Ellesmere Cottage is a charming cottage located in a peaceful yet accessible setting in the Glenlivet Estate, an area which covers the two broad straths of the Rivers Avon and Livet and lies between the Ladder and Cromdale hills, within the Cairngorm National Park. With open expanses of heather covered hills, woodlands and clear rushing burns, here lies arguably some of the finest scenery in the Grampian Highlands. This unspoilt landscape provides a wide range of leisure and sporting opportunities including fishing on the world famous Spey and Findhorn rivers, skiing at The Lecht and Cairngorm range, sailing and walking. Tomintoul (about 9 miles) provides useful amenities including shops, cafes, a public house, doctors' surgery and primary school whilst Dufftown, about 14 miles to the north also offers a good range of day to day facilities. There is also a well regarded primary school and doctor's surgery in Bridgend of Glenlivet (about 1 mile). A wider range of facilities are available in Aberlour (about 13 miles) and Grantown on Spey (about 20 miles), whilst the city of Inverness, with its rail and airport links, lies about 52 miles to the northwest. There are a wide range of rural pursuits available locally including waymarked walks and cycle tracks, skiing at the nearby Lecht Ski and Activity Centre and golf at Grantown, Ballindalloch, Dufftown and Carrbridge.

The historic city of Elgin provides a comprehensive range of shops and amenities whilst the surrounding area offers some excellent hotels, restaurants and historic local attractions. There are a number of good primary schools in the local area and schooling up to secondary level is available in Aberlour. Inverness (about 52 miles) has all the facilities of a modern city including its Airport (about 51 miles) which offers regular flights to the south and summer flights to many European destinations.

Ellesmere Cottage is a delightful cottage in a beautiful location and enjoys stunning hill views. Originally a distillery cottage a number of improvements have been made to the cottage in recent years and it appears to be in excellent condition. Constructed of rendered block under a pitched tile roof, flexible and well apportioned accommodation is provided over one storey.

Accessed through a bright vestibule the spacious hallway has a large storage cupboard. From the hallway a glazed door leads to the bright and welcoming sitting room with a large window and wood burning stove. There is a well equipped kitchen which includes a Stoves double oven and matching ceramic hob, a range of solid wood fitted wall and floor units and two large built in cupboards. From the kitchen a door leads to a good sized utility room with plumbing in place for a washing machine and a door leading out to the raised timber decking in the rear garden. There are two well proportioned double bedrooms and a dining room / 3rd double bedroom. The kitchen, dining room and bedroom one all enjoy stunning views out to the rear garden and the hills beyond. The shower room has high quality fittings and is partly wet walled. The substantial floored loft is accessed from a hatch and Ramsay style ladder in the hall is the substantial floored loft providing excellent storage space. The potential also exists to convert the loft to a further bedroom assuming all necessary planning consents are obtained by the purchaser.

In essence Ellesmere Cottage has a lovely bright and airy atmosphere and a flexible room layout that will appeal to a great many prospective buyers. It is double glazed and has oil central heating.

Outside, a good sized garden surrounds the house and to the rear consists of a raised timber decked seating area, a patio and a lawned area where beautiful views over to the Lecht and Ben Rhinnes can be enjoyed.
