The latest quarterly report from the ASPC gives a reassuring picture of local market activity, with the house price index remaining, mostly, in the positive. The change in quarterly price is +1.5%, while the annual change is -0.5%. Taken over five years, the index is marginally positive at +0.4%. While the figures are reassuring, it may well be that our local market is yet to feel the strain of the general economic background and only time will tell whether this will be reflected in the remainder of 2023. Buyers’ wariness over the short term may well affect property sales as they effectively “sit tight” to see what happens with interest rates. This may result in a sluggish Autumn/Winter market as moving plans are put on hold, but for the moment, there is still healthy demand for properties in desirable locations and in good condition.Read More

We present to the market this unique four bedroom detached family home with generously proportioned accommodation spanning over two floors. A notable design feature of Rockville is that the living accommodation is positioned on the upper floor to optimise the views of the surrounding area.
The property is further enhanced by well-maintained gardens to the front, side and rear, an integral garage as well as off-street parking to the front.
You enter the property from the main entrance at the front into a vestibule with a cloak cupboard housing the electricity circuit breaker and smart meter. A partially glazed door with glazed side panels allows natural light into the hallway and staircase. Beneath the staircase is a large storage cupboard with lighting.
Bedroom four is a single bedroom accessible from the front hallway. It is a bright room currently utilised as a home office but it could be used in a variety of ways depending on the needs of the occupier. Benefitting from fitted storage, bedroom four has a connecting door to the adjacent principal bedroom, making it ideal for use as a nursery.
Beyond the main front hallway is the rear hallway leading to all remaining ground floor accommodation which comprises a utility room, three double bedrooms (one of which is currently used as a dining room), bathroom and rear vestibule with door out to the rear garden and another door to the integral garage.
The utility room has fitted base and wall units, sink, window plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.
The principal bedroom is a tranquil, bright and airy double bedroom which enjoys a double aspect and it benefits from fitted storage. Bedrooms two and three are also double rooms and both have ample space for free standing furniture.
Returning to the main hallway, the staircase climbs to the first-floor landing where a Velux window provides natural light and a hatch gives access to eaves storage.
The first-floor accommodation comprises lounge, dining kitchen and a cloakroom WC. The lounge is an extremely bright, welcoming and spacious room with a coal fire set in a stone surround with a slate hearth. Boasting a triple aspect, the lounge benefits from all day sun and is further enhanced by a balcony.
The dining kitchen offers ample space for a table and chairs, it is fitted with a range of white base and wall units incorporating an electric hob and eye level double oven whilst a central island provides additional work-space and storage.
A tarred driveway leads to the integral garage with recently fitted electric up and over door. In addition to the garage, there is off-street parking for several cars at the front and side.
Rockville is surrounded by lovingly nurtured and well-maintained gardens. Thoughtfully zoned, the various areas of garden can be used at different times of the day following the progression of the sun. The garden includes lawn, mature floral borders, shrubs, bushes and trees as well as a summer house, pond, potting shed, rotary clothes dryer and a greenhouse.
Viewing is essential for full appreciation of this lovely home which is conveniently located for access to local amenities including the Skene Primary School.
