Property description

Tenure: Please confirm if this is a freehold property with Galbraith

Harlaw House is an exceptional Victorian country house sat in around 2.55 acres, with an elevated position overlooking the beautiful surrounding countryside and a grand double gated entrance with sweeping drive. Steeped in history, the property is believed to have been built around 1840 with a striking tower addition in 1883 to commemorate the brave citizens of Bon Accord and their Noble Provost Sir Robert Davidson who fell fighting for their country’s rights at the Battle of Harlaw on the 24th July 1411. Full of charm and character, the property offers many fine original features one would expect from a home of this stature, yet providing a good flowing, spacious and functional family home. The garden grounds have been carefully designed with rolling lawns, meandering paths and south facing patios and a full sized asphalt tennis court is encased by hedging. A paddock of around 1.2 acres lies to the east side of the house with various outbuildings meeting the needs of those with equestrian interests. A detached outbuilding provides garaging, workshop space and an indoor golf simulator.
To the ground floor one will find a traditional tower entrance with exposed stonework, main reception hall, beautiful lounge with open fire, formal dining room, south facing conservatory with vaulted glass ceiling and cathedral style windows, home office or snug, traditional style dining kitchen leading through to the family room with home cinema. Utility room with stone steps leading down to the modern laundry room with wine cellar. A mezzanine level has a large double bedroom, bathroom and w.c. creating an excellent private space for visiting guests. There is a separate stair case leading to the ground floor. On the main first floor level is the beautiful master bedroom with a southerly aspect over the grounds, and three further full sized double bedrooms. One bedroom has a stunning ensuite shower room located within the tower with exposed stone walls. A stair case leads up to an inspiring music room and stairs continue to the roof of the tower, with beautiful open views.

Harlaw House is an exceptional home in a beautiful location and rarely does such an opportunity arise.

The entrance drive is flanked by grass lawns and mature trees and the original front of the house has a circular stone chip area with traditional stone water fountain.

Much care and attention has been given to the design of the grounds to ensure privacy, functionality and superior outdoor space. The large south facing patio is encased by a traditional dry stone dyke and box hedging creating a superb designated area for outdoor entertaining and dining. Steps lead down from the patio to the rolling grass lawn.
