Two for the price of one is a common sight in supermarkets these days but it’s not often you stand to benefit from the same type of offer when it comes to buying a house.
However, this property in Robert Street in Stonehaven does exactly that. A detached, five-bedroom home over three floors, it comes complete with a large two-bedroom self-contained apartment, which boasts its own front door and entrance porch leading into the main hallway of the house.
Built in 1896, this Victorian property has a luxurious, but genteel and old school feel about it, from the lush and mature garden, to the resplendent staircase and high ceilings.
A grand hallway provides access to all areas of accommodation, with the spacious lounge containing all of the features you would expect from a high end, period property. The panelled doors, dado and picture rails and ornate decorative cornicing transport you back to another age, and both this room and the adjacent dining room both enjoy rear aspects and bay windows, allowing for an abundant levels of natural light.
The stunning, modern kitchen helps ensure that this property reflects the very epitome of how to combine old and new, without compromises. High quality units, contrasting granite worktops and Amtico flooring are just the start, with the Aga cooker creating a genuine heart of the home.
Following the staircase to the first floor, you’ll find the master bedroom, with fitted floor to ceiling wardrobes and an ensuite shower room.
The other four bedrooms are generous to say the least, with sufficient space for free standing furniture. The first floor is also home to a large, and superbly appointed family bathroom, with bedroom two having direct access.
If all of this wasn’t enough, the property surprises with yet another gem, the games room, big enough to accommodate a snooker table. An adjoining door provides access through the games room between both homes but it could also be blocked off to create two self-contained properties.
There is a real sensation of space throughout, the ideal fit for a growing family, especially with the walled garden, which is laid to lawn, and provides a safe and secluded area for play and entertaining.
The large driveway, which has electrically operated gates for added security, leads to a double and single garage, plenty of space of those with a second or third car, or indeed anyone with a hobby that requires substantial storage.
Stonehaven has for many years been a commuter suburb of choice, with excellent road links to the city as well as the convenience of sitting on the main east coast rail line.
A mid-sized town with a village feel, and all of the amenities you’d expect, Stonehaven is the perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of the busy city, and at offers over £750,000, it’s definitely worth a drive to the coast.
