Bob Dylan, a highly accomplished musician and artist, has owned Aultmore House, a grand mansion situated in Nethy Bridge within Scotland’s beautiful Cairngorm National Park, for 17 years. Recently, Dylan has put the property on sale, with offers starting from £3,000,000 (US $3.9 million), as reported by TopTenRealestateDeals.com.

Aultmore House is an elegant Edwardian Country manor that was completed in 1914 and has been meticulously maintained. It underwent significant renovations in 2007/8 to update the wiring, heating, and water systems while preserving the home’s original charm and character. The mansion, which can be accessed through a private tree-lined driveway, spans an impressive 18,357 square feet and boasts 16 bedrooms, each offering picturesque views of the surrounding gardens, as well as 11 bathrooms.

The stunning entrance hall features a limestone staircase adorned with wrought iron and wooden balustrades. The mansion includes four reception rooms, including a music room, all featuring Adam-style marble fireplaces. Additionally, the dining, sitting, drawing, and billiards rooms are equipped with open fireplaces. Various entertainment areas, such as a lounge, sunroom, and garden room, provide ample space for relaxation and enjoyment. The property also comprises three kitchens, along with a basement that includes storage rooms, a workshop, and a coal cellar.

Surrounding the mansion are 25 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, complete with gardens adorned with fountains, statues, and stone gazebos. The estate also features three cottages that have been rented out to holidaymakers. In the past, the property has served as a wedding venue and was even featured in the BBC series “Monarch of the Glen.” The estate is renowned for its historical and architectural significance.

Aultmore House is located within the breathtaking Cairngorm National Park, surrounded by mature forests and offering stunning mountain views. The area is known for its diverse bird life, with ospreys and the rare capercaillie nesting nearby. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy various activities such as hiking, biking, and fishing, with the renowned fishing spot, the River Spey, only a mile away.

For those seeking additional experiences, the Whisky Trail begins nearby, and numerous castles are within a short drive. There are also several golf courses in the vicinity, along with the Cairngorm ski area. The nearby village of Nethy Bridge offers charming pubs and a local atmosphere, while the town of Aviemore provides a wider range of shops and restaurants. Secluded and private, the estate offers a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
