We offer for sale Donbank which is a landmark building on Donside, standing on the north side of the Bridge of Alford with an open outlook over the River Don and countryside beyond. Also within the site is the original Bridge of Alford Store, both of these buildings are Category C listed. Donbank is still currently being occupied as a home, has many beautiful traditional characteristic features but would benefit from a degree of upgrading. Attached to this is the old Bridge of Alford Store which was damaged by fire in 1970. This was a single storey building with shop on the ground floor and living accommodation above. To the rear is Bridgeview which was the former Post Office where there are two rooms and flatted property above, both requiring extensive upgrading.

Donbank has a small garden to front with the garden to the rear enclosed and within this area is the rear of the former Alford Store and Bridgeview. It enjoys a pleasing, open, sunny aspect, it is exceptionally well stocked and features a large shed and greenhouse.
