Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Upper Coullie comprises three buildings in a picturesque south facing location, but also with outstanding views to the north towards Bennachie.

The house was built in 1894 and was formerly a small croft; it has lain empty for years.

The seller owns all the surrounding land and proposes to retain the private track which divides the sites. The two steading buildings are to be demolished to make way for two substantial two storey 3 bedroom houses which are to be built in a traditional local style; they will both command excellent views over the surrounding countryside.
