8 bedroom detached house for sale
Offers Over £575,000
Probably one of the finest houses in the lovely town of Forres that stands within about 1.71 acres of beautiful gardens and grounds.
Cluny is a deceptively spacious house that was built in the late 18th century, originally in the style of a classical “Regency” villa, to which there have been subsequent additions; its design is of significant architectural merit with its Doric columned portico with pediment, Monolith columns and recess door with flanking windows. It is believed to have been designed by William Robertson and enjoys a southerly aspect and is set within approximately 1.71 acres of well established Gardens all contained within a high well maintained stone wall. The house is listed Category “B” as being of Architectural and Historic Interest and is constructed of stone with three wide bays, harled ashlar margins and with a slate roof.

Approached by a short tree lined tarmac driveway, there is a wide spacious parking and turning space at the front of the house. The driveway runs past the west end of the house and round to the rear of the house where there are garages and outbuildings.

On first sight of the front elevation of the house, it appears to be a large single storey villa. However, the architects have made skilful use of the sloping site on which it sits. There is an extensive lower ground floor, the garden floor, which opens out to the rear garden. The East Wing provides further accommodation over 2 storeys. In all the accommodation in the house extends over about 7,900 sq.ft. The house has a number of separate entrances at different levels which allows the house to be easily sub-divided if required.
