Full description

Balnaferry House is an exceptional, detached villa lying well back from the Grantown Road on the outskirts of Forres. The property retains many of its original features, including cornicing, sash and case windows, moulded skirtings and original panelled doors and with its high ceilings and well proportioned rooms, it offers wonderfully spacious accommodation. However, the property is currently in need of repair, including timber treatments and refurbishment.

Balnaferry House sits in a generous plot and it, therefore, enjoys a great degree of privacy. Forres town centre is a short drive away and it offers a good range of amenities, including primary and secondary schooling, shops and supermarket.
