Docharn Lodge is an exemplary converted and extended steading set in an accessible rural setting between Aviemore and Carrbridge. The house sits in an elevated position and enjoys a spectacular outlook to the south across Strathspey towards the Cairngorms. The older section is built from stone whilst a more recently built extension is constructed using a green Oak frame with stone and Siberian larch cladding under a slate roof. The spacious accommodation extends to about 282 m2/3,030 sq.ft and is provided over a single storey. The house has a wonderfully bright and airy feel with large windows and glazed doors flooding the interior with natural light and opening up the magnificent views. It has been built and finished to an exemplary standard with the sitting room, open plan dining/living room/hall, the master suite and kitchen being particularly impressive rooms. The house has many fine features including high quality kitchen and bathroom fittings, under floor heating, bespoke windows with in-built venetian blinds, an integrated central vacuum system and wood burning stoves. The house has been well insulated and is heated using a ground source heat pump with a heat recovery and ventilation system. In addition, there is also a bank of roof mounted solar PV panels.GARDEN AND GROUNDSLocated to the rear of the house is a 3 year old Bothy. Of similar construction to the main house extension, The Bothy includes a large, insulated, double garage (with automatic doors), a garden store/potting shed, and a first floor annexe which has been let successfully as holiday accommodation in recent years. It includes an open plan kitchen/living/dining room, a shower room, bedroom and a utility room. The Bothy has underfloor heating provided an Air Source Heat Pump.Surrounding the house are the delightful garden grounds which are no less impressive than the house. Extending to about 0.91 acres or thereby, the garden includes well stocked beds and borders, areas of lawn, a substantial patio, poly tunnel and ample parking space for several vehicles on a gravelled driveway.
