Milton Brae is a delightful small holding located in a stunning edge of village location near Miltonduff, to the south-west of Elgin. The farmhouse is likely to date from the early to mid-1800’s the property comprises a very attractive farmhouse, a substantial traditional steading and grounds which in total extend to about 9 acres. The current owners purchased the property some 25 years ago and undertook a comprehensive renovation project to create what is now an idyllic family home. The elegant farmhouse provides well-appointed accommodation over two storeys. On the ground floor, a hallway opens to a charming sitting room with an open fire, glazed door to the garden and a wonderful outlook to the south. Opposite is the dining room, also with an open fire and fine views. There is a shower room and a delightful farmhouse kitchen with an Aga, a range of wall and floor units and a glazed door to the garden. Outside, there is a useful boiler / freezer room offering excellent storage space. On the first floor there is a family bathroom with a substantial enamel bath and a large walk in airing cupboard whilst there are also 4 good sized bedrooms. The house has a lovely bright and airy atmosphere with natural light flooding the interior through the large south facing windows. It is very tastefully decorated throughout and the house has many of the features one would hope to find in a property of this age and character including corniced ceilings and open fireplaces. It is part double glazed and part single glazed and is heated using oil central heating.
To the rear of the house is a wonderful enclosed traditional steading. Constructed of stone under a pitched slate roof, the steading was originally built for livestock accommodation and grain and hay storage. In recent years, it has been used as a general store whilst it undoubtedly offers scope for development, subject to obtaining all necessary consents.
In essence, Milton Brae is a magnificent family home and which is located in a very desirable and accessible position.
GARDEN AND GROUNDS
The grounds at Milton Brae extend to about 8.8 acres and include a paddock to the front (about 5.6 acres), a smaller paddock (about 0.8 acres) to the rear as well as various copses of maturing specimen trees. There is a charming garden surrounding the house with a wealth of specimen trees which were planted by the current owners.
The traditional steading would lend themselves for conversion into additional accommodation with the potential for say 4 separate units (subject to obtaining all necessary planning consents). Similarly, the three paddocks may offer longer term scope for development (subject to planning). In the event of planning consent being obtained for any part of the property excluding the house and steading during a period of 25 years from the date of entry, the seller will be entitled to 30% of the difference between the current agricultural value and the value of the land with planning consent.
