Marnoch Lodge is a fine Scottish small estate in the heart of Aberdeenshire with a Georgian mansion house dating from 1800. The property itself is very attractive with interior features including a mosaic-tiled floor in the hall, open fireplaces in several rooms, and hardwood timber panelling. Accommodation includes six bedrooms and five reception rooms and has been recently upgraded: the property would well suit a modern family’s needs.

Situated on the south side of the River Deveron, the house is set in around seven acres of gardens, grounds and policy woodlands, which include a croquet lawn fringed with trees set in front of the house and pretty banks sloping down to the river.

To the east is the Coach House which has been let on a weekly basis in conjuction with the fishing. The Keeper’s Cottage is the smaller of the lodges and is suitable for either permanent or temporary accommodation. To the rear of both are gardens mainly laid to lawn. Outbuildings provide useful storage and plenty of garaging space.

The fishings – 1.4km of single fishing – are acknowledged as consistent and productive for salmon, sea trout and brown trout and the fishing is predominantly fly.

The land comes to around 94 acres as a whole, with arable land, pasture, gardens, grounds, riverbank and woodland.

Marnoch Lodge is situated in the River Deveron Valley in Aberdeenshire. Aberdeen itself is 42 miles, and the small market town of Aberchirder is just two miles to the north for basic local services. The larger town of Huntly is eight miles to the south.

The guide price is £1.5m. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01330 826 812 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
