Hugely impressive modernised farmhouse with equestrian facilities
Fonah Farmhouse has been tastefully, imaginatively and sympathetically renovated to create a stylish, modern house within the shell of a traditional farmhouse and today offers outstanding accommodation.
A hugely ambitious programme of works was undertaken, including the addition of the leisure wing which was completed in 2017. From 2013, the house has seen a programme of thorough renovation, including the creation of a magnificent open plan kitchen and living room downstairs, together with an equally impressive master bedroom and en suite upstairs. Concurrently, the two additional upstairs bedrooms and family bathroom were reconfigured, the downstairs shower room was refurbished and a further bedroom created.
The house was fully repainted, insulation was added including under floor insulation rewiring was completed and triple glazed windows were installed. In addition a new, gas central heating system was installed, which is augmented by atmospheric wood burning stoves in the three living areas. Externally, a new stable block and a drained ménage were erected and the paddocks re-fenced.
Fonah Farmhouse is a property which has benefitted from substantial investment. It is an attractive, stone built house with a slate roof, and is believed to date from the mid nineteenth century. The house was extended around 1999, and in 2009 the front porch was added, linking the house to the garden. The new leisure wing has a timber cladding finish and box profile roofing. The house faces south over agricultural land and there are lovely views north over Rescobie Loch to Turin Hill. Given the range of improvements and the layout of the accommodation, the house is ideally suited both for modern family living and for entertaining. The outbuildings and the ménage also ensure that there is considerable equestrian appeal, while the stocked pond is a haven for wildlife.
