A beautifully appointed, individually designed home set in approximately 1.7 acres enjoying spectacular views over the Moray countryside.
Craiglea is a distinctive, architect designed family home occupying a wonderfully rural position whilst remaining convenient for local amenities. The property has been imaginatively designed; the use of glass flooding the house with natural light and taking advantage of the unspoiled views over the countryside towards the historic Duffus Castle.
The property is generously proportioned, arranged over two levels and boasts a number of features. The entrance vestibule leads into an open plan hallway and the downstairs public rooms. The property flows particularly well and is perfect for both modern living and entertaining with large open spaces and bright, airy rooms. The dining room comes with floor to ceiling windows, hardwood flooring and decorative ceiling coving. Adjacent to this the open plan sitting room has been designed to maximise both the natural light and views. The layout cleverly allows the light to spread to other parts of the house. Doors open up directly into the garden. The kitchen comes with a comprehensive range of wall and base storage units and Siemens appliances. There is a utility room located off the kitchen with additional storage, space for white goods and an external door. The inner hall leads to a wonderful Master bedroom suite which could be self contained. There is a large double bedroom with expansive bay window, dressing room, en suite with Jacuzzi bath, large walk in shower, wc, wash hand basin and heated towel rail. There is also a separate home office/study.
A carpeted staircase leads to a magnificent galleried mezzanine sitting area which has four large velux windows and wood burning stove in the corner. Located off the sitting area is the large family room with fantastic undisturbed views over the countryside. Bedroom two is another well-proportioned bedroom with mirrored wardrobes and en suite. Bedrooms three and four share a Jack and Jill shower room.
This property has 1.7 acres of land.
The grounds of Craiglea are a particular feature and extend to around 1.7 acres. The immediate garden grounds have been nicely landscaped and are mainly laid to lawn and bounded by hedging, mature trees, shrubs and plants. The gardens enjoy great privacy and include a summerhouse, BBQ hut, garden shed and kennel.
To the side there is an additional area with further development potential (subject to the appropriate permission) which is currently used for a chicken run, fruit cages and vegetable patch. The large driveway has ample space for several vehicles and leads to a detached double garage and workshop with power and lighting.
The property enjoys a fantastic rural position, yet is convenient for local amenities and is just a short distance from Elgin. Primary schooling is available nearby with secondary schooling in Elgin and private education at Gordonstoun Independent School.
Craiglea is positioned between Elgin and Lossiemouth and the area is the ideal retreat for a quiet stress free lifestyle with some of the finest scenery in the region. With its miles of white sandy beaches, sand dunes and Morays resident population of bottle-nosed dolphins, the scenery is quite spectacular. For the sporting enthusiasts the area offers a host of activities including hill walking, water sports activities, white water kayaking, fishing and golfing.
Elgin, the administrative and commercial capital of Moray has a long and fascinating history. Elgin Cathedral, known as the Lantern of the North, was established in 1224 by Alexander II as the seat of the Bishopric of Moray. Other attractions include Pluscarden Abbey, the Biblical Gardens within Cooper Park, Spynie Palace and Elgin Museum. There are also a range of local amenities at Moray Leisure Centre including swimming, skating, curling and squash, a local cinema and a selection of local distilleries. The property is located only 31 miles away from Inverness Airport which is the air gateway for the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. The property is conveniently located off the A96 providing easy access to both Aberdeen and Inverness. Both Inverness and Elgin provide extensive retail parks and shopping centres as well as many entertainment, cultural and leisure activities.
From Elgin take the B9012 Duffus Road for around four miles. Turn right at the sign for Duffus Castle and follow this road along for around a mile taking the right hand turn onto Covesea Road. Pass a row of cottages on the left hand side and continue along this road where you will find the property located on the left hand side.
