Description

We are delighted to offer FOR SALE this unique opportunity to acquire a wonderfully traditional property in the prestigious and unspoilt conservation village, in the heart of Deeside of Kincardine O'Neil. This 'B' Listed former granite church, with single storey extension to the side and set in a spacious plot with ample parking and outdoor space boasts character, traditional features and could be put to a multitude of uses. The single storey extension benefits from planning consent and Listed Building consent for change of use.

The property is accessed directly from the A93 road making this a perfectly accessible location for a range of potential uses. Kincardine O' Neil, just 25 miles west of Aberdeen on the banks of the River Dee is nestled between the larger settlements of Banchory and Aboyne. This village is heralded as the oldest village on Deeside with a history dating back before Christian times. This historical busy location, with its volume of passing traffic on middle age trackways led to the development of nearby settlements and early castles such as Aboyne Castle.

In the 19th century, the Deeside Railway was built. However it bypassed the Kincardine O'Neil and this fact impeded its expansion in contrast to other neighbouring settlements. The architecture of the main street reflects that of the late 18th and early 19th century, not having been modified significantly over the years and this led to Kincardine O'Neil being declared a conservation area in 1978.

The village benefits from a number of small independent retailers and a primary school. A wide range of amenities can be found at nearby Aboyne and Banchory. Royal Deeside is a picturesque, mountainous part of the north east, and a firm favourite with the Royal Family. The area captivated Queen Victoria as did nearby Balmoral Castle with its characteristic Scottish blend of mountains, crags, productive rivers and moors and forests. The royal air is still prevalent in the picturesque villages of Deeside, such as Ballater and Braemar, which are unsurprisingly thronged with tourists in season. Deeside offers excellent opportunities for outdoor activities such as walking, biking and wildlife watching, and many accommodation options.

Main Church Access is taken to the main church by way of a front door and entrance vestibule with a staircase to a galleried original seating area for the congregation. Beautifully vaulted ceiling with roof beams and stained glass windows. The original church pews remain in situ.

Former Church Hall / Winterfell This single storey extension to the main church comprises an entrance vestibule with Cloakroom off and a separate Shower Room. The main area boasts a wood burning stove. There is an Office Area and a Kitchen with sink and work surfaces. A Rayburn stove is located her but is currently disconnected.

Construction The property was constructed in the 1860's with the Hall being added in the 1950's. Planning approval has in the past been granted for part residential accommodation however any purchaser is advised to make their own enquiries of the local Planning Department.

Exterior Externally the property is set in private grounds with driveway and ample parking. The boundaries are fenced and the area is landscaped with mature trees and shrubs.

Services The property is served by mains electricity, drainage and water supplies.
