Property Description

Full description

Lot 4 - Hill of Braiklay Farmhouse
Hill of Braiklay farmhouse is a traditional Aberdeenshire farmhouse that has been entirely renovated and modernised in recent years. Aside from being reframed and reinsulated throughout, as well as the installation of a new oil central heating system, the property has also been finished to a high standard with solid hardwood floors throughout, a practical modern fitted kitchen and well finished family bathroom tiled in marble and benefitting from underfloor heating. Storage has been thoughtfully considered and implemented throughout the house and the living space is particularly spacious for a property of this type.

The current owners have successfully applied for detailed planning permission to add a substantial extension to the property on its south-eastern corner. This affords the purchaser the opportunity to capitalise on the property's attractive setting and south facing aspect with a modern, timber clad addition that would effectively double the available floorspace. A copy of the plans are available upon request and the planning application can be viewed at on the Aberdeenshire Council planning portal with the reference code APP/2017/1968.

A timber-built stand-alone office space with services available and WC provides useful additional space that might serve in the future as additional accommodation or as a garden house. Extending to 29 square meters, this modern addition could be appropriated for use as an Airbnb or similar, given the property's proximity to popular venues such as Meldrum House. Additionally, the house is surrounded by garden ground on its southern and western flanks, which is laid to lawn and established garden plants and has a productive fruit garden with greenhouse.

Available for sale by separate negotiation is approximately 3.90 acres of good quality agricultural land.
