Description

Rarely does the opportunity arise to acquire a unique and individual home as this SELF CONTAINED THREE BEDROOM UPPER FLAT tucked away in the picturesque historic former fishing village of ‘Fittie’. The property has been upgraded by the present owners to provide a spacious family home which cleverly balances the original period features (dating back to the early 19th century) and character with contemporary styling. The property is in good decorative order with gas fired central heating. The accommodation, over 3 floors, comprises: Entrance Vestibule on the Ground Floor. The First Floor features a bright and spacious Dining Kitchen fitted with a range of quality fixtures and appliances including a large central dining table, well proportioned Lounge with feature wood burning stove and central Bathroom. Both the Dining Kitchen and Lounge stretch the full depth of the house with front and rear facing windows. The rear facing windows provide stunning views over the Harbour and Beach front and the North Sea beyond. There are 2 good sized Double Bedrooms and a Single Bedroom on the Second floor. On the top floor there is a large attic area currently split into 2 multi purpose rooms each with front and rear facing velux windows. All room sizes are generous. With its wealth of appeal, enviable location and impressive upgrading, this attractive home is in “ready to move into” condition and early viewing is genuinely recommended to appreciate the many features this charming property offers. All fitted floor coverings, curtains and most kitchen appliances (where listed) are included in the sale.

Footdee, affectionately known as ‘Fittie’, is a former fishing village at the east end of the Harbour and the southern end of Aberdeen Beach. It was laid out by John Smith as 2 squares of regular cottage houses at the beginning of the 19th century and was originally a bustling community in its own right. In the late 1880’s the houses were to their tenants and the area has prospered over the years and is now a unique environment and a ‘village’ within the City. Fantastic coastal walks are on the door step as are Aberdeen Beach, the Boulevard Retail Park and the entertainment and restaurant facilities at the Queens Links Leisure Centre. The City Centre is some 5 minute drive from the property with its wealth of amenities and regular public transport to and from other areas of the City.
