North College sits in a private yet central position overlooking Cooper Park in the historic city of
Elgin between Aberdeen to the east (66 miles) and Inverness to the west (39 miles). The county
of Moray is famous for its mild climate, has a beautiful and varied countryside with a coastline of
rich agricultural land, prosperous fishing villages and wide, open beaches. The upland areas to
the south are sparsely populated and provide dramatic scenery, some of which forms part of the
Cairngorm National Park. This unspoilt landscape provides a wide range of leisure and sporting
opportunities including fishing on the world famous Spey and Findhorn rivers, skiing at The Lecht
and Cairngorm range (about 1 hour’s drive), sailing and walking. There are many highly regarded
golf courses nearby including Elgin Golf Club (about 1 mile), The Moray Golf Club in Lossiemouth
(about 7 miles) and also the two championship links golf courses in Nairn (about 22 miles).
Located about 20 minutes drive away is the ‘jewel’ of the Moray Coastline, the historic village of
Findhorn with its sheltered bay providing excellent sailing, water sports and highly regarded Inns.
The city of Elgin, with its famous 13th Century Cathedral provides an excellent range of amenities
including a wide range of shops, supermarkets, leisure facilities, train station and a hospital. There
are a number of highly regarded primary schools in Elgin as well two secondary schools and
Moray College which forms part of the University of the Highlands and Islands. Private schooling
is available at Gordonstoun School, about 6 miles away near Duffus. Inverness (about 38 miles)
provides all the facilities of a modern city including its Airport (about 30 miles) which offers
regular flights to the south and summer flights to many European destinations whilst Aberdeen
(Europe’s oil capital) is one of the UK’s wealthiest cities and is located about 66 miles to the east.

North College House - With crow stepped gables and dressed stone, the house dates from the 13th Century and is primarily constructed from harled stone under a pitched slate roof and provides extensive yet easily managed accommodation over three storeys. The central section of the building comprises North College House. From the sweeping gravelled driveway, the house is accessed through a
semi circular vestibule which leads to a bright and well lit hallway. There is an atmospheric sitting
room with a vaulted ceiling and a large fireplace with a wood burning stove whilst an archway
leads to a private study area with built in shelving. The spacious kitchen is fitted with good quality
floor and wall units, a granite worktop and a 4 oven Aga with an extractor hood. There is a double
ceramic sink and an integrated dishwasher and fridge. From the kitchen, doors access the vaulted
breakfast room and a family room with an attractive stone built fireplace and a door to the garden.
Linking the main house to the practice rooms is a utility room / rear hall with glazed doors that
lead to the garden and driveway respectively. On the first floor are the principle reception rooms
including the magnificent drawing room with bow fronted windows overlooking the garden and
park beyond, an impressive fireplace with a marble surround, cornicing and a shelved alcove. The
dining room is equally impressive and is well lit with windows on all three external walls. Also on
the first floor is a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom, a WC and a delightful semi circular
study which could potentially be used as a bedroom. On the second floor, the generously sized
master bedroom sits above the drawing room and enjoys equally fine views and which also has
an ‘en suite’ bathroom, whilst there are also 2 further bedrooms (1 ‘en suite’), a family bathroom, a
large airing cupboard / store and another study that could also be used as a bedroom. The house
has all of the fine period features one would expect in a property of this age and quality and has
gas central heating and is part secondary glazed.

The Practice Rooms
The northern section of North College comprises the premises currently used by Moray Osteopaths.
This single storey section of the building was added by the current owners and comprises three
separate practice rooms, a reception area / office, WC and store cupboard.

This part of the building also has a separate access and would be an excellent base from which to
further establish a business from home. The current rent and contribution towards running costs.
