Burnside Cottage is a delightful traditional cottage located in a tranquil and very private setting between Dufftown and Keith. Likely to date from the 1800’s, the cottage is built from stone under a slate roof and provides very characterful and comfortable accommodation over one and a half storeys. On the ground floor, the cottage includes a hall, sitting room, a kitchen / dining room with a range of floor and wall units and oil fired Rayburn, and a bathroom. On the first floor, the landing has excellent built in storage whilst there are two attic bedrooms with large dormer windows. The cottage has a very cosy and welcoming feel and is heated by two separate wood burning stoves (one in the sitting room and another in the kitchen) whilst there is also an oil fired Rayburn in the kitchen providing the hot water and heating various radiators in the cottage. The cottage is connected to a private water supply to a private foul drainage system. Electricity is provided by solar panels mounted on the roof of the adjacent outbuilding (with battery storage) as well as two diesel generators.
The cottage will appeal to a wide range of buyers and especially to second home owners and to those looking to for a charming ‘Highland’ bolt hole. In recent years, Burnside has been let as Air BnB accommodation.
Outside, there is an area of garden with a slabbed seating area and ample parking space for several vehicles on a gravelled driveway. A delightful burn runs past the front of the house. A useful outbuilding not only houses the associated switch gear for the solar panels and generator but also is a useful garage / workshop, WC and log store.
