Set in the heart of the village of Portsoy, this stunning property is situated centrally, just a few minutes walk from the historic harbour and Wally Green playing field, the town centre and all its amenities. Portsoy is a wonderfully welcoming village, hosting the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival each summer, bringing the local area together to celebrate the maritime history, packed with boats, music, crafts, food and drink to celebrate the region’s cultural heritage.

This stunning property is a 1 ½ storey detached family home, with beautifully landscaped gardens front and rear giving privacy and tranquillity. The property was built around the 1850’s and is ideally suited to families, with four double bedrooms, two living areas, a kitchen and separate dining room. It also has a double garage, with discreet solar panels attached to the roof.

Entering via a wooden front door with a lovely stained glass panel, and ornate owl knocker, in to the stunning hallway. The hallway is drenched in sunlight, and has a wide sweeping staircase, and gives access to the lounge/drawing room, bedrooms one and two, snug, kitchen, dining room and of course, the upstairs. The property retains many of the original features throughout, with coving, ceiling rose, and traditional deep skirtings and facings.

Facing the front of the property, the drawing room/lounge is a stunning room filled with beautiful traditional features including the lovely wood panels around the window frames, ornate tiled fireplace and beautiful wooden flooring. Off to the left of the hallway, is bedroom one. This room also faces the front of the property, and is a generous double size with storage cupboard. Bedroom two overlooks the rear of the property, and is decorated in lovely natural tones, with a luxury cream carpet. The snug is a wonderfully cozy, relaxed room to the rear of the property with a window facing north towards the harbour. It has a modern electric fire fitted, with marble hearth and storage cupboard. A small step takes you down into the family kitchen, the heart of the home. The dining kitchen is fitted with quality base and wall units, and has plenty of worktop space and a breakfast bar able to accommodate a large family. The Bosch oven and grill, separate Bosch hob, cooker hood and fridge are all integrated and will be included in the sale. The kitchen has lovely dual aspect windows filling the room with natural light, and plenty of display shelving for recipe books and memorabilia. A hatch in the ceiling gives access to the floored attic, this is a large space with lots of storage and has potential for use as a study, accessed by a ramsey ladder. A dining room is set off the kitchen, and has ample space for a large dining set and additional furniture. It boasts an enormous storage cupboard, which currently houses a spare fridge freezer.

At the back of the house, is a rear porch and shower room. This is ideally located for families returning from the sandy beach or dogs with muddy paws, and adds the benefit of offering a downstairs facility to save guests going upstairs.

Upstairs, there are two further bedrooms and the family bathroom. Bedroom three is currently used as a craft room, filled with light from the south facing dormer window and easily able to accommodate king size furniture. Bedroom four is currently used as the master bedroom, and is a wonderfully clean and fresh room, with a stunning feature wall behind the bed. Decorated simply in white, and again with a south facing dormer window this room would be a joy to wake up to in the morning. It has ample fitted wardrobes, and is a good size with plenty space for additional furniture. The family bathroom is fitted with a white 3 piece suite, with Triton power shower over the bath, and a linoleum tiled floor.

Outside is what sets this property above others, its sprawling south facing front garden is filled with mature shrubs and fruit trees, one of which was rumoured to be planted when the house was built in the 1850’s and to this day, still produces a good stock of apples. It is laid with grass, and has a lovely patio area, and herb circle. A gated archway with climbing rose takes you through to the rear patio garden. This would be a stunning place to enjoy outside dining and refreshments, with a large garden shed and external cupboard giving extra storage for the all important gardening and sports equipment family life can bring, and a tall gate gives access to the street.

There is also a double garage with electric opening door, making parking easy and accessible. It has the added benefit of being fitted with discreet solar panels to the roof.

Viewing is highly recommended for this property. It is in immaculate walk in condition and would be a stunning home.
