Enjoying an extremely secluded location and a fabulous sunny aspect with panoramic views to the rear, we are delighted to offer a rare opportunity to purchase an imposing four public/five bedroomed detached dwelling with double garage, large gardens and paddock within the busy town of Insch.

The extremely spacious accommodation in this lovely home includes the entrance vestibule and hallway, which gives access to the tranquil lounge and the fabulous sun lounge off which fills all the rooms with natural light and looks to fabulous open views.

The second floor contains two attic style double bedrooms and a walk-in storage cupboard. Outside there is plentiful parking on the driveway which leads to the detached double garage with a coal cellar and potting shed attached at the rear.
