We are delighted to offer for sale this unique, two/three bedroom “Category B” listed ground floor apartment. Situated within a striking granite built building in the popular Rosemount area of Aberdeen City, the apartment lies within easy walking distance of local amenities, including both the Westburn and Victoria Parks and the hospital complex at Foresterhill. Exuding period charm throughout, this inviting home offers spacious and versatile living accommodation which perfectly blends modern with traditional features such as high ceilings, deep skirtings, decorative cornicing, mosaic tiled flooring and panelled doors. Boasting a shared, fully enclosed rear garden with decked platform, this property would be an ideal purchase for a young family, professional couple, or those looking to downsize. Early viewing is highly recommended.
A traditional hardwood door with stained glass window surround leads into the shared Entrance Hall, which is of neutral décor and features the original mosaic tiled flooring. With a fitted half height cupboard with deep sill housing the electricity consumer unit, a glazed door with frosted window panels and over head lighting provides access to the warm and welcoming Reception Hall. Of pleasant, light décor and featuring a mosaic tiled floor, the Reception Hall includes dado railings and deep skirtings, which are accentuated by the high ceiling. Towards the end of the Reception Hall, an open doorway leads into the Inner Hall, which is again of neutral decoration to complement the original hardwood flooring. With a fully glazed door with frosted panel allowing access to the rear garden, an understair cupboard is fitting with shelving, while a further storage cupboard includes a window and is fitted with a range of shelving and coat hooks – ideal for storing outdoor clothing, footwear and other household items.
A panelled door from the Inner Hall leads into the Dining Room, which is truly the “heart” of this busy family household. Fitted with tiled flooring and of fresh, neutral décor, a deep silled window provides views across the rear garden while also providing an abundance of natural light. With ample space available for large items of freestanding furniture and a dining table and chairs, the central focal point within the Dining Room is the “Raeburn” cooking range (not currently operational) situated within a traditional alcove with high wooden mantel.
From the Dining Room there is access to the Dining Kitchen, which lies on a gentle split level. Of neutral décor and fitted with tiled flooring, double Velux skylights and a frosted door to the rear garden ensure that the Dining Kitchen is a light and airy living space. Fitted with a bespoke range of white base and wall units with chrome handles, “pantry style” pull out units are included. The granite effect roll top work surfaces incorporate a stainless steel sink with mixer tap and a 5 ring gas hob with stainless steel splashback. Within the Kitchen there are a range of integrated appliances, including a “Bosch” dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a “Bosch” washing machine and tumble drier, while the freestanding “Bush” freezer will also remain. A sociable room, the Dining Kitchen also includes a vertical white radiator.
Overlooking the front garden and accessible from the Dining Room via a panelled door is the generously proportioned Lounge. A striking room with a high decorative ceiling, the Lounge is fitted with original wooden flooring and of neutral décor, while also featuring a number of period attributes, including deep solid wood skirtings, decorative cornicing and a large bay window with attractive full length solid wood panelling surround. Twin arched alcoves are situated to either side of the central fireplace, which features a wooden mantel with granite insert and hearth – perfect for creating a warm and inviting ambience.
A panelled door from the Dining Room allows access to the Study, which lies on a split level. Laid with carpeting and of neutral décor, the Study is pine panelled to dado rail height, with a deep silled window providing natural light. Currently utilised as a Music Room, the Study could also be used as a third single bedroom if so required.
From the Reception Hall a panelled door allows access to the impressive Master Bedroom, which is a large room with the lovely features of a high decorative ceiling, decorative cornicing and deep solid wood skirtings. Of neutral décor and extensive wooden flooring, there is plenty of space available for large items of freestanding bedroom furniture. The Master Bedroom also receives lots of natural light from the property frontage via a striking bay window with full length solid wood panelling surround.
Overlooking the rear garden via a deep silled window, Double Bedroom Two is a spacious and bright room of neutral decoration to complement the wood flooring. Including deep cornicing, skirtings and modern wall sconces, two traditional shallow cupboards with panelled doors provide useful fitted storage space.
Completing the living accommodation is the well appointed Shower Room. Of neutral décor and fitted with tiled flooring, the Shower Room is a light and bright room with a frosted deep silled window overlooking the side of the property. Featuring a white two piece suite consisting of a WC and wash hand basin, the curved corner shower enclosure houses a “Mira Sport” electric shower appliance. Tiled around the shower enclosure and wash hand basin, the Shower Room incudes a heated towel rail, central light fitment and a wall mounted storage cupboard.
Outside, a wrought iron gate with low lying granite wall allows access to the front garden, which is exclusive to the ground floor apartment. Laid with decorative stone chips and interspersed with mature shrubs and plants, the front garden promotes easy maintenance. To the rear there is an extensive, fully enclosed rear garden which is bounded by granite walls. The ground floor apartment enjoys the advantage of exclusive garden areas but such is the relationship between the two apartments is that they currently share responsibility for the upkeep of the entire rear garden, which is mostly laid to lawn while being interspersed with mature shrubs and trees. A large decked platform is the ideal location for displaying potted plants and to enjoy “al fresco” dining. A gate to the end of the garden allows access to the rear lane, while a granite built outhouse located just outside the Dining Kitchen is exclusive to the ground floor apartment and provides useful outdoor storage, as well as housing the “Worcester” central heating boiler. On street parking is widely available with resident’s parking permits being available from Aberdeen City Council. (Zone Z)
