Forming part of an exclusive steading development, within an easy commute of the A90 and AWPR for easy access to the North or South, this truly impressive four bedroomed family home has been converted and finished to an exceptionally high standard by the current owners.

A welcoming reception hall with exposed granite wall and bespoke oak staircase leads to the charming lounge with stunning views towards the garden and mature woodland beyond. A concealed entrance leads from the lounge to the home office. The superb dining kitchen, with bespoke Welsh oak and granite base units and four oven oil fired AGA, enjoys an open plan layout with the generous dining area/sitting room with vaulted ceiling and imposing open fireplace.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is further enhanced by an en suite bathroom with antique bath and separate shower. There is a further double bedroom and two spacious single bedrooms. The well appointed family bathroom, also with antique bath and separate shower, completes the accommodation. The property has a top of the range ground source heat system as well as a separate continuous air and heat exchange ventilation system providing fresh, filtered air through the house.

Set within extensive garden grounds with a lovely mature woodland backdrop, the gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a large ornamental pond which attracts much local wildlife and a large garden shed supplied with water and electricity.
