We have pleasure in offering for sale this simply stunning five bedroom detached dwellinghouse which stands in approximately two acres of ground. Situated in an enviable rural location between the Royal Deeside villages of Banchory and Aboyne and within easy commuting distance of Aberdeen City, the property offers excellent family accommodation and enjoys superb views. Truly a lifestyle home for those who enjoy country pursuits and peaceful surroundings.

The house is accessed via a private tree lined track which opens out into an area suitable for parking several cars. In addition a wooden single garage with adjoining double carport provides all weather parking and protection from the elements.

The immediate garden grounds are mainly laid to lawn and planted with several mature shrubs and trees, while a small garden pond is a haven for wildlife. The remainder of the land is partly grass and partly natural but could be utilised for a number of purposes, perhaps even the erection of a further dwellinghouse subject to all local authority consents being obtained.

The property has been continuously upgraded by the current owners throughout their occupancy. They have paid great attention to detail and have finished this lovely home to the highest of standards whilst still retaining many of the original period features. There is an abundance of versatile family living space - a home perfect for entertaining guests.

The kitchen/diner/family room is a stylish and functional multi-purpose room, fitted with bespoke custom built wall and base units and benefiting from a central island “work station”. The neutral coloured units are complimented by solid oak work surfaces and low maintenance slate floor tiling. This exceptionally spacious, light filled room, where one can enjoy the superb views is truly the “hub” of family life. Two sets of French doors open into the outside patio area, ideal for barbeques and ‘al-fresco’ dining.

A large utility room is accessed from the kitchen and provides ample room for white goods, hanging space for outdoor clothing and a large walk in larder cupboard.

The sitting room is a cosy, east facing room decorated in coffee and cream shades with a particularly attractive granite and slate hearth on which stands a multi fuel stove. The delightful front facing formal dining room is enhanced by its original coving and cornice detail and the original slate fireplace is a particular feature of this room.

Bedroom Five is currently used as a guest bedroom and also benefits from the attractive original features and fireplace and is decorated in relaxing tones.

The large and tastefully decorated bathroom has a white four piece suite with roll top bath and separate shower cubicle.

Ascending the carpeted staircase the upper floor gives access to the remaining four bedrooms and bathroom with three piece white suite and over bath shower. All bedrooms are of good proportions with ample space for free standing furniture and generous storage throughout. Of particular note is the master bedroom with its large built in wardrobes and en-suite shower room. The “wow factor” is the arch shaped gable window giving views over the local countryside.

Further benefits include solid wood flooring, original stripped pine doors downstairs, “ready to move into” condition, tasteful décor, excellent storage space and oil fired central heating.

Station Masters Cottage lies just under five miles east of Aboyne, a short drive to the thriving village of Lumphanan and is easily commutable to Banchory, Westhill, Kingswells and Aberdeen city. The village of Lumphanan has a range of local shops, a post office, golf course, a local pub and primary school, whilst there is also a regular bus service to and from Aberdeen. In Aboyne there is a wider selection of shops, restaurants and recreational facilities, with secondary education being available at Aboyne Academy. The popular town of Banchory is also a short drive away, providing access to a larger array of facilities. The beautiful surrounding countryside is abundant with leisure facilities including golf, fishing and horse riding, while the Glen Tanar Country Park provides excellent walks.
