“norton villa”, richmond road, huntly, ab54 8bh

This is a superb VICTORIAN VILLA which
has been extended to provide spacious elegant
family accommodation. It is surrounded by
substantial gardens with great potential for
keen gardeners. Internally the property is well
presented and the Public Rooms, in particular,
have to be viewed to be appreciated. Many of
the original features have been retained and
modern fitments have been tastefully added.
We expect there to be considerable interest in
the property and therefore early viewing is
highly recommended. “Norton Villa” is, of
course, located in one of the most sought after
areas of Huntly and the large double feu
affords much privacy.

market town on the main A96 road
approximately 39 miles from Aberdeen and
59 miles from Inverness. It is within easy
commuting distance of Aberdeen, Inverness
and Elgin and is on mainline rail and other

a Community Hospital, a choice of major
Supermarkets and Sports and Leisure
Facilities (including dining out, golf, fishing

cricket, football, swimming pool, skiing at the
Nordic Ski Centre and many more). There is
Primary and Secondary Education at the well
regarded Gordon Schools. The town has a
visible history with lovely traditional
architecture, National Trust sites nearby and
is a popular tourist centre during the summer
months, giving easy access to the Grampians,
