The Free Church Manse is a beautiful Victorian property, bought from the church by the present owner in 2002 and has been extensively renovated and extended. The 0.75 (approx) acre site is located on an elevated position within a select cul-de-sac in the heart of Kingussie and offers outstanding views over the valley to Ruthven Barracks and the Cairngorm Mountains beyond.
The property, which benefits from bio-mass central heating, double glazing, detached garage with mezzanine storage, timber log cabin and electric gates. Some of the original character has been retained in the main house, such as doors, skirtings and facings, decorative cornicing and pitch pine staircase and balustrade. The extension, built in 2002, benefits from underfloor heating throughout, is linked to the original house via a South facing sun lounge and opens out onto a walled patio. This extension also offers potential to convert to a self contained unit, suitable as 'Granny' annexe or for letting purposes.
