This two bedroom traditional detached cottage is located in the picturesque semi-rural area of Auchindoun, near Dufftown and would make an ideal holiday home or first-time buy.

 


The Old Smithy Cottage is a delightful detached cottage located in a stunning rural location near Dufftown.  Situated near Auchindoun Castle, Dufftown (about 2 miles) provides a good range of local amenities including a variety of shops, a primary school and a doctor's surgery whilst Huntly (about 11.5 miles) to the east offers a wider range of facilities including 2 supermarkets, a mainline railway station and both primary and secondary schooling.  The city of Aberdeen is about 1 hour drive away (about 50 miles), with Elgin being 30 minutes away (20 miles).

Moray is famed for its breathtaking scenery, long sandy beaches and wildlife and offers wonderful leisure and recreational opportunities throughout the county. There are many golf courses accessible within a short drive of the property (including a very pretty course at Dufftown), whilst the region also offers superb salmon and trout fishing, including the highly acclaimed Rivers Deveron and Spey nearby. A popular tourist area, local attractions also include 'The Whisky Trail'.

Likely to date back to the mid to late 1800s, it is believed that the cottage sits on an ancient right of way between Dufftown and Huntly and may once have served as the local Blacksmiths.  Today, it has been completely refurbished to a high standard, including being completely rewired, re-plumbed,re-roofed, re-insulated with a brand new boiler,  kitchen and bathrooms, and provides characterful and well appointed accommodation over two levels.

The downstairs living space is open plan and the country style kitchen has solid 40mm worktops, a Belfast sink and SMEG large range cooker. There is ample storage in the large cupboard space under the staircase and a downstairs bathroom with electric shower over the bath. Upstairs are two spacious double bedrooms and a shower room (no wc is currently installed upstairs). 

A charming and characterful cottage, large windows flood the interior with natural light and open up the wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.  

Outside, there is a generously sized garden which to the front has been laid with Cotswold buff chips and plum slate, designed to be low maintenance, with an outside dining area next to the small stream that runs to the back of the property.  To the side of the property exists a large garden area on which a a garden room, garage or even a separate dwelling could be built, subject to the necessary planning consents. Parking exists for several vehicles.

With LPG heating, double glazing and drainage via a private sewage treatment plant, this property would be ideal for a holiday home or first-time buy and we highly recommend a viewing.
