Location

Anderson Drive is in the sought after West End area of Aberdeen. A great number of local amenities are within walking distance as is regular transport to many parts of the city and the city centre itself is only about five minutes drive from the property. Anderson Drive provides excellent commuting times to the north and south of the city, and there is also easy access westwards to Deeside. The anticipated completion date of the AWPR in autumn 2018 will almost certainly reduce some traffic flow from Anderson Drive. Close by are the highly respected private schools of Albyn, St Margaret’s, Robert Gordon’s College and the International School. Also nearby are Ashley Road Primary School and Aberdeen Grammar School. Within a short walk is Johnston Gardens which is a small public garden which has won the Britain in Bloom competition many times thanks to its beautifully designed beds and borders displaying a wonderful variety of flowers, shrubs and herbaceous plants. Just as close is The Gordon Highlanders Museum, the only Visit Scotland 5 star attraction in Aberdeen, which tells the extraordinary 200 year story of ‘the Finest Regiment in the World!’ The property is also particularly convenient for the Hill of Rubislaw office complex.

Description

It has been some 50 years since 121 Anderson Drive was last available on the residential market, and this substantial detached granite property has provided the current owners with a wonderful home for raising a family and entertaining friends. The property has high ceilings, a large leaded glass landing window, ceiling roses and open chimney fireplace in the drawing room. Anderson Drive offers the opportunity of further development subject to obtaining the necessary building consents.

Accommodation
The vestibule leads into the spacious hallway which in turn provides access into the three main reception rooms. The drawing room is light and bright thanks to a front facing box bay and side window and sliding glass doors which open into the formal dining room. The family room has dual access from both the hallway and dining room which makes these three public rooms a fantastic circulation and entertaining space. On open plan with the family room is the spacious dining kitchen with access into the rear garden. The combination of these two rooms offers an ideal configuration for modern family living. The ground level is completed by a cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin along with a shower room with an electric shower. Stairs lead up to a large landing window which allows plenty of natural light in, and there are four good sized bedrooms along with a generous sized family bathroom with twin aspect windows. An open tread staircase with wooden balustrade leads to the particularly spacious attic floor. This room has large standing height and twin aspect windows and there is access into the eaves space. With the necessary consents this room could be very versatile and would make a particularly fine principal bedroom suite with dressing room and en suite bathroom.

Outside
Providing an entrance and exit for cars at the front of the property is a horse shoe style driveway enclosed with decorative low level garden railings. There is a small area of lawn and a good variety of plants, trees and shrubs. The enclosed sheltered and mature rear garden is over two levels with the upper level being attractively laid out in lawn and bounded by stone walls. The garden areas are cultivated and mature. In addition there is a timber summerhouse, a coal cellar and a timber shed.

Garage
Attached single garage of corrugated iron construction.
