We are delighted to offer for sale this most impressive THREE BEDROOM DETACHED COTTAGE which enjoys a peaceful rural location off South Deeside Road. The charming property is set within a large plot of just under one acre of beautifully kept grounds which extend down to the banks of the River Dee commanding tremendous views of the surrounding area. Offering a wealth of accommodation, the considerably extended property offers a very rare opportunity to purchase a spacious home within private and idyllic surroundings. The ground floor accommodation has been considerably enhanced to provide an extensive sized lounge, dining area and entrance vestibule. The spacious kitchen fitted with a selection of base and wall storage units, master bedroom, family bathroom and well proportioned hallway, are also set within the ground floor and form part of the original cottage. The upper floor accommodation comprises a double bedroom with en suite shower room and an additional double bedroom. Externally to the west of the property there is a driveway laid in chipped granite providing parking for ample cars, a shed, log store and an area laid to lawn with a pond and landscaped borders. To the north of the property there is a paved patio area ideal for outdoor dining, with an adjoining field leading down to the banks of the River Dee which would be ideal for keeping a small horse or pony. The mature gardens and trees surrounding the property have been planted to give maximum privacy and shelter while retaining uninterrupted views. The property features fresh neutral decor throughout and retains many of the traditional features whilst benefiting from the modern comforts of oil fired central heating and wooden-framed double glazed windows with extra sound proofing. All floor coverings, curtains, light fitments and white goods are to be included in the sale. It is worth noting that there may be the opportunity for further development with the current owner having obtained planning permission for several schemes of extension though none were implemented and were allowed to lapse.
