Situated on the far side of the bridge to Ythanbank close to the River Ythan within the heart of Aberdeenshire's stunning rolling countryside, lies the development site at mill of Auchedly. The community of Ythanbank has expanded in recent years and is a popular residential village.

The site is 4 miles downriver from the village of Methlick which has excellent facilities including a thriving primary school and nursery, village hall, shop with post office, vets, doctors' surgery, garage and petrol station. Ellon, 5 miles away, is a busy commuter town with supermarkets, banks, leisure facilities, library and Council offices.

Mill of Auchedly lies on the periphery of Haddo Estate. Until recently it was a small working farm but the buildings were no longer suitable for modern agriculture.

The site lends itself to re-development and the owner will demolish the old buildings prior to the commencement of the development.

Planning consent has been obtained for the erection of 3 detached dwellings and the re-development and extension of the traditional farmhouse. Upon completion, Mill of Auchedly will form a stunning exclusive development of 4 family homes set in beautiful surroundings in a much sought after area of Aberdeenshire. The homes have been individually designed by award winning architects, Annie Kenyon Architects, who have planned each home to maximise the views and privacy of each site. The site is available as a whole or in the following plots.
