Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in 1850 the property has had an interesting history including spells as a Victorian laundry, a popular bed and breakfast and most recently a lovely family home. The location of the property, in a popular street in Banchory means the property can be used as for residential or commercial purposes.

The welcoming, spacious entrance hall, which has an adjoining cloakroom, leads to the impressive dining kitchen. With a traditional theme, the kitchen has a beamed ceiling, a range of fitted units, a Belfast sink and a central island with a utensil hanging rack over. A green Rangemaster cooker is a focal point within an Inglenook. From the kitchen there is access to the utility room which has space and plumbing for a washing machine, fridge and dishwasher. There is a door from the utility room to a courtyard.

There are two well proportioned reception rooms with a connecting hall with a walk in study/store off. The family room/dining room has a gas fire in an ornate fireplace. The sitting room has an electric fire with a wooden mantelpiece and marble hearth and glazed French doors lead from the sitting room to another courtyard garden.

The staircase to the first floor splits left and right to 2 ensuite bedrooms in one direction and the remaining accommodation is on the other side. This arrangement could easily lend itself to a bed & breakfast business, if desired. The ensuite shower rooms are modern and the bedrooms are spacious and neutrally decorated.
