Property Description

Full description

A stunning, contemporary yet traditional property, with scope to build within the grounds to accommodate several generations of family living, whilst allowing the flexibility of separate space.

It offers extremely comfortable, modern day living, in a totally renovated traditional farmhouse, with large gardens, an excellent 5 acre paddock and 15 acres of young forestry, totalling 24 acres of fully fenced grounds. Set in a beautifully tranquil and rural location, approximately 5 miles from the historic towns of Huntly and Keith, yet very commutable to the cities of Aberdeen or Inverness by road or rail, with Aberdeen airport less than an hour away.

This outstanding property with 24 acres, 15 of which were planted with trees in 2012, is all contained within deer-proof fencing, with mown pathways running throughout the woodland and an area in the top field for a holiday log cabin (subject to planning) - this alone could be a sound leisure business opportunity. There is also an excellent 5 acre paddock immediately opposite The Cottage. The large rear garden has a log cabin previously used as an office and purpose-built dog kennels featuring heated sleeping areas with individual runs, lighting and food store.
