Description

In a fabulous location slightly above the beautiful River Lossie, this property offers the type of family home usually only seen in storybooks. The house was constructed in 1757 and has been converted into two self-contained apartments. Retaining many period features, the property on offer is a four-bedroom 194m2 maisonette occupying the ground and first floors. It is entered via a shared drive, which leads to a large private garden and parking area.

Access to the home is through a heated conservatory that spans the width of the property. There is space for several zoned areas of furniture and it has a combined shower and utility room at one end close to the entrance to the kitchen. The main entrance to the house, also located in the conservatory, is via a panelled vestibule, which opens into a small hallway with decorative square panelling. The living room is to the rear of the property. A marble fireplace with an inset cast iron wood burner, large double aspect sash windows with wooden shutters, including one with a river view and a high ceiling make this a beautiful feature-rich room that is still relaxed and comfortable.

The kitchen is in a galley layout, with a space for a butcher block or table, the floor and wall cabinets are white with a black worksurface, which accentuates the six-burner gas stove and range-style oven nicely. The ground floor has two large bedrooms, the first is double aspect with almost floor-to-ceiling windows and shutters and there is an en-suite with a curved shower enclosure, WC and pedestal wash hand basin. The second is a charming space decorated in striking purple that complements the light from its deep-set, pretty casement window.

Carpeted, and with metal balusters and hardwood handrails typical of the era, the staircase features the same square panelling as the hallway. Opening onto a landing naturally lit by a cupola, the two first-floor bedrooms are slightly smaller than those on the ground floor but still impressively spacious. One is panelled to dado height and has a window seat. A coombed but high ceiling adds even further charm and elegance. The final bedroom is especially interesting. Currently used as a child’s bedroom, it also has a coombed ceiling, as well as a shower, wash-hand basin and built-in wardrobe. A key feature of this room, however, is the carpeted secret space at the back of the wardrobe. This could be kept as storage but is currently used as a delightful secret playroom – the stuff of many childhood dreams.

A recently installed family bathroom is tiled to half height and has a curved bath with a handheld shower, WC and pedestal basin. The garden is to the front of the house, walled on one side and fenced on the other. It has pathways, patios and lawn spaces and features a play area, mature trees and flower beds. Lossiebank House is a stunning home that is full of intrigue and detail. It offers a beautiful and conveniently located home for a family, especially one with a sense of fun and creativity.

ABOUT ELGIN
A former Royal Burgh of Moray, Elgin is a popular city just one hour from Inverness and 90 minutes from Aberdeen. Located on the A96, the Elgin is ideally placed for some of the major centres in Northern Scotland, as well as architecturally and historically significant buildings, including Elgin Cathedral and world-class distilleries.

With outstanding scenery and a famous past, Elgin is popular with visitors but has also grown into an important commercial centre in its own right. Often described as a City, Elgin has a natural dignity and attracts high-value brands, giving the area a feel of luxury but in a way that is accessible and welcoming. Elgin is well provided with local services, being home to UHI Moray, Dr Greys Hospital, doctors, dentists, and many independent businesses. There are a number of primary schools and a high school, and Gordonstoun School and Aberlour House are just 15 minutes away.
