The house sits in a commanding position with distant views to the Hill of Fare, whilst to the south and west is Pitfichie Forest, an extensive area of Forestry Commission woodland. This provides excellent safe off road hacking and mountain bike trails.

The original farmhouse was built in 1896 by the Monymusk Estate and is of traditional granite construction under a slate roof. The property was purchased in 1997 by the current owners who undertook a large sympathetic extension in 2007 which more than doubled the original floor area.

The front door leads to a hall with inglenook fireplace with a striking oak curved staircase leading to the first floor. Off the hall is a drawing room and Bedroom 6 with a shower room adjacent, laundry room and store cupboard. This area could be a self-contained flat with the benefit of having unconnected services for a kitchen.

A central hall leads past a laundry room and a large store cupboard into a magnificent family room of 48m² with a wood stove which is open plan to the spectacular double-height Carpenter Oak oak-framed double storey kitchen extension which incorporates a large island unit with halogen hob and wall units with 2 Neff ovens. There is a store area with walk in larder and access to the covered car parking area (8.2m x 4.9m).

In addition, off the family room is a walk through office leading to a back hall with door to outside and a large boot/dog/boiler room and separate cloakroom.

A wide passage connects the old house with the new. A half-round staircase with feature cupola above leads to the first floor. A feature of the house is that every corner that can accommodate storage has been utilised.

The first floor includes the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and dressing area. The landing leads to a guest bedroom suite and south facing bedrooms 3, 4 and 5 and a large family shower room.

In front and to the east of the house is a sheltered mature garden with a mix of trees, shrubs and lawn. Recent additions are a vegetable area, a sunken trampoline and a granite wall terrace. There is a range of garden sheds behind the house including:
Garage 5.9m x 3.3m
Workshop 3.7m x 3.1m
Log Store 3.1m x 2.6m

The farm buildings are in two parts; a traditional courtyard beside the house with the more modern buildings to the rear.

Seven fields lying on the south side of the valley, all currently in grass. The fields are mostly subdivided by stone walls and are surrounded to the east, south and west by the Forestry Commission.

Access to the fields is off the farm road through Field 21. The fields are ideal for training event horses as they have varied contours, drops, water crossings and are very free-draining so can be used in most weathers- a virtual all weather grass gallop.
