Easter Ogil House (Lot 1)
Easter Ogil House is approached via a private tarmac driveway lined with some mature trees, colourful rhododendrons and terminates with a large parking area to the front. The house dates to the mid-19th century with later
additions and sits in an idyllic south-facing position overlooking the gardens and parkland policies beyond. The property is constructed of red sandstone beneath pitched slate roofs and has a number of architectural features
including the extended gabled stone porch, the bay window on the eastern elevation and in particular the four storey tower with crenelated parapet beneath a slated pyramidal roof complete with open decking area and weather vane. Internally the reception rooms are a particular highlight with
the sitting room connecting straight through to the drawing room via sliding doors complete with an open fireplace and large timber sash-and-case windows to embrace the wonderful views overlooking the gardens and beyond.

Smiddy cottage (Lot 2)
Smiddy Cottage is accessed off the Glen Ogil minor public road opposite the main entrance to Easter Ogil (lot 1). There is a tarmac parking area to the front. The cottage is of traditional stone construction beneath a pitched slate roof.

Estate and Farm Buildings
The estate and farm buildings are situated a short distance to the west of the main house and can be accessed off a
separate farm track. This includes a very attractive traditional range of stone and slate buildings over two storeys laid out around a courtyard. The well maintained buildings have been used most recently for machinery and equipment, garaging and workshop and the loft as an entertaining space. The courtyard area has been covered with a corrugated roof and has been used in the past for housing cattle. These traditional buildings would lend themselves to residential development, subject to gaining the necessary planning consents.
