This is indeed a rare opportunity to purchase a historical building, part of the original Toll Road beside the mart in Huntly. Dating back to the 1800s, this old tollhouse, known as Rose Cottage, is an unusual landmark in the Battlehill area of Huntly. The octagonal three bedroomed detached granite building enjoys a sunny disposition with two windows in most rooms. The field of approximately 3/4 of an acre is adjacent and is thought may be possible for future development with all appropriate permissions in place. The spacious accommodation includes the hallway giving access to the lounge which has a gas fire, double bedroom, cloaks/w.c. and stairs to the first floor. The fully fitted dining kitchen has a utility porch off and a back door to the garden. There are two large double bedrooms on the first floor with a shower room. Outside there is a vast gravel parking area ideal for caravans or vans and there is a wooden garage and wooden shed. Viewing advised to appreciate this rare find.
