Stunning Georgian country house in mature grounds with far reaching views.

Location

Keig House lies in the scenic Howe of Alford, about 4 miles from the outskirts of Alford. As the principal town serving Donside, Alford offers an excellent range of amenities including a health centre, shops, banking, post office, filling station and hotels. Leisure pursuits are well catered for with a swimming pool, a dry ski slope at Alford Ski Centre and an 18 hole golf course. Visitor attractions include the Grampian Transport Museum, Alford Railway Museum and Alford Heritage Centre. The life size statue of a bull on the eastern approach to the town marks the area's claim to be the birthplace of the Aberdeen Angus breed of cattle. On the edge of Alford is Haughton Country Park, a 200 acre park with children's play area, walks and trails, a putting green and camp site. The ski slopes at the Lecht are about 25 miles to the west. The surrounding hills offer wonderful walking and a wide range of field sports is readily available in the area. The boundary of the Cairngorms National Park lies some 12 miles to the west.

Description

Keig House is situated on the edge of Keig village in grounds secluded by mature deciduous trees. Black wrought iron gates and granite pillars lead to a driveway which passes through woodland, ending in a gravel sweep in front of the house. Created in the classic Georgian style, Keig House is built of squared granite, dressed with chamfered reveals. A building of considerable but understated charm, it is built over three floors and a basement, and is three windows wide, with delightful proportions. The previous owners and the current sellers have sensitively upgraded and restored the house to its former glory. Works included replumbing, rewiring, the installation of a new central heating and water system, repairs to sash windows and a new kitchen and bathrooms. Features of note include high ceilings, picture rails, high skirting boards, pitch pine flooring, panelled doors, mahogany balustrade and flagstone flooring. The house has superb views of the surrounding countryside. The mature garden is filled with a wide variety of trees and planted for seasonal colour. In spring there is an abundance of bluebells, snowdrops and daffodils in the woodland surrounding the house.

Square Footage: 4,319 sq ft
Acreage: 1.6 Acres
