The month of January always tends to bring a sense of gloom following the celebrations and festivities of December but it’s also a time when some top bargains can be had.
This modern property in Aberdeenshire, only four years old, certainly meets the criteria for a “great January buy”, offering five bedrooms and executive style living at offers over £370,000.
Located in the sought after Castle Park development in Aboyne and finished to the highest standards by AJC Homes, this is the perfect property for a growing family, combining rural living with all of the amenities you’d need.
As you enter the welcoming hallway, which contains useful under stair storage, double doors lead you into a cosy and large lounge, featuring its own wood burning stove. The stylish nature of this room will already give you a good idea of how elegant the rest of the property is, and beyond a shadow of a doubt the spacious open plan kitchen and dining area to the rear will be the hub of the home.
The kitchen itself is designed with modern living at its heart, incorporating an extensive range of high quality white base wall units as well as wood effect worktops and matching splashback.
Built in Neff appliances include an oven, ceramic hob and extractor hood, fridge, freezer and dishwasher – pretty much everything you’d need when you move in.
The dining area, which is large enough to accommodate families and visitors, opens up into a relaxed family room, with French doors allowing for plenty of natural light to flood in. Just off the kitchen is the important utility room, with more than adequate space for a washing machine and dryer and with the added benefit of access to the garage.
Upstairs in what is an airy landing you’ll find a considerable master bedroom, which not only has an elegant ensuite, but enjoys stunning views to the south. The second bedroom also benefits from its own ensuite and the remaining three double bedrooms are well served by a contemporary family sized bathroom.
Externally there is all the room you might need for a family, young or getting older. The garden at front of the property is neat and tidy and mostly laid to lawn along with some shrubs, with adjoining lock block driveway providing room for three cars.
To the rear is a substantial, well maintained garden, again predominantly laid to lawn, but with the addition of spectacular views across rolling fields.
Aboyne itself is an active community, with primary and secondary school provision, a village hall, doctor’s surgery, swimming pool and selection of independent shops. With Banchory only a short drive away, you’re never too far away from most of the services and facilities you’ll require.
The start of the year might feel a little flat, but buying your dream home at a great price might be just the thing to lift those January blues.
