An elegant Georgian townhouse, with spacious rooms full of character, has come on to the Moray property market.
Norwood, an impressive detached house on Seafield Place in the picturesque coastal village of Cullen, dates back to 1830. Built using dressed stone with a slate roof, Norwood has a very attractive façade and is grade C listed.
It is believed that the house was originally built for the dowager of the Earl of Seafield, although it is thought that she died before ever taking occupancy. However, hundreds of others have enjoyed staying in this lovely home as it is currently run as a successful and high-quality guest house, with a four-star rating from the Scottish Tourist Board.
From the impressive central portico with columns which greets
you upon arrival at Norwood to the tall corniced ceilings, timber shutters and large bay windows, this house can’t fail to delight. The ground-floor accommodation includes a drawing room, an elegant reception room and a well-lit sun room which could make an ideal children’s playroom or studio. Also accessed from the ground-floor hallway is the formal dining room suited for large parties and entertaining in style, a family room, a good-sized double bedroom with a substantial en suite and well-equipped kitchen.
The first floor comprises a family bathroom and a further two double bedrooms, both with en suite facilities. Continuing upstairs to the second floor, there is a second family bathroom, two double bedrooms and a single bedroom which could also be used as a charming private study.
The house, which has a guide price of £340,000, sits in a large garden which is enclosed by a stone wall ensuring it is private and secluded as well as secure for children and pets. The garden includes ample parking space for up to four vehicles, and has a garage and adjoining workshop, areas of lawn, well-stocked beds and borders and a variety of productive fruit trees.
Rod Christie, who is handling the sale for selling agent CKD Galbraith, said: “Norwood is not only a fantastic coastal property but also a fantastic business opportunity, ideal for those looking for change of pace or keen to start their own business. Cullen is a historic town located between the rivers of Deveron and Spey on the Moray coastline. There are a great range of local services and the area has become
something of a haven for arts, cultural and social events.
“Elgin and the city of Aberdeen are within easy commuting distance, Elgin is 21 miles away while Aberdeen is 55 miles. Moray is renowned as being one of the sunniest and driest counties in Scotland and its countryside and coastline has so much to offer outdoor enthusiasts. There are many tennis and bowling clubs, an 18-hole golf course and many public footpaths to explore as well as acres of long sandy beaches.
“This magnificent Georgian house offers potential owners huge flexibility. The current owners are happy to pass on this flourishing business to the new purchaser. However, Norwood also offers a spectacular family home for those wishing to re-establish the property to its original use.”
