Glencairn is a handsome traditional villa on a private, elevated site on the edge of Newtonmore. The house is in a stunning position, set above Loch na Leoba with beautiful framed views over the loch and from the front of the house over the village to the Spey Valley and Cairngorm mountains.
The house, which was built in 1907, was renovated and extended by the previous owners with the addition of a Mozolowski and Murray conservatory and integral garage, shower and utility rooms. The current owners purchased the property in 2006 and have carried out further improvements to create a beautifully presented family home retaining much of its original character. The home is in excellent decorative order with fully refurbished dining kitchen, study/family room and bathroom. All windows have been sensitively upgraded retaining their original character. In addition, a wood pellet boiler has been installed which through the OFGEM Renewable Heat Incentive scheme produces a useful income, as well as an energy efficient means of heating the house.
The delightful gardens at Glencairn provide privacy and amenity with their mature woodland, lower garden with mixed borders and sheltered terrace with tranquil views over the loch. Within the grounds is a fully insulated home office or studio with potential for conversion subject to the necessary consents.
Towards the western edge of the Cairngorms National Park, Glencairn is situated at the foot of Glen Banchor which offers beautiful walking and just south of the Monadliath Mountains for those interested in walking up to “Munro” heights. Newtonmore has an extensive network of paths including the 10Km Wildcat Trail managed by the local woodland trust and at its north end has The Highland Folk Museum.
