Fern Lodge is an attractive and unique family home set in a quiet residential road, close to the centre of the popular Deeside village of Aboyne. The living areas are spacious and well laid-out with a bright and inviting open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room at the rear of the property, with french doors leading to the large patio and gardens. The kitchen/breakfast/family room lies at the heart of the home with an electric Aga warming the property centrally. There is a substantial formal drawing room with dual aspect windows, a double height ceiling, inglenook fireplace and french doors leading to the rear patio and garden. The open-plan dining room is situated close to the kitchen and allows access to the bedrooms via the hallway and elegant central staircase. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom and utility room with ample storage and external access. Access to the additional ground floor accommodation is provided through the drawing room. This area includes a large sitting room with french doors to the patio, 3 double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes and a large family bathroom with bath and shower. This north wing of the house could be easily accessed independently to the main house with some minor changes, and would be ideal as a granny flat or for B&B accommodation.

On the first floor is the large master bedroom with dressing area and ensuite shower room. Bedrooms 2 & 3 are well proportioned, all have fitted wardrobes and Bedroom 4 is currently being used as a study. The substantial loft space provides ample storage and is accessible from the landing. The family bathroom with separate shower completes the accommodation on the first floor.

Fern Lodge is in a central position in Aboyne, a sought after village in Deeside that is popular with Aberdeen commuters. The well-respected 18 hole Aboyne Golf Course is close by and there are a number of good mountainous walks and along the beautiful River Dee. The busy village centre is only a few minutes’ walk. Aboyne has a range of shops, restaurants, a primary and secondary school and leisure facilities including a very active theatre community, swimming pool, squash court, tennis courts, a gym, bowling green, a multi-use outdoor games area, gliding club and a spa with a 9 hole golf course.

Royal Deeside is a haven for the outdoor enthusiast with a wide and varied range of sporting activities, with many leisurely and challenging walks on the doorstep and the ski centres at Glenshee and the Lecht are within a short travelling distance. The River Dee is one of the most popular salmon rivers in the World and the River Don is famous for its trout. Deer stalking, grouse and pheasant shooting can be accessed in the locality. The area is renowned for the quality of life with beautiful pinewoods, open moorland and traditional farming.

In a superb location, the property is approached along a tarred driveway and sits within approximately 0.59 of an acre of enclosed garden grounds. The garden is laid to lawn with mature borders and is surrounded by mature trees. There is a large patio to the rear of the house, which enjoys views of the garden from the kitchen and is wholly private due to a large fence. There is also a double garage with remote controlled electric door and a greenhouse to the rear.
