Dating from the 1800’s, the house is built from stone under a slate roof and has been extended over the years (most recently in the 1970’s with the addition of the garages) and provides well-appointed and flexible accommodation over two storeys. The house has recently been refurbished to create a wonderful family home. On the ground floor, a vestibule leads to a spacious hall from which doors lead to the sitting room Left) and the dining room (right). Both rooms have tall corniced ceilings and fireplaces (the dining room has a wood burning stove). A passage leads to a superb open plan dining kitchen (installed in 2019) with a range of wall and floor units, a central island and various integrated appliances. From here, a door opens to a spacious utility area with further floor units and a Belfast sink. A door from here leads to a rear porch and to a passage which accesses a newly refurbished shower room and the family room / play room. This is a wonderfully bright, dual aspect room with further kitchen units, a door to the rear and a magnificent built in barbecue. A door from here leads to the front courtyard and also to the attached double garage. On the first floor, the landing opens to a box room and two substantial double bedrooms. From a half landing, a passage has doors to a family bathroom and two further bedrooms.

The Old Farmhouse is a relatively rare example in Moray of a substantial traditional farmhouse and has many of the features one would hope to find in a property of this age and character including tall corniced ceilings, fireplaces and working timber shutters. Various alterations to the house have opened up the newly fitted kitchen and the utility room which in addition to the beautifully proportioned reception rooms to the front are most impressive rooms. The house is heated using oil central heating and is double glazed.

GARDEN AND GROUNDS
Outside, there is a generously sized garden which is enclosed by a mature hedge and fence. Ample parking space is available at the side of the house whilst there is also a superb double garage adjoining the house. To the rear is a paddock extending to about 2.7 acres which provides excellent grazing for horses or other livestock. In total, The Old Farmhouse extends to a little over three acres.
