The South Wing, Countesswells House is an impressive family home set in a prestigious location within the city boundary and within an easy commute of Westhill, Aberdeen City Centre and Aberdeen Airport.

The B listed country house dates back to around 1750 with an addition around 1847 and was split into 2 properties in 1990 (The South Wing and North Wing). The South Wing is set over four floors and has many original features including high ceilings, bay windows, a feature staircase and open fires typical of this period, and has been upgraded and improved by the present owners. Complete re-roofing took place in 2009.

The property is approached along a private Rhododendron lined driveway which leads to a large gravel parking area at the front of the house.

On entering The South Wing a welcoming entrance hall greets you. From the hallway the accommodation flows beautifully with four elegant reception rooms on this level all with a different ambiance. The cosy family room with wood burning stove, the more formal drawing room with open fire, the dining room and the Mozolowski & Murray conservatory are all connected to create a super entertaining space and convenient layout.

Further accommodation on the ground floor comprises a study and cloakroom. There is also access to the storage rooms in the basement.

The luxury dining kitchen is accessed from the family room and rear hallway at a mezzanine level. This is a light filled room with an array of cabinets and integrated appliances, a 5 oven electric Aga, a large corner fridge and an island all finished with Corian worktops.

On the first floor is the master bedroom with separate dressing room with views over the garden and pond from the bay window. There is a bathroom with separate shower next door to the master suite. There are another 4 bedrooms, and 2 modern bathrooms, one of which is ensuite but can also be accessed from the hall on this level.

On the second floor are 2 store rooms and another potential bedroom.

There is an abundance of storage areas within this house over the four levels.

Bieldside & Countesswells is one of the most sought after locations in the Aberdeen area and is well served by local amenities. The property is in the school catchment area for Cults Primary and the renowned Cults Academy.

Aberdeen is a vibrant city and provides all the ancillary leisure, recreational, shopping, entertainment and cultural facilities one would expect of a city. There is an international airport with an ever-expanding range of domestic and European flights. There are also regular inter-city services from the city's railway station.

There are a number of private schools in the city including, The International School of Aberdeen, Robert Gordon's College, St Margaret's and The Albyn School. There are also two universities, with one dating back over 500 years and several colleges of further education.

The South Wing, Countesswells House is set within beautifully mature private grounds and is in an elevated south facing position.

There is a terrace outside the conservatory and from this fine views of the garden and surrounding woodlands can be enjoyed. There are areas of year round interest within the garden including a pond, spring bulbs, rhododendrons, camellias, a variety of fruit trees and mature deciduous, spruce and pine trees giving privacy. There is a vegetable patch, a greenhouse with vines, various garden sheds and a summer house. There is a profusion of wildlife in and around the 4 acres of land including the return of red squirrels. To the south of the property is a gate leading to Foggieton Woods for woodland walks.
