Parkside Farmhouse is an impressive FOUR/FIVE BEDROOM DETACHED FARMHOUSE set within extensive gardens and taking advantage of uninterrupted south-facing views. The original farmhouse was built in the 1850's and sympathetically renovated in the 1990's by the current owners. If offers an enviable level of family accommodation which is both generous and well laid out with bright, airy and versatile rooms, incorporating modern comforts of insulation, oil-fired central heating and bespoke wooden double glazed windows yet while still preserving the original character of the dwelling. Its situation is unusual, overlooking as it does Barra Hill and Oldmeldrum to the south.
Entering from the lower ground floor, there is a spacious and bright sun lounge, finished with tiled flooring, and which has attractive views into the south-facing gardens – a very pleasant place to enjoy an afternoon or evening sunset, irrespective of season. Also on the lower ground floor – featuring latched doorways – there is a generously proportioned family room/bedroom which has as its focal point an original inglenook fireplace. The master bedroom enjoys a pleasant aspect over the gardens and benefits from a walk-in wardrobe and luxury en suite shower room. Completing the accommodation on the lower ground floor is a practical and surprisingly extensive utility/laundry/drying room as well as a small toilet.
A carpeted staircase leads to the first/middle floor where a spacious and welcoming entrance hallway, tastefully decorated and carpeted in neutral tones, gives access to all further accommodation. The main lounge enjoys superb south-facing views over the garden to open countryside beyond, together with further aspects to the east side and rear of the property, and features a contemporary polished slate and stone open fireplace. Also enjoying enticing views to the south – including a mature monkey puzzle tree as the focal point – the large dining room has been finished with natural wood flooring and is fitted with the original polished slate and tiled fireplace.
