The former Manse in Logie Coldstone has gone on sale.

Coldstone House is a category B listed property and sits in an elevated position with panoramic views towards the summit of Morven and Mount Keen to the south.

The house was built in 1783, with the porch and further extensions added in 1826. Constructed from stone under a series of pitched slate roofs, the house provides well proportioned accommodation over two and a half storeys.

The quality of the interior is matched by the property grounds outside, which extend to around 27.6 acres in total. To the rear of the house is a fine, traditional E shaped steading comprising a number of separate stores and byres - the most impressive of which has been converted for use as a gallery with a mezzanine level artist’s studio. The buildings provide useful storage space and, subject to obtaining the correct planning consent, may offer considerable scope for development into additional accommodation.

Mature gardens make up much of the immediate surround of the house, with a walled garden. The grounds are predominantly laid to lawn and include a hard tennis court, various borders, a number of fine specimen trees and a summer house.

The policies include mature mixed species woodland at Kirk Hill extending to about five acres and about 16 acres of good quality grazing land, ideal for those with equestrian or livestock interests.

Rod Christie, who is handling the sale on behalf of CKD Galbraith, said: “Coldstone is an outstanding country house in a wonderful setting. The category B listing gives an indication of the wonderful character of the property and the extensive array of attractive features including open fireplaces, ornate cornicing, working timber shutters, an oil fired Aga in the kitchen and large windows throughout that flood the house with natural light.

“The property is fairly unique in the area and is a wonderful size for use as a family home. The extensive grounds and gardens make it perfect for buyers who relish their own privacy and outside space and we would expect Coldstone House to generate considerable interest.”

The guide price is £780,000.For more information on CKD Galbraith visit www.ckdgalbraith.co.uk
