    About this property

    • Originally forming part of a tenant farm on Drum Estate, the steadings at Meikle Eddieston were sold during the 1970s when Drum Castle was bequeathed to the National Trust. The steadings were converted into residential properties around 2005 to form three attractive properties. Beautifully presented, Fareview provides versatile and modern living accommodation which serves to accentuate the original features which remain, such as the deep silled windows and vaulted ceiling. Fareview also boasts some of the best uninterrupted countryside views in Aberdeenshire, taking in Clachnaben, Scolty Hill, Mount Keen and Lochnagar to name but a few.

      Beneath a canopied porch a wide wooden door with adjacent window panels leads into the well proportioned entrance vestibule. Fitted with a double storage cupboard with twin sliding doors, there is also access to a WC cloakroom, which includes a white two piece suite and full length panelled mirror.

      Twin partially glazed doors from the entrance vestibule lead into the warm and welcoming reception hall. There is ample space available for freestanding furniture and a glazed door allows access to the rear garden, while in the hall a cupboard houses the hot water cylinder.

      Double bedroom five is accessible from the reception hall, and is a versatile living space which would be equally suitable as a secondary home office if desired. Enjoying lovely views across the property frontage, bedroom five has the benefit of an en suite shower room, in addition to a large double wardrobe which also provides entry to an understair storage area.

      From the reception hall twin partially glazed doors lead into the inviting family/dining area, which lies on a split level to the striking sitting room while also including a spiral staircase to the spacious study/home office above. Fully carpeted, the study was previously utilised as a games room and includes a useful cupboard while providing far reaching views.

      With dual staircases leading down from the family/dining area, the peaceful sitting room is perfect for relaxing by the wood burning stove. Above there is an impressive vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, while a glazed door allows access to a small paved terrace outside.

      Twin partially glazed doors from the reception hall lead into the generously proportioned dining kitchen. With excellent space available for entertaining, glazed doors open onto the front and rear gardens. Designed by Drumoak Kitchens, there is an attractive range of base and wall units with integrated dishwasher, while the breakfast island includes undercounter storage and a solid wood surface. The remaining work surfaces are of polished granite and incorporate a Belfast ceramic sink. A range cooker with double oven and six ring gas hob is situated within a recess with mantel surround. The kitchen also enjoys the advantage of a pantry which provides a fantastic range of shelved storage.

      In close proximity to the kitchen is the utility room. Plumbed for white appliances, and housing the central heating boiler, there are base and wall units with a useful work surface area. A door leads from the utility room into the double garage which is fitted with electronically operated doors. With a further door leading out to the rear garden, there is also a central vehicular electric charging point.

      A carpeted staircase from the reception hall leads up to the living accommodation in the west wing. Benefitting from plentiful natural light, a semi-galleried landing looks down to the reception hall, while a ceiling hatch with folding ladders allows entry to the partially floored attic.

      The elegant and peaceful principal bedroom enjoys far reaching elevated views across the grounds towards the hills via a full length deep silled window. Fitted with a double fitted wardrobe with mirrored sliding doors, the principal bedroom also boasts a contemporary en suite bathroom, inclusive of a fully tiled shower enclosure with mains shower.

      Double bedroom two is of generous proportions with a bank of gable windows providing an excellent flow of natural light. Fully carpeted and with ample space for freestanding furniture, there is also a walk in double wardrobe.

      On a gentle split level, a further carpeted landing with skylight precedes double bedroom four. Of a good size with twin skylights, there is storage in the form of a fitted wardrobe. Bedroom four also lies next to a modern shower room with wet room area housing an electric shower and white two piece suite. Double bedroom three is a charming room of natural carpeting and pastel décor. With a good flow of natural light, there is also a double fitted wardrobe.

      Completing the living accommodation is the pristine family bathroom.
