Craigmhor was originally built for the distillery’s Revenue and Customs officer and was subsequently used as the distillery manager’s house. It has been extended and modernised over recent years and provides very well appointed accommodation over two storeys. The door opens into a vestibule, straight ahead is a useful utility room with space for white goods and to the right is a W.C.. To the left a door opens to a very well equipped dining kitchen which has a range of integrated appliances. From here, there is access to the inner hallway which has stairs to the first floor and a pantry/large storage cupboard. To the right is a sitting room which has a wood burning stove, opposite this is a music room/4th bedroom. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a magnificent sun room which is very generously sized, has French doors out to the garden and is flooded with natural light. The first floor landing gives access to a family bathroom and three good sized bedrooms, all of which have excellent storage space and one of which has an en suite shower room. Overall, the house has a light and welcoming atmosphere, is beautifully presented and has a number of fine features that one would hope to find in a house of this age and quality including high ceilings, picture rails, ornate cornicing and ceiling roses. All of the rooms are well proportioned and the layout is such that it allows for a great deal of flexibility. GARDENOutside, there is a beautifully maintained garden which includes areas of lawn bordered by well stocked flower beds, patio seating areas and two greenhouses. A gravelled driveway provides space for parking in addition to the large double garage which also has additional accommodation on the first floor - an ideal home office space. Another driveway at the bottom of the garden offers further parking. SITUATION Craigmhor is a most impressive house located in a wonderful elevated position in the village of Thomshill to the south of Elgin.
