    About this property

      Dating back to about 1930 this delightful 1.5 storey period home benefits from a contemporary rear extension built around 20 years ago. At the same time there was a complete refit internally including full insulation and underfloor heating . The front elevation is double fronted and has some pink dressed granite blocks. Internally the property is the perfect balance of old meets new. There are high quality contemporary striped carpets in the hallway, staircase and landings and a combination of carpets and Amtico and tiled flooring elsewhere. A further attribute of the presentation is the lovely oak coloured woodwork throughout much of the home.

      Deceptively spacious, an entrance vestibule leads to the elongated hallway with understair storage cupboards A delightful formal sitting room has a cornice, centre rose, fireplace with stone polished hearth, housing a gas fire and large bay window to take full advantage of the harbour and marina views. Opposite, bedroom one has lovely views to the harbour with a similar aspect. The tiled shower room is modern with a corner shower enclosure, pedestal washbasin, WC and a corner cabinet. This room could easily be adapted as an en suite to the front bedroom if required.

The galleried landing which overlooks the dining room has corner fitted desk furniture to create an extensive study area.

    Local information

    • The town of Peterhead was founded by fishermen and developed as a planned settlement. In 1593 the construction of Peterhead's first harbour, Port Henry, encouraged the growth of Peterhead as a fishing port and established a base for trade. A lifeboat station was first established in 1865. A new phase of growth was initiated in the 1970s with Peterhead becoming a major oil industry service centre, and the completion of the nearby St Fergus gas terminal. At this time, considerable land holdings were allocated for industrial development. It retains a relatively diverse economy, including food processing, textiles, service industries and, still importantly, fishing. Local schooling includes Anna Ritchie Special Education School, Peterhead Academy and Peterhead New Community Campus
