DESCRIPTIONThe Black House is an exemplary new house located in a highly desirable rural setting at the heart of Speyside. From its elevated position, the house enjoys a magnificent outlook over the Speyside and the surrounding hills. Built by well-regarded local firm, Excel Scotland Ltd, the house was built in 2019 and constructed from block with stone and painted Larch cladding under a slate roof and provides spacious and very well appointed accommodation over two storeys. On the ground floor, an entrance vestibule leads to a utility room (with access to the plant room – with hot water tank) and also to a WC / cloak room which has been plumbed for conversion to a shower room if required. From the main hall, turning right leads to the magnificent open plan kitchen / dining / living room with a good quality kitchen with a range of integrated appliances, a wood burning stove, glazed doors leading to the garden and large triple aspect picture windows which open up the spectacular views. Also on the ground floor is a study / 4th bedroom which also has a pair of glazed doors to the garden area and the dual aspect master bedroom with an ‘en suite’ bathroom. The master bedroom also has glazed doors to the garden. On the first floor, a landing with excellent built in storage cupboards and doors leads to two generously sized bedrooms, both of which have dormer windows and ‘en suite’ facilities.The house appears to be in excellent condition, is tastefully decorated throughout and has high quality kitchen and bathroom fittings. It has a wonderfully bright and airy feel with large double glazed Nordan windows flooding the interior with natural light. The house is heated using an Air Source Heat Pump with under floor heating on the ground floor as well as a wood burning stove in the living area.ACCOMMODATIONGround Floor:Vestibule. Utility Room.
