Traditional Stone-built Detached Period Property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Public Rooms; Retains many original features; Extensive Garden Grounds; Driveway & Garage; Two Stone Outbuildings

TYPE OF PROPERTY Rhu Lodge is an impressive traditional stone built detached period property located in a rural area of Grange which lies close to the town of Keith. The property sits on an area of garden ground which bounds the house on four sides and is understood to extend to approximately 1 acre in total. The front of the property is reached via a gravel drive which culminates in a parking area for several cars adjacent to the front of the property. The property is ideal for entertaining and also provides a spacious family home. The combination of extensive grounds, both formal and utility, along with the layout of the house and outbuildings also offers options for business.

The current owner has addressed a number of issues which were raised in the original home report. This involved the spraying of the timbers in the roof to eradicate any woodworm and any possible fungal growth, due to condensation which now benefits from a 20 year guarantee. In addition to this work, painting has been done to the outside of the property at the front.
