Stunning contemporary cottage with breathtaking views, beautifully furnished and with a superb garden and hot tub, located just outside Grantown-on-Spey and the perfect Highland retreat for a large family or group of friends.
Nestled at the northern tip of the Cairngorm National Park, just outside Grantown-on-Spey, this stunning property is perfectly positioned for access to the best of Speyside's attractions. Home to a wealth of outdoor activities, Craggan Outdoors at Aviemore (14 miles) has something for everyone from archery to abseiling. If you are prepared to get wet, and feeling more adventurous, try your hand at gorge walking or white-water rafting. For those less inclined towards outdoor activities, head north to beautiful Cawdor Castle and Gardens (23 miles) or pack a picnic and spend a day at the seaside at Nairn (23 miles). For a day out, Inverness (34 miles) is within an hour's drive. For whisky lovers, a visit to one of the many Speyside distilleries is a must – choose from The Glenlivet (19 miles), Tomintoul (16 miles) or a host of others scattered along the River Spey.
As you enter this delightful stone and timber-built property via the bright porch, you come into the fabulously spacious open-plan kitchen/dining/living area – with its high ceiling and warm wooden floors it is the perfect space for socialising and getting together for a meal. The immaculate kitchen is superbly equipped for creating some culinary masterpieces while you chat over a bottle of wine. After eating, relax on the large corner sofa to enjoy the superb views outside through the floor-to-ceiling windows. The property blends contemporary comfort and traditional style, with the addition of some quirky pieces of vintage furniture. There's also a nod to Scottish tradition with the tartan fabrics in the cosy snug, which is separated from the kitchen area by folding doors so the living area can be extended if required. If not, enjoy cosying up with a book by the wood burner in this welcoming little room. Also downstairs you will find two of the four bedrooms – one double and one king-size, which has an en-suite shower room. There is also a shower room with WC and hand basin. Heading upstairs to the first floor you will find two more bedrooms – a king-size room and a twin room, both with charming sloping ceilings. There is also a smart family shower room.
Outside, the enclosed garden offers a large stretch of lawn on all sides of the property, with plenty of garden seating and the additional luxury of a hot tub.
