With an exceptional location in Rothiemurchus and including River Druie access, this is a very exclusive opportunity to upgrade this architecturally designed home to its former glory or realise a dream new build (subject to the necessary consents). On the outskirts of Aviemore and on the ski-road at the foot of the Cairngorms the property enjoys a one-off location and extends to circa 0.376 acres in all. The current home offers four bedroom accommodation of some 219 square metres and centres around a wonderful covered atrium to provide a calming and warm feel to the property. The rooms are arranged over one floor and comprise entrance vestibule, hall, dining room, utility/kitchen, boiler room, bathroom, four bedrooms, kitchen, shower room, lounge and an atrium with a glazed roof. Outside the house is approached via a gated driveway and the gardens extend to circa 0.376 acres to provide a haven of mature planting and lawns with a delightful wooded section which leads down to the banks of the river where a decked area would be an ideal vantage point to sit and enjoy the burble of the water. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate this unique and special prospect. Energy Performance Certificate Rating F, Council Tax Band G
