DESCRIPTION
An elegant Edwardian country house set in its own grounds. This truly remarkable home has just about all a discerning homebuyer could want: 4 public rooms on the ground floor, 6 spacious bedrooms on the first floor, an attic with a suite of rooms and gardens large enough to lose oneself in several times over. Specific features of the house include the expansive drawing room ideal for receiving guests, the cosy sitting room with an open fire and a bay window onto the garden terrace, the formal dining room and the spacious kitchen. The main bedrooms including the master bedroom suite and a study with a picture window and a captivating view are on the first floor. Much could be made of the second, attic floor with its array of rooms and stores. At various periods of its history Beldorney has been two properties in one, with the east most end capable of being a standalone home or perhaps business premises. Complementing the interior are equally exquisite grounds which boast a triple garage, workshop, wood store and garden room, the mixed mature woodland, fruit garden and enclosed vegetable garden, the outdoor swimming pool, curling rink and a tennis court.

LOCATION
Just 3 miles from the busy town of Nairn, Beldorney is surrounded by 6 ž acres of trees, formal gardens and shrub beds. Wildlife abound throughout the grounds with pine martins, squirrels, red deer, woodpeckers and various other birds being regularly spied. Local shopping is available in Nairn including a supermarket, beach walks, a pleasure harbour with a well used marina and a railway station. The city of Inverness with its shopping, district general hospital, leisure and recreational facilities is approximately 15 miles to the west. Aberdeen is 87 miles by road and there is a frequent rail service from Nairn too. Inverness airport is only 10 minutes drive from Beldorney. The Moray Coast with its delightful scenery including the sailing facilities in Findhorn Bay are within a short drive and Gordonstoun School is within a 30 minute commute. For the golfing enthusiast there are several top flight courses nearby including the Scottish Open course at Castle Stuart.
