Attinlea is a property that will definitely impress

Attinlea is a magical Highland retreat in a truly outstanding location with breathtaking views over the local countryside to the Cairngorm mountains.

Presented to the market by Strutt and Parker, This highly desirable property is a clever culmination of architecture, flair and imagination all of which combined has created a magnificent home. Attinlea is a property firmly rooted in tradition with charm and grace whilst successfully blending old and new in a dynamic way.

Originally consisting of two individual old croft buildings, the current owners appointed the highly respected architect Lachie Stewart and tasked him with merging the two cottages together.

This project was carefully and sympathetically project managed and culminated in the creation of the tower in the middle. The original croft houses are effectively now wings to the tower.

The dining kitchen at Attinlea

With limestone floors, stone fireplaces and turreted staircase, Attinlea provides a host of features along with more modern additions such as underfloor heating and en suite bedrooms.

The main entrance is accessed via a small courtyard to the front which leads into a broad reception hallway. One of the many fantastic design features of Attinlea is the space for grand scale entertaining. This is evident on entering the large open plan sitting/dining area, also a great space to relax, unwind and enjoy the views and idyllic surroundings.

The galley style kitchen and pantry is located off the dining area. A doorway from the open plan area leads into the tower and sitting room which has a window seat, large open fireplace and window shutters.

The spacious, bright living room

The inner hall leads to the library, bedroom and box room above. There is a further large double bedroom with a spacious en suite and a staircase from the hall leads upstairs to a floored, lined attic room/ studio.

A stone spiral, turreted staircase leads upstairs to two beautifully appointed bedrooms, both with en suite facilities.

The immediate garden area includes a courtyard and a number of flowerbeds, herbaceous borders and lawn. There is a further area of woodland, rough grazing and amenity ground totalling around 23 acres.

There are some useful stone built outbuildings which are currently used for storage, coal shed and wood store.
