McEwan Fraser Legal are delighted to offer a unique opportunity to purchase this category C listed seven-bedroom mansion house and ancillary buildings located on the southern outskirts of Elgin.
This is a rare development opportunity as the property would benefit from modernization throughout, perfect for someone looking to put their own stamp on the property.
Originally starting life as a modest Georgian farmhouse circa 1750 the property was greatly extended around the 1850s into a grand Victorian residence for the owners of the adjacent Linkwood Distillery, retaining to this day many original features and details.
The entrance vestibule takes you into the Victorian part of the property where the grand hallway and exquisite timber dog-leg staircase with barley twist balusters gives a taste of the visual delights within. Access is gained to the large sitting room and adjacent sunroom and across the hall to the equally spacious dining room which could cater for even the largest dinner parties.
