Tenure: Freehold

A stunning "B" Listed Georgian mansion on a 30 acre riverside estate, with salmon fishing rights, tennis and equestrian facilities.

Location

Invery occupies a secluded setting on the outskirts of Banchory, yet is only approximately a 1 ¼ mile scenic walk from the amenities of the town. Banchory, the gateway to Royal Deeside, is a popular and expanding town which offers a wide range of specialist shopping, two supermarkets, banking, restaurants, garden centres, hotels, swimming pool, library, health centre and dentist. There are two primary schools, one recently opened, and secondary education is at the highly ranked Banchory Academy. Leisure activities available locally include fishing, shooting, ski-ing at Glenshee and the Lecht, equestrian activities and golf.

Invery House will benefit from the new Aberdeen Bypass, improving access to Aberdeen Airport and to routes north and south.

Description

This is a once in a generation opportunity to acquire a very fine country house, in a riverside setting in its own wooded grounds, including a variety of mature hard and soft woods, extending to some 30 acres. There are 0.76 miles of double bank Salmon and Sea Trout fishing on the River Feugh, and a tennis court and extensive equestrian facilities. Invery House has not been available on the open market for some 21 years.

Travelling along the meandering driveway bounded by low level white fencing one is immediately absorbed into a world of serene peace and tranquillity. The flows of the river bank curve and wind through the polices, making this a haven for outdoor pursuits within the seclusion and privacy of your own residence.

A feature of the house is that all the living areas are bathed in an abundance of natural light flowing through the large Georgian windows. The flagstoned entrance hall leads into the great hall around which the drawing room, dining room, library and family room are situated. Invery was built with serious entertaining in mind and the great hall is large enough to host a band and ceilidh dancing. Upstairs on the first floor is a principal bedroom suite and dressing room and 3 further ensuite bedrooms. On the second floor there are a further 6 ensuite bedrooms. There is also a staff wing with self contained independent access with a living room and two ensuite bedrooms. The heart and hub of this family home is the particularly large dining kitchen with hand made cabinets, island bar and triple Aga. In addition there is a study, boot room, laundry room and larder and in the basement is a billiard room, gymnasium and wine cellar. Fireplaces feature quite heavily throughout and most are original. Polished wooden floor areas are enhanced by the extensive plaster cornice work and ornate ceiling roses.

Square Footage: 14,092 sq ft
Acreage: 30 Acres
