Attractive three bedroom Victorian terraced home, forming part of a striking B listed property. Enjoying a peaceful countryside setting, the property lies just under 13 miles from Aberdeen.
Formerly the coach house buildings for Skene House, Skene House Court was originally built around 1860. A most attractive U-shaped building in the Scots baronial style, the machicolated central tower with arched recess and turrets were preserved following the conversion of the building into residential accommodation around 1983. 4 Skene House Court is an outstanding example of a period home with all the comforts of a modern abode which is immaculately presented for easy occupation. Exuding a peaceful ambience, this delightful home enjoys lovely garden and countryside views from deep silled windows to both front and rear.
From the cobbled courtyard, a curved and partially glazed entrance door leads into the welcoming, light and airy reception hall. A carpeted staircase ascends to the first floor, while the hall itself features Travertine tiled flooring with the benefit of underfloor heating. Within the hall there is a well appointed contemporary WC cloakroom with white two piece suite, in addition to two under-stair cupboards.
Enjoying dual aspect views over the garden grounds, the dining kitchen is a warm and inviting room. Fitted with traditional reclaimed Fired Earth floor tiles, the kitchen was designed by Drumoak Kitchens and features a good range of solid wood base and wall units. Granite work surfaces incorporate a Carron Phoenix Belfast
ceramic sink and a Rayburn cooking range in a deep shade of red. Within the kitchen there is an integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher, while an internal door leads into the single garage with up and over door. The garage has been thoughtfully planned to include a utility area and is plumbed for white appliances with a work surface area.
From the kitchen there is a door to the dining room, which is perfectly proportioned for formal dining and entertaining. A deep silled window overlooks the rear garden, while an open archway leads into the large sitting room which has a polished wood floor and a French door fitted with plantation shutters leading out to the rear garden.
Ascending the carpeted staircase, the galleried landing is bright and airy, with views over the central courtyard below and access to the fully floored attic via ceiling hatch with folding ladder.
The principal bedroom is tastefully appointed with dual aspect views over the garden grounds. Fully carpeted, the bedroom boasts a double fitted wardrobe with excellent depth which provides both shelf and hanging space.
Bedroom two is another appealing room which overlooks the rear gardens. Currently utilised as a spacious study, bedroom two is carpeted and features an extensive shelved alcove. Bedroom three also enjoys views over the rear of the property and benefits from a large fitted double wardrobe.
Completing the living accommodation is the modern bathroom which includes underfloor heating. Within the bathroom there is a white three piece suite with mains shower over the bath. Above the wash hand basin is a mirrored panel with inset lighting, while there is also a shelved display alcove and chrome wall mounted towel heater.
Skene House Court is situated within well established and beautifully maintained garden grounds, with lovely views across the peaceful surrounding countryside and fields. The delightful cobbled courtyard is shared amongst the residents, along with some of the lawned areas in front of the parking bays. To the rear of the building a shared driveway allows access to the single garage and a private garden which is directly accessible from the sitting room and is laid to lawn with well stocked borders. Across the shared driveway is a further exclusive area of walled garden, which is again laid to lawn with a selection of shrubs and ornamental trees.
