Built in 1996 on the site of a former steading, the extensive property is arranged in an L-shape around a central courtyard and has a wealth of space both inside and out.Old stone has been reused throughout to create an impressive and stylish home.Part of the property has been converted from the original farm buildings and now houses two independent apartments – the two-bedroom Sidlaws and the one-bedroom Bothy – as well as a gym, a large office, a games room and a home cinema, complete with seating, lighting and a sound system.
The four-bedroom main house would make an ideal family home with lots of space for entertaining, while the two apartments provide the opportunity to create an income stream from letting or to create independent accommodation for relatives, guests or for running a business.
There is also scope to link the Sidlaws apartment to the main house.
