Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Ardgye Farmhouse is an elegant traditional farmhouse located at the heart of some of Moray's most productive agricultural land. The farm at Ardgye has historically been extremely well regarded and the quality of the farmhouse mirrors that of the surrounding land. Believed to date back to the mid to late 1800s and constructed of stone and slate the farmhouse is an exceptional family home with spacious and well appointed accommodation provided over three storeys.

From the sweeping gravelled driveway, the front door opens into a large and well lit entrance hall with stripped pine floor boards and a staircase guided by a carved wooden hand rail and cast iron balusters leading to the first floor. Doors lead to an elegant drawing room with an attractive fireplace with a marble surround, tall ceilings with ornate cornicing and on to a similarly proportioned dining room.

There is a generous sized study with an open fireplace which would also make a cosy snug or family room whilst a cloakroom / WC completes the upper ground floor. The lower ground floor comprises a stunning open plan dining kitchen / family room with a good range of wall and floor units, an oil fired Rayburn, various integrated appliances and a Belfast sink. There are two good sized walk in cupboards whilst in the living area is a fireplace with a wood burning stove. From this room, access is gained to a generously sized playroom with part wood panelled walls which could be put to a wide range of alternative uses including as a studio, spacious home office or an additional public room. There is also a shower room and utility with access directly into a substantial adjoining double garage which provides extensive storage space. On the first floor are a family bathroom, a separate shower room and 4 bedrooms, each of which has a tall ceiling with one of the bedrooms also having an en suite shower room.

The property has a number of fine original features one would hope for in a house of this age and quality including some attractive open fire places, an oil fired Rayburn in the kitchen, cornicing and plasterwork. The house is heated using oil fired central heating with under floor heating on the lower ground floor.

Outside, the grounds extend to about 5.4 acres or thereby and include a large well maintained garden enclosed by some fine mature trees together with a paddock of about 3.6 acres suitable for grazing ponies, horses or other livestock. The garden comprises areas of lawn including the 'croquet' lawn to the front of the house whilst ample parking space is provided on a gravelled driveway.

Positioned within the garden is a charming detached bothy which has been renovated in recent years to create a delightful one bedroomed apartment, ideal for use either by guests, older children or relatives or by an au pair or live in carer. In addition, there is a useful traditional stone and slate built outbuilding providing extensive storage and possible development potential (subject to planning).
