Noteworthy features also include designer style radiators, wired speakers throughout, Aga and wood burning stove and alarm system. A fabulous south facing sun lounge has been built to maximise the views over the landscaped gardens and sea.

LOCATION: Pettens Farmhouse is located north of Balmedie and next to Trumps International Golf Links. Nearby Balmedie is a popular coastal village approximately nine miles north of Aberdeen with links to the city along the A90 dual carriageway. The A90 is presently being upgraded to become the Western Peripheral Road, which will provide a journey time of just ten minutes to the airport and only twenty to the south of the city. The new road, to be completed in 2018, will be located further away from the house than presently; the existing A90 becoming a quiet access to local properties only.
There is easy access to the business and industrial estates at Bridge of Don, Dyce, the satellite towns of Ellon and Peterhead and the International Airport. There are good local amenities including nursery, primary school, leisure centre, shops, Post Office, local hotel and an 18 hole golf course. It is well known for its country park and its miles of unspoilt sandy beaches and sand dunes.
DIRECTIONS: Travelling north from the city proceed along the A90, Aberdeen/Ellon road, after passing the Cock and Bull Inn on the left hand side turn second right at the signpost for Pettens, and Pettens Farmhouse is located along this track.
