We are delighted to bring to the open market The Coachhouse, Durn Road, Portsoy. This is an architecturally pleasing granite stone built building, with slate roof – which we believe is approximately 250 years old – The Coachhouse is a B-listed building. The Coachhouse’s original purpose, as the name suggests, was to provide stabling and house the horse drawn coaches for the neighbouring Georgian Mansion House – Durn House, which is situated across the road in its own private grounds.
In more recent times the Coachhouse has become redundant for purpose and the current owner has obtained planning permission for this substantial building to be converted into a wonderful family home. The conversion should hopefully prove to be a rewarding experience to breathe a fresh lease of life into this grand looking building.
The Coachhouse is situated on the outer peripheral edge of the historic Harbour Village of Portsoy on a site extending to approximately 0.8 of an acre. The site itself has a lovely feeling of tranquility and serenity, is lightly wooded with many mature broadleaf trees and along the bottom boundary edge runs the Burn of Durn. Nestling within the grounds is the Doocot – which is an A listed building.
The plans which are in place are designed for large rooms to comprise the following:- Ground floor Lounge, Open plan dining kitchen, utility room and games room. The master suite is also on the ground floor with en-suite facilities. First Floor:- 3 double bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities.
