About the Property

This is a rare opportunity to buy a very special property in a surprisingly rural part of Elgin’s sought after west-end.
The Granary is one of Elgin’s best kept secrets. Tucked gracefully away within a stunning arboretum and bounded to the rear by open fields, this beautiful detached home is a unique combination of old and new – a charming period property and part of Elgin’s built heritage (C-listed) which has been sympathetically and tastefully extended to provide a spacious, light and truly individual 4 bedroomed house. It’s the perfect property for those looking for a home with a difference or a boutique holiday residence.
The Granary has an impressive approach and you will be immediately touched by the tranquility and natural beauty of its setting. There is plenty of off-street parking for at least 3 vehicles to the front and side of the house.

Property Details

Entrance Vestibule

Wonderful covered entrance to the property.

Family Room

From the front door through a vestibule, you’ll find the welcoming Family Room which is dual aspect with picture windows looking out to the attractive garden. The fitted bookcases are hand-crafted from re-cycled whisky mash tuns and compliment the warm oak floor. With the cosy multi-fuel Montrose stove, these features infuse to create a snug sanctuary - ideal for curling-up with a good book and a dram.

Inner Hall

Off the family room, the inner hall gives access to the guest wc, the stairwell to the first floor of the orginal building (and then to the bathroom and bedrooms 2 & 3) and to the contemporary extension which was built in 2006.

Guest WC

Small but perfectly formed as they say...........

Upper Landing

Carpeted staircase with window on half landing to the upper landing with storage cupboard. 2 ceiling light fittings, radiator and carpet. Enchanting period low height windows.


The spacious family bathroom with bath and separate shower is in a fresh, neutral white. Hatch to loft space. Large rear facing window. Ceiling light, Xpelair, radiator and engineered Oak flooring.

Bedroom 2

Double bedroom, stylishly appointed with lovely large window bringing in wonderful natural light. Double wardrobe with 2 sliding doors. Ceiling light, radiator and carpet.

Bedroom 3

Double aspect double Bedroom with two double wardrobes. Ceiling light, radiator and carpet.

Dining Kitchen

The kitchen/diner is a spacious hub which links old with new and comes with a large Belfast sink, oak worktops, Wellman fitted units and integrated fridge/freezer. The freestanding dishwasher, washing machine and Smeg electric range cooker can also be included. Dual aspect windows and ceiling Veluxes make this a bright, sociable room which will appeal to budding chefs, families and guests alike.


The second larger lounge which flows from the kitchen/diner has a much more contemporary feel with windows and french doors on three aspects. Bathed in natural light all day round, it's a perfect, peaceful space for being creative, musical or simply taking some time to unwind. Both public rooms open out on to the delightful rear garden which is a haven of privacy and benefits from artisan dry stone walling and established planting ranging from lush ferns and rhododendrons to cottage garden perennials.

Stairwell and Landing

A staircase leads from the Lounge to the upper landing in the extension giving access to the main bedroom with en suite wc and the home office or 4th bedroom.

Bedroom 1

The master bedroom with en suite WC has a triple aspect which provides a relaxing light and a fully glazed door leads out to a balcony where you can take in the captivating countryside views across open fields to the Morriston estate and The Oakwoods

En Suite WC

Again, small but perfectly formed. It should be noted too that there is sufficient room in the bedroom to extend and include a shower if necessary.

Office or Bedroom 4

Currently used as a Home Office and Studio, this 4th single bedroom is dual aspect with excellent light and ambience.


The Granary is beautifully showcased by its adorable garden. Access is via the gated and private driveway of OldMills House (which The Granary has a formal right of access over). Despite the extensive impression, the secluded garden is a very manageable size on two levels with plenty of places to sit out privately and enjoy the wonderful views across the open countryside. Outside there are external security lights and electric sockets, an outdoor tap, coal bunker and a small shed for bikes and garden equipment storage which has the potential to be extended, subject to appropriate consents. A wrought iron gate provides easy pedestrian and bin access directly onto the public Oldmills Road where there is also further space to park.

Privacy, peace, space and rural tranquility yet with all the amenities of the town and the world beyond being very accessible - The Granary really has to be seen to be completely appreciated.

Fixtures and Fittings

The fitted floor coverings, curtains, blinds and light fittings will be included in the sale price. Some furniture can be included subject to separate negotiation. The Kitchen appliances will all remain too and their inclusion will be reflected in the final sale price agreed.
