Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Newton House is a striking, grade B listed, derelict country house situated in a quiet yet easily accessible rural location about 3.5 miles west of Elgin. The house was damaged by fire in the 1980's and has been vacant ever since. Planning consent was previously obtained to convert it into 5 separate apartments, providing a fantastic development opportunity. There is also scope to restore the house to a large baronial home or split it into two homes; drawings exist for these options although planning consents have not been obtained. The house is surrounded by mature grounds of which about 2.80 acres is included in the sale.

Moray, famous for its mild climate, has a beautiful and varied countryside with a coastline of rich agricultural land, 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 world famous Spey and Findhorn rivers, skiing at The Lecht and Cairngorm range, sailing and walking. There are many highly regarded golf courses nearby including Elgin Golf Club (about 5 miles), The Moray Golf Club in Lossiemouth (about 8 miles) and also the two championship links golf courses in Nairn (about 20 miles). Located about 15 minutes drive away is the 'jewel' of the Moray coastline, the historic village of Findhorn with its sheltered bay providing excellent sailing, water sports and highly regarded Inns.

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 Elgin. Forres also has a Steiner School whilst private schooling for children over 8 years of age is available at Gordonstoun School, about 6 miles away. Inverness (about 35 miles) has all the facilities of a modern city including its Airport (about 27 miles) which offers regular flights to the south and summer flights to many European destinations.

Planning and listed Building consents were obtained in September 2009 to convert the building into 5 separate apartments (Ref: 08/01414/FUL). Purchasers should satisfy themselves as to all aspects with respect to the planning status of the property. Further details are available from Moray Council.
