The Property
An unique opportunity to buy an intriguing 5 bedroom detached house, category C listed, 6-bay Canadian design Arts and Crafts style bungalow retaining fine interior details. Designed by renowned Architect Alexander Ellis, brother In-law of the owner, and built in the late 1890's by the prominent Aberdeen Master Mason, John Morgan for his own personal use as a hunting lodge and country retreat. Having visited Montreal, he came home with some new ideas about Architecture, and built 'Woodcote', a bungalow after the manner of much of what he saw on the outskirts of Toronto, and Montreal. The property is set in approximately 1 acre of secluded private garden grounds. Clearly defined areas with well established shrubs and trees as well as a small woodland area at the bottom of the garden.

Torphins lies at the heart of Royal Deeside, 22 miles west of Aberdeen between Banchory and Aboyne, and is within an easy commuting distance to Westhill, Kingswells and Aberdeen itself. Within Torphins there are local amenity shops, while there is also a primary school, a private nursery with after-school care, an excellent health centre, veterinary practice, public park, tennis courts and a golf course. Secondary schooling is available in nearby Banchory and Aboyne. A regular bus service operates directly to Aberdeen and nearby towns.
