Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Fae Me Well is a magnificent family home in an idyllic setting with secluded garden grounds in the unspoilt hamlet of Cothal on the northern banks of the River Don. The property was originally extended in Victorian times when it became the dower house for Fintray House.

The seller has comprehensively upgraded the property to a very high standard and added an impressive kitchen extension.

From the public road, a sweeping tarred drive with granite entrance walls either side leads along a wild flower and mature beech tree lined drive.

The white harled stone property has well-proportioned accommodation over two floors. Many fine period features remain including bay windows, high ceilings, ornate pitch pine doors, staircase, and open fires.

The entrance vestibule leads to an impressive entrance hall with a beautiful stained glass window and a Victorian tiled floor.

There are three elegant reception rooms, each with a different ambiance. The living room is an inviting room with two bow windows facing south and west and an open fire with a beautiful ornate pine and gesso mantelpiece. Across the main hallway is the more formal drawing room, which is a light and elegant room. Thirdly, a formal dining room has been tastefully decorated and exudes charm and is the perfect entertaining room.

The open plan-dining kitchen with views over the garden is the hub of the house. Flooded with natural light coupled with a beautiful limestone tiled floor with under floor heating, the kitchen is a particularly inviting room. The sitting area has a gas burner as its focal point. There is a useful pantry off the kitchen area.

Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a spacious, south facing conservatory from where one can enjoy the garden and mature trees. The master bedroom suite is particularly pleasing with a well-appointed dressing room, spacious south and east aspect bedroom and a luxury ensuite shower room.

The staircase with pitch pine balustrade and handrail leads past a mezzanine shower room to the first floor. On the first floor is bedroom 2 with ensuite and five further double bedrooms, 2 are currently used as studies. There is also a family bathroom. There is also an abundance of storage with built in cupboards and a luggage room.

The Cottage
Attached to the north of Fae Me Well is a one bedroom, self-contained annex ‘The Cottage’. In good order throughout, the sellers have successfully let the property over the years.

Fae Me Well is 8 miles north of Aberdeen City Centre in the rural hamlet of Cothal. Dyce, an established residential suburb is 2 miles away, has a wealth of local amenities. Tesco and Asda supermarkets and all general facilities are available in both Bridge of Don and Dyce. Commuter access to Aberdeen City Centre is available from Dyce railway station (3 miles).

Beautifully maintained, private, mature gardens surround the house. With areas of year round interest, there is an extensive area of lawn with colourful borders of shrubs and plants. A sheltered paved terrace, accessible from the kitchen, is overlooked by an impressive Hartley Botanic greenhouse. To the south, beyond the landscaped garden is a bank of mature woodland with daffodils and bluebells that offers privacy.
