A MORAY mansion is currently one of the most viewed on online property site Zoopla amid the popularity of the Netflix series, Bridgerton.

Escaping to a world of high society and romance through the new period drama has become a highlight for many through the latest lockdown.

Not only are people binge-watching the show, but it seems they’re also searching for their dream Georgian-era home, with Cairnty House, at Orton near Fochabers, the most viewed Georgian-style property in the UK over the last 30 days.

The 586-acre residential and sporting estate is for sale for offers over £2,650,000 through Strutt and Parker.

The 21st-century Bridgerton-esque mansion is built in a classical Georgian design. It comes with a range of outbuildings, including a three-bedroom cottage, three inhabited dwellings, a pheasant shoot and a let farm.

Cairnty House was commissioned by the owners and built to their own design and specification, with the symmetry and proportions reminiscent of the mid-Georgian period. It is both a family home and sporting lodge for entertaining parties of shooting and fishing guests.

The home, overlooking the River Spey, was completed in 2012.

The eight-bedroom main house boasts seven bathrooms and four reception rooms.

There are 265 acres of woodland and forestry land to explore, equivalent to 200 football pitches.
