, doors and finishes and hardwood flooring.
The sitting room, kitchen, sun room and master bedroom are particularly appealing rooms whilst the room layout is such that the house could easily be adapted according to individual requirement. The house is heated using oil central heating and is double glazed. It is connected to mains electricity and water and a septic tank.
GARDEN AND GRAZING LAND
Outside, the grounds extend to about 0.75 acres and are just as impressive as the house. Enclosed by a wall, hedging and mature trees, the grounds include areas of lawn, well stocked beds and borders, two patios / seating areas, a summer house / gym with a raised decked area and space for a hot tub (hot tub available by separate negotiation) and useful garden stores. A detached garage provides excellent storage space whilst the property itself is accessed over a blocked driveway with an electric gate. Ample parking for several vehicles is provided on a gravelled parking area.
