Full description

A magnificent Georgian country house of international renown, a neoclassical masterpiece. Cairness House is a comfortable family home with 7 reception rooms and 8 principal bedrooms. Situated in a quiet rural setting.

Cairness House is a remarkable example of neoclassical architecture - of its type the most significant in Britain - but it is also a comfortable and manageable family home. In its design, construction and furnishing, it was the ultimate expression of the Enlightenment ideals of the late 18th century.
The house is approached by a drive about 1km in length. The entrance gates are flanked by 2 sphinxes and a pair of gate lodges. The reception rooms form a grand enfilade along the front of the house with south facing windows with extensive views.
The main bedroom floor is accessed via tow staircases leading to an arched corridor. Most of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, with beautiful fittings including roll-top baths. Recently the majority of the principal rooms have been restored and redecorated in exquisite taste with great attention to historic detail.
Landscaped grounds with young arboretum and mature parkland trees. Wonderful 5 acre walled garden. In all 16 acres

Fraserburgh 7 miles, Peterhead 12 miles, Aberdeen city centre 39 miles. The coastal village of St.Comb's is 2 miles away and Aberdeen and its international airport is within 45 minutes drive.
