SELF CONTAINED LOWER FLAT IN BLOCK OF FOUR
In the 1930s, a large area of Torry was laid out as a “Garden City” to relieve overcrowding in Aberdeen itself. The property is a part of this area. The lower flat in a famous Aberdeen “block of four” has, at the rear, an outlook over an open grassed area and small play areas. The accommodation which has gas central heating and double glazing comprises hall, lounge, with kitchen off, “divided” bedroom and bathroom. The exclusively owned area at the front and side of the flat is laid with gravel chips and at the rear, in the exclusive garden area there is a raised decked area and metal garden shed. There is a shared drying green. The price includes all appliances, light fittings and curtains.

HOW TO GET THERE One of a number of ways to reach Torry is to travel west on Union Street, Holburn Street and Great Southern Road crossing the River Dee at King George VI Bridge. Take the first exit into West Tullos Road and the first exit at the next roundabout into Abbotswell Road. At the junction with Wellington Road regulated by traffic lights turn left and second right into Balnagask Road. Continue along Balnagask Road and turn left into Battock Place and follow Tullos Circle around part of Torry Academy into Mansefield Place. Number 54 is on the left hand side.
GENERAL Torry was originally a Royal Burgh in its own account until 1891 when, on the construction of Victoria Bridge, it was incorporated into the City of Aberdeen. Torry was long known for its connection with the City’s former fishing industry but now is closely connected with North Sea Oil which to the disappointment of many has swept away large parts of the original community. The houses in Torry are made up of typical Aberdeen tenements, larger granite built houses and Aberdeen’s “Garden City” which was built to provide housing for families moved out of their homes in Aberdeen itself. Mansefield Place is part of the “Garden City”. Being on the south side of the City, there is easy access to the Industrial Estates at Tullos and Altens and by way of the A90 to the every expanding Portlethen. Torry has its own golf course at Balnagask, the iconic Girdleness Lighthouse and Torry Battery, a favourite haunt of Sunday afternoon drivers who park and enjoy the panoramic view over the City, the harbour and the beach, and look out for dolphins.
