Aberdeenshire has long been one of the most sought after areas to buy a new home and for good reason, with picturesque towns and villages, and beautiful countryside.
Offering a slice of rural living, and in many cases, within easy commuting distance to Aberdeen, it’s no surprise that, even during a difficult economic period for the north-east the property market has continued to thrive.
The most recent figures from Aberdein Considine’s Property Monitor revealed that 1,200 properties were sold during the third quarter of 2019, up 4% on the same period last year.
However, with average prices remaining steady year on year, it remains a very good time to buy and this property in Banchory. At offers over £625,000, is a prime example of why the area is so desirable.
An unusual and stunning four-bedroom home situated in one of the town’s most sought after streets, you will be hard pushed to find somewhere with so much space, both inside and out. And just minutes from the high street, you will have the convenience of a wide range of shops and amenities, including banks, restaurants, a garden centre, library and health centre right on your doorstep.
Built on two levels, this home is certainly full of surprises, and there is an abundance of light throughout the property.
The interior is stylish yet not ostentatious, and it definitely has the feel of a family home. The large entrance hall is open plan and leads into a good sized dining space, which itself flows towards a generous but cosy lounge.
The large windows provide what is undoubtedly one of the best aspects of this property – stunning views South towards Scolty Hill. There is access to a balcony from the hall which benefits from the sun all year round.
As you’d expect in a property which has been so tastefully and thoughtfully designed, there are no short cuts in the kitchen, with high quality units from Drumoak Kitchens, granite worktops and integrated Neff appliances, as well as room for casual dining.
The master bedroom is substantial, with the en suite featuring a Whirlpool spa bath. With the second bedroom also located on the same floor alongside a cloakroom there is certainly scope for this property to be used as a bungalow with the lower ground floor accommodation used by guests.
The lower ground is home to the other two bedrooms, a well-appointed family bathroom, study and utility room. You’ll also find an entrance to the rear of the home and a driveway.
The double garage is larger than most, with more than enough room for two cars but also sufficient space for either a work area or a home gym. Above the main floor is considerable loft space which on one hand allows for plenty of storage but, subject to planning permission, could also be extended.
The green fingered will absolutely love this property, with a garden that, at half an acre, should inspire the most passionate of gardeners.
A second driveway, together with two sheds and a greenhouse complete what is a unique property, and a home that will suit any growing family.
