Located on the outskirts of the thriving village of Tarves, “The Byre” enjoys exceptional views over the surrounding countryside towards the East Coast. Providing versatile and generously proportioned family living accommodation with high ceilings, the property receives lots of natural light from an array of thoughtfully positioned deep silled and Velux windows. Featuring neutral décor throughout, this lovely country home successfully combines traditional features with modern living. Ready to move into with a minimum of fuss, “The Byre” will no doubt appeal to those families looking to escape to the country, yet remain with commuting distance of local amenities, as well as Ellon, Bridge of Don and Aberdeen City. Early viewing is highly recommended.

Entry to the property is via a partially glazed door with fully glazed side panels which leads into the bright and airy Entrance Vestibule. Within the Vestibule, a fitted cupboard provides both shelf and hanging space, while also housing the electricity circuit breaker, alarm panel and underfloor heating valves. From the Entrance Vestibule a partially glazed door with window panels to either side leads into the warm and welcoming Reception Hall, which is of impressive proportions. Allowing plenty of room for freestanding display furniture, three Velux windows provide lots of natural light while also enhancing the height of the Hall ceiling.

Within the Reception Hall there is access to a well appointed WC Cloakroom. Of neutral décor and fitted with slate effect ceramic floor tiling, , the WC includes a white two piece suite with splashback tiling above the wash hand basin, in addition to a circular mirror.

From the Reception Hall a partially glazed door leads into the Inner Hall, from where the East Wing accommodation is accessible. Along the Inner Hall, a door leads into the Boot Room, which also houses the underfloor heating valves and a range of coat hooks, making this the ideal location for storing outdoor clothing and footwear. A walk in Pantry is of excellent dimensions, and fitted with a range of deep fitted shelving.

From the Inner Hall a set of double partially glazed doors with adjacent window panels provides access to the spacious Dining Kitchen. Of neutral décor and fitted with tiled flooring and ceiling spotlights, a deep silled tiled window allows for views over the garden. Providing plenty of space for a dining table and chairs, the Kitchen is fitted with a wide range of solid wood fronted base and wall units with under unit lighting. Extensive granite roll top work surfaces with mosaic tiled splashback incorporate a 1.5 stainless steel sink with drainer and a 4 ring “Hotpoint” induction hob with “Hotpoint” extractor fan above. A large central island provides yet more storage facilities and includes a useful circular stainless steel sink, ideal for food preparation. Within the Dining Kitchen there is a range of integrated “Hotpoint” appliances, including a dishwasher, oven/grill and fridge/freezer.

The Lounge lies on a split level to the Inner Hall. Of excellent proportions, the Lounge is the ideal room both for relaxation and family gatherings. Of neutral décor and fitted with engineered oak flooring, there is ample space within the Lounge for a range of freestanding soft furnishings. The central focal point within the Lounge is the impressive fireplace with brick inset and wooden mantel which houses a multi fuel burning stove – ideal for creating a warm and inviting ambience during the colder weather. A set of French doors with adjacent window panels leads out from the Lounge to a raised patio beyond, which is the ideal setting for “al fresco” dining while taking in the views. A carpeted staircase from the Lounge leads up to the spacious Family Room, which enjoys elevated far reaching views across the neighbouring countryside from three Velux windows. Currently utilised as a Games Room, this versatile living space would be equally suitable as a home office, study or studio space if so desired.

Returning to the Lounge, an impressive twin set of partially glazed bi-fold doors provide access to the Dining Room, the proportions of which lend itself well to formal dining and entertainment. Within the Dining Room four deep silled windows allow for far reaching views over the garden grounds to the rolling countryside beyond.

Situated just beyond Tolquhon Castle, a private track provides access to the tarmac driveway which leads into the rear of “The Byre” and allows access to the Double Garage. To the front of the property there is a large area which is laid to lawn, while a large mature hedge allows for privacy. Along the property frontage there are large borders which are laid in bark and include a variety of seasonal shrubs and plants.

“The Byre” is located on the outskirts of Tarves, a pleasant rural village with a thriving local community. Having seen considerable expansion during recent years, Tarves has still retained its charm. There is a hotel, shop, pharmacy and coffee shop, while primary education is also catered for within the village. Secondary education is provided at either Ellon or Meldrum Academy. Situated within the rolling hills of Aberdeenshire, Tarves is located approximately 2 miles from Haddo House and Country Park, which provides great recreational facilities and is popular with families and dog walkers.
