Caledonia is a most impressive house located in a quiet yet very accessible semi rural setting between Lossiemouth and Elgin. The disused Lossiemouth to Elgin railway line can be accessed directly from the garden and provides a wonderful walk on the doorstep of Caledonia. Lossiemouth is a prosperous town on the Moray coast that originated as a fishing village and sea port serving the historic city of Elgin nearby. Along with one of Europe's largest air bases (RAF Lossiemouth), the town provides a good range of shops, bars, restaurants and other local amenities whilst the surrounding area offers some fine hotels, restaurants and local attractions. Well regarded primary and secondary schooling is available in the town whilst private schooling is available at Gordonstoun, about 5 miles away. Elgin (about 4.5 miles) provides a wider range of facilities whilst Inverness (about 44 miles) has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport which offers regular flights to the south and summer flights to many European destinations. Aberdeen Airport is located about 65 miles to the east.
The County of Moray is famous for its mild climate, has a beautiful and varied countryside with rich agricultural land and a coastline with 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 Lossie, Spey and Findhorn rivers, skiing at the Lecht and Cairngorm range, sailing and walking. Lossiemouth Marina has good facilities and has access at all states of the tide. There are many highly regarded golf courses nearby including Moray Golf Club in Lossiemouth with its classic Links Course designed by Tom Morris in 1889 and the West Course as designed by Henry Cotton in 1979, Elgin Golf Club, and also the two championship courses in Nairn.
Caledonia is a superb family home situated in a peaceful yet convenient setting. It is a house of exemplary quality, designed by the well regarded local architect Keith Edwards and has been finished to the highest standards. Completed in 2006, it is of rendered block construction under a pitched tile roof and provides spacious and well designed accommodation over two storeys.
The partly glazed front door opens into a bright and spacious hallway with a large cloaks cupboard and bespoke, solid oak staircase to the first floor. From the hallway a door opens to the impressive dining kitchen with a good range of high quality floor and wall units and integrated appliances including a microwave and fridge. With French doors leading out to the timber decking in the back garden it is a wonderfully bright room, sharing this light with the dining room via a useful glazed hatch. The spacious sitting room is flooded with light from a large south facing window and the room also benefits from a Jøtul wood burning stove and solid oak floor. Double doors lead to the dining room, from which a door leads to the welcoming and brightly lit sun room; a triple aspect room with French doors to a seating area in the garden. Also on the ground floor are three double bedrooms (one with an en suite shower room) all of which are generous in size and have fitted wardrobes; a study / bedroom, a family bathroom and a utility room with plumbing in place for a washing machine. The stairs lead to the first floor and up to a wonderful, spacious living room from which fantastic views over Lossiemouth can be enjoyed. From here two further bedrooms can be accessed, both of which are bright and airy and have large en suite shower rooms with high quality fittings.
In general Caledonia is an impressive property. The spacious accommodation and flexible room layout makes it an ideal family home while it also offers fantastic B&B potential. In recent years it has run successfully as a B&B and attained 4 star accreditation. The house benefits from double glazing and oil fired central heating.
Outside, the garden and grounds are equally as impressive as the house and extend to about 1.16 acres. The rear garden includes a timber decked seating area, extensive areas of lawn with well stocked beds and borders including an impressive array of heathers. A gravel path leads to the front of the house and is bordered either side by well stocked rockeries. In addition, there is a 19m x 5m poly-tunnel whilst ample parking space for a number of vehicles is provided to the side of the house. Located opposite the house is a useful block built outbuilding which is currently used as a general store / workshop, measuring 10.6m x 8.2m together with an adjoining store of about 1.8m x 3.7m. The outbuilding and area of surrounding hardstanding offer potential to create additional accommodation on site (subject to obtaining all necessary consents).
