Traditional country house with a beautiful interior

Ardgilzean House is a magnificent period country house located amidst picturesque surroundings with approximately 27 acres.

Brought to the market by Strutt & Parker, Ardgilzean House is an exceptional traditional home located on the edge of the town of Elgin.

The house dates from 1897 and is a magnificent example of Victorian architecture with its distinctive looks and extensive, flexible accommodation. The property boasts a number of traditional features including wood panelling, ceiling coving, fireplaces and raised skirting.

You enter Ardgilzean House through an impressive reception hallway with distinctive wood panelling, staircase and a large wood burning stove in the corner, all of which combine beautifully to create a magnificent first impression.

The two large, front facing principal reception rooms are located either side of the hallway, both of which have a host of features and a bright and airy feel. The drawing room is a beautifully proportioned room with bay window and fireplace with inset open fire. The formal dining room is equally impressive with an array of traditional features.

To the left of the reception hall is an inner hallway leading to a sitting/television room with a large open fire and beautiful leaded glass windows and further along the corridor a magnificent billiards room which enjoys fantastic views over the gardens.

To the right of the reception hall another inner hallway leads to the kitchen which comes with a range of fitted units and an Aga. There is a separate informal dining area. Also to the rear of the house are 2 pantries, a utility room, a boiler room, storage cupboard and a boot room/wc.

The upper level is accessed via a stunning, bespoke staircase as well as a further smaller maids staircase adjacent to the kitchen. A beautiful landing leads to the spacious Master bedroom which has an en suite bathroom. There are six further bedrooms, 2 with en-suite facilities and a family bathroom.

This property has 27 acres of land.

The property is set in established private, garden grounds which are laid mainly to lawn and bounded by mature trees and shrubs. There is an area of amenity woodland on the boundary of the property and a number of useful outbuildings, which include the former stable adjacent to the main house.

Whilst in need of refurbishment, it provides a fantastic development opportunity, subject to the appropriate permissions. In the past, the grounds have been used for equestrian purposes and this could easily be re-established if required. There is a detached garage block with four garages, storage and a large summer house conservatory attached. The grounds extend to approximately 27 acres in all.

Ardgilzean House is perfectly positioned for the commuting client looking for a home and lifestyle amongst some of the finest scenery in the region.

The local climate has led to the Moray coast being referred to as the “Riviera of the North”. Elgin, the administrative and commercial capital of Moray has a long and fascinating history. Elgin Cathedral, known as the Lantern of the North, was established in 1224 by Alexander II as the seat of the Bishopric of Moray.

Other attractions include Pluscarden Abbey, the Biblical Gardens within Cooper Park, Spynie Palace and Elgin Museum. There are also a range of local amenities at Moray Leisure Centre including swimming, skating, curling and squash, a local cinema and a selection of local distilleries.

The property is located only 28 miles away from Inverness Airport which is the air gateway for the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. The property is conveniently located off the A96 providing easy access to both Aberdeen and Inverness. Both Inverness and Elgin provide extensive retail parks and shopping centres as well as many entertainment, cultural and leisure activities.
