We are delighted to bring to the market this superb four bedroom detached family bungalow, built in 1992 and completed to the highest specification. ‘Tillyburnie’ (‘in the soil by the burn’) is situated in a lovely central location within the friendly hamlet of Finzean just 7 miles to the west of Banchory and enjoying private, immaculately maintained grounds which extend to approximately 1/3 acre.

Entry to the house is via the entrance vestibule which features Kardean flooring, a south facing window and hardwood external door. The vestibule opens into the central hallway and corridors which together provide access to all living accommodation. Cupboard housing heating boiler and loft access hatch.

To the front of Tillyburnie is the south-facing lounge which has a lovely bay window and a further secondary window, both of which over look the front garden and to the hills beyond. The lounge is filled with natural light and has, as its focal point, a traditional coal fire mounted in a beautiful granite fireplace supplied by Robertsons Granite. Note: the wall-mounted television will be included in the price.

Directly behind the lounge and with a westerly aspect is double bedroom 1. Beautifully decorated in shades of aquamarine and white, this room has fitted wardrobes which provide good hanging and storage space. Note: curtains, blinds and pole will be removed. Wall-mounted television to be included. Adjoining this double room is the en-suite shower room, recently completely refurbished by Laings of Inverurie, again to the highest specification and featuring a double walk-in shower, twin wash hand basins, excellent storage space and beautiful tiling.

Again, with a westerly aspect and lying next to bedroom 1 is the second double bedroom which also has its own en-suite shower room. The wardrobes in this bedroom may be available for purchase by separate negotiation. Note: the central light fitting in this bedroom will be removed. The en-suite comprises a shower cubicle with Mira power shower, wash hand basin and WC.

At the end of the corridor lies the master bedroom which has an easterly aspect over the side garden and patio areas. This room is very tastefully decorated, bright and enjoys the morning sun. Fitted with an extensive range of wardrobes, the master bedroom has superb hanging and storage space. Located off the master bedroom is the en-suite shower room which is fitted with a shower unit, WC, wash hand basin and window.

Immediately in front of the master bedroom is bedroom 4 which is currently fitted out as a nursery and also enjoys an easterly aspect. Certain furniture may be available by separate negotiation.

Accessed from the central reception hall via an archway is the dining room which is ideally set up for entertaining both inside and out. A glazed door leads to the rear patios and garden grounds whilst a further glazed panel door opens directly into the superb dining kitchen. Note: the wall-mounted display cabinet will remain.

One of the main ‘wow’ factors at Tillyburnie is the superb dining kitchen/family room and office area. Again fitted by Laings of Inverurie the kitchen is quite superb and has a large picture window which overlooks the rear ground. The German-Hacker designed kitchen units are plentiful and include a multitude of pull-out cupboards, wine racks, larders, spice racks, cutlery, pans and utility drawers and almost every possible integrated appliance required! The central island which comprises the cooking area, Elica illuminated feature hood and the breakfast bar and co-ordinating chairs form the focal point of the family space. The kitchen and dining areas are fitted with Karndean flooring whilst there is a Corian-sealed integrated sink set in coordinated work tops. All units are ‘soft closing’.

On open plan with the kitchen/family dining area is the family room/office area. Fitted with carpeting and with a south facing aspect, this room has been fitted with superb office units built by local cabinet maker Tom Ironside which feature concealed printer storage, filing cabinets etc.

Adjoining the dining kitchen is the large utility room, again fitted out by Laings of Inverurie. The utility/laundry room features excellent storage space as well as being plumbed for an automatic washing machine, Belfast sink and doors leading to both the garage and to the outside garden. There is a fitted pulley, which will remain, as well as Karndean flooring. Adjoining the utility/laundry room is a shower room comprising a WC, wash hand basin and shower unit. This is an ideal cloakroom area for access from both the garage and the garden.

Accessed internally from the utility/laundry room is the large double garage with twin doors and presently houses the coal bunker and several work benches and storage cupboards (some of which will be removed). The garage has both power and light (there is also a tap inside the garage door and also at the back door). The front driveway provides further parking for several vehicles.

Outside the gardens are quite outstanding. There is a large shed for storage and a separate potting area. There are numerous patios and barbeque areas, a drying area with rotary clothes dryer, an area housing the oil tank, various pergolas, raised vegetable and herb beds, fruit bushes, trees, hosta beds – the list is endless! There is a large dog run and kennel at the back of the house where the rear garden is completely enclosed and very private and sheltered.

To the front of the house again the grounds are beautifully manicured, have lovely feature lighting and water features and are laid out with an extensive area of lawn. Excellent external lighting around the entire house. Note: the water feature will remain although most of the garden furniture and ornaments will be removed.

Viewing is highly recommended in order to truly appreciate this beautiful home, which is exceptionally well maintained and enjoys many superb features such as hardwood doors, windows and finishings throughout. Further benefits include oil-fired central heating and double glazing. All carpets and floor coverings, certain curtains, blinds and light fittings will be included within the sale. All integrated kitchen appliances are to be included in the price.

The property is served by mains water and electricity and has a private drainage system which is located discreetly in the corner of the front garden.

Tillyburnie is located at the heart of Finzean, an attractive village located within easy commuting distance of Aberdeen and just 7 miles from both Banchory and Aboyne. The property is near the Finzean Village Hall which provides various leisure and business activities including badminton, dancing, singing, playgroups, musical and drama events, private functions and even weddings. The village has a great community spirit and has an excellent farm shop which provides all the necessities for everyday life. The “local” Feuchside Inn has newly reopened under new management and serves excellent meals. There is a tearoom, church, village hall, a playgroup and a local nursery at Ballogie. There is a primary school within the village of Finzean and secondary education available at either Banchory or Aboyne academies.
