A rare opportunity has arisen to acquire a unique detached former Victorian manse set in over half an acre of well-presented garden grounds to the west of the city in the ever popular Kingswells village. The Old Manse was built circa 1859 and, although now enjoying the modern comforts of gas central heating and double glazing, the property boasts an impressive FOUR BEDROOMS AND FIVE PUBLIC ROOMS providing flexible family accommodation. The property has retained many of its fine period features such as moulded skirtings, feature shutters, dado rails, panelled doors, some original flooring and a striking front doorway. The extension to the side of the property has added to the living accommodation with an expansive, versatile games/cinema room, a WC and next to it a large bathroom with Jacuzzi bath, sauna and adjacent wet room. There is also access to the rear courtyard and garden and to the integral double garage. The property provides ample versatile accommodation spanning two floors and has been well maintained by the current owners. Early viewing is essential to appreciate all on offer.
On the ground floor the property is accessed via the original hard wood doorway into the inner hall with natural wood flooring and neutral decor. On one side there is a very well- proportioned living room with duel aspect windows allowing natural light to flood the room. The main focal point is the ornate fireplace and glazed panel French doors which open on to the formal dining room. The dining room has ample space for freestanding furniture to suit and has been beautifully presented. On the other side, a sizeable lounge with a window that overlooks the garden again has space to utilise as desired. The ornate fireplace also provides a main focal point. The office is the fourth public room on the ground floor and connects the old house with the newer extension. To the rear of the ground floor there is ample storage space with a large cupboard, spacious WC and finishing within the large dining kitchen. Fitted with a range of decorative wall and base mounted units, the kitchen itself is a real family hub with a rear vestibule hall giving access to the garden and driveway. The upper hallway has a roof velux for natural light and an attractive moulded ceiling archway gives access to the four double bedrooms, all of which have impressive proportions. The dressing room gives additional storage space and the accommodation is completed with a tiled shower room with velux window and a large separate bathroom finished with dado rail height tiling.
The ground floor extension is an impressive space and can also be accessed directly from the driveway if required. The inner hall leads to a large bathroom, sauna and wet room, and the hall also gives access to the double garage, WC and impressive games room to the rear. The games room has been utilised by the current owners for several family parties and provides a superb space for the growing family. Equally, if any new purchaser wanted to work from home this space could be configured to suit.
LOCATION Kingswells is a popular residential suburb just to the west of Aberdeen city which is easily accessible by good road and public transport links. Kingswells benefits from a community centre, medical centre, pharmacy and a selection of local shops. This particular property is also close to the local primary school. The location is extremely convenient for access to the Primefour Kingswells Business Park and the oil related offices at Westhill.

Continue to the junction, then turn left into Fairley Road. The Old Manse is the last entrance on the right hand side, before the junction with Kingswood Drive.
GARDEN On entering the garden from the road, the impressive stone dyke runs the length of the boundary and the mature cypress hedge gives a high degree of privacy to both the drive and house.

The rear courtyard has a rotary dryer and is the perfect patio area to enjoy alfresco dining. The stone built outbuilding to the rear of the property provides additional garden storage.
