We have pleasure in offering for sale this impressive, stone built, detached dwellinghouse which is set within approximately an acre of idyllic walled garden grounds in the charming coastal town of Portsoy, on the picturesque Moray Coast. Offering an exceptional level of accommodation and generous storage facilities spanning three floors, this enviable family home is presented in immaculate order throughout. Traditional characteristics are in abundance, including high ceilings with deep moulded coving; a bay window in the lounge; original timber panelled interior doors with individual locks; and an impressive staircase with ornate metal balustrade and solid handrail, ascending from the reception hall to the attic floor. The current owners have completely refurbished the property to a high standard and benefits include a dual control central heating system supported by PV solar panels, with individual thermostats on the traditional column radiators in the ground floor rooms; uPVC double glazed windows which flood the rooms with natural light and create a light and airy ambience throughout; solid timber external doors with multi locking systems; a spacious integral double car garage; mains wired smoke detectors; and an intruder alarm system. Other features particularly worthy of note include the creation of a fabulous open-plan kitchen/diner, undoubtedly the “hub” of the home, boasting a quality “Bauformat” German designer kitchen with customised polished granite worktops by “The Elgin Marble Company”, and a “Rangemaster” multi-fuel cooker; and the addition of a convenient utility room, and smart cloakroom/toilet fitted with contemporary Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware, on the ground floor. The modernised family bathroom and en-suite shower rooms display wet-wall panelling and modern sanitary ware in a white finish; and three of the four bedrooms benefit from generous wardrobe facilities. In addition, there are two versatile attic rooms on the top floor which offer ideal space for a home office, gym, or games room.
The beautifully landscaped, walled garden grounds are simply stunning. Neatly manicured, rolling lawns are surrounded by deep borders stocked with an abundance of mature flowering shrubs which offer a display of year-round colour, and magnificent trees provide a high degree of privacy. A secluded courtyard enjoys a particularly sunny aspect to the rear, and there is convenient off-street parking for several cars on a tarmac driveway, which extends round to the front of the property. Included in sale are all floor coverings, window dressings and quality appliances in the kitchen. Certain other items of furniture may be available by separate negotiation. This is a unique opportunity to acquire a substantial family home in a private setting, yet close to all local amenities, and interior viewing is essential to fully appreciate the prime opportunity which this high calibre home has to offer.
