This outstanding VICTORIAN VILLA is set in substantial and beautifully maintained gardens in a prime location on one of Huntly’s most prestigious residential streets. “Rosebank” is one of the finest properties we have seen in Huntly and is unusual due to the significant Victoria features which have been retained from the time it was built. Externally the property is set in magnificent grounds with a wealth of attractive plants, shrubs, trees and flowers and has the additional advantage of having a delightful “Bothy” which is currently used as a workshop. There are double garages with further off street parking. Internally the original features have to be seen to be appreciated and the Vestibule, Hallway and Public Rooms in particular are outstanding. We strongly recommend viewing as this property is quite unique in the Town and has to be viewed to be fully appreciated. Unfortunately, photographs do not do it justice and to appreciate the special ambiance and setting a visit is required.
Huntly is a long established and prosperous market town on the main A96 road approximately 39 miles from Aberdeen and 59 miles from Inverness. It is within easy commuting distance of Aberdeen, Inverness and Elgin and is on mainline rail and other public transport networks. Amenities include a Community Hospital, a choice of major Supermarkets and Sports and Leisure Facilities (including dining out, golf, fishing on the rivers Deveron and Bogie, bowling, cricket, football, swimming pool, skiing at the Nordic Ski Centre and many more). There is Primary and Secondary Education at the well regarded Gordon Schools. The town has a visible history with lovely traditional architecture, National Trust sites nearby and is a popular tourist centre during the summer months, giving easy access to the Grampians, Cairngorms, Royal Deeside, Strathdon and the Moray Firth.
