Property Description

Full description

Waulkmill, New Deer, Turriff, AB53 6UP
A delightfully secluded rural property within easy commuting distance of Aberdeen with a large 4-bedroom farmhouse, loch, amenity land and paddock extending to 14 acres or thereby. For sale as a whole or in two lots with vacant possession. EPC - Band E

The property comprises:

Lot 1 - Waulkmill Farmhouse, loch and amenity land extending to approximately 1.75 hectares (4.32 acres) or thereby.

Waulkmill Farmhouse
A spacious traditional 1 storey stone built property with a single rear wing extension and extended approximately 30 years ago. The property has been in the same family for 2 generations and, having recently been redecorated, has the potential to form a very comfortable family home.

The internal layout and room sizes are shown on the attached plan but in summary comprises:

Ground Floor
Kitchen with dining area, bedrooms 3 and 4, shower room, hall, living room and sitting room

First Floor
Bedroom 1, bedroom 2 and family bathroom

The property benefits from oil fired central heating and is double glazed throughout.

Providing additional headroom and accommodation upstairs is a large mansard dormer running the length of the front elevation. There is a garage attached to the rear of the house which provides car parking or additional useful storage.

The south facing house overlooks a very large attractive lawn which runs down to the loch. The lawn has been landscaped with a number of small specimen trees to add to the amenity value of the property.

Loch
Formerly part of the successful Waulkmill Fishery, the loch extends to 4.32 acres or thereby (including adjacent amenity land) and is a delightful addition to the property. Although the loch has not been fished in recent years we understand it could easily be restocked to provide fishing or simply enjoyed as is. There is a small island at the middle of the loch which can allow families to recreate their own 'Swallows and Amazons' adventure or indeed develop a wildlife haven.

The loch is supplied with water abstracted from the adjacent burn into the larger loch on the seller's remaining land before it runs into this loch. There is a wooden sluice at the eastern end of the loch that returns excess water to the burn or can be opened fully to empty the loch if required. The outlet sluice has recently been serviced and the purchaser will undertake to maintain it in good working order.

Summerhouse
Overlooking the loch is a good sized wooden summerhouse which was built by the vendor extending to approximately 26 sq. metres or thereby. There is a full length, south facing balcony extending out towards the loch and landing stage. The current owner often holds barbeques at the summerhouse and keeps canoes on the loch.

Lot 2 - Field extending to 5.70 hectares (14.09 acres) or thereby
The land immediately to the east of the house forms a large paddock extending to approximately 5.70 hectares (14.09 acres) or thereby and is currently in grass. The land is well fenced and the boundaries can be seen on the enclosed OS Extract. The land is graded by the Macaulay Institute of Soil Research as grade 3(2) and is in good productive order. The land has the potential to be used for a variety of uses, subject to the requisite permissions, including a small livery business or even a campsite.

Access
The drive from the public road is included with the property and no rights of access along the track will be retained by the vendor.

In the event that the two lots are sold separately then a servitude right of access from the main road to the entrance to Lot 2 closest to the main road would be provided.
