Description

Set on an elevated site of about 2 acres this traditional detached farmhouse has a south facing aspect with wonderful countryside views. The property has a recently fitted luxury kitchen from Laings of Inverurie with integrated appliances and centre island. The kitchen is open plan to a family room that features a wood burning stove. Period style features include hardwood astragal windows, panelled doors, and some decorative picture rails.

Accommodation
A particular feature of the property is the natural light that flows through most rooms. Completed in late 2017 is the luxury dining kitchen from Laings of Inverurie. Incorporating extensive base, drawer and wall cabinets, complemented with granite work surfaces, the focal point is the central island unit. On open plan is a family room making this area the hub of the house. The relaxing family room has a large wood burning stove. A generous laundry/boot room has a conservatory style finish which allows independent access into the rear garden and ample space for everyday domestic tasks. An original inner hall leads to the more formal sitting room which has triple aspect windows providing superb views, and twin door access into the front and rear halls. Heating of this room is enhanced further with an open chimney fireplace. Immediately opposite is a ground floor bedroom currently used as a study. If required, living space can be on one level as this room is serviced by the contemporary shower room with over sized shower enclosure. Fully capturing the south facing aspect, the conservatory offers uninterrupted views of the garden and countryside. A mezzanine level leads to a double bedroom and connecting door to a study. This area has potential with the necessary consents to create a principal suite of bedroom, dressing room and en suite bathroom. At first floor level are two double bedrooms both with bay windows again benefiting from the views.

Outside
Landscaped and terraced garden grounds extend to about 2 acres bounded by beech, rosa rugosa, hawthorn and hornbeam hedging. There are mature flower beds and rockeries planted with perennials, shrubs and bulbs. An elevated woodland area incorporating Scots pines, and young rowan, larch and birch trees surrounds the lawns.

Steading
This detached sandstone and slate L shaped building is currently used as storage space. Lapsed outline planning permission was in place for two houses. There is still significant potential without impacting on the location of the farmhouse. The steading has power and light.

Square Footage: 2,253 sq ft
