Lodge with a view is horselover’s dream

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - YOUR HOME -

When Aber­do­nians have been look­ing for some­where for a day out, Lu­nan Bay, with its lovely dunes and soft, sandy beaches, has al­ways proved a pop­u­lar choice.

Over the years, the bay has at­tracted vis­i­tors rang­ing from Vik­ings in the 10th Cen­tury to gen­er­a­tions of 20thCen­tury hol­i­day­mak­ers.

Now there’s a chance to own a unique tim­ber­framed house within easy walk­ing dis­tance of the fa­mous beach.

Sit­ting at the end of a well-main­tained, tree­lined drive­way, a mile from the vil­lage of In­verkeilor, Balnabrechan Lodge of­fers com­plete pri­vacy. Both Mon­trose and Arbroath are less than 10 miles away.

The log cabin – on the mar­ket at of­fers over £595,000 – is all on the one level and nicely pre­sented, with a won­der­ful spa­cious liv­ing area fea­tur­ing a cen­tral wood-burn­ing stove. There is a large kitchen/liv­ing area with an oil-fired cook­ing range. It is ex­tremely well laid out for both fam­ily liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ing.

Charm and char­ac­ter are the two words that sum up this cabin.

It has four bed­rooms, the mas­ter en suite, and en­joys un­in­ter­rupted views from all rooms. Two pa­tios ben­e­fit from all-day sun and of­fer the added lux­ury of beau­ti­ful sun­sets.

The lodge sits in more than six acres of Grade 3.1 arable land, which is pre­dom­i­nantly laid to per­ma­nent pas­ture. There are four graz­ing pad­docks, all of which are fully fenced with an elec­tric mains fence guard around each one. Each also has wa­ter troughs ser­viced by mains wa­ter.

In ad­di­tion, there is a flood­lit sand school, which is bounded by post and rail fenc­ing. Out­build­ings in­clude a sta­ble com­plex based on an Amer­i­can barn sys­tem, with con­crete floor and in­su­lated roof, hous­ing four 14ft x 14ft Lod­don loose boxes, each hav­ing its own outer win­dow and au­to­matic drinkers.

There is also a shower area, tack room and a stor­age area.

In ad­di­tion, Balnabrechan has an ex­ten­sive por­tal-framed steading with tim­ber walls, two triple garages of brick con­struc­tion with elec­tric doors, as well as a gen­eral pur­pose store.

Lucie Howat­son, han­dling the sale for sell­ing agent Gal­braith, said: “Balnabrechan Lodge is a su­perb one-off pack­age that of­fers ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­ni­ties for ei­ther eques­trian en­thu­si­asts or those look­ing to build a sig­nif­i­cant ru­ral busi­ness in an ex­cel­lent lo­ca­tion.

“The log cabin is a beau­ti­ful prop­erty and would be ideal as ei­ther a full-time fam­ily home or as a reg­u­lar hol­i­day get­away.

“The land and out­build­ings are of an ex­cep­tional stan­dard, and Balnabrechan’s peace­ful yet ac­ces­si­ble lo­ca­tion only adds to the charm. It of­fers a fab­u­lous life­style.”
