Braeriach is an impressive and highly desirable family home set in a charming edge of town location on Seafield Avenue, Grantown and at the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. Dating from the 1880s, the house is constructed from attractive dressed stone under a pitched slate roof and provides well-appointed, spacious and adaptable accommodation over three storeys. From the gravelled driveway, the house is entered through a well lit vestibule into a magnificent, bright and welcoming reception hall with a fireplace and wood burning stove. From here, an ornate staircase leads to the first floor whilst doors open to a dining room with a deep set bay window, a sitting room, also with a bay window and a door to a charming sun room which interconnects with the dining room. There is a family room, also with a wood burning stove, and a superb dining kitchen with a good range of wall and floor units, a central island and granite worktops. Completing the first floor is a utility room, cloak room / WC, rear hall and a boiler room. On the first floor, a spacious landing with built in cupboards has doors to 4 bedrooms, a study / home office, a family bathroom and a shower room. A separate staircase accesses the second floor which has 5 bedrooms and a further bathroom.
Braeriach has a lovely bright and airy atmosphere and beautifully combines a wealth of period and modern features that one would hope to find in a house of this age and quality. These include ornate cornicing and plaster work, open fires (some with wood burning stoves), pitched pine doors and surrounds, stained glass windows overlooking the stairs and high quality kitchen and bathroom fittings. It is heated using oil central heating. The house is currently used as a family home but could easily be adapted for use into a high quality Guest House (subject to obtaining all necessary consents).
