As we leave those long, warmish summer evenings, and autumn beckons, what better than to be able to snuggle up in front of a wood burning fire, enjoying the nights as they draw in.
Well, in the case of this property in Aboyne, we’re actually talking about three wood burning fires, and that’s just the start.
Located in Gordon Crescent, Aboyne travelling west on the A93 North Deeside Road from Aberdeen and Banchory, this unique home is reached by following the main Ballater Road, passing Aboyne Green and Huntly Road.
Comprising five bedrooms spread across the ground and first floors, with the main bedroom equipped with its own dressing room, fitted shelves and substantial hanging space, it would undoubtedly suit a growing family.
This is a luxury property, combining the original granite structure with a contemporary and well-designed interior, providing something for everyone.
A wonderful, spacious entrance to the home leads through the main hall and two bedrooms, one of which contains a wood burning stove, and could be used as a sitting room if required.
The lounge, with a further wood burner, exudes a feeling a comfort, expanding into the dining area, providing the type of open plan living area which many people are now looking for.
The kitchen is superbly appointed, with a range of modern base, wall and drawer units, alongside contrasting work tops, and all the integrated appliances you would expect.
In addition, the utility room, which is located near to the downstairs shower room, provides even more space for appliances.
Perhaps the star of the show on the ground floor must be the garden or family room.
A space that allows for a substantial amount of natural light, it’s the ideal spot for both summer days, and cosy winter nights with yes, another wood burning fire. The room would also be perfect as a hobby room, and for home workers, it could easily be utilised as an office.
The three double bedrooms upstairs benefit from a beautiful family sized bathroom, which includes a walk-in shower and a stunning free standing bath.
The property benefits from an easily maintained front garden, and a rear garden that makes for the perfect suntrap, and which also includes a pond home to various wildlife.
For those with a leaning towards outdoor pursuits this could be the ideal location, with an 18 hole golf course on its doorstep as well as the Aberdeen Water Ski Club, situated on Aboyne Loch and the Gliding Club on the outskirts of the town.
Location can be as important as the property itself, and there are few areas more outstanding than the Aberdeenshire countryside. Aboyne is an active community with provision for both primary and secondary schooling, as well as a theatre and sports centre with a swimming pool.
At offers over £475,000, there will be few properties that can offer so much value, in such a magnificent setting.
