Description

We now offer for sale THE GLEBE, formerly the old manse for the Parish Church, an imposing 7 BEDROOM 3 STOREY PERIOD DETACHED DWELLINGHOUSE set in the Kirktown area of St Fergus. Surrounded by mature trees with a long esweeping driveway and grounds surrounding, a quiet, country location is created within village life. With local schools and bus routes nearby St Fergus is a great location for commuting to Peterhead, Fraserburgh, the gas terminal or even Aberdeen and the Airport. This property is ideal for someone seeking a project or to re-locate away from the hustle and bustle of city living. There are still original features retained and once upgraded, this could be a spectacular home combining all the convenience of modern living with the grandeur, charm and elegance of the era in which it was built circa 1850. The rooms are exceptionally generous and well-proportioned with high ceilings and a very adaptable array of accommodation to suit individual needs.

On entering the property, the vestibule features original floor tiling. The reception hallway with stylish staircase to the upper floors creates a grand entrance. The lounge is a very generous room with dual aspect windows, both with original shutters which could be taken back to their former glory. The original feature cornicing and high skirting boards are also still intact. There is another public room which would be perfect as a dining room for formal entertaining or as a second sitting room. Again this room retains some of the original features. The spacious dining kitchen has a good range of base and wall units with breakfast bar. It also has an electric hob, double oven, integrated dishwasher, extractor fan and integrated fridge. There is a shower room and a rear hall gives access to outside as well as further rooms which would undoubtedly have been the staff quarters, cellars and stores in time gone by. These rooms need complete upgrading but provide a lot of space and possibilities. There is a utility room which has an old open fire, a sink and two windows. A rear hall gives access outside. Somewhat of a maze, but offering great possibilities, the rear accommodation could be upgraded to form part of the house or even opens up possibilities for granny flat type living for a family that wishes to stay with each other but retain a degree of privacy and independence. An inner hall gives access to the integral garage which may well have been original stabling. Beyond this, a further hall again gives access to the garden and there are three sizeable rooms, two with original flagstone floors and one with a wooden floor. Stairs lead to two attic rooms.

Back in the main house, the staircase leads to the mezzanine floor where there are two very sizeable double bedrooms which also have period features and one has windows to the side and rear. There is a toilet and stairs lead up to the separate bathroom. On to the first floor, there is the master bedroom which has large windows again with original cornicing and skirtings. There are another two very sizeable double bedrooms located on this floor, one of which has a walk in wardrobe/dressing room. Access to this room can also be gained from the hall, so this could be doubled as a study, nursery or possibly made into a first floor bathroom, subject to all necessary consents being obtained. The landing on the second floor is bright and airy with an array of skylight windows. This floor offers two further bedrooms and there is a box room for additional storage.

The flooring, carpets, curtains, blinds, light fittings and shades are all included as seen. There is gas central heating and single glazing throughout. There are mains services with drainage to a septic tank within the grounds.

Outside, there are generous garden grounds surrounding the property, mostly laid to lawn bordered by mature trees and shrubs with a sweeping drive leading up to the house. There is an outbuilding at the rear which is in a state of disrepair.

The Glebe is an impressive, substantial C listed building which does require extensive upgrading. However, it has the potential to be a fabulous family home, including the capability of granny flat accommodation, a bed and breakfast or possible investment opportunity, subject to all relevant consents and planning being obtained and it will be for any purchaser to satisfy themselves on any matters that would require building warrant, planning permission or consents given its listed building status. Viewing of this fine property is a must to appreciate this potential.
