There is plenty on offer with this great home near Huntly, writes Cheryl Livingstone.
It’s no secret that the further you move away from a city, the more you will get for your money in the property market.
But even with that in mind, there are still some offers that surprise me.
Take Moss-side Stables Croft in Rothiemay, by Huntly, for example. This large, four-bedroom bungalow, stables and nine acres is now on the market for offers over £350,000.
It’s a fantastic price given how much you are getting for your money – and given the condition of the bungalow.
The bungalow has been beautifully maintained and decorated to create a very stylish finish. The kitchen has a lovely contemporary feel while still remaining practical with features such as an American-style fridge, integral dishwasher and patio doors leading to the garden.
The lounge is another huge space with plenty of room for free-standing furniture and is a bright and airy room thanks to the large window. There is also a second sitting room which has french doors bringing the outside in. There are four bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and family bathroom.
Outside, there is a driveway of chipped stones providing ample parking space plus a double garage and back garden.
The stables feature six stalls with rubber mating, concrete floor and electricity supply and tack room space – great for those looking for equestrian facilities. There is also a purpose-built manege and land extending to around nine acres.
Moss-side is located around six miles from Huntly and seven miles from Keith, both of which have an excellent range of shops, recreational facilities and local services. The village of Rothiemay itself has a general store and post office and a hotel. There is also a train station in both Huntly and Keith with excellent links to Inverness and Aberdeen.
