Little Brownhill Farmhouse, By Ellon - An absolutely Charming Traditional Detached Stone built/Slate roofed Detached Cottage, circa 1898, enjoying breathtaking panoramic views stretching across picturesque open countryside from its enviable hilltop position, with distant views of the coastline on the north east horizon.

This most appealing home combines the character of the Original Cottage with a Contemporary yet subtle Extension added by the present owners, forming a larger lounge from which to enjoy the delightful garden aspects with glimpses of the open countryside through the mature tree lined boundaries.

Entering through the private gated driveway (an adjacent traditional property has its own private access from the shared single track road) one sees the property nestling ahead, set amidst delightful larger mature garden grounds, perhaps extending to around 0.3 acre (estimate only). The sweep/views from the gardens invite one to potter/relax outdoors on the best of days and to pause at different points to enjoy the literally breathtaking views.

The owners have been careful to retain the traditional character whilst updating to a contemporary specification. The accommodation featured over 2 levels, comprises on ground floor, rear entrance hallway/utility porch, striking formal lounge with patio door to rear sun deck/large picture window to side, very spacious dining/kitchen, central corridor hallway with entrance/exit door to garden, double bedroom (No 3)/alternative dining or family room & modern 4 piece bathroom. A staircase from the central hallway rises to the upper hallway/open study area with bedrooms Nos 1 & 2 located either side.

The specification includes, mains power, private water supply, septic tank & oil central heating. The private driveway/hardstanding provides generous parking for several vehicles.

Little Brownhill Farmhouse enjoys panoramic views across the countryside from its elevated/hilltop position, with a short shared single track leading off the main single road, to this property and an adjacent property. Entering through the gates to the farmhouse the splendid gardens are entirely private to the property extending to circa 0.3 of an acre. A most appealing combination of lawned areas bounded by established shrubs/hedging together with a mixed variety of trees & evergreens. Both open views & glimpses of the spectacular countryside stretching out to the sea on the horizon whilst shelter/privacy is also provided via the established trees. There are a number of feature areas, of particular note the central patio nestling between the trees directly in front of the lounge overlooking the countryside to the sea on the horizon. A decked area is accessed from the lounge.

The private gated driveway enters into the property with stone chipped driveway/parking area providing parking for several vehicles, bounded with both lawn and established trees/shrubs.

Access/Travel to the property - travelling North on the A90 from Aberdeen travel past the turn for Ellon, approx. 4 miles on one reaches the Toll of Birness, exit the short slip road to the left and follow the A952 for approx' 1 mile looking for a signpost on the right hand verge marked "Muirtack", opposite this is a Traditional White Painted House with Burgundy Red paintwork and a matching coloured small wall mounted postbox, turn left here, follow for approx' 2 miles to a T-junction, turn left and follow this road for approx' 1 mile with a sharp 90 degree right hand bend just a short distance before one turns right onto a short uphill single track, travel to the top and take the left hand gate into the grounds of Little Brownhill Farmhouse (For Sale Sign at gate).

Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments -

"After 30 Years in the Estate Agency Industry I remain as enthusiastic as ever, because I know there is always another property waiting to surprise me…. & Little Brownhill Farmhouse does exactly that!

I am fortunate enough to live in the countryside and although I was born and lived in a bustling city I know first-hand that if you have the opportunity to live in the country then you should seize it for as long as you can.

I recall selling a cottage for lady who had lived there for over 40 years however as she reached her 80's she decided it was time to move, she was very tearful and I sat down with her and reassured she was so lucky to have actually lived the dream that so many people dream of yet never actually achieve… that she could recall her rich memories of countryside living, rather than just dreaming of what it would have been like to live in the countryside.

In short… Live the Dream at Little Brownhill Farmhouse…. it is a Charming Character Home in a spectacularly panoramic setting. When you arrive home after a hard day's work, driving through the gate…. you will appreciate that your life is so much richer… because of where you live, because you are Living the Dream."
