Full Description

Enter the property at the front door into a vestibule, which, in turn leads to the main hallway which gives access to most ground floor accommodation except for the utility room and WC cloakroom. 

Immediately off the entrance hallway are two doors, one to the lounge and another to the dining kitchen and family room.

The lounge is a spacious, bright and inviting room to the front.  It features an attractive picture window which optimises the surrounding views.  In addition, the room features an inlaid stove.

The open plan dining kitchen and family room have a dual aspect to the front and rear.  The family room could be utilised as a dining area if required but the current owners use it for everyday family living and a central island with storage below provides space for dining.  The kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of wooden base and wall units with complementing worktops and tiled splashbacks.  Integrated appliances comprise electric hob and fryer with extractor fan above, eye level grill, oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge. 

Immediately off the kitchen is a utility room which offers additional storage below, a worktop incorporates the sink.  There is plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.  The room benefits from excellent fitted storage and leads to the integral garage and a WC cloakroom.  A door leads out from the utility room to the rear garden.

Returning to main hallway, an attractive staircase climbs to the upper floor.  The hallway benefits from fitted storage, with one cupboard housing the hot water tank, water filters and pump for the upper floor en-suite shower.  A partially floored attic above the main hallway houses the cold water tank. 

The hallway gives access to four double bedrooms which all, except one, have fitted storage facilities.  The largest of the ground floor bedrooms is served by a three-piece en-suite shower room.

The family bathroom is another generously proportioned room and it is fitted with a four-piece suite.

A carpeted staircase climbs to the upper floor seating area/games room which leads to the principal bedroom suite with a smart en-suite shower room.



To the front a tarred driveway provides parking for several cars and leads to the integral garage.  The remainder of the front garden is laid to lawn and stone-chip borders interspersed with shrubs and trees.  A gate along the south gable gives access to a well-kept side garden and on to the rear garden where there is a deck, large patio, and lawn.  The rear garden features a variety of well-stocked beds.  Gates give access to the side lawn which is bordered by fencing and trees to the north.  Paved pathways allow for easy access around the property and there is a rotary clothes dryer.

The garage is accessible to vehicles from the driveway and a door to the rear gives foot access to the utility room.  The garage houses the boiler and the vacuum cleaning system.


Please note that additional land may be available with the sale of the house but by separate negotiation.  Enquiries regarding this should be directed to Mackinnons, Solicitors, Aboyne, 013398 87665 or
