A unique opportunity has arisen to purchase this substantial FOUR BEDROOM PERIOD GRANITE DETACHED RESIDENCE which enjoys a prime location within a sought after area in Aberdeen’s West End. It offers particularly generous and versatile accommodation spanning three floors. Built around 1900 and since extended to include a side extension at lower level which might lend itself for use as a “Granny” flat, with its own access and wash/shower room, as well as a separate rear extension including porch, a utility room, wc, potting shed/garden room, the property although in need of refurbishment offers huge potential and could readily be transformed into a magnificent family home.
The name of the house has an interesting historical perspective connected to James the 4th. At one stage the property was registered to a “Lady” and it has latterly been in the ownership of the same family since 1936 evidencing its quality and long lasting appeal.
Many traditional features are evident as soon as you enter the property including intricate plasterwork and ceiling cornicing, high skirtings and original solid wooden doors. Also worthy of a note is a sweeping staircase featuring wrought iron spindles and a stained glass window at half level, and a large upper landing. At ground floor level three large public rooms offer enviable living accommodation including a front facing Sitting Room of period design with a bay window and marble feature fireplace, a spacious Dining Room on the opposite side of the main hallway and there is an extremely generously sized Lounge within the self-contained extension to the west of the property which can be accessed from the Sitting Room which has its own entrance and which provides peaceful pleasant aspects over the sheltered gardens. There is also a large Dining Kitchen with a Utility Room off which provides access to versatile store areas including a Garden Room which opens out on to the grounds; The ground floor Double Bedroom could also be used as a large office or a more snug Living Room. On the first floor a large galleried landing leads to three Double Bedrooms, as well as a Dressing Room and Family Bathroom. At second floor level an attic floor with three large rooms provides scope for further development. The property is served by gas central heating and all carpets, floor coverings and curtains are included.
