It’s not often you will come across a property that has not only been designed by the owners, but literally handcrafted.
Any buyer of this extended property in Aberdeenshire will benefit from a home which has passion and care built in to its very fabric.
The fact that the main building contains three bedrooms does not even come close to reflecting the actual size of the whole property, which at offers over £460,000 will be one of the bargains of the year.
Set in two and a half acres, and surrounded by trees, you will be immediately transported into a secluded part of rural Aberdeenshire which is all yours.
The original structure was a farmhouse but it was fully redesigned and constructed a few years ago by the current owners, and whilst it contains all the mod cons you would expect, there is also a nod to the past with parts of the initial farmhouse structure still in use. In addition there is a self-contained bothy, with its own lounge and kitchen, shower room and bedroom space, perfect to utilise as a home working area, ideal for visitors and very attractive as a holiday let opportunity.
The entrance to the property is filled with natural light from a spectacular full length window, which leads you onto the integral double garage and cloakroom.
Open plan is the way forward for many buyers, and they will not be disappointed with the layout in this home.
The cosy lounge area, which features a wood burning stove, follows into the kitchen and dining area. It’s certainly a case of country kitchen meets modern living, with a number of handmade, bespoke units as well as a substantial range cooker and integrated refrigeration cupboard.
A sun lounge on the ground floor provides the opportunity to enjoy those warm summer days, and also appreciate the change in seasons as the leaves begin to turn bright orange.
A majestic, and yes, again, hand crafted staircase takes you to the first floor, with its sumptuous master bedroom and ensuite. Two further generously sized bedrooms, a family bathroom and study complete the house.
An endless pool, housed in a separate, fully insulated log cabin, only adds to the luxury you will already have experienced in the main property. (we did say that calling it a three bed house didn’t do it justice!)
The surrounding gardens, an understatement if ever there was one, comprises large areas laid to lawn, with a wide variety plants, flowers and trees alongside your very own stream. Oh yes, there is also a vegetable garden and, for the equine minded, the small matter of a three acre paddock.
When you consider the whole package, with the large main house, outbuildings and wonderful grounds, it brings thoughts of Beatrix Potter, and Hilltop Farm where she was inspired to create her famous characters, and authored many of her works.
Located close to Torphins near Banchory, you’re only 20 minutes from the Granite City. Torphins offers genuine village life, with a good range of shops, primary school, private nursery and health centre.
It’s often said of many properties for sale that it “has to be seen”. Well, this is no ordinary home, go and have a look, you won’t regret it.
