The exclusive Daviot Estate, situated in the heart of rural Grampian, comprises a unique development of historic listed buildings, estate farmhouses, cottages and new build detached villas and has been commended by the Architectural Society of Scotland.

Created to evoke the charm of a rural idyll, set in a large plot, Craigshannoch House, with its name taken from the second peak of the Bennachie range, nestles within the spectacular mature grounds of Daviot Estate, enjoying wonderful southerly and westerly views of the dramatic hills beyond. The modernist structure has great character and charm, boasting a wonderful flood of light throughout the interior of this extra ordinary spacious family home. Artistic inspiration for the design of this elegant new build flowed from the fine detailing of the adjacent Art Deco Craigshannoch Hospice Pavillion. The sensitive renovation of the iconic circa 1930 pavillion to create the 3 Craigshannoch Mansions was painstakingly delivered by the developers of the newly built Craigshannoch House.

Planned to create a comfortable and versatile family seat, all rooms are exceptionally spacious and airy with high corniced ceilings. The commodious accommodation has been finished to exacting standards. The public and family rooms, with full height glazing to the patio screens and projecting bay windows featuring art deco style horizontal astragals take full advantage of the surrounding natural light and wonderful far reaching views.

Entering via the main entrance vestibule, the 2 storey hallway presents an impressive curved oak staircase leading to the upper galleried bedroom floor with oak curved balustrading around its balcony. The door sets throughout are of solid oak with glazed panels. The kitchen and bathrooms have been supplied by Laings of Inverurie. In the kitchen wing of the family living area there are rigid German built units with easy close drawers and cabinets, crushed stone and hammer finished granite countertops, and fitted out with top quality appliances including a range cooker with extractor hood, a wine fridge and dishwasher. There are two sinks with one installed in the stunning central breakfast bar island. Floors are timber hung, insulation fulfills today's rigorous standards, there are Villeroy & Boch tiles, Duravit sanitary ware, walk-in Matki showers, stylish bathroom furniture and there are lights in all the wardrobes. Particularly worthy of mention is the large, insulated loft which offers significant storage, as well as the double garage with remote control door.
