A simply unmissable opportunity to acquire a traditional stone and slate cottage with a mixture of timber outbuildings in approximately 0.25 acres set within the Cairngorms National Park. With a prime location in the picturesque and popular forest village of Nethy Bridge, this property offers unbelievable potential, located in a prominent position with easy access to the fantastic village amenities. It is anticipated that the incoming purchasers will undergo a major refurbishment and extension of the existing property in line with the full planning permission which has been granted to create an amazing property in an equally sought after location.

Accommodation will cover nearly 300sqm with the completed extension and integral garage. Outside the cottage grounds are currently mainly grassed with several dilapidated timber outbuildings and so much potential. We understand that there is a larger area of land around the current house which may be available to purchase as a separate deal with another land owner.
