Detached steading with versatile living space and superb countryside views.


Daviot is a village with a good sense of community spirit, with a shop, church, plant nursery, local public house and new village hall. There is also an excellent primary school which is a platform for secondary schools at both Oldmeldrum and Inverurie. Oldmeldrum is a designated conservation area and is a larger village served by health, dental and veterinary practices. There are retail shops, restaurants and hotels, with a planned new supermarket. Inverurie is a bustling market town with numerous independent retailers and speciality shops mixed with high street stores and supermarkets.

The town also boasts several restaurants, public houses, hotels, supermarkets and 4 banks. A local farmers’ market is held monthly in the square outside the town hall, which itself is a local entertainment venue. Inverurie has an excellent health centre, veterinary practice and cottage hospital. There is also a choice of frequent coach or rail links to the north and south.


Within a mile of the property is the Loanhead Stone Circle. Loanhead is a fascinating prehistoric site, with a recumbent Stone Circle enclosing a ring cairn, believed to be 4000 – 5000 years old. This type of Stone Circle is unique to the north-east of Scotland. They were constructed by farming communities, and served as lunar calendars, showing the passing seasons by the way the parts of the circle framed the moon. The circle is composed of large upright stones with a huge recumbent slab flanked by pillars on the south-west side. The slab and pillars seem to be orientated to provide a view of the moon from the centre of the circle. Near the Stone Circle and Cairn is a small earthwork enclosure, constructed around 1500 BC. This enclosure seems to have been used as a form of burial ground, and it remained in use until well into the Bronze Age, around 500 BC.

Set in about 1/3 of an acre of cultivated and landscaped garden grounds, this detached stone and slate steading has a superb outlook over rolling countryside. The current owners have consistently maintained the property which boasts replacement double glazed window units, modern bathroom, shower room and sanitary ware along with a luxury kitchen installed by the highly regarded Drumoak Kitchens. Most of the everyday space is on the ground floor and the configuration is very versatile for multi-generational living.

The entrance vestibule leads into the elongated hallway which has the benefit of three built in storage cupboards and three windows with a front garden aspect. A generous, open plan sitting room and dining room has the benefit of triple aspect windows and patio doors, providing wonderful south facing views over to Oldmeldrum and Inverurie. An abundance of warmth in these two areas is provided by the multi-fuel stove. The contemporary Italian style kitchen was fitted by Drumoak Kitchens and features high gloss finish base and wall cabinets incorporating larder style units, corner carousel units with various drawer depths, complemented by contrasting work surfaces and enhanced by high specification integrated appliances. Twin aspect windows in this room overlook Bennachie. A rear porch gives access into the garden and is ideal for storing coats and outdoor wear. The family bathroom has a four piece suite with a large opaque window. Three double bedrooms all enjoy scenic views and have built in wardrobes incorporating hanging and shelf space with one bedroom also benefitting from an en suite shower room with mixer shower, w.c. and wash hand basin. Accessed from the sitting room is an inner hall with deep shelved storage cupboard and a shower room with mains shower and wash hand basin. The family room offers an informal space for entertaining and relaxation and is currently used as a bar. A staircase leads to a large landing with built in wardrobes and large window. A double bedroom is currently used as a home office and opposite is the fifth bedroom with triple pane windows and views towards Oldmeldrum. These two bedrooms are serviced by a cloakroom with w.c. and wash hand basin.
