Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Anchorage is an elegant, classical Georgian Manse dating from approximately 1835 and attributed to Elgin Architect William Robertson (1786 - 1841). South facing, the house is constructed of stone under a pitched slate roof and is grade 'B' listed. It sits in a charming secluded setting with a large walled garden lying to the east and more extensive wooded policies to the south and west ensuring great privacy and shelter.

The house has been comprehensively renovated in recent years to create a magnificent family home of exemplary quality. The renovation was completed to the highest of standards including completely re-wiring, re-plumbing, renovation and insulation of the roof and a new central heating system. Care has been taken to maintain all of the period features such as cornicing, fireplaces (2 with wood stoves), working timber shutters, window seats and tasteful decor that one would expect in a country house yet also incorporating modern and high quality kitchen and bathroom fittings. The house is well insulated and is heated using an energy efficient wood fired bio mass boiler (see services).

Outside, there is a delightful walled garden to the east of the house which is laid to lawn with various mature trees, flower beds and herbaceous borders. Garden buildings include a useful newly built triple carriage house style garage (about 4.8m x 9.0m). To the south and west of the house is a charming woodland plantation which includes a wide range of mature specimen trees and rhododendrons. The house is accessed over a sweeping tarmac and gravelled drive providing ample parking space for a number of vehicles. In total, the grounds extend to about 4.65 acres.
