PROPERTY DESCRIPTION
Semi-detached bothy-style cottage located in a quiet and peaceful situation within the rural village of Upper Dallachy with woodlands to the rear, and open fields and a view towards the World War II airfield at Dallachy to the north. The village is ideally placed for access to the splendour of the Moray coast which is only a short drive away, and to the amenities and facilities available in the towns of Buckie and Fochabers, including the primary and secondary schools, supermarkets, eateries, golf courses and medical centres.

The quaint and characterful cottage, to be sold as seen, is believed to date from the early 19th century and is of the 'clay and bool' construction, popular in the area during that period. The cottage displays many traditional features including a Georgian 6-panel door between the lounge and bedroom, and cast-iron fireplaces in both rooms. The current owner has carried out a number of renovations to Bothan Mor, including the installation of a new roof on the property, cement flooring laid, the installation of a UPVC window and French doors, wood-panelling to the internal roof and paving to the outside. There has also been an increase in the overall footprint of the property, with the addition of an area of land to the north of the cottage, currently providing a paved off-street parking area but with ample space to accommodate an outbuilding, such as a summerhouse, garage or workshop, if required.

Whilst the cottage requires a degree of decoration and modernisation, including the installation of a functional kitchen and the re-design of the layout to create a separate shower room, there is great potential on offer. With accommodation all on the one floor, coupled with the idyllic rural location, Bothan Mor is likely to appeal to a number of prospective purchasers including those looking for an artist's retreat, a weekend get-away or a holiday let.
