DESCRIPTION
Nestled within the Nairn Valley, Holme Rose is an attractive residential and amenity estate close to the Moray Firth, with lovely views overlooking the policies towards the Nairn River. Situated at its core, is the very attractive Holme Rose House. The house is an excellent example of Georgian symmetry. It boasts an elevated position and includes 3 reception rooms, 8 principal bedrooms and 4 bathrooms,
as well as two flats with a further 6 bedrooms.

In addition to the Gate Lodge, there are four further estate cottages, two of which require refurbishment. The formal gardens are laid out surrounding the main house, and they also include a wonderful C-listed 1.8 acre former walled garden, over which two of the cottages overlook. The estate also has a range of traditional and more modern farm buildings. The surrounding land at Holme Rose is gently sloping and from the haugh land by River Nairn it rises from 60 metres to about 100 metres above sea level at the north western boundary.

Extending to approximately 358 acres in total, the land consists 185.42 acres of grass leys, 149.02 acres of woodland, 8.27 acres of rough grazing and 15.26 acres of gardens/buildings/river/miscellaneous ground. The woodland comprises a mix of mature commercial woodland, amenity woodland and new plantings. It is not only a home for wildlife, but it also offers opportunities for roe deer stalking and the potential to create a small pheasant shoot.

The estate also includes 1.3 miles of single bank salmon and sea trout fishing on the River Nairn with a 10-year average of 23 salmon and 2 sea trout. The estate has the right to fish 2 rods. In recent years the Nairn Angling Association has had a lease over the beat.
