Built in 1911, and designed by the Scottish architect George Bennett Mitchell, this Aberdeenshire mansion is the ultimate dream home.
It is believed Craighead House in Huntly – a seven bedroom mansion – was built by the Spence family who were textile manufacturers in the town.
It is a beautiful, traditional granite house under new slate roof, with Tudor-style decorative woodwork to the front elevation, and spans three floors.
It has retained many traditional and original features, including beautiful woodwork, high ceilings, ornate cornicing and intricate plasterwork, original cast iron heaths and fittings, wooden panelling and flooring.
The decoration throughout is in keeping with the character of this impressive property which benefits from a high degree of privacy being set back from the road.
It is surrounded by around 4.85 acres of policies and woodland and there is also a Gardener’s Cottage to the south west of Craighead House. It is in need of some upgrading but would make an excellent annexe, granny flat or teenage den. The large Victorian style green house is also an impressive period feature of the property.
It is on the market with Burnett & Reid and could be yours for offers over £600k.
