Milton Brodie is an elegant category A Listed property situated in a peaceful wooded position to the south east of Kinloss on the 'Laich o' Moray'. The house is situated in private part wooded grounds, extending to approximately 22.3 acres. Milton Brodie is a hugely significant house which originally dates back to the 1100's. The architecture has evolved over the years culminating in a fabulous Georgian front façade (by esteemed architect William Robertson) with colonnade entrance portico. The accommodation has been upgraded in recent years and is arranged over three floors with four separate non linking staircases.

On the ground floor the front door leads into a spectacular reception hall. This has two sets of double doors leading to the principal reception rooms, the dining and the drawing room. The drawing room has an open fire and marble surround depicting two eagles and some ornate cornice work. The dining room also has a splendid open fireplace with marble surround and Adam mantelpiece. At the north end there are two columns under which the sideboard is situated. The dining room has a door which leads into the service corridor behind the
kitchen. The sitting (morning) room is situated at the west end of the house and has an open fire with a sandstone surround. There is a window seat under the south facing window.

Other ground floor reception rooms include a nursery and a gun room / study at the east end of the front facade. The centre point of the ground floor accommodation is the kitchen. This was extended and improved some years ago and now includes in the main kitchen a superb range of
wall and floor units. These incorporate a twin stainless steel sink with mixer tap and drainer, a four ring halogen hob with extractor, a four oven Aga, plumbing for dishwasher and a useful larder off. This gives access straight into the breakfast room which has a door to the back of the house
and ample room for a large dining table. This also has a separate sink built into a floor unit. At the north end of the ground floor accommodation there are a couple of double bedrooms served by a bathroom. To the east of the kitchen is a glazed hall offering plenty of coat hanging space and giving access to a store and a garage. Behind the morning
room is a further bedroom. The first floor accommodation is serviced by four separate staircases. The principal bedroom is a spacious room and this is served by a magnificent bathroom and a dressing room / nursery / 11th bedroom. Above this on the second floor are a further two attic bedrooms. There are a further six bedrooms on the
first floor, each in pairs served by a separate staircase and a separate bathroom. In recent years, these have been let out as high quality bed and breakfast accommodation with one of the bedrooms in each pair adapted for use as a private sitting room. This has generated a useful income and has considerable scope for further development.


Milton Brodie is approached from the main road by both a north and south drive which lead through the wooded grounds to the front of the house. This has a gravel sweep with ample parking space. The gardens are quite magnificent. To the south of the house there is an extensive lawn shaded by a variety of mature trees including two large walnut trees. There are many mature shrubs and plants including azaleas, magnolia, rhododendrons, a
large and the relatively unusual Katsura (Cercidophyllum Japonicum) and a mature Enkianthus. Milton Brodie has a walled garden with fruiting trees along the walls and productive vegetable beds and fruit cages. There are two green houses. On the far side of the wall there is a lean-to implement store for housing garden equipment.
To the west of the house is a delightful mixed wood of lime, fir, birch and copper beech under planted with a range of flowering bulbs together with a magnificent laburnum walk. A summer house looks out over a small private garden area surrounded by a rose bed with a paved seating area. The amenity woodland continues to the south. There are various other useful stores /outbuildings.

The property is sheltered on all sides by mature
woodland and also includes three enclosed paddocks
and a riding school (all recently re-fenced and gated), which are ideal for grazing horses or other livestock. There is a substantial timber built hay store as well as a stable block with three loose boxes, a tack room and feed store. There is also another recently built timber lambing shed in the north field. All fields have mains water troughs.
