Inverurie, a mere 4 miles from Knockinglews, is an expanding and prosperous town situated in the valley of the River Don. Founded by David of Huntingdon, Earl of Garioch and great-great-grandfather of Robert the Bruce, the town is locally known as the Heart of the Garioch. There are an abundance of sites to visit in and around Inverurie for the history enthusiast such as the ruins of the medieval Kinkell Church, which can be found to the south of the town, a number of Bronze Age and Pictish stone monuments and many historic castles, all testament to the rich heritage of the community which is still thriving today. Excellent road and rail links provide access to the north and south including Aberdeen, Dyce, Huntly and Elgin. Inverurie itself has a bustling market town centre with a good selection of shops, health centre, library, community centre and recreational facilities which include the local swimming pool, sports centre, bowling, hill walking and golf course. Primary schooling is provided at Chapel of Garioch and secondary education can be found at Inverurie Academy.


Offering substantial living space, this linked detached steading enjoys good natural light and an abundance of large windows to take full advantage of the countryside setting and superb views. An extensive feature throughout is the use of hardwood skirting boards, door frames and doors.

The reception hallway has a large window providing views and in turn leads to the well appointed and more formal sitting room which features twin aspect windows to the front and patio doors with picture windows on either side. Particularly attractive is the exposed stone wall, housing a wood burning stove. Informal and relaxed living space is catered for with the family room with twin corner windows. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base cabinets, the limed oak style base drawer and wall units complemented by granite work surfaces. Again natural light is abundant, with two rear and a front facing window. For everyday housekeeping tasks there is a laundry room and cloakroom with white WC and wash hand basin. This room provides useful access into the garden and into the double garage. The current configuration has the benefit of a ground floor double bedroom with built in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with over bath shower and the luxury of under floor heating. A wooden staircase with stair rods and decorative balustrade leads to the first floor spacious landing with Velux window. With superb views, the principal bedroom has an en suite shower enclosure with rain drench shower head. There are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. A large attic room is an extremely versatile space with a Velux window; it is currently used as cinema style room.
