It is situated within walking distance of the centre of Ellon and minutes from Tesco and the park and ride, yet offers the peace, seclusion and panoramic views of a country setting which offers the owners a family lifestyle which is desired by many but rarely available. Occupying approx. 1.2 acres of beautifully established gardens, additional land may be available to purchase separately.
