Blevie house, located in a rural setting at the edge of the village Rafford, was bought by Graham and Sheena Thompson in 2014.

It has since undergone a substantial renovation project, leaving the house with a modern heating system and updated decor. Despite the modernisation, Blervie has kept its true character with Historic Scotland listed features.

During the renovation, memorabilia was discovered indicating the house has been used during World War 2 for army training!
