Fabulous Period family home with landscaped garden grounds extending to an acre in the heart of the historic village of Garmouth.
Dating from the 1880s, Lemanacre has been sympathetically refurbished by the current owner who has transformed the living space including installation of a lovely Riverside Kitchen and Laundry Room, restoring the beautiful wood flooring, laying flagstone slate flooring with underfloor heating in the kitchen and bathrooms. The house has been decorated and appointed throughout with a subtle and tasteful elegance resulting in a welcoming family home exuding both charm and comfort.
The central heating system has been upgraded with new boiler and megaflow and additional radiators.
