Detached steading with self contained wing and far reaching countryside views


Set within a rural landscape, Wardhead Steading offers superb countryside views with the benefit of being a mere 4 miles from Insch, and enjoys easy access to both Aberdeen and Aberdeen Airport, on the A96. Insch offers a range of local amenities including leisure facilities and a further, more extensive range of shopping facilities is available in Aberdeen. The north east of Scotland is famed for its outdoor pursuits, including salmon fishing on the nearby Deveron and on the Don and Spey. There are golf courses at Insch, Alford, Huntly and Inverurie, together with famous links courses at Royal Aberdeen and Cruden Bay, and Trump International Golf Links at Balmedie. Skiing is available at the Lecht and at Glenshee. Insch railway station, on the Aberdeen to Inverness line, is easily reached and there are regular mainline services from Aberdeen, including a sleeper service to London. Primary schooling is available at Kennethmont and Insch with secondary schooling in Huntly and Inverurie. There is private schooling in Aberdeen including Robert Gordon's College, the Hamilton School, St Margaret's and Albyn as well as the International School of Aberdeen. There are two universities and several colleges of further education. Gordonstoun is also easily reached.


Converted and completed to a high specification, this detached granite steading is set in farmland with far reaching countryside views. An attractive feature throughout is the extensive use of hardwood finish doors, door frames, skirting boards and a combination of hardwood and tiled flooring. Bath and shower rooms are fitted with white sanitary ware.

An entrance porch gives access into the reception hallway which
benefits from a large window allowing a flow of natural light. A
cloakroom is fitted with white sanitary ware and a column style radiator. Useful for outdoor wear is a walk in boot room and shelved storage cupboard. The delightful sitting room frames a particularly large arched window and deep sill which capitalises on the stunning view. From the entrance hallway a staircase provides access to the first floor gallery area overlooking the sitting room and provides a quiet area for a study/office room. Returning to the ground floor, the large, dining sized kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of base, drawer and wall cabinets and boasts a two oven black Aga which is currently not in working order. Everyday domestic tasks are catered for in the laundry room which gives independent access into the garden. The family/dining room is off the kitchen and has French doors into the garden, which again takes full advantage of the views on offer.

An elongated hallway with triple front aspect windows provides access to the main bedroom areas. The principal bedroom suite has twin rear aspect windows and the dressing room area with built in fitted wardrobes leads into the en suite bathroom. The sanitary ware is complemented with fitted vanity furniture, spa bath with mixer shower tap and for ultimate relaxation a built in flat screen television. There are a further two bedrooms, one which incorporates a sauna cabinet. A staircase leads to two double bedrooms with built in wardrobes and family bathroom with separate shower. The far wing has a further front door which can make this area self contained, with a shower room.
Adjacent is a staircase which accesses the large studio room. Currently this room has two large Velux style windows and a shower room and has the potential to be a further bedroom/sitting room. Also on the ground floor is a door into the integrated double garage.

Square Footage: 4,004 sq ft


From Aberdeen travel through Inverurie on A96 and over the Inveramsay Bridge and then take the turn off for Oyne on the left. Go straight through Oyne to Insch and go straight over the railway crossing heading for Kennethmont. After around 3 miles you will go past Angela Davidson's studio - keep going along that road. There will be a bend to the right with a farmhouse on your left. Just after that there is a sign for Wardhouse. Turn right there and go across the railway bridge. At the T junction turn left. The steading is the 4th house on the right next to a white painted house.
