Overview

Oakbank is a truly unique property set within its own private grounds yet only a short distance to Elgin's town centre. Originally a one up, one down cottage, the property has been developed over the years and has had few owners since the late 1800's. The house was finally extended in 1906 in the Art Nouveau style including Glasgow School stained glass windows. The historic property still retains many of these beautiful original features and is in excellent order throughout. Oakbank comprises a grand entrance porch and hallway, drawing room, morning room, dining room, dining kitchen, two bathrooms, shower room, two guest WC's, boiler room and study. It would make an ideal family home or is also ideally suited for a boutique Bed & Breakfast. The property is within walking distance of Bishopmill Primary School and Elgin Academy and is only a five mile drive to nearby Gordonstoun School. Oakbank further benefits from original fireplaces in all reception rooms and a number of bedrooms, gas central heating, oil fired Aga, driveway providing off street parking and well-maintained, secluded garden grounds totalling approximately three quarters of an acre.
