Delighted to present this outstanding character property on the outskirts of the village of Dyke, Forres. Formerly called the 'East Church', this property was converted into a very comfortable home and was designed by renowned architect Martin J Archibald and up until recently used as a B&B.

The main lounge upstairs has retained the high ceilings and exposed beams with split-level seating areas and has the impressive original cathedral stained-glass, window.  Unlike many church conversions this property has been designed with the clever use of light throughout which makes this home very bright and cheerful.

Upstairs accommodation:  A master 3rd Bedroom which features a 4-poster king-sized bed, lounging area and en-suite bathroom, 2 further double bedrooms and two bathrooms.  A small library and quiet room is located on this floor but this could be used as a 6th bedroom.  A spacious lounge which has been constructed around the impressive cathedral window.  There are storage and linen cupboards on this floor.

The property throughout has been decorated to a high standard, finished with sumptuous bespoke soft furnishings and is in an excellent state of repair.  As well as period features this property has been made very comfortable with modern additions.  Oil-fired CH and good insulation make this property warm and fuel efficient.  Most of the furniture can be included in the sale subject to negotiation.

The property sits adjacent to 1 acre of land which can be available on application for a grazing licence from the Moray Estates. There are stables and tack room to the rear of the property.  The front of the property has generous parking and a turning circle.
