Wellside Farmhouse is an impressive family home located in a highly desirable and accessible position, a short distance from Forres on the fertile 'Laich o' Moray'. The county of Moray is famous for its mild climate, has a beautiful and varied landscape 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. Nearby is the 'jewel' of the Moray Coastline, the picturesque and historic village of Findhorn (about 9 miles) with its sheltered bay providing excellent sailing and water sports and highly regarded Inns. The Culbin Forest nearby, has a range of marked walks and cycle trails and offers excellent opportunities for a wide range of outdoor pursuits.

Forres (about 4 miles) provides a wide range of shops and amenities whilst the surrounding area offers some excellent hotels, restaurants and historic local attractions. Schooling up to secondary level, including a Steiner School is available in Forres whilst private schooling is available at Gordonstoun, about 16 miles away. Primary schooling is available at the popular village of Dyke (about 2 miles). Inverness (about 26 miles) has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport (about 19 miles) which offers regular flights to the south and summer flights to many European destinations.

Wellside Farmhouse is an elegant traditional farmhouse located at the heart of some of Moray's most productive agricultural land. Dating back to 1878 and constructed of stone and slate the farmhouse is an impressive family home with spacious and well appointed accommodation provided over two storeys.

The arched front door opens into a large and well lit entrance hall with a tall ceiling. A door leads to a bright and generously sized sitting room with a wood burning stove set on a slate hearth. The dining room, currently used as a family room, is similarly proportioned to the sitting room and enjoys an open fire. The double aspect kitchen is a bright and spacious room, with a Belfast sink, high quality fitted wall and floor units and integrated AEG electric oven and Belling Hob. Also on the ground floor are a generously sized utility room, with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer, and a W.C.. A staircase, guided by a carved wooden hand rail and balusters, leads to the first floor landing which gives access to a family bathroom and 4 bedrooms, each of which is generous in size.

The property appears to be in excellent condition throughout and has a number of fine original features one would hope for in a house of this age and quality including tall ceilings and cornicing. The house is heated using oil fired central heating and benefits from double glazing throughout.

Adjoining the house and accessed via an entrance separate to that of the main house is a delightful annexe. The door opens into a hallway which leads to a bright and spacious room, currently being used as an office. Also on the ground floor is a kitchen with fitted wall and floor units. On the first floor are a generously sized bedroom and a shower room with high quality fittings. The annexe provides a great deal of flexibility, ideal for use either by guests, relatives and au pair or live in carer it also offers potential as a holiday let.

Outside, the grounds extend to about 0.56 acres and include a well maintained lawn, nicely enclosed by a hedge, and a patio seating area to the front of the house. To the rear of the house ample parking space for several vehicles is available on the gravelled driveway. There is also a useful outbuilding, of stone and slate construction, which encompasses a garage, workshop / bike shed and log shed.
