Full description

We are delighted to offer for sale this substantial double fronted detached property in Elgin's desirable West End.

Strathdonan has been run as a Bed & Breakfast by the current owner and is now being offered for sale due to her retirement. The house would make a delightful family home or town centre commercial premises and it also represents a superb "home and income" opportunity. All the double bedrooms in the main part of the house have wash-hand basins and T.V. points and three rooms are also fitted with shower cubicles. The suite of rooms to the rear of the house is ideal for a dependant relative, teenager or as owner's accommodation if the house is being used on a commercial basis.

Strathdonan has many lovely traditional features including deep moulded skirtings, cornices and the generously proportioned rooms typical of older properties. It also benefits from gas fired central heating system throughout the property, partial double glazing and fire alarm system. All the fitted carpets, curtains, blinds and light fittings are included in the sale and the white goods and some of the furniture is available by separate negotiation.

To the front of the house there is plenty of visitors car parking and there is a courtyard and elevated drying area to the rear with a shed providing useful additional storage.

Strathdonan is located in the busy town of Elgin and is exceptionally well located in the prestigious West End. It is only a short walk from local primary and secondary schools and only four miles from the renowned Gordonstoun School. The town centre, Dr. Gray's Hospital and supermarkets are nearby along with an excellent range of restaurants, cinema and leisure centre. Moray is favoured for its attractive scenery, very mild coastal climate and it offers a wealth of outdoor activities from golfing and fishing to sailing. The ski slopes of Aviemore and the Lecht are also within easy driving distance and excellent sandy beaches line the nearby coastline. The town is easily accessible with domestic and international flights available from Aberdeen and Inverness Airports which are some sixty-six and thirty-six miles away respectively.
