family living. The accommodation has been well
designed with a luxurious exacting finish and

the integral double garage.

For those with equestrian interests, the outdoor

floodlit ménage; a horse walker and around 9
acres of land currently divided into 6 grazing

ACCOMMODATION
Entering from the south through the main
original entrance, there is a traditional vestibule
which in turn leads to the main entrance
hall. This hall has stairs leading to the upper
accommodation. To one side is the formal lounge
which is a delightful public room of superb
proportions and an outlook to both the side and
front. Quality wood flooring has been laid and
there is a wood burning stove. To the other side
of the entrance hall is the sitting room which is
a spacious room, set out as cinema room with
surround sound and study area. A further wood
burning stove provides a focal point sat within
a marble surround. Continuing through the
hall there is a cloakroom with white two piece
suite. You will then reach the incredible open
plan kitchen, dining room and garden room all
positioned centrally within the property. These
rooms are clearly defined, yet on open plan to
create great family living space. The kitchen
has been fitted with high quality units finished
with granite work tops including a stylish island
and the dining room has two separate windows
overlooking the garden. As one continues
through, the west facing sun room is glazed to
3 sides and has French door opening out to the
garden decking area.

The rear vestibule is a very useful space and has
a large amount of built in cupboards and tiled
flooring. The utility room is an exceptional size
and fitted with storage units, work tops and has
space for a range of utility appliances and the
separate boot room is another very useful space
with a door directly to the garden. There is also
a door between these two rooms leading to the
garage.

Continuing upstairs there is a master suite
situated to the side with a large window enjoying
the views towards Stonehaven. This suite has
a spacious bedroom area and you continue
through to the excellent dressing room with built
in wardrobes. The ensuite has a bath, wash hand
basin and w.c. Bedroom two is a further very
spacious double bedroom with ensuite shower
room. Bedroom three and Bedroom four are
located to the front with a southerly aspect and
are generous in size with bedroom 4 fitted with
extensive built in wardrobes. The master family
bathroom is situated centrally upstairs and has
a large roll top bath and a separate shower unit.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS
Blairs of Fetteresso has wonderful extensive
gardens which surround the entire house and
extend to around 0.90 of an acre. There is mature
hedging and trees to provide a good degree of
privacy and various plants and shrubs have been
carefully placed to ensure colour and interest
throughout. To the West side is a substantial
decking area, perfectly placed to enjoy the open
countryside views and provide a superb space
for outdoor dining and entertaining. Lying to the
south is an ideal enclosed vegetable garden and
greenhouse. The charming detached summer
house has again been thoughtfully placed within
the garden to maximise the southerly aspect
and open views. Regularly used by the present
owners to entertain and relax, the summer house
could also be used as a gym or separate space
to work from home. There is power & water. The
large stone chip drive way provides parking for
several cars and leads to the integral double
garage with electric remote control doors.
The integral double garage can comfortably
take two large cars and still provides a good
amount of working and storage space. The
central heating boiler is located in the garage
and there is power & light.

OUTBUILDINGS
The large 70ft x 60ft barn has the main
double sliding door entrance and a separate
pedestrian entrance. Thoughtfully designed to
provide superb equestrian facilities, this barn
incorporates four separate 12’ x 12’ loose boxes
and one 16’ x 12 loose box, all of which have
windows overlooking the ménage. In addition
to the stables there is a wash box with electric
shower & heat lamps. There is separate tack
room, feed room, workshop and toilet. Concrete
floor, light, water, electricity. This is a considerably large shed, and although currently designed for equestrian purposes, it has complete versatility for any potential buyer and could be used for outdoor equipment, car storage or indeed excellent work space.

MENAGE
There is a 42m x 40m manage, enclosed by
timber fencing and laid with all weather sandrubber
and fibre. This is a superb equestrian
facility, fully floodlit and conveniently lies
adjacent to the barn.

LAND
In total there is approximately 9 acres of high
quality grazing land divided into 6 fields, an
exercise area and perimeter track, all enclosed
by quality fencing. This land is well-defined and
located immediately to the rear of the barn
beyond a quiet country lane.

VERSATILITY & USES
Blairs of Fetteresso is currently tailored for
personal equestrian use; however there is an
incredible amount of versatility. The land is
currently quality grazing paddocks, although
previously it was successfully worked with a
variety of crops and therefore lends its self
extremely well to be a small holding. The barn
also offers excellent flexibility and could easily
be converted for other uses including simple
storage, garaging or conversion to indoor sports
facilities. The ménage was previously an area of
land with additional outbuildings, which were
subsequently removed. This may therefore
create an opportunity to build an indoor arena
or other additional outbuildings, with the
necessary permission.

At present the equestrian facilities are all for
personal use and should any potential buyer
wish to run any business or livery yard it would
be subject to planning permission and the
necessary consents.

The entire outdoor space at Blairs of Fetteresso
really does create endless opportunities and
flexibility for any potential buyer to create their
own wonderful countryside lifestyle.
