LOVELY COUNTRY HOUSE IN BEAUTIFUL GARDENS
This is a beautiful COUNTRY HOUSE situated in mature grounds of almost 1 acre and in a very fine location close to the coast, about 22 miles south of Aberdeen, 8 miles from Stonehaven and 3 miles from Inverbervie. Originally the manse for the adjacent Kinneff Old Church, it dates from the 17th Century, listed Category B, full of charm and character yet improved and modernised to make a very comfortable and spacious family home. It is set in delightful gardens, with mature trees and planting, and extensive lawns. The fine accommodation, on 2 floors, comprises generous living space with an elegant Lounge, formal Dining Room, lovely Dining Kitchen, Sun Lounge and Study and upstairs, 6 attractive Bedrooms, Bathroom and Shower Room, adjacent to the Master Bedroom.
Kinneff lies approximately 7 miles south of Stonehaven with the main village, on the main A92 coast road with a Primary School and Village Hall. A wider range of amenities are available in Inverbervie including Medical Centre, local shops and hotels, sports hall, bowling green and other community activities. Stonehaven is a vibrant community with a wide range of facilities for all ages, with excellent shops and restaurants. Lathallan School is 6 miles south and has an excellent reputation.
Kinneff Old Church is rich in historical connections. The Scottish Crown Jewels were smuggled out of Dunnottar Castle in 1651 by the Minister’s wife and hidden first in the Manse and then under the pulpit of the Church for 9 years, before they were returned to Edinburgh Castle for the restoration of King Charles II. The Old Church is now maintained by a local trust.
