Situated in a private setting off a quiet road on the edge of the village of Auldearn, Meadowfield Farmhouse is an imposing four-bedroom detached property in its own grounds. Constructed in approximately 1900, the house is substantial and makes excellent use of its generous interior space of 188 m2, offering much opportunity to further enhance its already significant potential.
Approached from a farm drive and onto an extensive gravel drive, the property opens onto a large hallway with an imposing wooden staircase and into a large double-aspect living room with a wood-burning stove and fire surround. The kitchen is accessed via a cheerfully painted dining room which is decorated in sunny yellow which benefits from an attractive corner wood burner and deep windows, including two that overlook the adjoining sunroom. Framed by a wide archway, the large farmhouse kitchen, with an ornamental Rayburn cast iron cooker and additional ceramic hob and an integrated electric double oven, is decorated in black and neutrals, giving a clean, modern look which maximises the open feel of the already generously proportioned space. A rear hallway leads to a whitewashed stone-built utility area and store.
The ground floor includes a very large bedroom with a substantial amount of space, offering ample room for a seating or relaxation area. This bedroom also has close proximity to a generous bathroom with white fittings and with a bath with shower over, WC, and wash hand basin, and a separate cloakroom with a WC and hand basin. The sunroom, visible from the dining room, opens onto a paved patio and offers a cheerful indoor-outdoor space that overlooks the rear of the property.
A carpeted, wooden staircase sweeps up to the first floor where there are three large bedrooms. The principal bedroom is vast, decorated in soft greys with white joinery and doors, the room benefits from alcoves, attractive corners and delightfully coombed ceilings. There is also a fabulous view of the garden and the fields beyond. The ensuite shower room has a walk-in shower enclosure and white sanitaryware and walls. A wooden balustraded landing leads to two more substantial bedrooms, both with fabulous views and decorated in soft neutrals. The smaller room has a built-in cupboard with louvred doors and a secluded layout with a generous floor area. The other is at the far end of the property and is attractively shaped and features an elegant coombed ceiling and a generous floor area. There is a stylish, light-filled bathroom with a lovely view. This is a large room that makes the most of its fittings, including a large shower-bath and elegant contemporary WC and wash hand basin. The first floor also benefits from a small storeroom with a skylight increasing the potential use of this space.
The timber-fenced garden is accessed via the sunroom, and a large expanse of lawn wraps around the side of the house. With generous proportions, a fabulous setting, and a desirable location, Meadowfield Farmhouse offers a wonderful prospect as a home for a large family or as investment potential.
