We are delighted to offer for sale this charming, two bedroom traditional style detached cottage with detached garage/workshop which has a current building warrant for conversion into self-contained annexe accommodation. Nestled within the centre of the popular village of Aboyne at the heart of Royal Deeside and maintained to the highest of standards, the cottage is of tasteful décor throughout and is ready to move into.
Entry to the property is via a partially glazed, frosted door which leads into the welcoming dining kitchen. A well proportioned room of modern design and slate effect flooring, the kitchen is fitted with an immaculate range of traditional style base, wall and display units with under unit lighting. A large cupboard with double doors provides ease of access to the boiler, while extensive granite effect roll top work surfaces incorporate a sink with drainer. The kitchen is also fitted with quality appliances, including an integrated Siemens dishwasher, Hotpoint Fridge/Freezer and a double oven with 4 ring ceramic hob and extractor fan above. Fitted with spotlighting and of pleasant décor, double windows provide an abundance of natural light.
From the dining kitchen, a 15 pane Georgian style door leads into the light and airy dining/family room. Of neutral décor and carpeting, this living area is perfectly proportioned to accommodate a dining table and chairs, while also being equally suitable as a family room, depending on the purchaser’s requirements. A large, deep silled window overlooks the front garden and allows for plenty of natural light. Within the dining/family room is a shallow shelved cupboard, which is accessible via a partially glazed door, while there is further storage space in the form of a deep L-shaped understair cupboard which is also fitted with a clothing rail.
A door from the dining/family room leads into the hall, which is fitted with a cream carpet and built in book shelving, with a carpeted staircase leading up to the first floor living accommodation. Within the hall, sliding glazed doors provide access to the garden room, which was created by the current owner. With windows providing three aspects over the front garden, the garden room is of simple, neutral décor, which complements the exposed beams and spotlighting. A partially glazed door provides access to the front garden, while the garden room is also fitted with an electric panel heater.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is the lounge, which enjoys views to the front and side of the property. With ample space available for freestanding furniture, the lounge is ideal for relaxing with the family. Of fresh, neutral décor and fitted with carpeting, to the centre of the lounge is a striking fireplace with a decorative tiled background, slate hearth and wooden mantel – ideal for creating a warm and inviting atmosphere during the colder weather. Within the lounge, there is a range of built in book shelves to the side of the fireplace.
Ascending the carpeted staircase, is a mezzanine landing, where two sets of stairs divide to provide access to the living accommodation on two separate landings, which are naturally lit by two velux windows.
On the first landing is Double Bedroom One. A deep silled window to the front of the property provides elevated views across the front garden, while the room itself is of neutral décor and fully carpeted, with ample space for freestanding items of bedroom furniture. Close to Double Bedroom One on the first landing is the Family Bathroom, which includes a coloured three piece suite with Mira sport thermostatic shower appliance over the bath. Fully tiled around the suite, the bathroom also features a deep silled picture window, laminate flooring, a glass corner display shelf and wall mounted mirror, while a ceiling hatch provides access to the loft space above. Double Bedroom Two is accessible from the second landing, and is a further well proportioned room of neutral décor with a garden facing deep silled window.
Outside, the property is situated within versatile and beautifully maintained grounds. A gated tarmac driveway provides parking facilities for at least two vehicles, while the entrance to the front garden has been attractively trelliced. A decorative stone chip pathway leads through the front garden, which is laid to lawn at either side, with well stocked borders boasting an array of mature trees and seasonal flowering plants and flowers. Laid with decorative stone chips around the front of the property, there are various spots which are ideal for “al fresco” dining and enjoying the sunshine. To the side of the property is an open timber, covered and paved storage area – ideal for gardening equipment, bicycles etc.
From the driveway there is also access to the single detached garage/workshop, which includes a lockable shed. The garage currently has a building warrant (Ref: BW/2009/3763) in place for the conversion of the garage into self contained annexe accommodation, with a kitchenette, shower room and bedroom on the ground floor, and a large lounge area on the first floor, which is accessible via a wooden staircase which has already been put in place.
Viewing is highly recommended in order to truly appreciate the delightful living accommodation and super location. Further benefits include oil central heating and double glazing. All carpets, curtains, blinds and light fittings are to be included within the sale. The kitchen appliances are to be included, apart from the Samsung washing machine. The bathroom fitments for the proposed shower room in the annexe accommodation may be available for purchase by separate negotiation.
