“Douglas Lodge” is an impressive, symmetrical stone and slate building set in the quaint and quiet village of Inchberry near Fochabers an attractive and peaceful village with a strong sense of community spirit. Douglas Lodge was originally built as Fochabers Railway Station and opened in 1893 and was renamed Fochabers Town Station in 1894, it subsequently closed to regular passenger traffic in September 1941. This magnificent building was then purchased in 1974 and has remained in the same family since the conversion from Railway Station to Fishing Lodge commenced, and was completed in 1975. The present owner employed the skills of a well known local architect and local trades personnel and in 2004 the modernization and updating started and was completed in 2005. The current owner has gone to great lengths to retain a wealth of period features and the character of this former Railway Station remains a intrinsic part of this unique property.
From the pillared entrance, sweeping driveway and perfectly proportioned South facing Victorian building, offers an enviable blend of elegant and adaptable living space with a huge degree of privacy and grandeur. This one off property is sure to appeal to the discerning purchaser seeking the space for a growing or extended family coupled with idyllic village lifestyle, or because of its magnificent location near the banks of the World Famous River Spey and size would continue to be a superb holiday home, fishing lodge or a fantastic B&B.
