The property was designed by the current owner and has been crafted with a strong emphasis on natural materials to create a healthy and comfortable home which is at one with its surrounding environment. All structural timber and the Douglas Fir cladding was sourced in Morayshire. The house is heated with underfloor heating on each level which is powered by an air source heat pump, with a combination of quality tiled, carpeted and solid timber flooring throughout. The roof tiles are Ballachulish roof slates, sourced from a church in Glasgow, the external frame is insulated with Warmcel which is manufactured from recycled newspapers. The home enjoys triple glazing throughout with both external doors and one internal door connecting the porch and conservatory providing excellent thermal efficiency and comfort. The windows and doors (with the exception of the front door) are aluminium clad for ease of maintenance. An array of solar panels provide much of the domestic hot water in the summer and even a significant percentage in the winter months. All the original electrical wiring is environmentally conscious non-pvc.
The main house is approached through wonderfully laid out and interesting gardens into the spacious and bright porch which has an emphasis on glazing to offer excellent light levels and also joins both parts of the property with the conservatory and main accommodation to one side and the annexe and workshop to the other. There are beautifully created slate steps which lead through to the simply stunning conservatory space which hugs the side of the curve and offers superb levels of natural light which flood the room and offer a warming and calm ambience. There is ample space to locate as much or as little furniture as you need and it is the ideal space to sit and view the ornate gardens which brings the outside in. Two doors offer flexible access into the kitchen and living area where the units are hand crafted solid wood and designed to mirror the curve of the property and which enjoys an excellent range of base, wall and drawer units with complimentary solid timber and midnight black granite worktops as well as integrated appliances.

The glazed floor to ceiling windows and access door provide a glimpse of what is to be revealed in the magnificent sitting room and studio which envelops the top floor. The prominence of glazing to both the walls and ceiling, creates a light filled, safe and inspiring space aloft the rest of this splendid house. The warm and inviting sitting room is centred around the bespoke native hand crafted wood burning stove and offers varied views at every angle as well as access to a door opening to a Juliette balcony allowing for a wonderful vantage point as well as letting in a good flow of fresh air.
