Set at the heart of one of the most desirable coastal villages in the North East, Findhorn House is an impressive house occupying a prominent position overlooking Findhorn Bay and located above the Royal Findhorn Yacht Club. Believed to date from 1770 with later additions in 1870, the house is built from stone under two pitched roofs and provides spacious and flexible accommodation over two and a half storeys.

Accessed on the ground level, the front door leads to a main hallway with stairs leading up the first floor and doors to a wet / shower room and a utility room / 2nd kitchen. A passage leads to a magnificent and brightly lit drawing room with two fireplaces and breathtaking views out over the bay. There is a well equipped kitchen which has been relatively recently fitted whilst completing the ground floor is a good sized double bedroom and a study which could also used as an additional bedroom if required. From the inner hall, stairs lead to the first floor. An impressive sitting room with built in shelving and a fireplace offers great flexibility either a cosy reception room or use as a further bedroom whilst there are three further double bedrooms one of which has an en suite bathroom. The other two bedrooms both have access to ‘Jack and Jill’ bathrooms. There is also a useful laundry room with a built in airing cupboard. The second floor comprises two attic rooms.

The house is heated using electric wall mounted heaters.

Findhorn House is an exceptional property occupying arguably the finest position in the village. The room layout is such that it could be used as a spacious family home as well as offering scope for part of the accommodation on the first floor (bedroom 2, the en suite bathroom and laundry room) to be occupied separately, possibly as a granny or staff annexe or let on a long term or holiday let basis.
