Built circa 1895 for the local parish minister, The Old Minister's House is a stone-built residence offering almost 3,500 sq. ft. of light-filled flexible accommodation arranged over two floors, nestled in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.

This is a beautifully presented period home which has retained much of its original charm and features, including sash glazing, high ceilings with fine cornicing and feature fireplaces. Configured to provide an ideal living and entertaining space maximising the views over the Cairngorms, the property oozes elegance combined with a striking contemporary design.

The property has operated as a luxury holiday let for many years, providing guests with an unforgettable holiday experience in extremely well equipped and luxurious surroundings, and has proved to be a very popular and relaxing holiday destination. Further details are available on request or at www.theoldministershouse.co.uk.

The attention to detail, specification and proportions are immediately evident on entry through the welcoming reception hall which leads to a large living room with a fireplace and wood-burning stove, a generous dining room with a fireplace and electric stove, a spacious bedroom with built-in storage and modern en suite shower room and a kitchen with a range of wall and base units including a large central island with breakfast bar and a range cooker. There is also a useful cloakroom and boot room connecting to a fitted laundry.

A door from the kitchen leads to a part-weatherboarded riverside suite which provides a spacious principal bedroom with patio doors to a decked terrace, dressing area and two modern en suite shower rooms, easily convertible to two separate bedrooms if required. A neighbouring living room with vaulted wood-lined ceiling with exposed 'A' frame beams and freestanding woodburning stove and a modern fitted kitchen complete the suite, the whole suitable for use as a self-contained annexe if required.

The first floor presents four spacious king-sized bedrooms, all with modern en suite bathrooms.

The grounds feature an outdoor hot tub area, large gas barbecue with dining area and a raised decked terrace off the riverside suite with views over the River Druie, all ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining.
