Murrayfield is an exceptional detached, stone-built villa, believed to have been built around 1820 and extended to accommodate a local doctor who consulted from the property for many years. Murrayfield retains many of its original features, including cornicing, sash and case windows, moulded skirtings and the original panelled doors. With its high ceilings and well proportioned rooms, it offers a wonderfully spacious interior which would be ideal for a family, subject to some redecoration and upgrading.
The house sits in lovely established gardens, which enjoy a good degree of privacy and are relatively low maintenance.
Murrayfield is located in the centre of Elgin, convenient for a selection of shops, banks, restaurants and within walking distance of primary and secondary schooling. Private schooling is also available for children over 8 years of age at Gordonstoun School, Duffus, about 6 miles away. Moray is famous for its mild climate and the area provides a wide range of leisure and sporting opportunities, including fishing on the world-renowned River Spey, skiing at the Lecht and Cairngorm range, sailing and walking.
Entrance to the property is from Francis Place with a wrought-iron canopy leading to a side lane and the door to what was the doctor's surgery. A gate at the end of the lane leads to the enclosed garden and the front door of the property.
